Mini Primal Pizzas: Bacon, Cheese & Herb

Hey there primal peeps! This is one recipe you definitely want to try; it will become an instant favorite. Before going any further, let me say this; the bacon is IN the crust yo! That's what's up.

On a separate note, I'm trying out a new online teaching program called PowHow. It's a website that allows students (you) to take all kinds of classes with coaches (me) from around the world, using webcam. It's a pretty neat concept because it opens up opportunity for people from anywhere to train with anyone. Many coaches have been doing this for some time, but there has never been a website devoted to the organized approach of it until now. I've got 2 programs available on PowHow starting NOW. Please take a moment to check out my online studio here. I promise not to turn this blog into a sales pitch, but for anybody who is interested in learning a thing or two about kettlebells and how to improve movement efficiency of the whole body, I welcome you to invest in some training with me. You can always find me on PowHow by searching for "Sex, Food & Kettlebells" or "Jon Randles".

Back to pizza! This recipe is off the hook. This is Barbara's latest baby, and every time she makes it for me I propose to her AGAIN. Of all the paleo-ish pizza recipes we have tried, nothing seems to compare to the consistency of these little sex bombs. It's the closest thing to a "real" slice of pizza, and you might even like it better. To the kitchen!

TIME: 35 min

YIELD: 8 mini pizzas

INGREDIENTS:

1/3 cup coconut flour

3/4 cup coconut milk (BPA free can)

3 eggs (free-range)

2 tbs organic butter

7 pieces Mennonite bacon (save the bacon fat after cooking)

1 garlic clove minced

2 tsp fresh rosemary minced

1.5 tbs fresh thyme minced

1/2 tsp black pepper

1/2 tsp Himalayan sea salt

1/2 tsp baking soda

8 oz organic quality tomato or pizza sauce

7 oz goat mozzarella

PROCESS:

1. Preheat oven to 375F.

2. In a bowl, mix eggs, coconut flour, coconut milk, herbs, baking soda, and spices with a hand mixer.

3. In a pan, cook bacon until crispy. Set aside on a plate to cool. Save the bacon fat for use later in the recipe!

4. In a small saucepan, melt butter, and then add to coconut flour mixture. Mix with hand mixer.

5. Chop cooled bacon into small pieces, and fold into pizza dough using a spatula.

6. Line baking sheets with unbleached parchment paper, and using a spoon, scoop portions of pizza dough onto baking sheets. Ensure you leave plenty of space in between portions, as this dough will spread. Flatten down into a general circular mini pizza shape prior to placing in the oven.

7. Bake for 20 min.

8. Remove from oven, and brush with bacon fat. Allow to absorb.

9. Add approx 1 tablespoon of tomato/pizza sauce to each pizza and spread. Add goat mozzarella and ensure it covers sauce in a thin layer.

10. Bake for another 10 min, remove, and serve.
