Hawaiian Pizza (AIP)

August 14, 2017

Ever tried cauliflower pizza crust? Don't. Going AIP sent me on a hopeless search through dozens of pizza crust recipes searching for something that tasted even remotely like real pizza that you didn't have to eat with a fork; all the while weeding through crusts packed with yucca, cassava, eggs, or tapioca. Pizza was always the one food I felt left out from when everyone else was eating. It's such a social food and most recipe "replica's" tasted like I was scooping up baked veggies with some weird avocado sauce. Well, those days are behind me and now they are for you too!

This is a pizza I could confidently take to a gathering of my junk-food eating friends and know that they would enjoy it too. And it's based off my favorite, most used food in the world (I need help)... Plantains!!! Let's get started!

 

Ingredients:

       Crust

-3 Green Plantains

-1 Cup Water

-2 Tablespoons Olive Oil

-1 Tablespoon Coconut Oil.

-1/3 Cup Coconut Flour (start here and work your way up)

-1 1/2 Tablespoons Dried Oregano

-1 Teaspoon Himalayan Pink Salt

-1/2 Teaspoon Garlic Powder

        Toppings I used

-AIP BBQ Sauce (recipe coming soon!!!)

-Fresh Pineapple

-Organic Onions 

-Organic Kalamata Olives 

-Organic Spinach 

-(I didn't use meat, but crockpot chicken would be really good)

 

Directions:

-Step #1: Preheat oven to 450.

-Step #2: Slice and peel plantains. Slice into small pieces. Melt coconut oil in skillet and pan fry plantains until able to pierce with a fork.

-Step #3: Add plantains to food processor and process until a dough forms. 

-Step #4: Add in water and olive oil. Process together.

-Step #5: Add in coconut flour, oregano, Himalayan pink salt, and garlic powder. Process until a thick dough forms similar to the consistency of a flour based pizza dough (add more coconut flour as needed)

-Step #6: Lay out a pizza pan with parchment paper. With wet hands, press out dough until around 1/2 to 3/4 inch thick. 

-Step #7: Place in oven for around 20 minutes or until crust begins to take on a golden brown color.

-Step #8: Prepare toppings and BBQ sauce. 

-Step #9: Remove crust from oven and cover with sauce and toppings.

-Step #10: Place back in the oven for an additional 15-20 minutes (or until toppings begin to brown, or soften)

-Step #11: Remove, let cool, enjoy, and be social! (I dip the crust in my favorite AIP ranch dressing. Recipe to come soon!)
