Coconut Flour Pizza Crust

Coconut Flour Pizza Crust

4 cups whole milk grated Mozarella or two cups each mozarella and cheddar
4 eggs
1 tsp organic onion powder
1 tsp organic oregano
1 tsp organic basil
1/2 tsp organic garlic
1/2 tsp sea salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
4 T flax meal or pecan meal
4 T coconut flour
Preheat oven to 425.
Mix all ingredients in a bowl until well combined.
Line a cookie tray with parchment paper and spread the cheese mixture on the paper as thinly as possible.  I cover it with wax paper and roll it out.  Discard the wax paper.
Reduce heat to 400 and bake on the top rack for about 15 minutes, or until the crust is starting to look golden in places.
Remove from the oven and add desired toppings.
Bake for a few minutes, just to melt cheese on top.

Chocolate Chip Cheese Cakechocolate-chip-cheesecake-pic

Step One – Crust

3 C. blanched almond flour or meal

1 Tablespoon unsweetened cocoa powder

Mix well

12 T. butter, melted (stick and a half)

Add ½ teaspoon SweetLeaf Clear Stevia and ½ teaspoon vanilla to the melted butter.

Add the sweetened melted butter to the dry mix.

Mix well.  Press into a 9 x 13 or 10 x 14 pan.

 

Step Two – Filling

3 – 8 oz. packages cream cheese, softened to room temp (couple of hours sitting on the counter)

½ C. Erythritol

½ teaspoon SweetLeaf Clear Stevia

6 medium or 5 large eggs

1 ½ t. vanilla

1 cup Lily’s dark stevia sweetened chocolate chips or 1 cup chopped Chocoperfection Bar or Lily’s Dark Chocolate Bar.

Cream cheese with Erythritol and Clear Stevia.  Add eggs one at a time until mixture is smooth.  Add Vanilla. Stir in the chips or chopped chocolate. Pour into pan on top of crust.  Bake at 300° on lowest rack for 1 hour.

Step Three – Topping

1½ pts. sour cream

¼ C. Erythritol and ¼ teaspoon of Clear Stevia

2 t. vanilla

Remove cake from the oven.  Pour sour cream mix on top of hot cake.  Put back in the oven for 15 minutes.

Step Four – Refrigerate for 24 hours.
Okay, I don’t always have 24 hours, so I stick it into the freezer for a couple of hours and then, pull it back out and serve it.

Step Five – While the cake is cooling, chop another bar or get some chips ready to sprinkle over the top and melt a Lily’s or Chocoperfection chocolate bar and add a little coconut oil to make it a little thinner, probably 1 or 2 teaspoons to a bar. … Drizzle it over the cheesecake.

Flourless Cheesy Bread Recipe

Just made this for lunch.  It is amazingly good!

I used 1/2 c mozzarella because I didn’t have Parmesan.

I put 1/4 teaspoon REAL salt and sprinkled a good bit of garlic granules in the mix.  We all liked it and I will definitely be doing this again.

Flourless Cheesy Bread Recipe

(Grain-Free, Gluten-Free, Primal-Friendly)

Serves 4

Ingredients:

  • 1 egg, preferably from pastured hens
  • 1/2 cup packed grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 cup packed shredded cheddar cheese
  • 2 tb plain whole milk yogurt
  • 1/4 cup arrowroot*
  • pinch cayenne pepper
  • pinch fine ground celtic sea salt
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda

 

Instructions:

1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

2. Combine all ingredients in a medium bowl. Mix with a hand mixer until well-combined. [Elizabeth: I used my standing mixer for this recipe, but a hand mixer would definitely work just as well.]

3. Spread the mixture onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or anExopat. Use a silicone spatula to spread the mixture out as thin as you can make it without seeing any holes.

4. Bake at 350 degrees for 18-22 minutes. The edges should be very browned, and the top should be nicely browned. [Elizabeth: mine took a few minutes longer–I don’t think I spread it quite thin enough!]

5. Remove from the oven and cool for a few minutes. Then use a pizza cutter or knife to cut the bread into wedges or pieces.

6. Serve! Leftovers can be refrigerated in an airtight container. To reheat, just place the slices in a toaster oven set at 200-250 degrees for a few minutes.

* Arrowroot is not GAPS-legal. See reader comment below for a GAPS-legal substitution.  (1/8 cup coconut flour for GAPS)
