Grain-Free Deep Dish Pizza
Makes one 12-inch deep dish pizza
2 cups tapioca flour
1/2 cup coconut flour
2 large eggs
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
3 tablespoons olive oil
1 teaspoon Italian Seasoning Blend
1 tablespoon of butter
Toppings of your choice: cheese, marinara, pepperoni, sausage, peppers, onions, olives, etc.
Place a 12-inch cast iron or enameled cast iron skillet in the oven and preheat to 425ºF. Let the oven preheat and then keep the skillet in the oven for 10 minutes after the oven has reached 425ºF.
Place the tapioca flour, coconut flour, eggs, sea salt, Italian seasoning, and olive oil in the bowl of a food processor or blender (do not try this in a small food processor or mini blender – the mixture will be too thick). Pour in 1 cup of boiling water and immediately process until smooth. Let the mixture sit for 10 minutes (if it sits for longer than 10 minutes, it will be totally fine).
Remove the skillet from the oven. Add 1 tablespoon of palm shortening, lard or tallow and swirl to coat (I don’t use olive oil here, because the oil will burn and oxidize due to the high heat). Pour (or spoon) the dough into the hot skillet and spread evenly with a spatula. Place in the oven and bake for 15 minutes.
Remove the crust from the oven and put your toppings on top. Place the pizza back in the oven and bake for an additional 20-25 minutes until the toppings are hot and the cheese is bubbling and just turning golden brown. Let the pizza sit for 10 minutes before serving.
