Yeast can be tricky.  I’ve messed up countless doughs, batters, etc. because the “warm” water was either too hot or too cold.  It’s like Goldie Locks – the water has to be JUST RIGHT. 

For those of you without a kitchen thermometer, or simply the patience for the perfect Goldie Locks water, I came up with a yeast-free pizza dough recipe.


Paleo Pizza Dough

 1 cup Almond Meal

½ cup Potato Starch

½ cup Arrowroot Flour

2 ½ tbsp. olive oil

1 egg

1/3 cup water

1 tsp salt


  1. Combine the flours and salt in a mixing bowl
  2. Add the egg, olive, oil and water to the flour mixture
  3. Mix with a spoon or your hands to combine into a dough
  4. Press the dough into and 8 inch circle
  5. Bake for 6 minutes
  6. Add toppings
  7. Return the pizza to the oven for a couple minutes
