Son of Grok’s Primal Pizza Recipe

Crust:

2 cups almond flour or almond meal
2 eggs
2 tsp extra virgin olive oil
1 tsp salt

 

Sauce:

1 can Tomato Paste
1-2 cups Water
1 tsp Dried Oregano
1 tsp Garlic

 

Toppings:

Choose the toppings that you like. But since this is Paleo, choose toppings made from foods that are approved in the Paleo Diet Food List

Instructions

 

Crust:

1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit

2. Mix all of the ingredients in a large mixing bowl until you have a ball of dough. To prevent your dough from becoming mushy, continue adding almond flour until you have the right consistency.

3. Grease your baking sheet so that the pizza will not stick to it.

4. Press and flatten the dough on the sheet so that it is 1/2 inch thick at the edges and 1/4 inch thick in the middle.

5.  Bake the crust in the oven for 15 minutes or until it is slightly golden brown in color.

 

Sauce:

1. Mix all the ingredients together in a saucepan. Continue adding water until you get the desired thickness. You can also add more spices.

2. Let the sauce simmer on the stove for 15 minutes.

 

Toppings:

Pre-cook the meats that you are going to put as toppings. Already shred vegetables, such as spinach. For cheese, you can make a half-half mix of Swiss and Mozzarella cheeses.

 

Assembly:

1. After you pop the crust out of your oven, make sure that you spread the sauce evenly on top.

2. Sprinkle your toppings evenly on top of the sauce.

3. Put your pizza back in the oven. Let it bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for another 15 minutes or until the cheese has evenly melted.

4. Once cooked, remove from the oven and cut into slices.
