Perfectly Paleo Pizza

Today's recipe is a pretty good pizza substitute, if I say so myself. It's based on a recipe in the book Grain-Free Gourment by Jodi Bager and Jenny Lass (the book's website is here).

Ingredients (for one pizza "crust")
  • 1/2 cup almond flour
  • 1 egg
  • 1 Tbsp grated parmesan cheese
  • 1 tsp olive oil or other oil
  • 1/2 tsp dried oregano
  • 1/2 tsp dried basil
  • 1/4 tsp dried thyme
  • large pinch salt
  • (optional) 1/4 tsp garlic powder, if you like that sort of thing (I do)

  1. Preheat your oven to 325 degrees F.

  2. Combine all ingredients in a bowl and mix until it forms a thick, sticky batter.

  3. Spoon the dough onto a piece of parchment paper that's been lightly oiled (this will prevent it from sticking to the paper) on a cookie sheet.

  4. Pat the dough into a thin circle, about 20cm/8in in diameter (I use a piece of plastic wrap so my hand doesn't get sticky).

  5. Spoon some tomato paste on top and spread it out to use as the "sauce".

  6. Put whatever you want on your pizza (I like sliced tomatoes and sliced grilled chicken), and cover with grated cheese.

  7. Bake for about 20 minutes, turning the oven up to "broil" for the last couple of minutes to brown the cheese slightly.

You won't really be able to pick it up and eat it with your hands like traditional pizza, but it's good nonetheless!
