My sister and her fiance are in the kitchen, once again, cooking up some grain free deliciousness! My parents gave Micah’s gluten free pizza two thumbs way up when he recently cooked it for them! If you have been missing your pizza, this Paleo couple claims that this pie is the real deal!
For the Crust:
1 cup Organic Tapioca Starch
1/3 cup Parmesan cheese
4 Tbsp melted palm oil
1 Tbsp water
1 organic pastured egg
For the Toppings:
1-2 cups of Organic Pizza Sauce to your taste
1-2 cups raw or grass fed cheese (optional)
1 cup thinly sliced mushrooms
1 cup thinly sliced bell peppers
1/2 cup sliced olives
1/4 cup fresh chopped basil or parsley
Cooked grass fed beef crumbles or other meat of your choice
(and whatever other toppings you desire, be creative!)
Things you will need: mixing bowl, Round Pizza Stone, Parchment Paper, rolling pin. (a pizza peel or round pizza pan is also useful)
-Preheat oven to 390 degrees with pizza stone in oven.
-Combine all crust ingredients into mixing bowl and stir/knead with spoon until consistency is doughy and can be kneaded by hand (adjust ingredients if necessary)
-Cut two pieces of parchment paper a length equal to its width
-Place one piece on the counter, apply some oil to the paper, and place the dough in the center.
-Push the dough out as flat and apply some more oil to surface of dough.
-Place 2nd piece of parchment paper on top of dough and roll out with pin until the crust touches the edge of the paper on all four sides (or close to it)
-Remove top parchment paper (save it for next time)
-Use finger to push a crust up around the dough and round it out a bit
-Apply sauce and toppings
-If you have a pizza pan or a peel slide pizza (parchment paper and all) onto the pan the transfer onto stone.
-Cook for about 20 minutes.
-When removing pizza simply hold a round pan in front of stone and slide the pizza on to pan. If you don’t have a pan very carefully pick the pizza up using the parchment paper and place on the counter.
-Allow it to cool, cut and serve!
Watch the Video Tutorial:
If it sounds a bit confusing let my sister’s fiance Micah, (aka the Paleo pizza expert) expound on the subject in the following video! He claims this is the best recipe for Primal pizza and he has been working on perfecting it for the past two years.
