Requesting Real Recipes?

by HEAB on March 24, 2011

Homemade pizza has always intimidated me as I’ve had several crust mishaps in my past. However, after discovering socca crust, I realized that homemade pizza does not have to be complicated. I tried a new crust recipe for lunch today. It was easy. I’m no longer intimidated.


Recipe adapted from The Real Food Diet Cookbook.


1 cup brown rice flour (I used Bob’s Red Mill, but you can easily make your own)

1/2 cup water

1/2 tsp sea salt

1 gram Steviva stevia

1 TBSP butter, melted

1 egg white


Pre-heat oven to 425℉. Mix all ingredients together and press into an 8 x 8 greased glass baking dish. Bake for 10 minutes.


Now comes the fun part, the toppings!

For pizza sauce, stir together the following:

1/2 6 ounce can tomato paste (1/4 heaping cup)

1 gram pure stevia or 1 packet of stevia

1 TBSP Italian seasonings

water to thin

Pizza Assembly:

I browned 1/4 lb. grass fed beef with 1/2 green bell pepper, 1/4 onion, and a few mushrooms. I then spread the sauce on my pizza, added the beef + veggie mixture, and baked in a 350℉ for 15 minutes. Once the pizza was done, I drizzled 2 slices with Heather’s sunflower seed butter cheeze sauce.


Today’s pizza did not take long to make and was quite tasty. I am loving all the ideas from this cookbook!

Remember these salmon cakes?


The recipe was adapted from The Real Food Diet Cookbook as well.

If so, please leave a comment below telling me about your favorite pizza restaurant, and I’ll choose one random winner. I’ll go first. My favorite pizza restaurant was Davinci’s Gourmet Pizza here in Nashville, but it recently closed. So, I’ve decided my new favorite is Bella Napoli Pizzeria. Love their pesto veggie!
