When the cat’s away the mice will play… or in this case make a gluten free pizza! Technically it’s my husband who was away last night, so it was just me and Lilly (my cat). With some extra space in the kitchen, I wanted to nail down a few recipes for the blog and one of my favorites (which there ended up being no leftovers, sorry hunny) was the homemade gluten free and dairy free pizza.
I decided to go with a sausage, peppers, and onions pizza. Below I outlined how to make your own pizza crust, a quick-and-easy sauce, and the toppings. Hope you enjoy it as much as I did!
Paleo Pizza Crust
- 3 large eggs
- 1 cup of coconut milk
- ½ cup of olive oil
- 3 cups tapicoca flour
- ¼ cup coconut flour
- ¼ cup almond flour
- 1 tbsp baking powder
- pinch of fine sea salt
- Preheat the oven to 350°F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper
- In a bowl whisk eggs, coconut milk and olive oil.
- In a bigger bowl mix all the dry ingredients together. Pour the liquid mixture into the dry mixture and whisk until smooth
- Pour the dough into the lined pan. It will look liquidly, but it will puff up a bit while it bakes. Smooth it out with a spatula.
- Bake for 10-12 minutes, until the center of the dough is cooked through. Let cool for 5 minutes before placing toppings on.
Paleo Pizza Sauce
- 6 oz tomato paste
- ½ cup crushed tomatoes
- 1 tsp of salt
- ½ tsp dried basil
- ½ tsp of garlic powder
DirectionsMix all ingredients in a bowl, and let sit for 5 minutes before spreading it on pizza.
Paleo Sausage Peppers and Onions Pizza
- 1 bell peppers, chopped (I like to use half of a red and half of an orange for color)
- ½ red onion, sliced finely
- ground spicy sausage
- cheese (I use daiya – dairy free cheese)
- Turn the oven up to 425°F
- Spread the sauce you just created (or if you cheated 😉 use that) on the crust and layer on bell peppers, onions, and crumbled ground sausage
- Bake for 12-15 minutes until cheese melts and onions have a little brown on them.
