Pizza Day

As a kid, I remember the question “What is your most favorite food?” I also remember my response; PIZZA! Well, the pizza options usually contain gluten and sugar, even in the sauce. These days it’s not easy to find healthy alternatives. Kara Lee and I took a quick trip to Whole Foods Market where we found all of the ingredients for this delicious gluten free Paleo Pizza.

Bring on the gains because with this option you can totally remove “cheat meal” from your vocabulary. I won’t lie I would rather have a bourbon than grain-filled food that will ultimately lead to bubble guts later. My friends, it’s now possible to have a cheat meal but not actually cheat.

Cauliflower Crust Pizza

Preheat oven 450 degrees.

Crust:

Combine in food processor:

  • Half head of raw cauliflower
  • ½ cup almond meal/flour
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tablespoon melted coconut oil
  • 1 green onion
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • Few sprigs of parsley
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Form into ball and drain excess liquid with cheesecloth.

Pat flat onto pizza stone or greased cookie sheet.

Pre-cook crust in oven for 8 minutes, reduce heat to 350.

Sauce:

Combine in food processor:

  • 1 large tomato
  • 1 can organic roasted tomatoes
  • 1 tablespoon coconut palm sugar

Now, the fun part. Sauce the crust, sprinkle the grass fed cheese, and add all your favorite toppings. We used rotisserie chicken, Portuguese sausage, bacon, uncured pepperoni, and black olives.

Bake for 8 minutes. Then broil on high for 2 minutes.
