I know you can't eat this all the time but if you really miss bread and pizza this recipe here is as close as it gets to the real thing...

"The real thing" as in a lot like bread, perhaps.  "The real thing as in paleo", no, not with starchy flours even if they aren't grain based.

General rule of thumb:  any food with "paleo" in its name isn't paleo.

Warren Drew - would you say foods that are trying to be cakes/pizza/cookies arn't real paleo? I see so many recipes where people want to recreate carb loaded processed food with paleo ingredients. I haven't read the book yet, so not to sure where I stand with this sort of thing.

The best way to really embrace paleo is to change one's food culture completely.  Instead of starchy main dishes like pasta, or starchy side dishes like potato, get used to eating nice, fatty meat and green vegetables.  If you're still hungry, reach for another piece of meat, or if it's a roast, eat a piece of the cracklings - the crispy fat on the outside of a roast.  Instead of ice cream or cake for dessert, have some strawberries or nuts at the end of the meal.  Get used to meat or eggs for breakfast instead of muffins or cereal.

Once one has made that adjustment - and I admit it took a few months for me to complete it - one no longer thinks of baked goods and such as food at all.  This makes it much easier to avoid standard nonpaleo fare like regular pizza, since one no longer considers eating the crust any more than one would consider eating the cardboard pizza box.

Attempting to recreate nonpaleo baked goods with paleo ingredients - even when the ingredients are paleo, which isn't really true of this recipe - makes that adjustment more difficult and increases the risk of binging on nonpaleo food and then falling off of paleo entirely.

For us, we only bake stuff with paleo ingredients for the kids' birthday parties, where their friends will be expecting cake.
