The star of this Fruity Breakfast Pizza with Granola Crust is Paleo Scavenger granola! I “met” Brittany of Paleo Scavenger on Instagram and my interested was piqued: I’ve made my own Paleo granola and while the results are utterly delicious, there’s nothing like the convenience of spooning it from bag to bowl and enjoying in minutes!
I reached out to the Paleo Scavenger co-founders Brittany Chibe and DeeDee McCoy for a bit more info on their company and product, and their story is one that many of you might have personally experienced: when they “went paleo” they struggled to find paleo-friendly snacks that they liked. The two often found themselves making their own snacks and carrying them around in their bags. With encouragement from family and friends, Brittany and DeeDee began selling paleo granola at local farmers markets and doing “pop-up shops” at gyms and race events. Everywhere they go, people love their granola and encourage them to keep going. As I can personally attest, their granola is eat-from-the-bag good, and I barely left myself enough to make this Fruity Breakfast Pizza because of my constant snacking.
Paleo Scavenger is made with simple and clean ingredients, healthy fats and sustainable protein (a reflection of what the Paleo nutritional approach encourages as a whole). The Paleo Scavenger gals have three flavors of granola: original, cherry and pumpkin spice, and are working on more seasonal flavors.
When I asked about plans for expansion, DeeDee and Brittany were excited to tell me their plans of moving into a commercial kitchen this week and the launch of their website PaleoScavenger.com TODAY! In addition to online ordering, they soon hope to share the retailers that will be carrying Paleo Scavenger products. They’re also spending lots of time in the kitchen creating more snacks to add to our mix like paleo cookies and bars, which sounds like delicious fun. You can follow their adventures on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
