I am here not to tell you that you should drop your family’s favourite pizza recipe, stop making pizza or that pizza is bad for you. No, none of that is true. What I am here to offer you is an easy flourless oatmeal pizza crust solution, if you are not “a flour girl” (oops, that sounds weird but I like it) like me and are looking for a simple yet lighter Friday night pizza solution.

What I mostly love about a rolled oats pizza crust is an absence of flour mess.

Oatmeal crust does hold toppings quite well and no need for a fork and knife.

How to Make Oatmeal Pizza Crust

Here is a quick overview how to make oatmeal pizza crust.

Oatmeal, salt, seasoning and eggs in food processor.

In a food processor, add cheese and process until fine crumbs form.

Then add eggs, oats and spices and process more.

I tried to keep cheese and eggs to a minimum but oat flour pizza dough needs a binder since oats do not contain gluten like wheat, to expand and bind together.

The pizza dough comes out pretty thick.

The best way to form a pizza crust is by dropping spoonfuls of dough on a baking sheet and flattening it with wet hands.

Wet hands are crucial and think of it similar to working with clay process. Your edges do not have to be perfect, neither does the shape.

Any shape baking sheet or pizza stone lined with parchment paper works for an oatmeal crust pizza.

You can also bake both crusts at same time on both racks. The top one will bake a tiny bit longer, so once the bottom rack pizza crust is ready, take it out and place a top one on a bottom for a few more minutes.

Toppings Ideas

OK, now onto the healthy BBQ chicken pizza I have going on here.

You can turn your oatmeal crust into any pizza you want:

  • Cheese pizza for kids
  • Vegan pizza with only veggies and dairy free cheese
  • Meaty pizza.

I made a double batch of healthy BBQ sauce, used some for pizza and we still have leftovers.

So that’s it. Easy peasy. Enjoy!

Oatmeal Pizza Crust:

Healthy BBQ Chicken Oatmeal Pizza:

  • 1 lb boneless chicken thighs and/or breasts cut up in small pieces
  • Healthy BBQ Sauce *
  • Favourite cheese sliced
  • Red onion thinly sliced
  • Cilantro chopped
  • Oatmeal Pizza Crusts


  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees, line 2 pizza stones, round pans or large baking sheets with unbleached parchment paper and spray with cooking spray.
  • In a food processor, add cheese and process on High until fine crumbs form. Add oats, salt, garlic powder, herbs and eggs; process on High until thick dough forms.
  • Divide dough between 2 previously prepared baking sheets placing it in dollops. Using wet hands, flatten dough and shape it into round thin crust, about 1/4 an inch (just think of the thickness you would like your crust to be – dough doesn’t rise).
  • Bake for 25 minutes (place both trays in the oven at once and then just bake the top one on a bottom rack a few extra minutes). Remove from the oven, top with sauce, your favourite toppings and cheese. Bake at 450 degrees F until cheese is melted.
  • BBQ Chicken Pizza: In a large non-stick ceramic skillet, add chicken and cook for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add desired amount of BBQ sauce and turn off the heat. Spread desired amount of sauce on previously baked oatmeal pizza crust, top with desired amount of cheese, BBQ chicken, red onions and cilantro. Bake at 450 degrees F until cheese is melted.
  • You can hold pizza by the slice, it holds very well and the crust is very crunchy and thin like on a thin crust pizza. If you like that! Enjoy!


  • Freeze: Crust only. Fully cook, cool completely and freeze in a large Ziploc bag for up to 3 months. Bake with toppings as per instructions + a few extra minutes.
  • *Make double batch of the sauce – it is so easy to make, goes with anything and keeps refrigerated for weeks.

    This looks great and I look forward to trying it tomorrow..
    Going to top it with a homemade sauce (Bolgnese style) with veggies and mild turkey sausage, top with cheese and some extra veg, maybe mushrooms, onion and olives (kalamata and green).
    Thanks Olena

      Just made and ate this, it’s excellent, absolutely delicious, and completely enjoyable with no wheat belly! I highly recommend it.

      I adjusted the recipe to make a large bake pan 10″x15″ (2.5 cups oats and 3 eggs plus a little butter (1.5 oz and virgin olive oil, maybe 1-2 tablespoons). My oven is hotter than normal so I reduced temperature and the time a little.

      Thanks Olena

    I love your website . I made couple recipes from you. It was easy, healthy and the ingredients already all usually what I buy and on my pantry. Thank you so much !

  3. You have been very inspiring to me to find balance in my family’s life. I enjoy reading your blog every day. Please share your kobucha experience. I have been buying it and would love to be able to make it since it is SO expensive.

    1. Hi Heather. Good! In a way, “it takes a village” to be healthy these days among all the info everywhere, particularly “thanks” to social media. I have been struggling with a lot of noise the past few years and am really enjoying sharing my experience as I am digging myself out of the rabbit hole.
      I am starting to write kombucha post today. Still need a few weeks to grow a new scoby while taking pics along. Soon! It is VERY expensive to buy. It hurt so much to pay $4 for a bottle I used for pictures and then drank in 5 mins. Wow, that is as expensive as wine.

    Yummmmm You know whats funny is I have a recipe for individual oatmeal crust which I’ve only ever used for breakfast, topped with normal oatmeal toppings. But this looks delicious and great for people with sensitivities! I love using oats and oat flour instead of gluten free baking flour!

    1. It would never occur to me to make a breakfast pizza since I do not like cooking breakfast, like at all. I am still half asleep or am so tired from cooking lunches and dinners haha.

  5. Can’t wait until I can try this! I am not a ‘flour-girl’ either, though in the 1960’s I could have been a ‘flower-girl’ in junior high school! I had the vertical red, white, and blue striped hip-hugger bell-bottoms and halter top with fringe, sewn by my sister!

    But more than one slice of whole wheat organic sprouted bread means major bloat for me also. I mostly just skip wheat and go for cooked whole grains.

    I love pizza but have been making mine on large portobello mushrooms tops. This looks so much more tasty and pizza like, leaving the mushrooms for the toppings as they should be!

    As soon as I can chew well….. soon!

    1. I have always been jealous of American traditions like flower girls, cheer leaders, prom etc. A chance to wear a beautiful outfit!!!
