Paleo Pizza

By MarvinJanuary 4, 2018

Yummy, yummy pizza! Who doesn’t love it? In all variations,  it’s one of America’s favorite foods. Normally we would suggest eating pizza as a post-workout meal. Za’ contains a lot of carbohydrates from the wheat in the dough, fats from cheese, and vitamins and minerals from the veggies on top. All of those nutritional factors make our cheesy indulgence an ideal snack to eat after working up a sweat. Unfortunately, when something sounds too good to be true, it usually is. Many of us eat pizza too often, and not as a post-workout meal after a heavy lifting day. That means our bodies aren’t running a sugar deficit and don’t need an abundance of carbohydrates. Furthermore, the gluten in the wheat can cause inflammation and digestive problems. To top it off, most of the time the vegetables on top of your slice aren’t the freshest.

So what should we do about this dilemma? Pimp it up as usual and make it paleo! Let’s add eggs and tuna for extra protein and cut most of the carbohydrates out. That way, you can have it anytime, anywhere and most important: without a guilty conscience. Isn’t that freaking outstanding? Let’s get to it.


  • 6 cans of tuna 
  • 3 eggs
  • 5 oz grated cheese
  • 7 oz sieved tomatoes 
  • fresh vegetables like cherry tomatoes, red pepper, corn, carrots
  • spices: basil, oregano, black pepper, sea salt


  1. Preheat the oven to 450 F. Put tuna and eggs in a big bowl and mix them together.
  2. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Squeeze the egg tuna mix a little bit (not completely, it shouldn’t be too dry) and flatten it out on the baking sheet.
  3. Bake dough 12-15 minutes in the oven. Chop the vegetables and mix the sieved tomatoes with the spices in a little bowl for the tomato sauce
  4. Take the pizza dough out of the oven and spoon on tomato sauce, cheese and hard veggies like carrots or zucchini on top. If you used red pepper, add it right before you eat the pizza
  5. Put the pizza back in the oven for 10 minutes. Allow to cool for 5-10 minutes before you cut it into slices (then add the red pepper). 
  6. Add a loooooot of love and enjoy :).
