Ham, Cheese + Pineapple Pizza
Perfect on a Sunday night with some Netflix action!
1/2 cup arrowroot powder
1/2 cup green banana flour
1/4 cup filtered/spring water
1 tbsp liquified oil (ghee, olive oil, coconut oil)
1/2 tsp Himalayan salt
Topping: Ham, Cheese + Pineapple
1 tbsp organic tomato paste
200g free-range clean ham (we buy the Tewantin ham from IGA)
Cheese of choice, grated (we use a firm sheep cheese from Aldi that melts)
1 cup pineapple (one of the very few times we consume pineapple from a tin containing BPA)
Or whatever toppings you like! The star of the show here is t he base!
We often have roast pumpkin and chicken, lamb mince and rosemary with sheep feta, you can ue whatever you like!
Stick blender (or whisk)
Oven tray or pizza stone
1. Pre-heat the oven to 170 degrees Celsius and line an oven tray with baking paper, or a pizza stone with baking paper cut to a round shape to fit (the mixture will be slightly runny but it will sit nicely on a standard size pizza stone)
2. Place all ingredients in the stick blender jug and blitz until smooth (or use a whisk but it'll be handy to combine arrowroot and water together first to avoid hard-to-whisk-out lumps that easily happen when arrowroot is added to a mixture without high-speed blending available)
3. Pour onto the baking paper on the tray or stone, use a spatula or spoon to spread the batter evenly, then place in the oven for 8-10 minutes
4. In the meantime, slice the ham and pineapple to desired shapes and sizes and set aside until the base is cooked
5. Remove the tray from the oven, spread tomato paste evenly across the surface then sprinkle toppings on, finishing with grated cheese on top
6. Place in the oven for a few minutes on a higher temp (about 200 should be fine) to warm through and melt the cheese
7. Remove from the oven, slice and serve
- if using toppings that require cooking (e.g. raw chicken pieces, sweet potato chunks etc), it's handy to pre-cook these in the oven or on the stove, because the base mixture is too runny before cooking for any toppings to be placed on, it's not a 'dough' as with traditional pizza, or even gluten and grain-free recipes/packet mixes.
- if your pizza stone is too small and the mixture looks like it'll run over the edges simply don't use all the mixture, but this recipe should suit standard pizza stones.
