Buffalo Mozzarella, Goats Cheese or your favourite cheese substitute. (For a cheese substitute, try using cashew cheese)
In a cup or small bowl prepare the yeast mixture first by mixing the water with the yeast and honey. Whisk thoroughly.
Cover with cling film and sit the vessel in a warm but not hot environment. Allow the mixture to become foaming and frothy. This should happen after around 10-15 minutes.
In another small container/bowl whisk together a tablespoon of Olive Oil, 1 ½ tsp of the Apple Cider Vinegar and the egg white.
Next put the almond flour and tapioca flour into another mixing bowl. Add all the wet ingredients and then a pinch of salt. Bring the dough together into a ball with your hands.
Cover the bowl with a tea-towel or cling film and allow the dough to sit for 75-90 minutes. The dough will not rise too much, but you should see a small change in size.
Pre-heat the oven to 240°C /220°C Fan/ Gas Mark 7.
Place some parchment paper onto a rimless baking sheet or pizza stone if you have one. Put the dough ball onto the parchment and push into a circle - use the tips of your fingers. This dough will be too crumbly to roll out.
Once spread out evenly use around a tablespoon of the Olive Oil and rub across the surface of the dough.
Bake in the middle of the oven for 8-10 minutes or until the base is golden brown. You should see a few bubbles across the surface.
Whilst the base is baking prepare the tomato sauce and toppings. To make the tomato sauce for the base put the tomato puree, 3-4 Tablespoons of Olive Oil, 2-3 teaspoons of Apple Cider Vinegar, the Coconut Sugar, a pinch of salt and the Italian Mixed Herbs into a small bowl and combine. Then go on to prepare the rest of your toppings.
Remove the par-baked pizza base from the oven and using the back of a dessert spoon spread the tomato sauce evenly across the pizza base. Add your toppings and place in the oven for a further 10-15 minutes or until the toppings are lightly browned on top and the edges of the base have become a richer brown colour.
Garnish with cracked black pepper, olive halves and fresh basil leaves, then serve.
About the Paleo Diet
The Paleo Diet is a way of thinking about food based on what our pre-civilisation ancestors may have eaten. It takes its cues from the hunter-gatherer lifestyle and hence incorporates nuts, seeds and fruit rather than grains or refined foods. The Paleo Diet is thus quite high in protein, fibre and essential nutrients, and low in refined carbohydrates - making it simply a sensible way of eating. It's a contrast from crash-diets such as Atkins or Dukan, which are a bit extreme. Atkins and Dukan diets restrict you from eating fruit and vegetables, which we think is terrible!
There is no strict definition of the Paleo Diet, and indeed we don't advocate too much rigidity - instead preferring that people eat a varied diet. One variant of the Paleo Diet is the Primal Diet, which allows a little rule-bending to allow things like cheese. In general, most of your favourite recipes can be re-worked to be Paleo or Primal, and hence we call this diet the "Delicious Diet"!
