Ingredients to serve 4

  • almond flour
  • coconut flour
  • baking powder
  • garlic powder
  • salt (from your pantry)
  • grated mozzarella
  • butter (from your pantry)
  • egg – whisk (from your pantry)
  • cream cheese

Step 1

Preheat oven to 200◦C. Prepare all ingredients as indicated above. Remove 2 tsp of almond flour from the packaging and set aside.

Step 2

Melt the butter over low heat in a small saucepan. Set aside.

Step 3

Make the salad dressing in a mug by whisking red wine vinegar, olive oil, salt and pepper together. Set aside.

Step 4

Combine these ingredients in a bowl: almond flour (less 2 tsp you set aside earlier), coconut flour, baking powder, garlic powder and salt.

Step 5

In a saucepan, melt HALF the mozzarella cheese over medium to low heat. When you can stir the cheese, turn the heat down to low and add the butter, egg and stir well. Now add the flour mixture little by little and stir well until it’s all combined into a dough ball.

Step 6

Turn dough out onto some wax paper. Cover with another piece of wax paper and – using a wine (or similar) bottle – roll out into a circle about 3-5mm thick. Remove the top layer of wax paper. Turn about 1cm of the edge of the dough over to make a crust. Sprinkle a large baking tray with the 2 tsp of almond flour you set aside earlier. Remove the bottom layer of wax paper and lay the pizza base on the baking tray. Place in the oven and bake for about 8 minutes until lightly browned. Leave the oven on to bake the topping later.

Step 7

Chop the bacon. Place a dry frying pan on medium to high heat. When hot, add the bacon and cook until crisp – about 4 minutes.

Step 8

Top the pizza base by first spreading a layer of cream cheese on it. Then add the cheddar, the rest of the mozzarella, bacon and jalapeño peppers. Return to the oven and bake for about 10 to 12 minutes or so, until cheese is melted. Serve immediately.

Step 9

Place the salad leaves, red onion and cherry tomatoes in a bowl. Drizzle with salad dressing and toss to combine.

Step 10

To serve, slice the pizza and place on the plate. Add a serving of salad on the side.
