An easy and healthy pizza crust made with buckwheat, eggs, garlic, and herbs. A great alternative to pizza crusts made with flour and perfect for those who cannot eat gluten.


  • 1/2 cup raw buckwheat groats
  • 1 cup water
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt
  • 4 large garlic cloves, minced (or to taste)
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1/2 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil


  1. Place the buckwheat groats and water in a small saucepan. Add a pinch of salt and bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat to low, stir, and cover. Cook for 15 minutes. Remove from the heat and let it cool.
  2. Once cooled, place the cooked buckwheat in a food processor fitted with the ‘S’ blade. Add the eggs, salt, garlic, baking powder, oregano, basil, and olive oil. Process until smooth.
  3. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  4. Scoop the dough out onto the baking sheet. Lightly wet your hands and carefully press the dough down into an oval measuring about 1/4 of an inch thick. (The thickness is really up to you; a thicker crust will take more time to bake, while a thinner crust will take less time.)
  5. Bake for 17-18 minutes, or until golden brown on top and it no longer sticks to the parchment paper.
  6. If topping with cheese to make buckwheat cheese bread (as per my suggestion in the post), reduce the oven temperature to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Top the crust with 3/4 cup of grated cheese, return to the oven to bake for 5 more minutes, and broil for 1 minute.
  7. If using the crust for pizza, top with your desired toppings and return to the oven for 10 minutes at 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
