A few nights ago, my hubby picked up one of those amazing Chicago deep dish pizzas for dinner. I’d be lying if I said I didn’t feel jealous. Lord knows, even one bite would have sent me into a serious health crisis. I mean, gluten, dairy, and nightshades are basically what make up this amazing pizza pie. That would not have worked for me at all. So, I went to the kitchen, and cooked up my own amazing pizza pie, Bacon Spinach AIPizza with Arugula Pesto.
So, this week’s recipes are the result of me watching my hubby dig into yet another pizza pie, whilst I sit glaring at him from across the table. It was time for me to head to the kitchen to create a delicious AIP pizza crust and sauce. I tinkered and tested until I came out with this tasty AIP version, AIPizza Crust and Instant Pot Tomato-less Sauce! Now, I could enjoy a healthy pizza with my hubby, who actually named it AIPizza! I think you’re going to love it too.
Now, I have a few tips for you, before you begin to make AIPizza Crust and Instant Pot Tomato-less Sauce. First, make sure your plantains are really green. If they’re even a little ripe, your crust will taste too sweet. Second, if you don’t have an Instant Pot, I’ve added the recipe to make the sauce in a saucepan; so, you’re covered. I will tell you that the sauce will come out a little thinner. Third, you’re going to want to put some AIP cheese on your pizza. You can get the recipe for Hayley’s Zucchini Cheese here.

We all love posting our zucchini cheese creations.
It’s go time y’all! You can add whatever AIP compliant or Reintroduction Phase toppings you want to your AIPizza. Have fun!
For those of you that have not bought an Instant Pot yet, let me tell you, this pot is magical! I use mine almost every day. I also cook, on average three dishes or ingredients on the days I use it. You can sauté, pressure cook, slow cook, steam, make rice, yogurt, and so on, in it. I can’t say enough wonderful things about it. I love my Instant Pot!
I hope y’all enjoy your AIPizza Crust and Instant Pot Tomato-less Sauce! Who says you can’t have pizza on the AIP?
