Paleo Pizza. Heck Yes.
Way back when my hubby and I used to have pizza Friday nights. Usually homemade, but never gluten free. When I realized how sick gluten and grains made me I thought I was done with pizza forever. Which really was a sad thought.
The paleo world is changing and there are products out there that make everything possible!!! I don't consider pizza a daily food, but it is now come back into my life and boy am I happy about it!!
I wanted to share with you a few of the amazing options (not sponsored) that I have been experimenting with to make pizza.
There are three kinds of crusts I like. Look you could totally make your own, their are tons of paleo recipes out there, but I just am usually not interested.
- Love my buns - this is a Canadian product, score! It is super delicious, and also nut free. It is softer than typical thin crust pizza, but good nonetheless. They include their pizza crust recipe on their website
- Julian Bakery - this stuff, I think is the closest to real pizza crust. In fact it might be better. But it is a more expensive option.
- Simple Mills - this is yummy too, but loaded with almond flour which is not great for everyone
My favourite pizza sauce is to actually make one of these BBQ sauces - they are out of this world good. I skip the molasses and typically add in equal parts ACV as the coconut aminos. The best part is you have extra bbq sauce for your fridge.
Then you pile on all the meat and veggies you like! My personal favs are:
- caramelized onions
- sweet pepers
But I also just go with what I have in the fridge. This pizza was a left over pizza. I had some pork sausages that I crumbled up and some steamed broccoli that I added too.
Lastly the cheese! There a few options that I like. If you want to be totally paleo I like this cashew cheese. I also like this vegan cheese. These are all products that can be found in Canada. I wish I had access to all the amazing American products I see out there. There is also a local water buffalo cheese producer just outside of where I live and sometimes I go for that, because I know it is good quality, and it is reallllly good. I sometimes do east dairy. It messes with my skin, but if I can find some good local stuff I might just go for it.
