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 like a regular pizza or even garlic bread pizza offers 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’.

  1. 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 ;)

  2. 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!

    1. 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!

      1. Thank you!! I have actually been thinking of switching my theme over to Thesis. I did it a while back but then got a refund because I was so scared it would mess everything up! I am going to start looking into it again! :)

  3. Great job with Fran! Can’t wait to join a box! I’ve heard a lot of good things about going paleo but I love Chobani too much to even think about it. Maybe one day!

  4. I was just thinking about going paleo for 30 days. i even announced it. then killed it when I had an epiphany – I am a Chobaniac. I can’t go paleo. just received a beautiful big box of Cho. Thinking about the 80/20 + Paleo mix. think it’ll work? nice ‘pizza’. shall pin. speaking of. are you on Pinterest?

    1. I don’t do paleo full out either. Dairy is the main thing stopping me. An occasional greek yogurt and milk in my coffee are too important :) Eat what feels right to you.

  5. Yum! I love the combo of flavors you used, zucchini and tomatoes with basil – one of my favorite flavor combos, I just made a black rice dish last night featuring those! That crust looks so yummy and like a fun change of pace. I like thin, almost cracker-like crusts sometimes and other times I like a thick doughy pizza. I recently made this crust that is also grain-free but it is definitely a thicker, doughier crust. I am not sure if it is paleo since I don’t follow that, but it is good either way – https://realsustenance.com/grain-free-thick-crust-pizza-glutendairysoy-free/

  6. I just made pizza last night! I’ll definitely be giving your crust a try (my man eats paleo when I’m not tempting him out of it), so this might be a great compromise for us :)

  7. so yeah, i’m SOOOOOOO not the girl who’ll ever go paleo, but this still sounds delicious! and i’m with you – pizza ain’t pizza without some cheese!
