I hope you are prepared for a long post. Not a TON of text, but definitely lots of pictures. I write a ton about food and fitness (hence the blog title) but not a ton about the rest of my life. So today’s post will have a little more “Megan” in it. Before I go totally rogue though lets get down to the good stuff. An AMAZINGGGG paleo pizza recipe AND the versatile use of the crust to be bread. One of the things I eat that is definitely not paleo is pizza sometimes. I’m not a closet pizza eater or anything but the boyfriend and I get it out of convenience probably 2x a month. I always feel like crap after so this pizza was a joy to make AND eat.
1½ cup coconut flour
1 cup almond flour
1 tsp baking powder
2 tsp seasoning – think garlic powder, or something else, in my world Wildtree Seafood Seasoning
3 tbsp EVOO
½ cup almond milk
Salsa or pizza sauce
Preheat oven to 350F. Mix together coconut flour, almond flour, baking powder, and seasoning. In a separate bowl combine eggs, EVOO, and almond milk. Combine the two and mix until incorporated. The dough will be wetter than your standard pizza dough, fear not, its fricken delicious. On a parchment lined pan push your dough into whatever shape you want. Bake at 350F for 15-20 minutes – this is just the dough, not the toppings! When the dough comes out add on whatever toppings you are using (I listed my ingredients above) and bake for another 10 minutes. Enjoy! *Note – Don’t cook avocados, add after the fact. Oh I also put hot sauce on this…
I made this again on Sunday and upped the seasoning to 3 tsp and cut it up like a pizza to use as bread this week with lunch! Now for a little food porn. I recently discovered a neighborhood Mediterranean Gem. Astor Mediterranean is AMAZING. I love this type of food and their menu is huge, plus it’s affordable! Saturday morning started out with puppy play time, going to see The Hobbit (pretty good, super long, my attention was running super low), and then to Astor’s. I got the Kafta Kabob and subbed out the rice for a beat salad. I love beat salad, a restaurant I used to work at made an awesome one so whenever I make it at home I follow their guesstimate of a recipe. Saturday evening the boy and I were invited to my friend Faith’s annual Christmas Bash. Boy can this girl throw a party!! She blogs erratically at BricolageWithFaith. Faith rented out the main area of her apartment building (which was gorgeoussss), she filled the tables with liquor, wine, mulled wine, eggnog, real food, snack food, and of course dessert. I was in heaven. I had been wanting chocolate all day and had been holding out for this party. She even had a huge ham!! My little group of work out buffs demolished a good portion of that as we attempted to not eat everything else in sight. She made absolutely everything you see, except for the cupcakes, which came courtesy of Trader Joe’s.
What an amazing day with amazing people!
