Ora at 17b Whilster St, Manly is a café doing great things in the traditional wholefoods scene. From bone broths, to pastured slow cooked meats, to pate, to fermented foods, to clean treats, this seems like the place to eat when not eating at home. Open 7am – 4pm.
Bondi Wholefoods organic café and groceries (who I blogged about when they first opened here) is about to open a second (much larger) store at 517-527 Elizabeth Street, Surry hills. Stayed tuned!

Who doesn’t love pizza? For many of us who have eschewed gluten or grains in general or totality in the journey of moving towards a more ancestral or paleo or traditional wholefoods diet, this has meant giving up the much beloved pizza. Not anymore. Pure Paleo makes a totally grain-free, soy-free, sugar-free, crap-free Organic Paleo Wrap which can be used as a pizza base. Made with only 5 ingredients: certified organic coconut flour, tapioca flour, coconut oil, water and unrefined salt.
Here’s a simple and fun dinner you can make with the kids. Big kids too!
1. Gluten-free pizza base (eg Organic Paleo Wraps by Pure Paleo).
2. Tomato paste (I like the Global Organics brand)
· Zucchini, thinly sliced (eg with vegetable peeler)
· Red and or green capsicum, thinly sliced
· Pineapple, chopped
· Mushrooms, sliced
· Mozzarella cheese, grated
· Fresh or dried herbs such as basil, oregano,
Place each base on a baking tray. Spread with a thin layer of tomato paste. Add desired toppings and finish with grated mozzarella cheese. Season with herbs of choice and cracked pepper (the cheese is typically salty enough to not warrant adding extra salt especially if you have included anchovies).
Bake at 150 degrees for 20 minutes or until toppings are cooked and cheese has melted. Cut with pizza cutter then transfer to a plate.
I set out all the toppings in little bowls and get the kids to build their own pizzas by selecting their own toppings. They have so much fun doing this. Serve with a big green salad, and a cup of broth of course :-)
Ok, so the Paleo Wraps don’t taste as amazing as a gluten-based pizza but I was really surprised at how delicious it was and the kids demolished it. If you are after a traditional pizza I highly recommend Pompei in Bondi which is the only pizzeria I know of in Sydney (possibly Australia?) that makes pizzas bases from organic sourdough (no yeast) with a sourdough starter that is proven for 36 hours. They use only olive oil as opposed to industrial seed oils (like canola or vegetable oils) and their vegetables and dairy are organic. Artisanal pizza made on the premises. No wonder they have been voted the best pizza in Sydney. So IF you are going to eat pizza out, then this is the place to go. They also make a gluten-free pizza with sorghum, rice flour and millet flour (with no soy flour). To read why soy flour is so bad, read my earlier blog here. Pompei also serves traditional Italian fare like meat and vegetables so there are plenty of non-pizza options for those wanting or needing to avoid grains altogether. Their gelato is to die for and also made on the premises. George and Aidsa Pompei are as passionate about food as I am and do not compromise on quality. So nice to know that places like this exist!
