Pizza was one of my all-time favorite foods growing up. I would always ask for it for my birthday. I have barely touched pizza in the last 10 years until now!!
Coconut flour is a low-carb, fiber rich flour source. It bakes differently than typical wheat or even almond flour. You typically need more eggs and butter than the other flours because the coconut flour soaks it up.
We added garlic and oregano to the pizza crust to add anti-microbial, anti-oxidant rich nutrients. The grass-fed butter and or ghee adds butyric acid which is a powerful anti-inflammatory fat as well as key anti-oxidants and conjugated linoleic acid (CLA). CLA strengthens our immune system and improves fat burning.
Pasture-raised eggs are rich in phophatydlcholine, which is a key nutrient for healthy brain and nervous system function. Eggs are also great sources of clean protein and anti-oxidants such as retinol and vitamin E.
You will love this crust! You can add in some organic tomato sauce and grass-fed raw cheese along with pizza herb seasoning for a traditional plain pizza. Add whatever toppings you like such as mushrooms, bell peppers, anchovies, onions, etc. Enjoy!
