PIZZA PIZZA

I have resisted trying a pizza crust recipe thus far. All the ones I have looked at seemed too difficult and laborious. If you check out the recipes on my blog, you know I love easy-fast recipes. Not only does it have to be easy, it HAS to taste SOOOOOOO close to the original, only the most discriminating tasters can tell it is grain/gluten free.
This recipe is NOT dairy free but I chose to use buffalo and goat cheese instead of cow cheese.

I saw this recipe on Facebook and quickly shared it on my FB page. My nephew immediately tried it and commented, "AMAZING". It took me 2 or 3 weeks before I tried the recipe. I have since made it 4 times. It's THAT easy! The other great thing about this recipe is that each time I made it, the dough has been a different texture and was still amazing. The textures ranged from wet, where I spread it out with a wooden spoon to a stiff dough, where I actually spread it over the parchment covered cookie sheet with my wet fingers. 
I have used buffalo mozzarella, regular mozzarella, chevre goat cheese and goat cheese crumbles.
This is my adaptation of the pizza crust recipe that I found here.

Paleo Pizza 

Ingredients
  • 1 1/2 cups grated buffalo mozzarella
  • 2 Tbls Chevre goat cheese
  • 3/4 cup almond flour
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 tsp garlic salt
  • 21 Seasoning Salute from Trader Joe's
  • Muir Glen organic pizza sauce
  • Toppings for pizza, browned sausage, onions, peppers, grated buffalo mozzarella and Pecorino Romano
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees
  2. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper
  3. Put cheeses in a microwave safe bowl and place in microwave for one minute and then another 30 seconds or until melty.
  4. When the cheese is melted, stir in flour and egg.
  5. Use wet hands to spread the dough out on your cookie sheet.
  6. Place in oven and bake for 8 minutes.
  7. Remove and use a fork to poke any bubbles that might form in the crust.
  8. Return to oven and bake another 12 to 14 minutes until golden brown.
  9. Remove crust from oven and top with pizza sauce and your favorite pizza toppings.
  10. Return to oven and bake until the cheese is all bubbly and browned.
I made my crust and covered it until I was ready to make my pizza a day later.
If you love and miss eating pizza, this recipe is for you. Even easier than boxed chef boyardee pizza mix.

You don't have to spend all day in the kitchen to create a delicious meal. Make pizza for dinner tonight! 
ENJOY!!

We just finished dinner. This is what I made. My 6 year old said, "This is the food they would cook in heaven." I'll leave it at that.
