Paleo Pizza & Holiday Party


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.

Ingredients

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
4 eggs
3 tbsp EVOO
½ cup almond milk
Salsa or pizza sauce
Artichokes
Chicken
Mushrooms
Avocado*

Process

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…
IMG_3925 IMG_3926 IMG_3927 IMG_3928I 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!IMG_3952 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. IMG_3938 IMG_3939 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.IMG_3953IMG_3954IMG_3955

  1. I love cheeseless pizza and that looks fantastic! I have never baked with coconut flour before…so interesting! Your party looks like a BLAST and the food mouth watering. I just made those caramel pecan pretzels today, but I didn’t have tree pretzels. How fun!

  2. Oh my gosh is that picture you and the boy!? You two are SO cute!! What a fun time, and that pizza looks GOOD! SO DO THOSE TJS cakes!

    • It is it is, his mug doesn’t make on here a lot but it’s a great mug in my opinion 🙂 I had one of the cakes, it was peppermint and chocolate, holy yum!! I’m not a huge frosting person so I took most of it off but boy was it delicious!

  3. It looks like such a fun time. That pizza looks amazing and I know a lot of paleo bloggers and I honestly don’t even know what is considered…what is not…but I do that pizza looks good LOL.

  4. Just pinned this so I remember to make the crust. 🙂

  5. Hi! I just found your blog because I was trying to find someone who had figured out how to replicate Wildtree Seafood Seasoning (if you haven’t already heard, Wildtree is discontinuing their Seafood Seasoning). I have a son who is a picky eater and I need to try to replicate it. Have you started trying?… Thanks! 🙂
