Deep Dish Pizza Bites

October 6, 2014
By Coach Maria – Salus Nutritionist & Food Expert
My absolute favorite food has to be pizza.
I’ve always loved making different varieties of pizza – whether it’s traditional pan pizza, pizza loaf, pizza pie, pizza nachos (uh…yes) or pizza muffins.
Unfortunately, the traditional, gluten-containing, cheese laden pizzas do not sit well with my digestion and leaves my gut feeling like I ate a 5-pound brick (not to mention what it can do to my waistline!).
Fortunately for me (and perhaps others that are trying to avoid gut-busting ingredients), I have clever little ways to satisfy my pizza cravings, without sabotaging my digestion or leaving me feeling bloated and uncomfortable.
Try these delectable mini deep dish pizza bites – you will love them!
serves 10
1 c tapioca flour
3 Tblsp coconut flour
3 Tblsp ground flax meal
1 egg
1/3 c coconut oil
1/3 c warm water
1 tsp baking powder
dash of sea salt
1/2 tsp minced garlic
1/2 tsp Italian seasoning
Choice of toppings:
My personal preferences:
Sugar free pizza sauce
Fresh mozzarella (omit if you do not consume dairy)* 
Fresh basil
Chorizo, prosciutto or a quality pepperoni*
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In a bowl, combine ingredients from tapioca flour to flax meal.
Add water and mix until combined
Add coconut oil and egg – mix well
Grease muffin tins and pour pizza batter half way up the tin
Bake 8-10 minutes (insert a toothpick – it should come out clean)
Remove from oven, add desired toppings and bake another 5 minutes.
* I get most of these products at Caputo’s Deli in Salt Lake.
