Paleo Pizza Deconstructed

(this tasty recipe first appeared on another website on March 17)
The only reason I didn't put this into a real recipe for extra points is that I thought it would get rejected. It is a real recipe (OK, parts of it.) Thanks to another poster for the suggestion.

Paleo Pizza Deconstructed

They do it on TOP CHEF, why not in your kitchen? It is easy to deconstruct your favorite foods and remake them the way nature intended!!!


1 large whole red ripe tomato (3"diam), thinly sliced
1 Jalapeno pepper, diced
.25 cup chopped scallions
.5 cup sliced fresh mushrooms
5 jumbo black olives
.125 t oregano powder
10 basil leaves
2 pork sausage links (4 x 7/8 inch)
.5 cup fresh bell pepper strips

You will also need 1/4 cup whole wheat berries for this party dish.


Wash the wheat berries, soak them in cool water for several hours, spread them on a tray with potting soil. After a few days, they will sprout and you can feed the grass to your cat.

You won't be eating any of the wheat yourself.

For the actual pizza you can eat, cut up the sausage and fry in a pan until cooked. Add the peppers, scallions, mushrooms, olives and oregano, stir and turn off the heat.
Let the mixture cool a couple of minutes. Arrange artfully on a round plate with basil leaves and sliced tomato. You can eat it in sections or just dig in and eat the whole pizza all by yourself.

This should be filed under: beef and pork, dinner, Italian, low carb, Paleo, Party, 4 days prep time for the kitty grass, 10 minutes prep time for the part you will eat, 5 minutes cooking time, 5 minutes plating. (You can also save on clean up time if you let your cat lick the plate. After your cat gets rid of the fur ball, he'll be hungry enough for it, even with all that oregano.)
