Sliced Pizza

Holy Grail: Almond Bun Pizza

Pizza is a mainstay for people on the SAD (Standard American Diet).  Its fast, tasty, and horribly bad for you. Luckily, I’ve found a way to use the almond buns to create a perfect pizza crust.  I’ve made pizza like objects like the meatza in the past but its not the same as an actual slice. One time I even made pizza using almond buns but it was not quite family size. This time, I was able to reproduce an actual, full size pizza using almond buns.

Almond Bun Pizza SliceThe finished product looked just like a pizza slice!  I decided to make this one just cheese but obviously you could add any toppings you like.

Almond Bun Dry IngredientsThe first step is to make the crust. The recipe is the same as for the original almond buns except I have added oregano, thyme and garlic to flavor the crust.

Liquid Pizza BatterThe liquid batter should look like this.  Make sure that the eggs are warm and the butter is hot when you mix it.  You want the batter to be easy to spread.

Pizza Pan Start with a well greased 12″ pizza pan and preheat the oven to 350.

Pizza batter in panHere is the pizza crust in the pan.  If you use a larger pan than 12″, make sure to increase the recipe size.

Cooked CrustPrecook the crust until it starts to brown on the edges.  This should be around 7 minutes but since it is so thin, you could watch it after 5 minutes.

Pizza with sauceNext apply the pizza sauce.  I decided to make a white pizza and used Alfredo sauce. Pizza with cheeseNow add the cheese.

More CheeseAnd more cheese.

Cooked PizzaBroil the pizza for 2-3 minutes or until the cheese starts to bubble.

Sliced PizzaAnd there you have it! Cut up the pizza with a nonstick pizza wheel and you’re good to go.
