Pizza, Paleo and Grain Free

This is a family favorite with our kids. Who said that Pizza has to be unhealthy? This recipe qualifies as Paleo, but may be a little high in carbs when on a strict Banting diet. This is due to the Arrowroot flour(Tapioca starch)

Also be aware that this recipe makes two oven tray size pizzas. This is because we are a family of six, and leftover pizza for breakfast or school lunches is a winner with the kids. Halve the recipe if less is required.

If you are strictly Paleo then hold the cheese. We use cheese, but I have made a really tasty Foccacia with garlic.

Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C
  2. Add the Coconut oil or butter (melted)
  3. Add all ingredients and mix well. ( I use a Thermomix) About 2min.
  4. Pour batter out on 2 oven trays covered with baking paper. If you make them thin enough you may even make more pizza base.
  5. Bake in the oven for 18 to 20min until just starting to brown.
  6. Remove from oven, add topping and bake for another 18 to 20min
  7. Remove from oven, cut and serve. Ideas for topping described below.
Recipe Notes

We eat cheese, so here is what I do.

I spread out a layer of Tomato paste/ Passata over the pizza crust.

Sprinkle liberally with dried Oregano

Add grated cheese and other toppings like bacon, mushrooms, pineapple, olives etc and bake.

I have also made a really tasty Foccacia by adding coarse salt, butter and crushed garlic.

So what I am saying is top the pizza base with whatever fits with your low carb diet.

Because of the arrowroot this pizza will be higher in carbs and those following a strict Banting diet may want to skip this or make an extra thin base.

I must just add that this is an amazing recipe and our kids love this. Pizza seems to be one of those dishes they really miss.

Leftover pizza is also a school lunch favorite.
