Instructions

Crust

  1. Whisk together the eggs and mayonnaise in a bowl. Mix the dry ingredients together in a separate bowl.
  2. Fold the egg and mayonnaise mixture in with the dry ingredients. Mix into a smooth batter. Let sit for a couple of minutes.
  3. Heat up a frying pan on medium-high heat. Add the oil to the pan.
  4. Once the oil is sizzling, pour the batter onto the pan. Each crust should be about 3 inches (8 cm) in diameter. You will end up with about 6-8 pizza crusts.
  5. Fry for one minute on each side, or until golden. Remove from the heat and place the crusts on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
  6. Toppings

  7. Preheat the oven to 400°F (200°C) using the oven's broil setting.
  8. Apply a layer of tomato paste, pesto, or cream cheese to each crust.
  9. Add the toppings of your choice. Sprinkle salt, pepper, and basil or oregano on top. Add the cheese and drizzle with olive oil.
  10. Bake in the oven for 5-10 minutes or until the cheese has melted and the pizzas have turned a nice color.

Tips

You can use any topping for the mini pizzas. We have chosen a mixture of seafood, meat and vegetarian options. Other nice alternatives are cooked ham, bacon, or tuna fish. You could even make the green pizzas “more green,” by using green bell peppers, chili peppers, or artichoke hearts. Onion and garlic are perfect on these too.

When it comes to the cheese, a mix of Mozarella and Parmesan cheese is optimal, but you can also choose something else. Blue cheese, feta cheese or goat cheese will provide a great flavor addition if you like more flavorful cheeses.

    I always get excited when a crust recipe uses coconut flour (I most readily have this on hand). The dough mixed up easily and fried nicely...I did mine a little larger and they puffed up so in the future I'd portion accordingly. Coconut flour lends a dryness to bread dishes and this is no exception. It's not unpleasant you just easily recognize it. On a side note I think the dough would be excellent as a biscuit! I used my basil tomato paste (OMG yum, the basil lends a natural sweetness), provolone cheese, and a little bacon. The cheese was fine, but the bacon was devine! The smokiness seaped into the crust and also lent flavor to the sauce. I think bacon would be a staple when I make these, and yes I plan on making these again. The dough is great when you don't have much time and would like to prepare some ahead for pizzas, sandwiches, biscuits substitute. Very good recipe that satisfied my pizza craving.

    I've just made the bases only and a good tip for disguising the coconut taste is to use garlic powder. I've even eaten three cold with my brunch and without any toppings they were delicious, I bet they would be good toasted and topped with butter!

    I didn't like this crust at all!! My bf loved it, though...so I gave it 3 stars. I am going to try a different crust recipe in the future.

    I’m so confused...do you drop small amounts of the batter into the oil? How do you get a pizza shape if the batter is runny? Many thanks 🙏

    If you drop it in in small amounts, the hot oil will cook it and hold it together.
