Marinara Sauce (or use store-bought marinara)
  • 5 medium tomatoes, cored and coarsely chopped
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • ¼ cup onion, finely chopped
  • 1 teaspoon oregano
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 tablespoons fresh parsley, chopped

  • tomato, chopped
  • olives, diced

  1. Combine tomato, minced garlic, and onion in a saucepan. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low and continue to cook for 30 minutes, uncovered, stirring frequently.
  2. Add oregano, salt, black pepper, fresh parsley, bay leaf, and red wine. Continue to cook, stirring often for 30 minutes.
  3. Remove bay leaf, and set aside.
  1. Preheat oven to 375F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Whisk together almond flour, flax seed meal, baking powder, onion powder, garlic powder, pepper, salt and cayenne in a bowl. Pour in olive oil and crack in egg. Mix with hands until well incorporated.
  3. In a small bowl, mix water and honey together. Pour into almond flour mixture, and mix until combined. Allow to sit for 10 minutes.
  4. Place dough on prepared baking sheet and flatten with hands into the shape of a small-medium size pizza. Bake in the oven for 15 minutes.
  5. Remove from oven. Loosen crust from parchment paper using a spatula.
  6. Top with marinara sauce and cheese (if using). Evenly distribute sauteed onion, sauteed shallots, sauteed garlic slices, chopped tomatoes, diced olives, bell pepper slices and basil over the top. Sprinkle with salt.
  7. Bake in the oven for 15 more minutes, or until cheese is melted and veggies are cooked. Remove from the oven. Transfer pizza to a serving plate (2 spatulas work well for this), cut, and serve. You can also add more fresh basil to the pizza.
