Quick, Easy, Grain & Gluten Free Pizza!
CATEGORIES: Dinners + Lunch Nutrition Recipes
I have to say this recipe has been a long time in the making. I have been messing about with different flours for months trying to get a quick and easy pizza base that holds its own and has nice doughy consistency and does not take hours to make or tons of faff.
I know lots of people are loving cauliflower pizza bases but I have never really been a big fan – I like pizza to hold its own and not crumble in my hand plus they do not feel quick and easy to me. I want to put ingredients in a bowl, mix, roll out, put in oven – boom!
So when I created this I was over the moon. My poor husband has had to endure leather like pizza bases, or bases that have ended up more like scrambled eggs but finally I have it down. I loved it so much I added it to my Flourish eCourse Recipe eBook during its ‘face lift’ so today is an exclusive preview (I hate keeping stuff from you), but there are 30 great recipes in the eBook (one of which being an awesome chocolate ice cream recipe – so good!) all to get you off to one healthy and tasty start. So if you thought you have to wave goodbye to pizza if you wanted to be healthy than think again!
But back to pizza. This recipe is grain, gluten and dairy free and pretty simple to make. I get the flours off of amazon (click images below) as it the simplest thing to do for me and you can add the topping of you choosing. I normally go for tomato paste, tuna, onion, mushroom and a handful of cheese – YUM!
This recipe also feature tapioca flour, a flour I love as it is full of good carbohydrates, is affordable, grain free and nut free too. So expect to see more tapioca on this blog – how 1980’s of me!
Oh and lastly this would also work great to freeze in advance so make a few, cook them all and then put the pre-baked bases in the freezer for Friday night pizza night! Yas!
- 100g tapioca
- 75g coconut flour
- Tsp salt
- 1 egg beaten
- 60ml oil
- Tsp oregano
- 150ml water
- Preheat oven to 200c. Mix the dry ingredient in a bowl. Then add the oil and mix in, followed by the beaten egg. Then slowly add the water bit by bit until a crumbly dough forms (you may not need all the water or you may need more).
- Then bring together to form on dough in your hands. Roll out between two sheets of grease proof paper until it is about 1/2 cm in thickness. Place in oven and after 10-15 pull it out and stab a few times with a knife to release air. put back in oven for further 10-15 minutes or until lightly golden.
- Then simply add your topping - I use tomato paste, mushrooms, a few handfuls of cheese and i even sneak in some spinach under the cheese!
