Flipping heck this paleo pizza recipe is so good. We’ve made cauliflower base pizza before and we have a recipe using sweet potato from our book (they’re both awesome)… but we just wanted a paleo pizza recipe that actually stayed together when you pick it up. Like a REAL pizza.
And wah-lah! This one will do the trick! Plus, you can make the base a little thicker and use it as a foccacia-ry type bread to dip in dips, which is definitely fun. Dipping anything in yum dips is fun. We did that, you can check it out HERE!
We made this pizza using cassava four but you could also use tapioca or arrowroot flour, you may need to add some extra herbs or spices to the mix for extra taste. Then we topped it with left over fridge stuff. Think tandoori chicken (from the best Indian place down the road, all gluten free and amazing), zucchini, mushrooms and organic parmesan cheese (you can leave off the cheese for 100% paleo or why not try make a batch of our paleo cheese!).
The only question you need to ask and answer is: when is pizza night? When you have your answer, whack this baby on your to-make list! We all have those lists, right? Well… we do!
