I have to admit I was not convinced when I was offered to have this prepared for me. I trust The Naked Chef but when I am craving pizza I want pizza and that usually means I surrender in hypocrisy and betrayal of my nutritional beliefs to the temptation of that magical Italian dough devil. Hesitantly, I took a back seat in the kitchen and tried to conceal my doubts of how “paleo” and “pizza” could possibly co-exist successfully.
Well I’ll be darned.
A beautiful, simple little recipe that satisfies what you crave in a pizza, without the “health hangover” of refined flour and rancid oils – it is nutritionally hard to fault. The Naked Chef is welcome to come paleo-fy whatever his heart desires in my kitchen from now on!
What you need:
- 8 eggs
- Italian herbs
- Coconut oil
- 1 tomato, thinly sliced
- Organic Italian tomato sauce
- Best quality Salami or Sopressa
- Shaved pecorino or your favourite pizza cheese
- Salt and pepper
- Fresh rocket and basil
- Half Small red onion, sliced thinly
What you do:
Whisk eggs, salt, pepper and Italian herbs in a bowl for 2 minutes and heat oil in pan until hot.
Pour eggs into hot pan and start to lay half of cheese onto “base”. Cook 3 minutes. Take off heat and put under overhead grill until nearly cooked through. Remove from heat, arrange sauce, salami, reminding cheese and onion on top and return to grill for 1 minute.
Garnish with rocket, basil and black pepper.
