Originally my proposal for pizza while eating a lower carb diet was the pita pizza. The ultimate inovation when it came to a fast delicious personal pizza. Indeed it transformed a dark winter into a wonder of guacamole and spicy flavors. Wonder on every level, however now we are into another year and the demand is made from the paleo world that the grains must be sacrificed and yet pizza continues to be one of my favorite foods in a my salt craving world. The solution it appears is to buy stock in nut flours, as once again I am turning to them to form the basis of the pizza crust. I personally find this to be more of a creipe style crust, but it does the trick. If you are looking at the two topping options I list here and happen to be wondering how to make a pizza that you like I would suggest that you go and play in heavy traffic for a while before emailing me any questions.
Mix the nut flour, cashew butter, and egg whites in a small bowl. Grease a pizza baking sheet the olive oil, then spread the “dough” mixture over it. Preheat the oven to 250 F.
From there add your toppings. If you are putting a meat of some kind on I would suggest cooking it before placing it on the pizza, though the veggies can go on raw as they will cook just fine with the pizza.
Cover the dough with the salsa, then add the meat and vegetables, excluding the tomatoes. Add the oregano then bake for 10-20 minutes. Remove from oven, add any ingredients you wish to have fresh and the pizza is done.
