20160717_175944

This pizza my husband and I came up with while I was on the Autoimmune Paleo Diet, it is a healthy version of a regular pizza and contains no grains, gluten, dairy, nuts or nightshades. You can add different toppings or add chicken to this recipe. Enjoy!

 

Ingredients

Pizza sauce:

  • 1 cup canned pumpkin purée
  • 2 tsp. Italian seasoning
  • 1/4 tsp. sea salt
  • 1-2 cloves minced garlic

Pizza toppings:

  • 1 small handful of spinach
  • 2 white mushrooms, sliced
  • 1/4 cup red onion, chopped
  • 2 slices of cooked bacon {nitrate and MSG free}, chopped
  • 1-2 slices deli ham {nitrate and MSG free}, sliced into squares

Pizza crust:

  • 1 1/2 cups tapioca flour or arrowroot flour
  • 1/2 cup coconut milk
  • 2 tbsp. coconut oil
  • 1/2 tsp. sea salt
  • 3 tbsp. nutritional yeast
  • 2 tbsp. onion, finely chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • 2 tsp. Italian seasoning

 

Instructions

Pizza sauce:

  1. To one cup of canned pumpkin purée, add sea salt, Italian seasoning, and minced garlic until well mixed.
  2. Set aside your pizza sauce until you are ready to assemble your pizza.

Pizza toppings:

  1. Make sure all your toppings are ready before you start your crust.
  2. Slice or chop your raw ingredients (mushrooms, onions), and wash and dry your spinach and set aside.
  3. Pre-cook & chop your bacon and slice ham.

Pizza crust:

  1. Preheat oven to 450F
  2. Place your cast iron skillet or pizza stone in the oven and heat it while you prepare your dough.
  3. Set aside tapioca starch in a mixing bowl.
  4. In a small pot, add coconut milk, coconut oil and sea salt; heat on medium until steaming. Add this to the tapioca starch and mix together.
  5. Add the nutritional yeast, onion, chopped garlic and Italian seasoning and knead together until seasonings are well-mixed and a dough forms.
  6. Spread your dough carefully, to about 1/4″ thickness. Your pizza is now ready for toppings.

Assemble your pizza:

  1. Dollop your pizza sauce on the prepared crust and spread evenly with the back of a spoon.
  2. Top your pizza with raw spinach, raw mushrooms, and roasted chicken. Sprinkle chopped red onion and cooked chopped bacon. Feel free to use your favorite toppings instead!
  3. Bake at 450F for 15-20 minutes or until the crust is firm.
