This rustic AIP Pizzette is very easy to put together for an easy lunch or dinner! A pizzette is a savory galette made with classic pizza toppings. This version has an AIP- and Paleo-friendly “nomato” sauce, crispy smoky bacon, and fresh basil. It’s delicious, quick, and easy to make!
AIP galette dough
A galette is a traditional French pastry that has a rustic free-form shape instead of being baked in a pie dish. It is typically topped with fruit or berries before being baked, but it can also be served savory, like this pizza galette.
Traditionally, galette dough is made with wheat flour, but I think you’ll love my gluten-free galette dough! It’s made with cassava flour, tigernut flour, and tapioca starch. Since this is a savory galette, I add garlic powder, onion powder, and sea salt. The three flours mixed together help make a great light, flaky dough in place of wheat flour. These flours contain a lot of fiber and resistant starch, which help reduce inflammation in the gut, keep our digestive system healthy, and are beneficial for the “good” bacteria in our gut.
For the wet ingredients, I use olive oil and water to help make a smooth dough that is easy to work with. The olive oil gives this dough a savory Italian-style flavor and helps make it light and flaky when baked. Olive oil is loaded with healthy monounsaturated fats and antioxidants, making it a great heart-healthy choice.
To make this galette dough, you’ll mix all the dry ingredients together, then add the olive oil and water and stir with a fork until you get a shaggy rough dough. Then use your hands to combine it all together and make a smooth dough ball.
You can roll out the dough into one large galette or two smaller galettes. Once the dough is rolled out so that it is about ¼-inch thick, use your hands to fold the edges over and press down gently.
Pre-bake the dough for a few minutes, then add the toppings and finish baking!
AIP pizzette toppings
This pizza galette is loaded with simple and delicious toppings: an easy no-mato sauce, crispy fried bacon, and fresh basil leaves. I love galettes because the folded over dough means I can pile on the sauce and toppings without them spilling over.
The nomato sauce is made by cooking together carrots, beets, onion, and a few seasonings, then pureeing it together into a sauce that resembles tomato sauce in texture, feel, and savory flavor without any of the nightshade ingredients. This sauce is loaded with nutrients and vitamins from all the veggies: vitamins A, C, fiber, and potassium. All these nutrients help support a healthy immune system, a healthy digestive system, and healthy blood pressure.
I recommend making the sauce in advance and keeping it in the fridge until ready to use. The recipe below makes enough nomato sauce for several batches of this pizzette, or it can be used for other dinner ideas!
Make sure to cook the bacon before adding it to the pizzette because the pizzette does not cook long enough to cook the bacon.
I like to add half the basil leaves to the pizzette before baking so that their flavor combines with the sauce, and then garnishing with the rest of the fresh basil leaves after to enjoy the pizzette with fresh basil on top.
