  • Help: primal pizza crust without a food processor nor almond/coconut flours

    Good afternoon, dear PB community!

    Well, the title says it all: tomorrow I'd love to try my hand at making a primal pizza, but I do not have access to a food processor (only to a hand blender) nor almond/coconut flours/meal (I can't find them ANYWHERE despite my successive tries).

    Any help would be immensely appreciated!
    Thank you for your time.

    Stuff I Make My Husband: The Great Pizza Experiment <- you could do the cream cheese, spinach, zucchini, or shredded cheese pizza. Of those, the cream cheese is my favorite. Or you could make meatza.

      Can you get tapioca starch/flour? It's really common as a GF flour option, so it's pretty common (I usually find it next to the flour with gluten-free options). Here's a recipe where you just ix it with egg, some cheese, and baking powder. It makes an EXCELLENT crust!

            Wow, thank you everyone for the links and sugestions!

            The cream cheese and shredded cheese crust options seem the most feasible ones (aka uncomplicated) for me. Meatza too!
            Another option (I then googled a little) would be the pizza fritatta.

            P.S. - Erica, I remember your sucess story, it did amaze me. And your blog is splendid, very useful and tasty. The great pizza experiment is something just superb, glorious, unique...!

              To be honest, when I want pizza, I eat pizza. Nothing can beat real pizza. I just don't eat it often.

                Coffee grinder + whole almonds = almond flour.

                  Paleo Pizza w/ bison sausage, bell pepper, white onion, raw parmesan cheese, and Applegate Farms pepperoni.

                  Crust is almond meal (you can buy it or make it yourself), 2 eggs, baking soda, rosemary, basil, and garlic powder [modified base recipe from Everyday Paleo]. Sauce was homemade marinara (tomatoes, tomato paste, basil, touch of red wine, garlic, onion powder).

                  Crust is a little heavy... 2c of almond meal is about 21 grams of Omega-6 (1 piece being roughly 2.6 grams) not to mention 12g of fat per slice. I consumed one piece and was full.

                    Here are a few links to the almond/coconut flours that the OP had mentioned she had been looking for:

                    Nuts Online - nut flours (until I didn't the search, I hadn't even been aware that pistachio, cashew or brazil nut flours existed!)

                    Nuts Online - organic coconut flour
                    Organic Coconut Flour (Gluten Free) &mdash; Flours &mdash; Cooking & Baking &mdash; NutsOnline

                    Nutty Guys - almond flour, no skins
                    Almond Flour - Blanched NO skins

                    Nutty Guys - almond flour, with skins
                    Almond Flour - Natural With skins

                      Cauliflower Pizza Crust: Worth its Wow in Gold - National Low Carb |

                      If you get a processor, you can add other veggies to the mix pretty easily. Cauliflower you can manage with a grater and some patience.

                      But seriously, if you get ahold of almond/coconut flour, don't waste it on pizza crust. Save it for things like pancakes where the flavor will actually enhance what you're eating.
