Jerad 's Paleo Pizza
So none of these are measured, I was just guessing because of the size of the pan I used.
2 parts macadamia nuts to 1 part walnuts, chopped in a food processor
because of the macadamia nuts, this will be a paste, and will hold together pretty well. Almost like a cookie dough.
spread nut mixture into greased cookie sheet or pizza pan and place in preheated oven on 375, and bake just nut mixture for 20 minutes, until golden brown. Remove from oven.
Take spaghetti or pizza sauce and distribute evenly over "crust"
because the nuts are not cohesive like dough, it will slightly pull apart as you are spreading the sauce.
Add other pizza ingredients over sauce as desired, I used Mozzarella cheese, turkey pepperoni, low sodium bacon, garlic, and onions
Bake entire pizza for 15 minutes @ 375
let cool, slice with pizza slicer or knife
eat with a fork and enjoy.
honestly, I thought this could turn out really bad, but it turned out to be completely delicious and a very nice alternative. This is something I would eat while not on a diet.
post what other variations and ingredients you used.
Sam's Paleo Pizza (Alena's version from last night)
Chicken breast - hammer out with flat end of meat tenderizer to a nice thin piece of chicken.
Spray both sides with a light coat of olive oil spray.
Place in the broiler - about a minute on each side. (keeps the chicken moist)
Pull out of broiler, heat oven to 400 degrees.
Place toppings of your choice on the "pizza crust" - I made 4 different ones, with marinara sauce, turkey pepperoni and cheese as one. Another was bbq sauce, squash, garlic, mushrooms, and cheese. A marinara sauce, turkey pepperoni, mushrooms, and cheese as another. And the last was bbq sauce, turkey pepperoni, garlic and cheese.
Bake on 400 degrees for about 20 minutes.
Quiche - (Sam told me her version I changed it a little)
Almond meal and egg whites - did not measure this, so just make a nice dough/paste.
Sprayed glass baking dish with olive oil spray, placed dough in dish in about a 1/4 inch level around the bottom, baked in the oven on 400 degrees (made right after paleo pizza) for about 15 mins, pull it out make sure still moist, but not sticky to your hands gooey.
Squash, garlic, and mushrooms - cut up small pieces, sauteed in a pan with butter first.
Turkey - I took pre cut turkey breast strips, lightly cooked (no pink)
Eggs - 5 whole eggs, 1 cup of egg whites.
Mixed all the ingredients together, placed in glass baking dish on top of baked almond crust - cooked for about 20-25 minutes - until the insides are done. Added a light coat of cheese on top for good measure. :-)
Had it for breakfast today, and it was really good!
