  • Primal Pizza

    No it's not deep dish take out, but it's pizza none the less. Primal pizza. My husband is a former Friday night pizza addict. I say former, because ever since I started making this, he has stopped buying take-out pizza. Now, I can live without pizza, easy come, easy go, so if you are a pizza lover don't take my word for it, take my husband's, he said, "hon, this is the best one yet"!

    Recipe courtesy of Elana Amsterdam's book The Gluten Free Almond Flour Cookbook
    The original recipe calls for blanched almond flour, I use my own homemade almond flour which is not blanched. It also calls for grapeseed oil, which I substitute with olive oil.

    Makes One 10-Inch Crust
    • 1 1/2 c. Almond Flour
    • 1/4 tsp. Celtic Sea Salt
    • 1/4 tsp. Rumford Aluminum-Free Baking Powder (it's gluten free)
    • 1 Tbsp. Olive Oil
    • 1 Large Pastured Egg

    Preheat oven to 350. Set aside large baking sheet. Cut 2 pieces of parchment paper the size of baking sheet. Combine dry ingredients first then add egg and olive oil. Mix with a fork until it comes together into a ball. Place dough between parchment paper and with a rolling pin, roll to about 1/8 inch thick. Remove top piece of parchment and set crust along with the bottom piece of parchment onto baking sheet. Bake 15 minutes. Crust should be lightly browned. Remove from oven, add toppings and return to oven to warm.

    Tonight's toppings:
    • Bacon
    • Buffalo sausage
    • Homemade Pizza Sauce
    • Crumbled Goat Cheese
    • Sundried Tomatoes

    In the blender I threw one can of diced tomatoes seasoned with basil & garlic, a couple spoonfuls of tomato paste, some olive oil and a little sriracha sauce to add a little kick. Voila sauce. Good enough. I pre-cut the bacon and browned it in a pan and then cut and browned up the sausage as well. I kept the meat warm until the crust was done, added the topping and then back in the oven for about 5 minutes to "melt" the goat cheese.

    Enjoyed with a glass of red wine!

      Not only good for pizza, a crust like that can be used for a quiche too...or individual egg cupcakes...yummy

        Even quicker primal 'pizza fix': 2 eggs whisked, large pan. cook eggs omlette style but like a pancake; as thin as possible; no stirring. turn over so crispy both sides. cover with your pizza toppings and herbs. stick under very hot grill for a minute or two.

        result; a pizza 'fix' in 5 minutes.
