Paleo Pizza

The problem most diets fail and people fail off the bandwagon is lack of comfort foods. 

I love PIZZA... I think I have stated this before. I love a good vegetable pizza or a simple cheese pizza. Unfortunately, no more cheese pizza. 

That is ALRIGHT WITH ME, my Paleo Pizza creation was WONDERFUL!!!! With unlimited choices and options!
Almond Meal Crust

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 lb venison, browned
1 zucchini, sliced thin
1 yellow squash, sliced thin
1 tomato, sliced thin
1 cup tomato sauce, I used homemade

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 all remaining toppings evenly over the sauce and bake again for an additional 25-30 minutes.  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!

Go wild with it and as always: Enjoy!
