I had some grain loving friends coming round for dinner at short notice, so I wanted to make something that didn't look Paleo at first glance – and also used things I already had. Pizza seemed like a good choice, as it seems like such a non-Paleo food! Of course, my pizza used almond meal instead of flour and good quality grass fed meat.
This was the first time I've tried a Paleo pizza and I'll probably experiment with the crust a little next time, perhaps adding coconut flour. I'm wondering if I could even make it on sliced eggplant and do away with a traditional base altogether?
- 300g Almond meal
- 2 eggs
- 3 tablespoons of coconut oil
- 1 teaspoon of garlic powder, onion powder, thyme, oregano, basil & salt
- Tin organic diced tomatoes
- Tin tomato paste
- 1 crushed garlic clove
- 1 teaspoon oregano
- Cherry Tomatoes
- Kangaroo Steak
- Coconut Oil
- I preheated the over to 180 degrees.
- I put the crust ingredients in a bowl and mixed them together with a wooden spoon until a ball emerged.
- I then greased a baking tray with coconut oil and pressed out the dough trying to cover as much of the tray as possible, whilst keeping the dough relatively even.
- I put the base in the oven for 15 minutes until it started to turn crispy.
- I put the sauce ingredients in a pan and simmered for about 15 minutes. I then used my blender to achieve a "sauce" consistency
- I sliced, then browned the meat in a pan of coconut oil before setting it aside.
- I then fried the vegetables in coconut oil for a few minutes.
- Once everything was ready I spread the sauce on the crust and added to meat and vegetables.
- It was then returned to the oven for another 20 minutes, cut and served!

It was very well received – as demonstrated by no leftovers – and prompted lots of questions about paleo! It's nice to make things like this that show how broad paleo food can be. A nice occasional treat!
Have you tried a paleo pizza? I'd love to hear how you made yours?
