My family DOES NOT abide by the same dietary needs or restrictions that I follow. Which is okay, except on days when the family decides to makes pizza. Warm, delicious, ooey-gooey pizza. The whole house fills with the smell. It is at this point I rush to my room, hugging a bowl of almonds. Is this normal?
Well, I have found how to fill the void. Anna-friendly pizza. It has a coconut flour crust. Homemade Red Sauce (Tomato Free) and the topping are really up to you, I was just feeling full-fledged Mexican today.
1 c Coconut milk
1 tsp Garlic powder
1 tsp Onion Powder
1/2 c Coconut flour
1/2 tsp Baking powder
Dash of Salt
Preheat oven to 375. In a bowl beat eggs, milk, garlic and onion powder. Add flour, baking soda, and salt to the mix. The dough will look more like a batter than a dough. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper. Pour “dough” onto the parchment paper and with a fork spread into large circle (NOT TOO THIN!)
Bake for 20 minutes, remove from heat and using the parchment paper to your advantage flip crust onto desired plate for toppings. Top to your liking and bake in oven for addition 3-5 minutes. I topped with Red Sauce, Goat’s Milk Cheese, Carnitas and Avocados. Enjoy!
Mexican Red Sauce:
(Perfect for Enchiladas, Shredded Beef or making your own Paleo Mexican Pizza!)
7-8 ounzes California Chilipods
3 Garlic Cloves
Salt and Pepper
1/2 fresh Lemon Juice
1/2-1 c Gluten Free Chicken Broth
Bring a large pot of water to a boil. While waiting for water boil, remove and separate the stems and the seeds from the chilipods. If you have open wounds, put some band-aids on! Discard the stems but save the seeds, now you have chili flakes.
Take the empty chilipods and blanch them in the boiling water for one minute, no more. Remove and place into large blender. Add garlic, onion, bay leaf, salt and pepper and broth. Blend thoroughly. If you prefer your sauce less thick, strain or add more broth, if not Enjoy!
