Paleo Flatbread

Garlic & Rosemary Paleo Flatbread

I'm seriously obsessed with this recipe!  I made it for the first time last week and have made it 4 times since!  It's so versatile.  Below is the recipe for the garlic and rosemary flatbread but I've also been using it as pizza crust. I even made a flatbread with peaches, tomato and pesto YUM!

1 Cup Tapioca Flour
1/4  Cup Coconut Flour
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 Cup Coconut Milk
1/4 Cup Coconut Oil
1 Egg beaten
1 tsp Chopped Rosemary
2 tsp fresh garlic
olive oil and sea salt for garnish

  1. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees.  Place a pizza stone, cast iron skillet or baking sheet in the oven while it preheats to heat up.  This is the key to super crispy bread on the outside!
  2. In a small bowl combine coconut milk and coconut oil and heat for 45 seconds in the microwave.  The mixture should be warm but not boiling
  3. Combine tapioca flour, coconut flour and salt in a large bowl
  4. Pour the coconut milk mixture on top
  5. Mix until throughly combined.  Allow to sit for a couple of minutes to cool and for the coconut flour to absorb
  6. Add beaten egg and mix again until fully combined
  7. The mixture will be more like the consistency of cake batter than a dough- this is correct!
  8. Carefully cover the heated pan with parchment paper or spray with olive oil
  9. Pour the batter into the center and using a spatula, spread the mixture evenly until it is about 1/4 inch thick
  10. Sprinkle on rosemary and garlic
  11. Bake for 12 minutes
  12. Top with olive oil and salt

 Yeast can be tricky.  I’ve messed up countless doughs, batters, etc. because the “warm” water was either too hot or too cold.  It’s like Goldie Locks – the water has to be JUST RIGHT. 

For those of you without a kitchen thermometer, or simply the patience for the perfect Goldie Locks water, I came up with a yeast-free pizza dough recipe.

 

Paleo Pizza Dough

 1 cup Almond Meal

½ cup Potato Starch

½ cup Arrowroot Flour

2 ½ tbsp. olive oil

1 egg

1/3 cup water

1 tsp salt

 

  1. Combine the flours and salt in a mixing bowl
  2. Add the egg, olive, oil and water to the flour mixture
  3. Mix with a spoon or your hands to combine into a dough
  4. Press the dough into and 8 inch circle
  5. Bake for 6 minutes
  6. Add toppings
  7. Return the pizza to the oven for a couple minutes

Paleo Pizza Dough with Yeast

I was recently on vacation and after being introduced to a game called One Night Werewolf, became totally and utterly OBSESSED.  Sounds weird but try it and then I guarantee, you’ll be an obsessed weirdo too. 

Anyway, if you’re wondering why I’m telling you about my newfound obsession, it’s because I decided to host a game night.  My motives were purely selfish, I needed to play again, I needed to get my fix! 

Inviting people to game night is admittedly a little weird, so I figured what better way to lure them in than by offering food.  So dinner and game night; it was settled.   

In crafting my dinner party menu, I knew I wanted food that would permit no game interruptions.  I needed food that we could pick up and eat with our hands.  PIZZA.  Perfect!

 

Paleo Pizza Dough (with yeast)

2 ½ tsp active dry yeast

¼ cup warm water

2 ½ tbsp. olive oil

1 egg

1 cup almond flour

1 cup arrowroot flour

¾ cup coconut flour

½ tsp salt

 

  1. In the bowl of a stand mixer or mixing bowl (if using a handheld mixer), combine the yeast and warm water
  2. Whisk together for 3-5 minutes.  Yeast will be foamy and bubble at the top.
  3. Add the olive oil and egg.
  4. Using the paddle attachment, mix on medium speed for 30 seconds
  5. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flours and salt
  6. Slowly add the flour mixture into the liquids and mix on low until ingredients are starting to combine.  Turn the speed to medium high and beat for one minute, until dough starts to form
  7. Grease a medium bowl with olive oil and place the dough into the bowl
  8. Cover with seran wrap and let rest for 10-15 minutes
  9. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees
  10. Roll the dough out in between two pieces of parchment paper
  11. Place on a parchment lined baking sheet
  12. Bake for 6 minutes
  13. Remove the crust from the oven and add desired toppings
  14. Return to the oven and bake for another 2 minutes or until toppings are hot, melted, etc.
