Since we’ve gone Paleo, we haven’t eaten our beloved pizza. (I used to live for pizza as my family could tell you.) Over the past few weeks, I have reviewed recipes online for tips on how to make a good Paleo pizza. Often times, I see less than flattering comments regarding the end product. This helped to steer me away from almond flour based recipes and more towards coconut flour.
Tonight, I tried a modified recipe from Coconut Recipes. We are very pleased with the results.
- 3 free range eggs
- 2 garlic cloves, minced
- 1 cup of whole milk
- 1/2 cup of coconut flour
- 1/2 teaspoon of baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon of sea salt
- 1 teaspoon of fresh oregano
Preheat the oven to 375F. In a mixing bowl, add 3 eggs and beat with a hand mixer. Add the remaining ingredients. Mix until the contents appear dough like.
To cook the crust, we used a cast iron skillet. Grease the skillet and then add the dough. I used a spatula to evenly spread this onto the bottom. Place in the oven and let bake for 20 minutes.
Next, remove from oven and add toppings. We made ours a Hawaiian pizza since I wondered how the coconut flour taste would work with the toppings. I baked this in the oven for an additional 20 minutes. We are at 3000 ft. so cook times may vary due to your elevation. The main thing is to bake until the toppings are golden.
It tasted like pizza. The coconut flavor of the flour is very subtle. There is no reason that this won’t work well for other types of pizzas. The crust can be a bit loose so eat with a fork. In the near future, we’ll try a variation where we add cheese to the dough. We’ll post that next version on this site.
Give this a try. Experiment. Let us know the results!
