Pizza Sauce

Ok, last one for today. I really need to get something else done; I mean, I have monsters to kill in WoW who have been lonesome today because I haven’t been in there! This recipe for pizza sauce is taken out of a bigger recipe for a whole pizza. It was published by George at Civilized Caveman Cooking, but the recipe comes from a new cookbook called “Gather” by Hayley Mason and Bill Staley who have written other cookbooks together. I have preordered “Gather” and can’t wait to get it and then invite all my friends over for a dinner made from their recipes.

Ingredients

  1. 14 ounces crushed, fire-roasted tomatoes
  2. 6 ounces tomato paste
  3. 1 clove garlic, pressed (I just minced mine up)
  4. 2 tablespoons finely minced onion
  5. 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  6. 1 teaspoon dried basil
  7. Salt and pepper, to taste

Instructions

  1. In a medium saucepan, heat the fire-roasted tomatoes and tomato paste over medium heat.
  2. Add the pressed garlic, minced onion, oregano, basil, salt and pepper.
  3. Stir to combine and let the sauce simmer for at least 10 minutes. (It can simmer while you make the pizza crust.)
  4. Smooth a small portion of the sauce on the pizza crust, using more or less depending on your preference.

Pizza Crust

This is a great Paleo grain-free pizza crust. It holds up to adding stuff on top so you can actually pick it up and eat it. You could also make this a bit thicker with no toppings as a Focaccia bread. This recipe is from The Unrefined Kitchen which I’ve just found thanks to a bundle of e-books I purchased. I can’t wait to peruse the site when I have more time.

Ingredients

  1. 2 cups almond flour
  2. 1 cup arrowroot powder (I substituted tapioca flour and it came out fine)
  3. 1-1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  4. 1-1/2 teaspoon salt
  5. 1-1/2 teaspoon oregano
  6. 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  7. 3 eggs
  8. 1/2 cup almond milk

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 425ºF.
  2. Grease a round pizza pan (no holes) or cookie sheet. (She used a 15″ round baking stone.)
  3. Combine dry ingredients in a large bowl. Whisk to blend together.
  4. Add eggs and almond milk to the dry ingredients. Mix well. (The batter will be runny-not like typical pizza dough.)
  5. Use a spatula to spread batter onto greased pan.
  6. Bake crust in preheated oven 8-12 minutes.
  7. Remove crust from oven and top with sauce and desired toppings.
  8. Bake for another 10-15 minutes.
