Throwback Day 3

Being pregnant makes me crave so many things that are bad for me. I lied- being pregnant has something to do with it but I ALWAYS crave things that are bad for me when I give in and have too much sugar or eat unhealthy. Last night for dinner I had a huge slice of delicious pizza but now I am paying for it today- I have felt groggy, my stomach is killin me and I just feel gross. SO I decided to post an old Paleo Pizza recipe from a couple years back. This will serve to remind me when I am craving that pizza there is a better option out there that tastes just as delicious but does require effort.



PALEO PIZZA :) 

For this recipe you will need: 
Almond flour 
eggs 
baking soda 
baking powder 
Arrowroot flour 
basil 
pizza sauce
and toppings of your choice; I used: 
pepperoni 
pancetta 
onion 
mushrooms 
garlic
olives 

The "dough" is pretty tough to make and it took me a couple times to get it but this is what ended up working the best:
1 1/2 cups almond flour
1/2 tsp baking powder and baking soda
1/4 cup arrowroot flour
water

I added all the ingredients together in a bowl and mixed. The desired consistency is a little bit runny-I had to keep adding water until it felt 'right'. 
 











I used this much per TWO individual pizzas- and I ended up making 4 pizzas. The only reason I did it this way was because I wasn't sure what the right measurements would be, so after I found out the above one worked, I just made that again. I would suggest doubling that recipe if you want to make 4 individual pizzas at once.

***Optional: I also added some garlic powder to the dough for extra taste.

I then got a pan and coated it with coconut oil (about 1/2-1 tablespoon). I poured half the mixture into the pan. I swirled the pan in circles in order to make the dough form a circle. I took the pan off the medium heat while adding the dough and added it back once I had a circle I liked. After making one circle I set it aside on a baking pan.

After making the doughs I placed them aside on a baking pan. I sauteed the pancetta with about 4 cloves of garlic (chopped up) and let it cook until the pancetta was crispy. I then added sauce to all 4 pizzas and added the pancetta, then the onions, the chicken, then basil, then pepperoni, then mushrooms and olives for Matt's pizzas (I don't like mushrooms and olives).  I used Applegate Pepperoni- it was the closet I could find to Paleo.


 To finish up I threw the pizzas in the oven at about 350 degrees for 10-15 minutes- then served and enjoyed!!
