VEGETABLE AND BACON PALEO PIZZA
Pizza Base Ingredients:
To make the pizza base or bases, preheat oven to 1800C and line 2 baking trays with baking paper. I use 2 round 12” pizza trays with holes in the bottom.
Sift dry ingredients together into a bowl. In a separate bowl whisk together the eggs, oil and nut milk.
Fold the egg mixture into the dry ingredients a bit at a time and mix thoroughly to form a smooth, thick dough.
Spoon ½ the dough onto each of the baking trays. Using a spatula spread the dough out in a round shape to a thickness of 5mm. You can make the pizza bases as big or as small as you like, just adjust the amount of dough you use for each size.
Bake for 5 – 10 mins until the pizza base is cooked through and lightly browned.
Remove from oven and set aside while preparing the toppings.
Increase the oven to 220 oC.
Pizza Sauce Ingredients:
Combine all ingredients in a food processor and blend until smooth.
Suggested toppings: sliced zucchinis, sliced mushrooms, chopped capsicum, chopped bacon, chopped onion, pitted olives.
Cashew cheese, parmesan cashew cheese or nutritional yeast seasoning
Salt and pepper
Putting it all together:
Spread pizza sauce over bases, scatter over vegetables and bacon in order of list above ending with olives. Dollop the cashew cheese on top, then sprinkle with parmesan cashew cheese or nutritional yeast, season with salt and pepper.
Return to the oven and cook for a further 10-20 mins or until golden and crisp.

As a society we are becoming increasingly invested in our optimal health and longevity. Many people are conscious of the infinite benefits that holistic remedies and natural therapies provide, however, it is still prevalent that modalities such as these are grossly misunderstood. As a Remedial Massage Therapist (RMT) I would like to offer clarity and give insight into this particular style of treatment.
Remedial Massage Therapy can be described as the assessment and treatment of soft tissue dysfunctions that cause pain and restrict the body’s natural movement patterns.
It differs from other styles of massage (e.g. Relaxation and Reflexology) as the client undergoes a detailed investigation into their current health status. The RMT performs and records observations, palpation, motion testing and a range of other physical testing procedures, to determine how to best move forward with the treatment.
As mentioned earlier the benefits of Massage are endless. These include increased range of motion and flexibility, helps to relieve muscle tension and stiffness, reduces involuntary muscle spasms, enhances athletic performance, improves circulation of blood and lymph fluids, helps reduce blood pressure, facilitates the body’s natural healing process, reduces pain and swelling, and can help lessen the affects of anxiety and mental fatigue.
I hope to see you in store, to find out how massage therapy can help you.
Look out for my next article, where I will delve into common conditions of the shoulder and how to facilitate healing.
