  • Tri-Herbed Pizza Crust

    Okay, this is our favorite crust yet. I've been playing with our crust recipe for months. Can't wait to share this one with you! Recipe and more photos here





    Disclaimer: since it is pizza crust it does contain "paleo flour", so if that freaks you out, this isn't the recipe for you.

    You can't post "Pizza" on a Paleo/Primal website. That's blasphemy! I'm Tellin;-)

        Looks gorgeous.

        I can understand why some individuals who shall remain nameless <*cough, Choco, cough*> have a vendetta against paleo flours because they can be taken to an extreme and become a crutch, yada, yada. But in this recipe, if the pizza is split for four hungry people, each one gets under a half cup which is a mix of coconut, almonds and flax. But I'm sure that is going to permanently impair your 03/06 ratio for life.

                  I have an issue with baking nut meals and flax because you're taking huge quantities of omega 6 polyunsaturated fat, grinding them to give them exponential surface area, then cooking them at hundreds of degrees. Whether or not you know it, that is the industrial recipe for making varnish. You are actually making paint thinner in your oven and eating it. Varnish IS heated flaxseed (linseed) oil.

                  The fact that it's a crutch isn't what bothers me. The fact that it's worse for you than wheat is what bothers me. You're eating something insanely poisonous that tastes terrible. If you're going to eat something you know is bad, just make a homemade sourdough pizza crust with normal wheat flour. It'll taste 10 times better and will actually be healthier than this catastrophe.

                  I'm all for the occasional meal off the Primal Blueprint. It's good for sanity. What bugs me is when people try to "paleo-ize" unhealthy food. The end result is still unhealthy, but it tastes bad. If you're going to be unhealthy, at least make it taste GOOD. In this case, the result is even worse for you than what you're trying to avoid. Especially when you can make a far better tasting crust with potato starch/tapioca flour/white rice flour. That's actually benign. This is a precursor to cancer.

                    My husband and son are Celiac and can not eat wheat. I am gluten intolerant and get very sick if I do. Happened to me a week or so ago at my first non paleo meal -and I've been doing this a while. Gluten is poison - especially to some people. So a pizza splurge with paleo flours don't make us sick, but wheat sure does! There are many others in the same boat.

                      I think Choco's point is the potential long-term dangers rather than any immediate sickness like from gluten.

                      My main issues with "paleo flours" is that I like to use fresh ingredients whenever possible - and unless you're grinding them yourself (does anyone actually do that?) they could have been standing around for god-knows-how-long. Unless you can somehow verify the production/storage process, dates & times, etc, I think they have to be classed as "industrially processed" foods and for that reason - I'm out!! (Not that I've got any kind of problem with those who choose to eat them, of course. I just don't see how "paleo flours" are even remotely paleo.)

                        I understand what you are saying.

                        Mark actually blogs positively about coconut flour (ground coconut) and almond meal (ground almonds) as well gives recipes here and here.

                        I really didn't think occasional use was controversial in the primal world. I feel about cheeses and milk the way you do about ground coconut and almond. Arguments on both sides for and against. Both have points I suppose.

                        I like to use fresh ingredients where possible too. There is nothing like fresh fruit, veggies and fresh organic meat! Matter of fact, I'm tweaking a recipe with all of the forementioned and hope to post it this week if tweaked to perfection

                          That's a really good point actually. It's definitely better to source all these things as locally as possible so you know how they're produced.

                          Look forward to it!!

                            Rice flour, tapioca starch and potato starch blended together make a very good substitute for wheat flour. If you add one part sorghum flour into the mix, it'll even taste a little like whole wheat flour. Any of these four options are far healthier than baking some kind of rancid nut meal, the calories will be much lower and it'll come out much closer to a normal pizza. Any pizza crust you try and make is going to be empty calories, but at least this way you're not eating varnish.

                              I'm definitely gonna try this one soon. I tried the last one you posted and it turned out awesome. It tasted exactly like a regular pizza. That was my first pizza since going primal 9 months ago.
