A substitute for pizza

The whole thing about how food can help to heal you is that you eat whole, unprocessed foods. However, once in a while, it is fun to try and mimic one of the unhealthy foods that we think we like with ingredients we know won't make us sick. Here is a recipe for a grain free pizza:

A “Paleolithic Pizza” Recipe
- 1 and a half cups of ALMOND MEAL/FLOUR (find at Whole Foods and Ocean State Job Lot or health store)
-1 egg
- 1 Tablespoon chia seeds + 3 tablespoons water (or substitute with 1 additional egg)
-3 tablespoons olive oil
-1tsp salt
-1/2 tsp baking powder or basking soda
-your favorite toppings (sauce, cheese, veggies etc...)

Combine chia seeds and water and let sit for 5 minutes. When it has become gooey, mix all ingredients together until well mixed. Let sit in fridge 30 minutes.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Sprinkle a miniscule amount of corn meal or coconut flour if you have it to a baking sheet, or use parchment paper, and flatten dough onto sheet. The flatter it is, the more the crust will become crispy. When finished, bake un-topped pizza for 5 minutes.

Remove from oven after 5 minutes and top with your favorite fixings. Continue baking 10-15 minutes or until very edges begin to brown.
