- SERVES 2-4
- DIFFICULTY Easy
Ingredients2 large eggs
2 tsp. macadamia oil
2 cups blanched almond flour
¾ tsp. unrefined salt
1 tsp. dried basil leaves or Italian seasoning (optional)
1 cup mushrooms, sliced
1 garlic clove, minced
1 Tbs. butter
6 Tbs. gluten-free pizza sauce, or to taste
2/3 cup fresh spinach, chopped
¼ cup fresh basil, chopped
6 sun-dried tomatoes in olive oil, drained and patted dry (optional)
1½ cups shredded organic mozzarella cheese
Method1. Preheat oven to 180°C. Grease 9-inch pizza pan or cookie sheet. Beat eggs in medium mixing bowl. Mix in macadamia oil, almond flour, salt, and basil leaves. If mixture doesn’t easily form a ball, add more flour by the tablespoon.
2. Place ball of dough in center of prepared pizza pan. Press dough into place until it is 1cm thick throughout with a crust along the edges. Bake 15 minutes.
3. While crust is baking, sauté mushrooms and garlic in butter until just soft. Salt if desired.
4. Spread pizza sauce evenly over baked crust, and top with sautéed mushrooms, spinach, fresh basil, tomatoes, and shredded cheese. Return to oven, and bake 12–15 minutes more, or until cheese is melted. Transfer pizza to plate, slice into eighths, and serve.
