So sorry its been awhile guys! Last week was my spring break from school, which you would think would mean I had lots of time on my hands. However, I took advantage of the break in school work, to get ahead in school work and spend sometime with my daughter. This week I have been working a temp job all week, in addition to school. So as you can see I have been keeping very busy! Look for a post on planning meals and staying primal/paleo even during a busy week later!
So last night I had a craving for pizza and here is what we came up with! Super easy and fast!
Great recipe size for 1-2 people. If you are making for a large family you will probably want to double this recipe!
Crust – Thank you Elana Amsterdam and “The GLUTEN-FREE ALMOND FLOUR cookbook”!
1 1/2 cups almond flour
1/4 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. baking soda
1 tbsp. olive oil (she used grapeseed oil, but olive worked just fine)
1 large egg
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Set aside a large baking sheet. Cut 2 pieces of parchment paper to the size of the baking sheet.
In a large bowl, combine the almond flour, salt, and baking soda. In a medium bowl, whisk together olive oil and egg. Stir the wet ingredients into the almond flour mixture until throughly combined.
Place dough between the 2 sheets of parchment paper and roll into a 10-inch circle, 1/8 inch thick. Remove the top piece of parchment paper and transfer the bottom piece of parchment paper with the rolled-out dough onto the baking sheet.
Bake for 15 to 20 minutes, until lightly golden. Mine only took 15 minutes in an un-preheated oven, so keep an eye on it. (I start my ground beef while this is cooking, see below) Remove from oven when finished.
1 lb. ground beef (you won’t need a full pound, so you will have a little leftovers)
marinara sauce/pizza sauce
a bunch of green onion
1 can of black olives
shredded cheddar cheese
While the crust is cooking I cook the ground beef until done. Set that aside, next I chop my black olives and green onions. Once the crust is finished I top with whatever kind of sauce I am using, the cooked ground beef, black olives, green onion, and lastly cheese. I then place it back in the oven for 10-15 minutes to heat everything through and melt the cheese. Then you done! Super easy and fast! And most importantly, yummy!
