Ok, so the idea of pizza is not inherently very paleo. But some dinner ideas die hard. I gave up on trying to make good replacement bread pretty early on. But pizza...I'm still trying to make it work.
Someone recently asked me to post the recipe for my "paleo" pizza crust, made with cassava flour. (I have to avoid nut flour recipes because I still have a nut allergy.) It's been evolving every time we make it, but the last few were pretty good.
Please post any of your own "paleo" pizza recipes, even if you're cheating a little bit. Sometimes I even put cheese on mine. The horror, the horror.
1.5 cups cassava flour
1.5 cups sweet potato flour
1/8th cup grass-fed bacon grease -or- shortening, or whatever you substitute
1 tsp virgin coconut oil
1.5 tsp garlic powder
1.5 tsp onion powder
2 tsp oregano
1 tsp basil
1/2 cup minced jalapeno peppers
1/2 cup grass-fed bacon bits (optional)
add salt to taste, I don't use any but I might without grassfed bacon
Mix wet ingredients, then blend in dry ingredients and spices.
Spread crust fairly thin on a large pizza pan, covered with foil.
Bake at 350 for 5 minutes. Brush on more bacon grease. Bake at 350 for 7-10 minutes. (Not 100% baked but solid.) Flip crust over onto pan, peel off foil. Add your paleo sauce and toppings. Lots of meat! Bake until everything is cooked...another 20-30 minutes should do it.
This is a lot of carbs so I generally reserve it for PWO. I also make that crust as thin as possible. But there you go. I'm interested to see anyone else's attempts.
