I have been craving pizza lately, every time I walk past dominos on my way to work, I drawl with my envious greedy eyes. But I know it’s not worth even a bite as I would blow up like a puff monster and became very fatigued and unwell.
So I have decided to create my version of a pizza, but one that I can tolerate, I also made them mini for the fun of it. The pizza base is paleo, I used sweet potato, apple and chicken to create a doe and it worked surprisingly well and then used a beetroot pesto to replace the tomato sauce, and then placed sliced veg on the top, as you would for the topping and then just skipped the cheese, but the moorish pesto sauce seemed to make up for this, and it came out really yummy, and was pretty easy and fast to make too, which helped the matter.
Ingredients – Pizza Base
- 1 and a half sweet potatoes chopped in quarters
- 3/4 of a chicken breast
- 1 apple chopped in quarters and the seeds taken out
- pinch rock salt
- half a tablespoon of coconut oil (odourless)
Put the oven to gas mark 5, then put all the ingredients into a food processor for around a minute, or until blended well like a wet doe mix, half way through you may need to use a spoon to move bits off the side to help it blend better. Once done, grease a dish with some odourless coconut oil, or use grease proof paper, then spoon the mixture out into separate small flat circles, i did them quite thin so they were crispy. Bake in the oven for around 25 minutes.
- half a courgette
- 1 beetroot
- 1 clove of garlic
- 4 tablespoon of olive oil
- fresh rosemary
- rock salt
- teaspoon of water
Put all the ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth, then take the pizza bases out of the oven and spread the pesto over each one, I also added on top some thin sliced onion, butternut squash and celery, then baked in the oven for another 10-15 minutes, then it’s ready to munch, can also be served with a fresh salad on the side, but is nice on it’s own as well.
