Here is a recipe for a paleo pizza. I’m going to give it a try and post how it tastes. If anyone else wants to try let us know how you like it.
One of the more popular challenges we hear from folks about switching over to a predominately Paleo diet is, “no more pizza and beer?” But I have found a scrumptious substitute, which in my mind, is even better than regular or even gluten-free pizza! Behold! Primal Pizza! This recipe from Mark’s Daily Apple is super easy and quick to make.
2 cups almond meal (found at Trader Joe’s)
1 tsp olive oil
½ tsp salt
Mix all ingredients together to form the dough and roll out on a non-stick pan as thin as possible (a rolling pin is useful). Bake crust at 350 degrees for about 15 minutes or until slightly browned.
While your crust is baking, this is the time to prep your toppings! Your choices of toppings are endless! I like to fry some bacon and then caramelize onions in the bacon grease…yum! Defrost some pre-cooked shrimp, chop up and get out those herbs & spices!
Take out pizza crust, slather on some tomato paste/sauce sprinkle a little cheese/goat cheese, bacon, onions, shrimp, Italian seasonings and red pepper flakes (optional) and put back in the oven for another 15 minutes.
Slice up, pair it with a nice green salad and I like to drizzle it all with a little balsamic vinaigrette, a Gluten-Free Beer and voila! Pizza and Beer on a Friday night!
