Low Histamine Pizza Recipe (Dough + Sauce)

Pizza has got to be one of the most-craved foods for those on a low histamine diet. In fact, I’m craving pizza right. now. But finding a low histamine pizza dough recipe was almost as tough as finding a decent sauce. So after a lot of research, a few toaster oven-scaled experiments, and at least one extra-crispy pie, I’ve finally developed something I’m proud of.

I won’t blabber on any longer, but please leave a comment if you have any questions, and I’ll keep this recipe updated if I have any upgrades to add! Do you have any fave low histamine pizza toppings to add?

Total Time: 1 hour 17 minutes

A simple low histamine pizza dough recipe with no yeast and no gluten!

Ingredients

  • 2 cups cassava flour, [Otto's brand is really good]
  • 1 cup almond flour, [NOT the same as almond meal; make sure you buy almond FLOUR!]
  • 1 tsp. sea salt
  • 3 Tbsp coconut oil
  • 4 tsp. baking powder, [NOT baking soda, as it won't have the same effect]
  • 1 & 3/4 cups water (+/-1 Tbsp.)

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F/175°C.
  2. Measure out and mix all ingredients together until they're very smooth, about 3 minutes.
  3. Put the dough in the fridge to proof for 15 minutes. i.e. let the baking powder do its work.
  4. Spread the dough evenly across the baking sheet and bake for 20-22 minutes, checking it after 15 minutes to make sure it doesn't get too dry.
  5. Top pizza base with sauce of choice (& histamine-friendly bacon if you can tolerate it) and bake for another 15 minutes. I HIGHLY recommend trying my red pepper sauce as a base.
  6. Optional: once the pizza is done, add pecans or pili nuts & fresh basil, and bake for another 5 minutes.
  7. Let sit for a few minutes after it gets out of the oven, then cut and enjoy!

Notes

This pizza freezes quite well; to reheat, just pop a piece in the toaster oven at 300°F/150°C for 7-10 minutes, and enjoy!

Various Topping Ideas:

  • handful of arugula
  • torn basil
  • chopped & roasted pecans
  • some kind of organic, locally-sourced meat (preferably pork)
  • fresh grass-fed ricotta cheese
  • a bit of chopped fresh oregano
