    I really appreciate this recipe (especially the crust) but wow how can pizza containing dairy cheese be considered ‘Gut-friendly’? I’m glad cow’s cheese isn’t listed but usually, like I’m pretty sure you’ve stated in videos before, that those with gut conditions should discontinue dairy because the effect it has on the gut lining –those with wheat sensitivities/gut conditions also are generally sensitive to dairy as well. Nut cheeses are also super high in fat and make great soft cheeses for pizza time as well – that sounds like a better option.

    Dairy from other animals was never designed for us and for full grown humans to eat anyways — milk is designed for growing babies. The only reason we still can eat it as adults is because we keep ingesting it regularly, else we’d develop a resistance to it. I wish you took a stronger stance on it and also talked about the effect it has on the build up of mucus in the lymphatic system, which leads to a whole host of health issues including the skin rashes, pimples and cancers.

      Well said Benjamin!! I was thinking the exact same thing whilst reading the ingredients list

      • Benjamin says:

        Thanks Lee! Ever tried making nut cheese before? Cashew cheese would be amazing on this

      • amzee says:

        Going dairy free did nothing to help my pimples, mucus congestion, bad digestion, bloating nor sensitive stomach so I guess it all depends on what works for you compared to facts and opinions.

    • Phyllis Dufrene says:

      Dr Axe has a detailed blog about this about subject… I found it helpful 😊

      • Benjamin says:

        I appreciate the link and I’ve heard how goat’s milk products are more easily ingestible than cow’s (makes sense because they’re a similar size to us). I have no doubt that ALL milk has great nutrient properties, because it is in fact designed by nature to grow babies really effectively. We’re not babies and we wouldn’t continue to drink the the milk of humans as we age? SO why consume products made from other animals’ lactations? If there wasn’t so much “intolerance” and gut issues going on out there I might be able to accept it, but if we really feel into it we know we’re feeding a bad addiction and calling it a ‘Healthy’ form of nutrition, even though its been shown to feed dis-ease in the body.

    • Karen says:

      I’m not exactly sure how long the human has been drinking animals milk, but I’m sure it’s been a very long time and like other foods we have been eating, wheat, etc, it was probably okay for us in the beginning, but in the past 50 to 100 years humans have started processing those foods and our bodies have not been able to eat correctly those processed foods. I would think drinking raw milk and eating wheat that’s from many thousand years ago would be different to our systems then what we eat today.

  6. Rebecca says:

    I love the ingredients. However need more information about size and how many people the recipes feed. What size pizza pan?
    I downloaded the free recipe book but the recipes do not say how many servings are made or what size those servings would be.
    Please finish your lovely recipes :))

  7. Sonia aghiarian says:

    Thank you for sharing your delicious receipes. Looking forward to more receipes.

  8. Lula Henderson says:

    As others pointed out, there is nothing healthy about adding those types of cheeses. Apparently, Dr. Axe is very confused and/or he has a lot to learn about proper digestion!! Get it together Dr. Axe and do not make unhealthy recommendations. It is Very Careless & Very Irresponsible on your behalf!!

  9. Shelley Walker says:

    After trying many other recipes for Gluten free pizza this is by far the best I’ve ever eaten. I followed the recipes adding all the ingredients fir the topping only thing I added not on the recipe was some cubed cooked chicken breast. I thought the amount of pepper flakes was way too heavy it overpowered everything else. Maybe 1/2 teaspoon would be enough. Well done Dr Axe it was great.
