  • 3/4 cup + 1 tbsp almond flour (80 g/ 2.8 oz)
Pizza topping:
  • 2 small chicken breasts (300 g/ 10.6 oz)
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt
  • pinch of black pepper
  • 1 tsp ghee, duck fat or olive oil

  • 2 balls of mozzarella, sliced (250 g/ 8.8 oz)
  • 2 tbsp pesto (30 g/ 1.1 oz) - you can make your own pesto!
  • 5 pieces sun-dried tomatoes, chopped (15 g/ 0.5 oz)
  • 1/2 cup fresh rocket (5 g/ 0.2 oz)

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 200 °C/ 400 °F (fan assisted), or 220 °C/ 425 °F (conventional). Place the grated mozzarella cheese into a bowl and add the cream cheese. Microwave on high for 1 minute.

  3. Place the dough on a heatproof baking mat and use your hands to flatten until about 1/2 - 1 cm (1/4 - 1/2 inch) thick. Alternatively, you can use a piece of parchment paper on top and roll the dough out. If the dough is sticky, use a bit of olive oil for greasing to dampen your hands when flattening the dough.

  4. Gently prick the dough with a fork and bake in the oven for 10 minutes until golden.

  5. Meanwhile, prepare the topping. Season the chicken with a little olive oil, salt and pepper. Grease a griddle pan (or a regular pan) to prevent sticking. Preheat on a medium heat and char-grill the chicken for 4 - 5 minutes each side until cooked through. Remove from the heat and allow to rest before slicing.
