Flaxseed Pizza Base

No comments:
We have the most fabulous grain free, dairy free and gluten free pizza base which holds all of your toppings perfectly, fills you with important Omega-3 and keeps your stomach happy! This recipe can also be used for all you raw beauties out there - we promise once you have made this once your life will be changed forever, yes we are talking guilt free pizza HORAY!

Check out the ingredients you will need below (this makes 2 pizzas)!

  • 2 cups of flax seeds
  • 1 1/2 cups of water
  • dried oregano
  • dried parsley
  • dried basil
  • pinch of salt
  • nutritional yeast - this gives a marvellous cheesy flavour to anything so if you're new to being a vegan please do add this to your cupboard!
  • vegan cheese - we used a selection of 3
  • kale
  • tomato
  • tomato puree
  • 1/2 red onion

To make the base

  • Place your flax seeds in the food blender and blend until ground - if you do not have a blender then we advise to buy your flax already ground!
  • Stir in oregano, parsley, basil, salt and nutritional yeast
  • Add half a cup of water at a time and stir until your mix looks like an oatmeal paste
  • Knead dough mix for a few minutes and form into a ball
  • Split your mix into two equal balls
  • After placing parchment paper into your tins place your dough in the middle - we used 2 cake tins to allow us to form a crust on the pizza
  • Press your fingers into the dough and spread to form a pizza shape, no more than 1/2 inch thick (although this depends on your own preferences)
  • Place base into oven at 200 degrees for around 10-15 minutes - you're looking for your base to be crispy but not over cooked as remember it will be popping back into the oven with the toppings
For the topping

  • With a spatula spread your tomato puree on the base
  • Add vegan cheese
  • Pop on your kale, red onions and tomatoes
  • Sprinkle the top with some pepper and more nutritional yeast if you want
  • Bake pizza for 10-15 minutes until the toppings are nice and cooked
  • Invite some garlic mayo or guacamole and enjoy every mouthful!
