- Gluten-free pizza crust
- Toppings of choice: olives uncured pepperoni, sausage, mushrooms, sun dried tomatoes, roasted garlic, roasted red peppers, pesto, Canadian Bacon, pineapple, and cheese.
For the crust:
- 1-2 large plantains peeled and sliced into ¼” rounds
- ¼ cup almond flour
- 1-2 tablespoons coconut oil
- ½ teaspoon oregano
- ½ teaspoon salt
1.) Preheat the oven to 375° Melt coconut oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook the plantains until golden brown on both sides. Set to the side until all plantains are cooked.
2.) Place plantains in a food processor, and pulse with salt and oregano until dough is formed. Place the dough onto a piece of parchment paper lightly dusted with almond flour and roll out into a crust to your desired thickness, use more almond flour as needed to keep it from sticking.
3.) Bake 20-30 minutes, or until golden brown. Be sure to flip halfway through cooking time.
4.) Spread the sauce evenly across the crust and then add the toppings of your choice. Bake until the edges of the crust is lightly browned and cheese is melted, about 10-15 min. Take out of the oven and enjoy your delicious pizza!
