**READ ME: Keep in mind that while all of these recipes are Paleo. If you are currently doing the whole30, you will need to leave out all sweeteners!
I know, I know...but you will be able to enjoy them soon enough. Hang in there! I promise it's all worth it.**

{ paleo pizza }

We absolutely LOVE pizza, and are so happy that we could incorporate it into our new lifestyle. I told you that you don't have to sacrifice your favorite foods. So, here we share it with you!
For the crust:
  • 3/4 cup whole raw cashews (or 1 cup cashew flour)
  • 3 tablespoons almond flour
  • 1/4 cup coconut flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 2 organic eggs
  • 2 tablespoon unsweetened almond milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon organic apple cider vinegar
  • 2 1/2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon cold water
  • 1 tablespoon fresh parsley
  • 2 tablespoons fresh basil
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a food processor, pulse the cashews until a fine flour has formed. Add in the almond flour, coconut flour, baking soda, salt, and garlic granules, then process the mixture for 1 minute. Add the eggs, almond milk, apple cider vinegar, olive oil, and water and process for another minute.

2. Scrape down the sides of the bowl and pulse a few more times until you have a very smooth dough. Add the parsley and basil, and pulse two more times to roughly chop and incorporate the herbs.
Let the dough rest for 2 minutes to let the coconut flour absorb some of the liquid.

3. Sprinkle a piece of parchment paper with a little almond flour, then turn the dough out onto the counter. Sprinkle a little more flour on the top of the ball of dough, then place another piece of parchment on top. Use your hands to flatten the ball into a disc, then lightly roll out the dough into a circle that is 1/4 inch thick.

4. Remove the top piece of parchment and carefully slide the other piece with the crust onto a pizza pan. Bake the crust for 12 minutes, or until it has puffed up and is golden brown around the edges.

5. Top with homemade marinara sauce, and any of your favorite Paleo **toppings. Put back in the oven for another 10-15 minutes. **If you aren't 100% Paleo, you have the option of using cheese.

ENJOY! Don't forget to let us know how you liked it!

  1. Sub. Half cauliflower "rice" In the crust for healthier version!

    1. Thanks for the input, Rachel! We also love doing that as well. This recipe is versatile for people who don't love the cauliflower crust. As we have found that there are a few out there that can't stand it. :)


{ Thanks for showing us some love! }
