(Almost) Paleo Mexican Pizza

« | »

from Joel

"Ya gotta have cheese on pizza!"

Ingredients:
 
3 cups shredded zucchini
3/4 cup egg whites (I use "Best of the Egg Whites" from a carton in the egg section of the grocery store)
1/3 cup coconut flour
1/2 teaspoon salt (optional)
salsa
pre-cooked turkey sausage
bell pepper
onion
avocado
shredded cheese
 
Directions:
 
1. In a bowl, combine zucchini and egg whites, mix well. Add flour and salt, stir well. Spread onto the bottom of a 12-in. pizza pan coated with nonstick cooking spray.
 
2. Bake at 450 degrees F for 10-15 minutes or until edges of "crust" begin to brown. Remove crust from oven. Reduce heat to 350 degrees F. Spread thin layer of salsa on top of crust. sprinkle on cheese. Add other toppings. Sprinkle more cheese over the top. Bake 15-20 minutes until crust edges are brown and cheese is melted.
 
*Note: you can make this with any toppings you like. I have done this crust and used pesto for the sauce and added normal pizza toppings. Use your imagination. This is an "eat with a fork" recipe. The more toppings you add the harder the pieces are to pick up.

    What is the crust made out of Joel?

  2. The crust is made from the zucchini, egg whites and coconut flour. It rises like a bread crust when baked in the oven.
