Paleo pizza!!!Cavemen ate pizza?Today’s caveman or cavewoman sure does!!!
What would life be without pizza?It is as important as the invention of the wheel and fire.Cavemen probably invented fire just to cook pizza!!!I can imagine them foraging for the peppers, hunting for the meat, grunt grunt grunt, squishing tomatoes for the sauce and finishing it off with some more grunting and flexing of their muscles.
Last week, I informed you that my blog has YouTube videos that you can watch.If you have a YouTube channel that would fit the theme of this blog please let me know by e-mailing me at [email protected].The gadget is on the right hand side and four videos are displayed.The videos rotate and to watch them you click on the video.
I come online to check for comments and stuff and find myself entranced by the YouTube videos.It is so addicting.I start watching one and I can’t stop.This led me to watch a couple of videos on pizza.I particularly liked two.One was based on an almond flour crust and the other one was a coconut flour crust with a Paleo twist to it.I already have my own almond flour pizza dough recipe that was very similar to the first video.I have never tried a crust made from coconut flour.
Watching pizza recipes made me VERY hungry!I set forth to make the Paleo Pizza.I foraged through my fridge and cupboards and made sure I had all the ingredients.You can picture a scene with me wearing a leopard cavewoman dress (I think it would have been very fashionable for that time period) and grunting.
The video is great.It shows you step by step how to make it.I did use regular cheese whereas the host used cheese made from raw milk (paleo friendly).I also decreased the eggs from 4 to 3.I have found in the past that recipes calling for a lot of eggs can taste very eggy, especially when burnt.
Paleo Pizza Recipe:
Adapted from the Paleo Pizza Video
·4 eggs – I used 3 eggs
·1/2 cup of full fat coconut milk (make sure the ingredients say only coconut.Many include guar gum, and other junk.They can taste like the watered down version of the full fat coconut milk.)*The use of coconut milk is what makes this pizza caveman style since Paleo diets try to avoid or limit the dairy intake.If you want you can probably replace it with almond milk.
·1/3 cup coconut flour (sifted to get rid of clumps)
·1/3 cup ground flax meal
·The author says to add any spices or flavours you’d like to get a tasty crust. I just used salt & pepper.You can also cut the crust in strips and use as breadsticks. The author usually uses the following spices:
o1 tbsp oregano
o1 tbsp basil
odash of garlic powder
1.Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
2.Mix all the ingredients together to form dough.
3.Spread the dough onto a pizza pan with parchment paper.*Parchment paper is very important.
|The dough. It was very sticky just like real pizza dough.|
|Thin crust. This was the thickness I made it.|
4.The author says to cook for 20 minutes flipping halfway through but I cooked for 10 minutes and the dough was cooked.
5.Once the dough is cooked, take it out of the oven and put your pizza toppings on it.
6.You can either broil or bake.I baked the pizza for an additional 15 minutes until the cheese was bubbling.
7.Enjoy some caveman pizza!!!
I really enjoyed the pizza.I ate the leftovers for breakfast the following day.
