Taco Pizza

I know, I do not want emails or comments but we used corn. Yes, we realize it is considered a grain and is not part of the Paleo diet and in general should not be consumed...

Now that that is out in the open! We enjoyed a taco pizza with Almond Meal crust. I must say with was the perfect meal!!!

The Ingredients:

2 cups Almond Meal
2 eggs
1/4 tsp Baking Soda
3 TBSP Olive Oil
1 tsp Garlic Powder
Fresh Thyme (rosemary would be good)

1/2 - 3/4 lb Ground Venison
1 cup tomatoes, diced (can or fresh)
1/2 cup corn
2 cups lettuce
1 cup tomato sauce
1/2 zucchini, diced real small (size of corn)
1 avocado

The Directions:

Preheat your oven to 350. 

Using a spoon mix all crust ingredients together until it becomes very thick.  Using your hands, form the dough into a ball.  Lightly grease a pizza pan or a cookie sheet with olive oil.  Place the ball of dough in the center of your cookie sheet or pizza pan and using your hands, push and pat the dough down into the shape of a circle (or an oval in my case…).  You want to make the dough as thin as possible.  Your pizza will be about 12 inches across.  Bake JUST the crust in your pre-heated oven for 20 minutes.  While your crust is cooking, prepare your toppings.  I browned the venison, here! 
After the crust if done, remove from the oven and evenly spread the marinara sauce over the crust.  Add the venison and tomatoes, zucchini, corn evenly over the sauce and bake again for an additional 25-30 minutes.  Top the pizza with lettuce and avocado!

Get creative and use whatever toppings you might like – ours was great but I also suggest trying chicken, artichoke hearts, and even broccoli!!  If you are sausage eaters it could be good!
