PIZZA!!! PIZZA!!! PIZZA!!!

You know Pizza is something greatly missed in ANY diet!  It was great to try this pizza recipe and see the happy look on Justin’s face the first time he tried it!  And I even thought it tasted good!  Wendy said she has tried it for her son, Cameron, and he likes it too! 

John’s Pizza Recipe #2  from Breaking The Vicious Cycle page 111

Crust:  1/2 cup almond flour (add more as necessary for a workable dough consistency)  (I think I used about 1 cup)

1 egg

1 teaspoon extra virgin olive oil

Italian spices such as oregano and basil to taste

In a bowl mix the above ingredients together and add more flour as needed to form a ball.  Oil a pan with olive oil (can use a pizza pan or a non-stick pizza pan).  Add the dough ball pressing down with the hands to form the shape of a small pizza crust.  Do not worry if it is not as big as the pan. 

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees WITH the crust in pan (this allows the crust to setup and brown a bit.)  By the time the oven heats up, the crust should be crisp and ready for the toppings.

Toppings:

Very thin-sliced tomatoes (I put the sugar-free Ragu spaghettis sauce or the marinara sauce from digestivewellness.com)

Havarti Cheese (I put half grated cheddar cheese and half grated swiss cheese, because these are Justin’s favorites)

Basil and Oregano

(I also put ground hamburger meat and bacon pieces all over the top.  Dump whatever your child likes on there!  Peppers, pork, onions, pineapple, chicken, etc.)

Optional: Italian seasoning may be increased to include others that you like such as garlic, etc.

Drizzle with olive oil and bake for 10 minutes.
