This gluten free dairy free pizza recipe is also yeast free, and can be made vegan and paleo.
If you felt like you had to give up pizza because of food allergies or intolerances, think again! You can still make pizza without gluten or dairy, and it still tastes delicious.
Once you start nestling into this new healthy eating thing, you’ll realize you don’t actually have to give up as many things as you thought. You just have to learn a new way of making them differently. And there are many ways to do this, I promise you. 😊
Healthy alternatives to white flour
There are a lot of foods that can be swapped out for other more healthy alternatives.
With this gluten-free dairy free pizza recipe for example, instead of white flour you will use a gluten free alternative, and there are many of those available in your average grocery store these days. These gluten-free flours usually contain ingredients such as rice, corn, potato starch, tapioca starch, buckwheat, chickpea or others. White flour and gluten-free flour can generally be swapped in a 1:1 ratio as well.
You can also use cassava flour which is made from a starchy tuber – aka a vegetable! which is lower in carbohydrates and other anti-nutrients than it’s wheat filled counterpart. Cassava flour is probably one of the closest things to wheat flour that I have found that does not contain grains. I provide substitutions below to make this recipe with cassava flour.
Product brands I recommend for this recipe
- Bob’s Red Mill 1-to-1 gluten free baking flour
- Earth Island mozzarella shreds
- Eden Foods pizza pasta sauce
Recipe substitutions or variations

Olive oil substitutions: Instead of using olive oil, you could also use avocado oil or an oil blend such as Chosen Foods blend which contains safflower, avocado and coconut oil.
Vegan cheese substitutions: If you aren’t able to access Earth Island mozzarella shreds, you can use any other type of vegan cheese such as Daiya or miyoko’s mozz cheese.
Pizza sauce substitutions: If you aren’t able to find a clean ingredient pizza sauce, you can also just use canned tomato sauce. For more flavour you can optionally add your own seasonings such as garlic powder, salt, oregano and basil.
