Thai basil and Prawn Paleo Pizza


My Kind of Pizza...

Pizza Base Ingredients and process...

Firstly pre-heat your oven to 180c, and grease a oven tray large enough for a medium size pizza to be baked on.
1 cup Almond meal
2 small garlic cloves minced 
1 tbsp of torn fresh Thai basil
1/2 tsp celtic sea salt
1/2 tsp ground black pepper
1 large free range Egg
1 tsp olive oil

Pizza Dough Ingredients

Step 1.

Add all dry ingredient (Almond meal, salt, and pepper) into a large mixing bowl. Make a well and add the wet ingredients (egg, minced garlic, olive oil and basil). Get your hand in there and really mix it up until it forms a nice ball.

Step 1.
Step 2.
This pizza dough isn't like normal pizza dough. Its a little bit softer and harder to roll out. You could sprinkle it with some coconut flour and it might stop it from sticking but this is how i did it. I rolled glad wrap out onto a bench, (cling form, plastic wrap what ever it is you want to call it). I placed the ball of pizza dough in the center. I then placed another piece of glad wrap the same size over the top and pressed them together around the pizza dough.
 Step 2.

Step 3.

I then Flattened it in a circular shape as much as I possibly could firstly with my hands.  I next grabbed my rolling pin and finished her off. This pizza dough is intended for rather thin style pizza. So as thin as possible for this dough.  It will keep it from going soggy.

Step 3.
Step 4. 
I next removed the top layer of plastic wrap from the pizza base. I followed with my hands pulling each side of plastic wrap up untill my hands were under the base. I then flipped it upside down onto the already greased pizza tray and popped her into my pre-heated oven, and baked her for around 10 minutes until golden brown. Set her aside while I continued my pizza.
 Step 4.

Topping Ingredients and cuts...

Step 1.
Spread the spinach first evenly over pasted pizza base. Next the red capsicums, prawns and then top with red onion. (I don't eat dairy so this counts out cheese for me, but if your a cheese eater Id go with a lite buffalo mozzarella) Pop the pizza into the oven for around 10 minutes.
