Pizza Mind: Body SymmetryMD 's Paleo Sausage & Mushroom Pizza

Although its roots are Italian, pizza seems to be one heck of an American favorite. It's also one of those no-no foods when we're watching our waistlines... unless you opt for a more healthful version that is! 

Check out this great new recipe from our Body SymmetryMD wellness squad for Paleo -style pizza (yum). It tastes just like the real thing but with only a fraction of the calories and fat!

Paleo Sausage & Mushroom Pizza

- 1 cup almond flour
- 3 Tbs almond butter
- 2 eggs, beaten
- 1/2 tsp sea salt
- 3 tsp olive oil, divided
- 1/2 cup yellow onion, diced
- 4 mushrooms, sliced
- 1 large Italian sausage, cut in 1/2" slices
- 2 cloves garlic, minced (omitted)
- 1 red pepper, diced (omitted)
- 1/2 cup marinara or tomato sauce, with no sugar added
- 1/2 tsp dried oregano (omitted)
- 1/2 tsp fennel seed (omitted)
- 1/2 cup cherry or grape tomatoes, sliced in half (omitted)

1. Preheat the oven to 350.
2. Mix almond flour, almond butter, eggs and sea salt in a small bowl.
3. Cover a baking sheet with 2 tsp olive oil then spread the mixture over it, making a 1/4" thick crust. Bake for 10 minutes.
4. Meanwhile, add the remaining olive oil, onions, mushrooms and sliced sausage to a large skillet over medium-high heat until the sausage is browned and the onions are slightly translucent. Remove from skillet and set aside.
5. Add garlic and red pepper to the skillet. Saute the vegetables for a few minutes, or until slightly tender. (Note: do not cook the vegetables entirely in the skillet or they will be too soft when cooked on the pizza.)
6. Remove the crust from the oven and cover with marinara sauce. Add the sausage and sauteed vegetables. Sprinkle with oregano and fennel seed, then bake for 20-30 minutes.
Remove from oven when fully cooked and top with sliced tomatoes.
7. Carefully lift the slices out of the pan, as the dough will still be soft.
8. Serve and enjoy eating Paleo -friendly (makes 4 big slices)!
