Paleo Pizza



Makes Two 6" Pizzas  

1/4 Cup Blanched Almond Flour
1/4 Cup Ground Flaxseed (Flax Meal)
1 Large Egg
1 T. Water
1 T. Arrowroot Powder
1/2 tsp. Baking Soda
1/2 tsp. Sea Salt
  1. Preheat oven to 425F.
  2. Place a pizza stone in the preheating oven (to heat stone).
  3. Whisk the egg and water, until frothy. Add vinegar and whisk.
  4. To the egg mixture, add almond flour, flaxseed, arrowroot powder, baking soda, and salt. Mix until combined. Mixture will be similar in consistency to pancake batter.
  5. Scoop half of the mixture onto hot pizza stone and spread to desired thinness (I made two 6" pizzas).
  6. Cook the dough 3 minutes.
  7. Remove from oven and add sauce/toppings.
  8. Return pizza and stone to oven. Cook for an additional 10-15 minutes, or longer if making a larger pizza. 
  9. Remove from oven. Cut and serve. 

For my topping, I used the following mixture:
3oz. Ground Buffalo (yes, this is ALWAYS in our fridge!)
Handful of Fresh Spinach
1 T. Tomato Paste
3 Canned Plum Tomatoes, squished
Dried Oregano
  1. In a hot pan, brown the buffalo.
  2. Add tomato paste and stir to coat.
  3. Add spinach. Wilt.
  4. Add tomatoes and oregano.

I played around with this recipe and think that this is the best version. I tried to make it a little healthier by using the ground flaxseed, which gives it more of a whole-grain flavor that I like. Let me know what you think and enjoy!
