* AIP pizza is definitely not the same pizza that most of us grew up with, but it can still be delicious! Make the process a little easier by using AIP Rustic Bread Mix to form your crust in less time. You will need:

  • 1 pkg Truly AIP Rustic Bread Mix
  • 3 Tbsp. oil
  • 1 cup cold water, plus 2-4 Tbsp. more, as needed

Preheat oven to 425 and line two baking sheets or pizza pans with parchment. Mix ingredients together to form a soft dough. Using wet hands, press half of dough into an 11-12" circle on one pan, making a slight lip around the edge. Repeat with second half of dough. Bake each crust for 12-15* minutes until lightly browned, add toppings and return to oven for 5-8 minutes.

* Initial baking time will depend on thickness of crust.
