Paleo Pizza

Pizza... a cacophony of wheat flour and cheese. It could never be paleo and you must therefore live without it forever, right? No way! Cavegirl in the kitchen to the rescue. This pizza recipe is decidedly grain free, and should be dairy free as well although caveman wasn't quite sold on that idea...

The Crust:

Per person..
1 Cup Almond Meal*
1 Whole Egg
1 tsp olive oil
1/2 tsp salt

Beat the egg first then mush it all together to form a dough. Press it into a pan and bake first at 400 deg for 15-ish minutes or until it starts to brown. This was for two so I doubled the dough recipe.

The Sauce:
1 small can tomato paste (preferably organic)
An equivalent amount of water
2 tsp oregano
2 tsp basil
drops of hot sauce
if you like a bit of kick

Anything you can imagine from the world of meats and veggies, nuts and seeds. Think chicken, bacon, avocados, artichokes, spinach, garlic, pesto, pineapple, peppers, jalapenos, tomatoes, and on and on.

* Almond meal is available in bags at Dad's Organic Market, but you could also make it yourself by pulsing almonds in a food processor or coffee grinder. Be careful not to grind too much or you will end up with almond butter. Although that would be a delicious mistake....


  1. After the sauce and toppings are added, how long and at what temperature is it baked?

  2. so how long do you cook the pizza after the toppings are on?

  3. Very interesting! I just heard of Paleo cooking and this was the first recipe I found - I'm going to give it a whirl!

  4. Great recipe. I have even had people that refuse to eat paleo ask me to make this for them

  5. This is awesome! Thanks!

  6. I'm allergic to eggs, so experimented with your recipe by subbing 1/2cup pumpkin puree for the egg. I added an extra tsp olive oil and baked it a little longer. DELICIOUS! Thank you for sharing the recipe.

  7. Love this pizza recipe. Made it a version of it called "Breakfast Pizza":
    Crust as normal

    - Beat some eggs
    - Cook some extra lean, organic sausage
    - Put eggs on crust (pre cooked)
    - Then top with cooked sausage, spinach, freshly ground pepper, sliced tomatoes.
    - Cook till crust is done and eggs are done (I doubled the crust recipe, used four eggs and cooked for 20 minutes and it was perfect!)
