Pizza Balls with Marinara

2 tsp basil

1 tsp garlic salt

1 tsp onion salt

1 tsp oregano

1 tsp parsley

1 tsp rosemary

(I use herbs fresh from my garden and use the ninja to blend all of the ingredients together, so they get broken down quite well.  You can also use dried spices)

1/4 tsp baking soda

1/4 c coconut flour

1 Tbsp nutritional yeast

1 tsp sea salt

1/4 c tapioca starch

1 Tbsp gelatin

1/4 cup gluten free flour, (or cassava flour for paleo, AIP dieters)

Place all of the ingredients into a food processor or Ninja bowl. Process/pulverize until pieces are small and combined well.


1 egg (or 1 mashed plantain (looks like a banana) for paleo, AIP dieters)

2 Tbsp olive oil


Combine until well blended.  Roll into golf ball sized balls. (You can also roll out and use this to make mini pizzas) Place on cookie sheet in a 350 oven.  Bake 10-15 minutes.  Serve with your favorite sweetener free healthy spaghetti sauce.  Feel free to make your own or use mine:

6 tomatoes, skinned (remove this ingredient for AIP)

4 stalks of celery

5 leaes fresh basil

1 beet, diced small

4 carrots, diced small

2 cloves garlic

1 tbsp chopped fresh oregano

1 tbsp chopped fresh parsley

1 tsp sea salt

2 Tbsp olive oil

1 cup water

1/4 cup chopped kalamata olives


In the olive oil, sauted the onion, olives, garlic, beet, carrot and celery until tender.  Add the basil, oregano, parsley, sea salt, optional tomatoes, and water.   Low simmer.  The longer the better, at least 40 minutes. I prefer to transfer mine to a crockpot and simmer on low all day.  The veggies break down the longer the cooking, but you can also puree them in a ninja blender as well.   * remember, for AIP you do not use the tomatoes.
