Who doesn’t love pizza! Pizza actually offers such a great opportunity to load up on some health giving ingredients that the kids will eat (and enjoy). This recipe will show you how to create that pizza comfort food vibe, without any of the junk.grain free pizza (1280x828).jpg

When I was eating traditional pizza I could eat the craziest amount without filling up. Or if I did fill up I would somehow be hungry again 10 minutes later! I would also get bloat and lethargy, and just feel so dehydrated. I know now that my body can only handle a small amount of grains, and definitely never, ever gluten. We’re all built differently but if you feel heavy and tired after a pizza session I think you will love this recipe! And even if you don’t but just like a tasty meal then this is definitely for you too. It is really filling and you’ll need less to be really satisfied.

This recipe is grain free, gluten free, yeast free and can be made dairy free. It will make a large family size pizza that will serve 3 to 4 people.pizza trio (1280x833).jpg

INGREDIENTS

3 tblsp coconut flour
1/2 cup almond four (meal)
1/2 cup ground flaxseed
1 heaped teaspoon baking powder
1 tsp dried mixed herbs (optional)
1/2 tsp sea salt
3 eggs
1/4 cup milk of choice
3 tblsp olive oil

METHOD

Preheat oven to 180ºC.

In a large bowl mix all the dry ingredients together.

Add the eggs, milk of choice and olive oil.

Mix well. The mixture will appear sticky and too wet to begin with but let it rest for two minutes and the coconut flour will start to absorb the liquid and the consistency will become thicker.

It will start to clump together and with wet hands you will be able to pat the mixture into a ball.

Line a pizza tray with baking paper.

With wet hands place the mixture onto the lined tray and start to push it down to form a flat base the size of the tray. Keep your hands wet so the mixture doesn’t stick.

Don’t be scared that it will be too thin. Once it cooks it puffs up a bit so as long as you can’t see any holes in the base it will be fine. pizza push (1280x745).jpgYou are going to blind bake this base first. Place the base into your preheated oven and cook for approximately 15 – 20 minutes, it will be just golden.

Remove from the oven and put on your toppings of choice. On this pizza I used an organic tomato paste base, fresh basil, mushrooms, kalamata olives, capsicum and grated cheddar cheese. birds eye pizza (1215x1280).jpg

Place in the oven and bake for a further 15 minutes or until the cheese is golden on top. Remove and cut into slices – you will be able to pick this up as a slice just like a regular pizza!

Enjoy and serve with a side of movies, Friday night & family ♥
