Happy National Pizza Day! I didn’t know that was even a thing until this morning, at which time I knew I had to participate. Pizza has been one of the few things I miss from my previous gluten filled life. I channeled my creativity for 30 minutes and came up with these tasty bite size treats!
For the Dough:
3/4 cup of almond flour
3/4 cup of white rice flour
2 eggs (and a yolk for sealing the edges)
2 TBSP of melted coconut oil
Salt and Pepper to taste
1/4 cup of Pizza Sauce of choice
1/4 cup of chopped Pepperoni
1/4 cup of chopped Green Onions
Cheese is optional. I did mine without and they still tasted great!
Mix all your dough ingredients together until you can form a ball. Dust a piece of parchment paper with some extra rice flour and roll the dough out. You can decide how thick you want your bites to be but I preferred thinner. Cut into small squares, mine were about 1-1.5 inches in length and width. Place the squares onto a parchment lined baking sheet. This recipe makes 18-20 bites. You should have 36-40 squares cut out of your dough.
Next place a small spoonful of sauce onto each square. I then added some chopped up pepperoni and green onion. Just a few pieces go a long way! Next, place the top layer of dough over the toppings. You will need to press around the edges with your fingers to help seal the bites. Don’t worry if some sauce gets pressed out.
The final step its to seal the edges with some egg yolk. I find using a brush the easiest way to do this. Paint the edges of your bites with the egg yolk. If you use too much you will be able to peel the excess egg off after cooking. Next, place them in the oven at 350 degrees for 8-10 minutes.
They taste amazing dipped in some extra sauce! I hope you enjoy National Pizza Day!
