Plantain Pizza Crust

Gluten-free meals are not for everybody. But even people without a celiac disease could benefit from eating gluten-free. You can be looking for easy ways to cut carbs or might have a non-celiac gluten sensitivity that’s causing you digestive distress.

In that case, there are so many options to swap ingredients in your recipes, like enjoying a pizza with gluten-free dough, a cauliflower crust or what about a base made out of tostones?! The tostón pizza might be an Instagram fad, but it’s indeed delicious! And you can customize it however you want. Here’s our take on it.

Tostón Pizza


  • 2 Plantains
  • Olive oil for frying and greasing
  • 2 Tbsp of butter
  • 2 Tbsp of flour
  • ¼ Cup of water
  • Salt to taste
  • Pizza sauce (We made our own)
  • ½ Cup of mozzarella 
  • 1 Handful of fresh basil
  • 1 Cup of local ham
Takes , serves 2.


  1. Peel and slice the plantain, as if you were making tostones. About 1 inch thick. Fry them on both sides until golden. Let them cool on a paper towel. 
  2. Mash the plantains and add the flour and water. Combine well with your hands. Season to taste and form the base of your pizza.
  3. Grease the pizza stone with a little oil. Place your base and add a little bit of sauce. Add the ham and the cheese. Bake in a preheaded oven at 350 degrees until cheese is completely melted. Serve with basil.
