Okay, now for the food!
Vital Stats: Grain free, gluten free
Okay, so this is what you need:
Approx 1 1/2 cups finely ground almond meal
2 eggs, beaten
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
2 tablespoons nutritional yeast flakes
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
1/2 teaspoon dried basil
2 garlic cloves, crushed
1/4 teaspoon sea salt
1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
2 tablespoons tomato paste
105g oven-roasted tomatoes (we substituted fresh pineapple chunks)
2/3 cup grated full fat cheddar or goat’s cheese
1/2 cup chopped ham (no nitrates or additives)
sprinkling of dulse flakes (optional)
Okay, so this is how you do it:
Preheat the oven to 220°C and lightly grease a pizza pan or large baking tray. For the pizza base, put 1 1/2 cups of almond meal in a large mixing bowl, add all the other ingredients and mix until you have loose dough. If it feels wet, add a bit more almond meal and work with your hands until smooth.
Shape into a ball. Cut the dough in half and roll each portion out into a thin circle of about 15 cm, working from the inside out in a clockwise motion. Add more almond meal if it becomes too sticky. Place the two bases side by side on the prepared baking tray and place in the oven for 10 minutes.
Remove from the oven and spread with tomato paste, leaving a 1 cm border of dough uncovered. Scatter the cheese, ham and tomatoes (or pineapple), over the top, and sprinkle dulse flakes. Return the pizzas to the oven for another 7-10 minutes, or until glistening and crispy.
My tips: I made the base in the thermomix – just grind your almonds first, add the other ingredients and mix on reverse for a few seconds to combine it all.
Both my kids loved this pizza recipe (actually we all did). What I like most is that it really fills you up – you only can eat one or two pieces at a time! The base is so tasty and I think it would work well on it’s own with a drizzle of olive oil to serve with soup. Make up extra bases while you are there and freeze them, uncooked. You may never order another takeaway pizza again!

Kirsten McCulloch says
Yum, that sounds delicious, I will definitely have to try it. I make pizza quite a lot, using a crescent roll dough with two eggs, plus I usually add chia seeds – so not gluten free but relatively like ‘normal’ pizza, while being higher in protein & a little more filling. I’ll be interested to see if the kids will eat the almond meal base. It’s sounds great, though of course, I won’t be able to send left overs to school (nuts), so either way I’ll have to keep cooking my regular one too.
For Karate, my son needs to eat supercharged Kung Foooooooooood!

I need superfood to keep up with him 😉

We’ve had one week of warm weather and my four year old daughters legs are covered in bruises and scratches. The child doesn’t sit still. Climbing everything possible. She’s been on the garage roof and fell out of a tree yesterday. Sigh! I almost wish she didn’t have so much energy! 😉

My kids (7 and 4) bodies need supercharging to make sure they don’t develop my autoimmune disease later in life. Given the right nutrition, I am hoping they won’t experience it the way I have. They’re so sad to be missing out on the food their friends get to eat (no matter how bad I think it is), so to be able to cook something up for them to rival that of their mates would be awesome!! 🙂
What activities does my son need to be supercharged for? Aside from everything and putting up with me? Going full speed into whatever he does!

Everyday we do a family run/bike ride to encourage us to see exercise as a fun bonding experience, it’s great and has really had an enormous positive effect on our family as well as the kids behavior, sleep and eating. It’s quite a hike so we definitely need some supercharged food 🙂
My son is 5 & is sports mad!!! Swimming, soccer, little rugby, taekwon do & kinda dance. He is not able to eat dairy or gluten so eating out can be tricky. Some meals ideas that make him feel he’s not missing out on what his friends eat would be fantastic 🙂
I have three boisterous boys who need energy for climbing trees, soccer, rugby and playing super heros.. I do explain regularly that to do all these energy packed things you need good fuel in the form of good food.. I struggle with one of them to eat protein he loves fruit and veggies but not happy with meat and fish.. The eldest loves meat and carbs but practically has a fit if a veggie is on his plate unless its a potato.. The youngest thankfully at the moment eats pretty much everything and anything including the cats biscuits if he can get his hands on them.. I would really appreciate the supercharged food book to try some new recipes and ideas to keep everyone happy! 🙂
