Paleo Grain-free Pizza Crust with Swiss Chard


This HEALTHY Paleo Pizza crust is inspired by The Roasted Root's Gluten-Free Spinach & Collard Greens Pizza Crust, while the toppings were inspired by theKitchn's Cherry Tomato, Corn, and Goat Cheese Pizza. The crust is loaded with flaxseed, almond meal, coconut flour and SWISS CHARD – seriously, a must try! The idea came about when I randomly decided to purchase a bundle of Swiss Chard at our local farmers market. Having absolutely no idea what I was going to do with it. I also had a huge quantity of tomatoes in my fridge, and was craving pizza, so I decided to see what I could find in the way of a healthy pizza crust recipe. I’ve done the cauliflower pizza crust several times (love it), so I figured if I could put cauliflower and eggplant into a pizza crust, why not the swiss chard I impulsively bought? Surely it would help disguise the bitter taste, right? I mean, lets be real, I didn’t buy it because I wanted it, or thought it’d taste good, I bought it because it’s healthy and good for me. And I must say, this little creation turned out pretty darn good!
