Okay, this isn’t true Paleo diet because it contains dairy, it is more of a Primal diet recipe but it IS supper tasty! In this Paleo skillet pizza recipe the cheese actually makes the crust. It is very good, but a little greasy depending on the type of cheese and the toppings you use.
You have to be careful not to load it up with too many toppings or you will not be able to pick it up to eat it, but there is nothing wrong with loading it up and then eating it with a knife and fork!
This Paleo skillet pizza recipe will make a 10″ pizza in a 10″ skillet and yeild 4 slices. If you want to make a bigger or smaller pizza just use a different size and adjust the amounts of ingredients you use. Really this is pretty much an “anything goes” type of recipe.
Paleo Skillet Pizza Recipe
2 cups shredded cheese (I used the 4 cheese Italian blend)
2-3 tbsp tomato paste or pizza sauce
Italian blend spices
pepperoni or hot sausage
Spread a layer of cheese evenly over the bottom of a 10″ non-stick skillet and place it on the stove on medium heat. Once the cheese melts and starts to bubble, spoon your tomato sauce on and gently smear over the top. Try not to mix it in with the cheese too much. Now sprinkle with your spices and top with toppings. Continue to cook until the bottom and edges of the cheese turn golden. This takes about 5-10 minutes.
Remove the pan from the heat and allow to cool. As it cools, use a spatula to gently fold over the edges a bit to look like a pizza crust. Allow to cool for 10-15 minutes until the cheese solidifies enough to allow you to remove it from the pan. Place it on a plate and cut into 4 slices. Serve with a nice big green salad.
