Why You’ll Love This Recipe
Simple: This recipe is simple to make. Just start out by mixing the ingredients for the crust and divide the dough out into 12 muffin cups. Bake the crust and then add the toppings. Just place in the oven for 5 more minutes before they’re ready to enjoy! It’s as easy as that!
Ingredients: These pizza bites are made with gluten free and grain free ingredients. You can also make this recipe dairy free by using non dairy cheese or simply omit the cheese.
Family Friendly: My family loves these gluten free pizza bites. Every time we have made them, they don’t last long because everyone devours them. The bites are also the perfect size for my toddler's hands and she loves to be able to pick them up and eat them all by herself.
Ingredients For Homemade Pizza Bites
- Almond flour: Almond flour is the perfect grain free option for these pizza bites.
- Arrowroot flour: If you have trouble finding arrowroot in your grocery store's baking aisle, check the health food or gluten free aisle. Arrowroot can also be found easily on Amazon.
- Baking powder: Gives a little bit of rise to the pizza dough.
- Salt: To add a little more flavor to crust dough.
- Eggs: There are two eggs in this recipe. I have not tested this recipe with egg replacer or using flax eggs instead so I don’t know if that would work or not.
- Olive oil: Two tablespoons of olive oil is added to the crust dough. You can also use a little bit of olive oil to spread on your hands before pressing the dough down in the muffin cups to prevent the dough from sticking.
- Pizza sauce: Use a homemade pizza sauce or store bought. You could also use marinara sauce here in a pinch.
- Mozzarella: To make this recipe dairy free, you can use a dairy free mozzarella or omit the cheese.
- Pepperoni: We usually make this recipe with either pepperoni or cooked sausage.
- Green onion: Chopped fresh green onion adds a delicious flavor to this pizza.
- Italian seasoning: Sprinkle a little bit of Italian seasoning on the pizza sauce when assembling the pizza bites.
How To Make Gluten Free Pizza Bites
Step 1: Preheat the oven to 400 degrees fahrenheit. Grease a regular sized muffin pan with cooking spray. Set aside.
Step 2: In a medium bowl, add the almond flour, arrowroot flour, baking powder, and salt. Mix until combined. Then add the eggs and olive oil. *Add the cold water if needed, one tbsp at a time. The final dough should be a slightly stickier biscuit-like dough.
Step 3: Split the dough evenly between the 12 muffin cups (about 1 tbsp each). Press the dough down into the cups using oiled hands or a spoon. Bake the crust for 10 minutes.
Step 4: Once the crust is baked, remove from the oven and spread the pizza sauce on the top of each of the 12 crusts. Next, sprinkle the Italian seasoning, green onion, pepperoni, and mozzarella cheese.
Step 5: Bake the pizza bites for another 5 minutes or until the cheese is melted and the crust is slightly golden around the edges.
Step 6: Allow the pizza bites to cool for 1-2 minutes before removing from the pan. Enjoy!

Store any leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3 days. Reheat using the oven or microwave.
