Roasted Tomato and Zucchini Paleo Pizza

This roasted tomato and zucchini paleo pizza is made with a flax and almond flour crust.

I’m only 1 month into this crossfit stuff and somehow Fran and I have met twice already. Yesterday was an improvement, 2 more ripped calluses, no breaks with the thrusters (granted I’m only using half as much weight as I should be) and kipping pull ups using a #2 band, not a bastardized attempt off the box. It’s satisfying to improve even when it’s just a smidge but I’m still far from reality.

Kinda like this pizza.

Paleo roasted tomato and zucchini pizza

The term “pizza” shall be used lightly here. There’s no doughy chew to this crust and there’s no globs of delicious mozzarella pulling apart with each slice. There’s also no guilt after eating 4 slices though.

I thought I’d test this whole almond/flax seed crust thing out when carbs were calling my name at lunch the other day. Trickery is a great thing.

Here’s the thing, it’s definitely not your typical pizza. but with each bite I liked it more and more. At first, your mind is just like “um, what the eff is this, lady? but after a while the deception sets in and it’s like “ok, I can roll with this.” Summer vegetables that have been roasted to the point of sweetness help out with that too.

I know the feta isn’t paleo and I don’t care. Leave it off if you want to go 100%, but pizza ain’t pizza without some cheese.

Bacon would also be legit on this for a salty substitute if you want to play by the rules.

Just sayin’.

I want to hear more about your crossfit endeavors, Gina! Glad you're enjoying it so far :) This crust sounds good! Fun experimenting with alternative crusts. Have you tried the cauliflower one yet?

I haven't, but I definitely want to! I always pass cauliflower up for some reason in the store, I need to remember to buy it for that!

I'm glad you opted to add "The term “pizza” shall be used lightly here." So true. But it looks interesting ... for a healthy pizza ;)

This pizza looks amazing!! I really need to try paleo pizza crust again. My first time was a complete flop! Thanks for the plugin suggestion on IG. Unfortunately it didn't work for me :( I'm trying to get my blog to look exactly the same on a mobile device as it does on a computer. I tested yours out and it seems to work perfectly, everything is just scaled down to fit a smaller screen. With mine, all of my pictures get cut off and my tabs on the top of my home page become two lines instead of one. SO frustrating but I will figure it out!! Hope you had a great day!

Ohhh, gotcha. My theme is the thing that makes it display like normal on a phone. I use Thesis and while it's not free, it was definitely the best $ I spent on this blog. It's so customizable and has so many built in things for you (like mobile compatibility, SEO stuff, etc.) that you don't have to worry about. Hope you get it to work!
