Paleo Pizza Crust fullscreen

  • 1 whole eggplant, grated and squeeze out water in cheese cloth or a clean kitchen towel.
  • 1/4 cup flax seed meal
  • 1/4 cup almond meal/flour
  • 1 egg
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 tsp coconut oil

-preheat oven to 350 degrees

-pour grated, squeezed eggplant into a large mixing bowl

-add flax meal and almond meal

-beat egg in a small bowl and add

-mix ingredients until well combined

-pour batter out onto a parchment lined baking sheet (I recently found that spraying the parchment with a good quality coconut oil

spray  makes the whole process a breeze)

-smooth it out with hands into a thin layer about 1/8th inch thick.

-bake for 30-35 minuts

-remove the crust from the oven. Lightly grease another piece of parchment and place onto crust.  Carefully flip the crust and then slowly peel off the parchment from the bottom side.

-brush the flipped side with coconut oil and bake for about 15 more minutes

-remove from oven  and apply toppings and spices

-Bake for an additional 7-10 minutes.

    I made this tonight and the flvaor is pretty good the spices really cover up the taste of the coconut (which would otherwise seem an odd note with pizza flavors). However, I noticed that in your description, you said that in tweaking your original recipe, you added a couple tablespoons of olive oil, but the recipe as posted only calls for 1 tbs. Also, I think that baking on a silicon mat prevents the crust from becoming really crisp, so next time I am going to use parchment paper to see how that works.Thanks for the recipe!

      I never use olive oil to bake, it is not stable enough to handle heat. The Tropical Traditions Expeller Pressed
      oil does not have any coconut flavor, so you can use it in anything, no need to cover up any flavor. The parchment paper works well. Enjoy it!!
