SCD Pizza ~ John's Recipe #2

Tonight I decided to branch out and try a new recipe for Gabe. He seems to be getting tired of eating plain meats now. We figured we wouldn't try too many new foods until we got his yeast under control better, but I can't blame him for getting sick of pork chops, steaks, and chicken breasts. lol

Here is the pizza recipe we tried and a picture of how it turned out. The picture is only half of the original pizza as Gabe was already busy eating it. haha He ate the whole pizza in one sitting, so I think next time I will double the ingredients and have some left-overs for another meal.

-1/2 cup almond flour
- 1 tsp salt
- 1 tsp extra virgin olive oil

- 1 egg
- italian spices (oregano, basil, pepper, garlic, onion, etc.) 

Mix all ingredients together and add more flour to mix until mixture forms a dough ball.  Grease pizza pan with olive oil and spread dough out in pan. Don't worry if the pizza doesn't fill the whole pan. Preheat oven to 350 and throw pizza in while the oven is preheating. This will set up the crust and once the oven has pre-heated the crust should be golden brown and ready for the toppings to be added.
Add toppings and bake at 350 for 10 minutes.

**We used homemade pizza sauce (tomato paste, water, italian spices & salt) and I fried up some hamburger meat. We don't use any dairy products yet, but they do recommend Havarti cheese on top if you want or fresh veggies. Gabe loved it, we hope you will too!  :)

Here's a picture....


  1. Have you spoken with Dr. H about adding the dairy products? We are still not yet doing SCD but when we last spoke with Dr. H about doing SCD, she thought it was best not to include even the SCD allowable dairy products. Also, I noticed in the copy of Breaking the Vicious Cycle that I got from the library, there is a note to parents of children with autism about being cautious in adding dairy. I'm not trying to pry, I just didn't know if you are aware that even though SCD does allow dairy that it's not always recommended when a child with autism is on it.

  2. Thanks for sharing this recipe it's definitely a really good reward for my brother who got his Food Handler Certification last week. But still work on the dough first. I'm not really the cook-type but I'd like to do something special for him.
