any paleo experts in the kitchen?! plantain pizza / pie crust...

hello there.

so, i was out at the supermarket the other day and came across some plantains on offer. i've never really considered them before, so i thought why not? and bought a few. i made some oven baked tostones (didn't like the idea of deep-frying...) and they were lovely, not sweet at all really, and with a bready texture.

i don't often paleo-fy foods, very much a fan of meat/fish and 2 veg. but, i started to think that these plantains may well lend themselves nicely to a pseudo-pizza/pie crust.

now, im no expert in the kitchen so i was wondering if anyone had experience cooking with plantains/had a recipe for a plantain pizza crust - so far i've found nothing helpful out there on the interweb.

perhaps pureeing the plantain (yellow or green?) (with an egg?) first and then put in a shallow baking tray before baking to form a crust. then add toppings and pop back in oven?

what are the thoughts of any paleo-bakers out there? i'd be interested to hear your recommendations!

thanks ! ps i would experiment myself, but currently strapped for time!

I look forward to anyone's input, but now that you've suggested it, I am going to use up some of the plantains I just got attempting this!
