Serves: 3


  • 1⁄2 teaspoon active dry yeast
  • 1⁄2 teaspoon sugar
  • 1⁄2 cup warm water (110-115°F), divided
  • 3⁄4 cup arrowroot flour
  • 1⁄2 cup Simple Truth™ Finely Ground Almond Flour
  • 1 tablespoon coconut flour
  • 1 tablespoon ground flax seed
  • 1 teaspoon ground psyllium husk
  • 1⁄2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1⁄4 teaspoon salt
  • 1⁄2 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
  • 5 teaspoons olive oil, divided
  • 1⁄3 cup pizza sauce
  • 3 ounces shredded mozzarella cheese


  • Preheat a pellet smoker, grill or oven to 450°F.
  • Place yeast, sugar and 1 tablespoon water in a large bowl. Allow to stand for 5 minutes or until yeast is foamy.
  • Meanwhile, whisk together arrowroot, almond and coconut flours, flax seed, psyllium husk, baking soda and salt in a bowl. Set aside.
  • Add dry ingredients, 1 tablespoon olive oil, remaining 7 tablespoons of water and vinegar to yeast mixture. Stir until well-combined and the dough is sticky.
  • Let dough rest at room temperature for at least 45 minutes. Dough should look puffy but may not be doubled.
  • Meanwhile, add remaining 2 teaspoons olive oil to an 8-10” cast iron skillet.
  • Transfer the dough to the skillet, using your hands to pat into an even layer in the pan.
  • Place skillet on the smoker or grill, or in the oven. Cook 8 minutes or until crust looks set on the top and the bottom is starting to brown.
  • Top crust with sauce, cheese and desired toppings. Return to the smoker, grill or oven and cook another 10-12 minutes, or until cheese is melted and the edges of the crust are golden brown. Refrigerate leftovers.
  • Tip: If you don’t have a pellet smoker, you can bake the pizza in an oven set to 450°F or on a grill set to medium to medium-high heat.
