Dr Jockers Comments:

I do recommend consuming a grain-free diet but if you were going to consume grains it would be best to do either gluten-free or sprouted grains such as Ezekial bread.  Sprouted grains are more bioavailable as the nutrients are pre-digested and they contain less enzyme inhibitors.  The nutritional value, in particular, the b vitamins are believed to be higher in sprouted grains as well.

I want to be clear that I do not recommend consuming sprouted grains as they can still be inflammatory on our GI tract.  Some individuals handle and metabolize them well while others really struggle with them.  I discuss this topic in the article on Gluten and the Brain here

Either way, I would highly recommend using digestive enzymes before consuming this pizza and probiotics afterwards to help with the digestive process and reduce inflammatory development in the GI system.

This is a fun recipe you can try and you can also use our Grain –Free pizza crusts here, almond flour pizza crust here and coconut flour pizza crusts.

Your kids will love this much healthier and great tasting version of an American favorite.
