  • Author: Nikki Yelton
  • Total Time: 1 hr 30 mins
  • Yield: 8 servings


This Vegan Pesto Pizza Recipe is loaded with good-for-you ingredients and helps support a healthy gut, body, and mind.


2 ½ cups Gluten Free All Purpose Flour

¼ cup Ground Flaxseed

1 ½ tbs Psyllium Husk Powder

1 tsp Baking Powder

1 tsp Sea Salt

½ tsp Instant Yeast

1 ½ cups Warm Water

½ cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil (plus more for greasing)

½ cup Dairy Free Pesto

Toppings of choice


  1. In a mixing bowl, combine flaxseed, psyllium husk, baking powder, salt, and yeast.

  2. Add the warm water and oil. Mix with a fork, then knead with your hands and form a ball. The dough should be a bit sticky, but hold it’s shape. If too wet, add more psyllium husk. If too dry, add water. Cover with a damp towel and let sit at room temperature for 60 minutes.

  3. Adjust the oven racks to the top and preheat the oven to 500 F. Place a pizza stone or baking sheet in the oven.

  4. Grease your fingers with a bit of olive oil. Transfer the dough to a piece of aluminum foil and gently press into a thin, round layer, roughly ¼” thick. Transfer into the preheating stone or sheet and bake for 8 to 10 minutes.

  5. Spread the pesto evenly over the pizza and top with toppings. Bake for an additional 7 to 9 minutes. Let cool slightly and enjoy!


You can refrigerate this pizza for up to 7 days in an airtight container or freeze it for up to 3 months. We all know pizza is amazing even when reheated!
