The one food item that I missed the most after going Paleo had to be PIZZA. I used to eat a lot of pizza in my day and that was the only food I truly missed since I started following this Paleo lifestyle. After a few months of being Paleo and looking for different ways to make my favorite dishes I decided to go on a mission to create the best damn Paleo/Primal pizza out there. So I took to the internet and found some Paleo pizza recipes and we started to give them a try. The first couple we tried were okay, some were even complete disasters, but we were determined to find the best damn Paleo pizza recipe! I’ve tried making it with coconut flour, almond flour, cauliflower, etc.; they just didn’t have that real New York/New Jersey pizza feel. Then I stumbled upon the right recipe, with the right ingredients…and all it needed was a little tweaking. So here it is, the best damn Paleo pizza recipe…. it’s so good that you’ll never order another crappy gluten free pizza from your local pizzeria ever again!!
1 Cup of Water 1/2 Cup Grass Fed butter or Extra Virgin Coconut Oil 1 tsp Salt 1 tsp Granulated Garlic 1 1/2 Cup of Tapioca Flour 2 Eggs 1/2 Cup of Coconut Flour 2 Cups of Shredded Cheese (if Primal) or Paleo Cheese (Recipe Coming Soon!) Tomato Sauce Then toppings of your choice – I like mushrooms and olives, sometimes we choose a meat…pretty much whatever you like on your pizza is fair game, as long as it’s Paleo!
1. Preheat the Oven to 400 degrees. 2. In a small sauce pan add your cup of water, salt and 1/2 of Coconut oil or 1/2 of Butter. Bring it to a boil. 3. While that is getting ready to boil add your tapioca flour and granulated garlic into a mixing bowl. 4. When that comes to a boil, add it to the mixing bowl with the tapioca flour and garlic powder, and mix well. It should become pretty tough and doughy. If it’s too watery, then add a little more tapioca flour until it becomes thicker. Then let it cool for at least 5 minutes. 5. Next add the eggs and coconut flour. Knead the dough until it comes together nicely. You are probably going to have to get your hands pretty dirty here. 6. Place the dough onto the parchment paper lined baking sheet and spread it out to the shape of a circle or rectangle, or whatever shape you like. 7. Now place it in the oven for 25 minutes or until the bottom is slightly golden brown. Usually takes between 25 to 30 minutes. Make sure you keep checking it! 8. After about 25 to 30 minutes in the oven, take out your pizza. Now for the fun part, decorating! Spread sauce on the pizza, and then add the cheese of your choice and whatever toppings you are decorating your Paleo/Primal Pizza with! 9. Put it back in the oven for another 8 to 10 minutes or until the cheese is melted to your liking. 10. ENJOY!
