What is more comforting than relaxing on a Friday after a long day of work or school and munching on a nice warm slice of pizza pie? This pizza recipe is EXTREMELY nutrient dense, paleo, and dairy-free! Because of my autoimmune disease, I stay away from inflammatory foods such as dairy and grains. It had been a hot minute since I’d eaten pizza because of these reasons. After many attempts, I finally put together a great tasting pizza that will have you feeling completely guilt-free! They look chiquitos, small, but they sure mean business. I tested this recipe on people who could eat an entire standard medium pizza, and they were full with one personal Paleo pizza! Bring on that appetite y’all!
