I really love pizza.
Like never-let-you-go love LOVE pizza.
But it’s basically all the bad carbs and then also cheese and I mean what’s pizza without booze?
Thankfully, I have a very lovely best friend who is with-it when it comes to cooking and making tasty “healthy” (there’s still cheese and pepperoni, but still) versions of my one true love: pizza.
Here’s the recipe for the crust we made (got it from PaleOMG):
3 large eggs
1 cup full fat coconut mile
½ cup olive oil
3 cups tapioca flour
¼ cup coconut flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 teaspoon fine sea salt
The dough was kind of less dough-y than you’d think and you have to lay it out on a pan and spread it out (and we actually had a minor mess-up and had to make a double batch). Cook at 350 for 10-15 minutes. Our dough was very thick because of our double batch so it took almost double that to get it cooked through. I recommend making a really thin layer.
Here’s a pic of the dough spread out (left) and then after it cooked (right).
Then we just added our toppings and cooked it for another 30 minutes.
The verdict: not quite love, but a pretty darn good alternative and it totally kept me within my macros and under my calorie goal (I’m tracking everything I eat on Myfitnesspal @caitdingle if you’re truly interested!)
If I’m being real honest, though… I had a little bit more wine with the pizza than I should have and completely blew my day. Whoops.
Here’s the final pizza:
That cheese though ❤
