Courgette Crust Pizza
Courgette Crust Pizza - Primal, Paleo, Kid Friendly and Clean Eating
I do love pizza but really don't like the after effects of eating normal pizza, this is a really nice alternative that is full of flavour and won't leave you feeling bloated and sick.
8 cups courgette, grated
1cup cheddar cheese, grated
1/3cup coconut flour
2 cloves garlic, minced
3tsp. dried oregano
2 eggs, beaten
Plus Pizza sauce and pizza toppings
Preheat oven to 300 degrees C/ 550 degrees F, if you have a pizza stone put it in the oven while it preheats, if you do not have a pizza stone put a baking tray in the oven to heat up.
Grate the courgette and press it to remove any excess liquid, I like to use a clean cotton dishtowel.
In a large bowl, combine the courgette with the cheese, flour, garlic, oregano, basil, eggs, and salt.
Mix everything together your hands; make sure it is evenly combined.
Cut a piece of baking paper that fits onto your pizza stone or baking tray.
Put the baking paper onto a chopping board so that it is easy to transfer the pizza crust to the oven.
Lay out your pizza dough onto the baking paper and use your fingers to spread it out, you should spread it out to a thickness of about 1cm.
Transfer your pizza crust on the baking paper to the preheated pizza stone/baking tray.
Bake until the crust starts to brown, usually between 8 – 15 minutes, it will depend on your oven.
Once cooked take the pizza out of the oven, be sure to leave it on the baking paper when you take it out of the oven.
Top your pizza then put it back into the oven and bake for about 5 minutes.
