February 9 is National Pizza Day. And who can go without eating a delicious slice of pizza? Many people think that if they are eating gluten free or are on an anti-inflammatory diet that pizza is not an option. Well, we’re here to tell you that you can absolutely have the tomato-y goodness with this gluten free pizza recipe. There is no cheese but we’ve added so much punch with flavor that you won’t miss the cheese. If you are eating a Keto Diet, go ahead and add the amount of cheese that works with your plan for the day.
We are giving you a recipe that is the deluxe version of a pizza but if you don’t like these ingredients, add your favorite protein and/or veggies to customize it to your liking.
Gluten Free Pizza
- 1 cup almond flour
- 3 Tbsp almond butter
- 2 eggs, beaten
- ½ tsp sea salt
- 3 tsp olive oil, divided
- ½ cup onion, diced
- 4 mushrooms, sliced
- 4 oz Italian sausage
- 4 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled
- 4 slices prosciutto
- 2 garlic cloves, minced
- 1/2 cup fresh spinach, finely chopped
- 1 bell pepper, diced
- ½ cup tomato sauce
- ½ tsp dried oregano
- ½ tsp fennel seed
- ½ cup cherry tomatoes, halved
- Red pepper flakes to taste
- Preheat oven to 350°F.
- In a small bowl, combine almond flour, almond butter, eggs and sea salt. Spread 2 tsp oil on a baking sheet and spread the mixture on top, making a ¼” thick crust. Place the sheet in the oven for 10 minutes.
- Warm a skillet over medium heat and add the remaining olive oil, onions, mushrooms and sausage. Cook, breaking up the sausage, until browned and the onions are opaque. Remove the mixture from the skillet into a separate bowl.
- Put the garlic and bell pepper into the skillet and sauté – do not cook them all the way, as they will be cooking more in the oven.
- Remove the crust from the oven and spread the tomato sauce on top. Top with the sausage mixture, bacon pieces, prosciutto, sautéed veggies, spinach, oregano and fennel seed.
- Bake for 20–30 minutes. Be careful when taking the slices off the sheet as the dough may be soft. Garnish with sliced tomatoes and sprinkle with red pepper flakes if desired.
- Change up your protein and change up the veggies to make your toppings different every time you make a pizza.
