Paleo pizza recipe grain-free

Paleo Pizza

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?

Paleo Pizza
Recipe type: Dinner
Cuisine: American
Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
For the base:
  • 300g Almond meal
  • 2 eggs
  • 3 tablespoons of coconut oil
  • 1 teaspoon of garlic powder, onion powder, thyme, oregano, basil & salt
For the sauce:
  • Tin organic diced tomatoes
  • Tin tomato paste
  • 1 crushed garlic clove
  • 1 teaspoon oregano
For the topping:
  • Onion
  • Capsicum
  • Mushrooms
  • Cherry Tomatoes
  • Beef
  • Kangaroo Steak
  • Coconut Oil
  1. I preheated the over to 180 degrees.
  2. I put the crust ingredients in a bowl and mixed them together with a wooden spoon until a ball emerged.
  3. 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.
  4. I put the base in the oven for 15 minutes until it started to turn crispy.
  5. I put the sauce ingredients in a pan and simmered for about 15 minutes. I then used my blender to achieve a "sauce" consistency
  6. I sliced, then browned the meat in a pan of coconut oil before setting it aside.
  7. I then fried the vegetables in coconut oil for a few minutes.
  8. Once everything was ready I spread the sauce on the crust and added to meat and vegetables.
  9. 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?

    I made this tonight substituting a couple toppings for things I already had on hand. AMA-ZING! My non-paleo boyfriend even loved it! I love the almond meal crust, I’ll probably just start making that as an entree for dips and stuff by itself! My only regret is not making more for my lunch tomorrow 😀 thank you!!!

    This was a pizza base I made which we really liked – new to paleo so hopefully the ingredients are acceptable
    2 cups mozzarella cheese, shredded
    2 large organic eggs
    2 tablespoons flaxseed meal
    2 tablespoons coconut flour
    1/2 teaspoon baking powder
    Mix everything together. Line a baking tray with baking paper & press mixture on to tray – I made mine as thin as I could make it but you could make it as thick or thin as you like. Bake about 15 mins (or until golden brown) remove from oven. Have another tray ready with a sheet of baking paper. Place the second tray on top of cooked pizza base & turn so the uncooked side is now face up. Return to oven & bake the second side till golden. Once cooked, place topping of your choice & return to oven & cook. I actually put mine in a pizza oven to cook with topping. Hopefully that is not too confusing.
