It’s all about the marketing…

So I made this fantastic pizza with homemade crust for the family yesterday and the reviews were, well, less than stellar. I have to be honest, I was pretty bummed out because I tasted it and thought it was awesome. But, after talking to Scott about it, he made me realize, “It’s all about the marketing”. Ohhh. Makes sense. While I found this pizza really good, I was not comparing it to an Amy’s pizza, by far. I guess it has been quite some time since I’ve had the real thing, but still, it really was good!

So, he suggested I call it something different so expectations are set. We actually talked about this the first time I made the almond flour cookies and it was a good point, which we now call “mama cakes” by the way. So if needed, try to be creative with a new name and I think that can help. I will try it again though and bet the next time, they will like it. And, I’ll be sure not to do it three days after a birthday party with pizza!

There weren’t many olives left for the pizza. As you can see, we love olives and especially the Mt. Athenos from Whole Foods.

Here’s what you need for the Paleo pizza:

  • 2 cups almond meal
  • 2 eggs
  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • ¼ tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tbsp oregano
What to do:
Set oven to 350 degrees. Mix all of the ingredients together until it becomes very thick. The put a piece of parchment paper on a cookie sheet and spoon out the dough onto the paper. With your hands, make the crust as round and then as thin as possible (even thinner than you think).  I put some olive oil on my hands so it wouldn’t stick quite as much. Bake the crust for 20 minutes.  Add your favorite toppings and cook for another 25 minutes and enjoy your…well, whatever you want to call it.

We used extra pizza sauce for dipping as the crust does tend to soak it up.

C’mon! What’s not to love!?

By the way, today I worked on organizing the whole “Recipe” section in the menu bar.  I hope it’s easier to find what you need. If you have any other ideas on how to simplify, or what would work best, please feel free to let me know. Thanks for reading, as always!
