I have been wanting to make a paleo pizza since...well, since I started eating paleo! I finally picked up all the ingredients to make this recipe so today was the day. (I found a huge bag of flaxseed meal at Big Lots for $4!! It's usually $9). I have seen a few different recipes and I'll be sure to give the others a try to as I am curious. But for now, this is the one I'm eating. I got this recipe from Ben Kreps. The only difference is he was a good boy and added lots of veggie to his pizza. I promise I will next time!! I just was so excited to make this I forgot to buy extra veggies.
This crust is supper easy to make into any shape you want. Wish I would have known on Valentines day! Heart shaped pizza???
|This is what my crust looked like before adding all the toppings.|
1/2 cup of coconut milk (or full fat milk)
1/3 cup coconut flour
1/3 cup flax meal
1/2 tsp baking powder
Add any spices or flavors you’d like to get a tasty crust. I personally add:
1 tbsp oregano
1 tbsp basil
garlic powder (Ben didn't give an amount so I added 1 tbsp)
Mix wet ingredients in a mixing bowl, or kitchen aide if you have one. In a separate bowl mix all dry ingredients. Ben said he sifted them, but I don't have a sifter-still turned out fine. Then pour dry ingredients in to mixing bowl with wet ones and mix until you have sort of a pancake batter consistency. Pour batter on to parchment paper in to your favorite pizza shape. Cook crust in oven on 350 for about 20 minutes, flipping at the 15 minute mark to make sure it cooks evenly. I think I ended up keeping it in an extra 5 minutes just because I felt like it. While it's cooking, prep other ingredients. Since I added mushrooms I sauteed them in a pan with olive oil. I also made my own pizza sauce. Take the crust out of the oven and add all toppings then place back in the oven on broil until it looks delicious! EAT!
I ended up making a second pizza and just brushed on some olive oil half way through and cooked it longer on 400 to make a crispier crust.
Ben made a fun little video for this pizza so I'm going to include it for your viewing pleasure. ;)
