  • 1 eggplant

For the crust:

  • 1 cup arrowroot starch or tapioca flour
  • ⅓ cup coconut flour
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ½ cup unsweetened milk of choice
  • ¼ cup grass fed butter
  • ¼ cup water
  • 3 cloves garlic, pressed or minced
  • 1 egg

For the topping:

  • 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • 1 cup diced fresh tomatoes or 1/3 cup chopped sun-dried tomatoes
  • 2 cups spinach
  • 1 cup grated goat cheese
  • ¼ cup chopped fresh thyme, rosemary and basil
  • olive oil for drizzling
  • cracked pepper


  1. Place a pizza stone in the oven and heat the oven to 450°F.
  2. Slice the eggplant in thin circles, about 1/8 inch thick. On a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper, arrange the eggplant in a single layer and sprinkle with salt. Let the eggplant soften while you prepare the flatbread.

To make the crust:

  1. In a medium mixing bowl, whisk together the arrowroot starch, coconut flour and 1/4 teaspoon salt.
  2. In a small pot, heat the milk, butter, water and garlic over medium heat. Remove from the heat just as it simmers. Add the hot liquid ingredients to the dry ingredients and mix to combine. Allow the mixture to cool slightly.
  3. In a small bowl, whisk the egg. Add the egg to the batter and mix well; allow the mixture to sit for 5 minutes.

For the pizza:

  1. Spread the dough in a thin layer on parchment paper the size of the pizza stone. Carefully transfer the dough to the hot pizza stone.
  2. Bake the flatbread and eggplant for 15 minutes, then remove them from the oven, leaving the pizza stone.
  3. Brush the eggplant lightly with balsamic vinegar. Add the spinach, eggplant, tomatoes and cheese to the pizza dough. Return the pizza to the pizza stone and bake for 10-15 minutes or until cheese is melted and tomatoes are soft.
  4. Top with the herbs, olive oil and cracked pepper. Serve immediately.
