Cuban Sandwiches & Pizza

I'm a sucker for a Cuban Sandwich - in fact, it might be one of my favorite sandwiches to order. When we transitioned to Paleo almost four years ago - we'd make a mock sandwich using a grain-free bun and a slice of swiss to curb our cravings, but it rare we could ever order a gluten-free Cuban when dining out. Pork chops aren't my favorite and rather than be un-interested in our meals I came up with creation instead. 

 You'll need the following toppings:

  • Roasted pork
  • Ham
  • Swiss
  • Pickles
  • Mustard


We followed a Keto Pizza Crust Recipe from

Our modifications to crust recipe: we omitted the thyme and sea salt from the crust. The option to remove the sea salt was based on the salt content from the pork and ham - we aren't huge salt eaters and tend to be highly sensitive to overly salted foods. We omitted thyme because we didn't have any for starters and two didn't feel the crusted needed it.

At the original time of creating this pizza, we were a gluten-free paleo low carb family. We have since abandoned our gluten free paleo low carb eating ways and this pizza could be recreated with cauliflower crust, traditional pizza crust, a naan, or flatbread.

I also need to mention if you have yet to see the movie Chef and you are a foodie, you need to watch it. Chef inspired our original Cuban Sandwich night which then led to the pizza recreation.
