If you say no to pizza I don’t think we can be friends. Or we will at least have difficulty being friends. I LOVE PIZZA! And I’m thinking I might even make this again tonight for dinner. You might think making a pizza is time consuming and it takes a lot of work but it really isn’t that bad plus if you’re attempting it with a positive attitude you’re going to have a lot more fun. If you’re strapped for time though or you just really don’t feel like making your own crust you can always pick up a frozen crust at the grocery store just make sure it’s not loaded with crap!
I originally adapted this recipe from my lovely friend Joy over at Joyous Health, check her out she is such an amazing woman and definitely one of my role models. But I’m wanting to also experiment with gluten free flours such as brown rice and buckwheat. Although I’m not completely positive I’m celiac, when I do eat quite an amount of gluten I do see that it affects my skin so I’m trying my hardest to stay on the gfree track but for now spelt flour is what I’m dealing with :) If any of you have made pizza dough with gfree flours please, please, pleaaaase comment below, tweet, or facebook me and let me know!
Also, sadly this is not vegan.. So my goal is to make a perfect gfree and vegan dough for next time! Fingers crossed.
What You Need In The Kitch:
- 1 1/2 cups spelt flour – preferably stone ground organic
- 1/2 tsp sea salt
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1 egg
- 1/4 cup water or coconut milk
- 1/4 cup EVOO
Get your oven hot and ready at 425°.
In a bigger bowl, combine your flour, salt and baking powder. Now in a smaller bowl beat the egg and add in HALF of the oil, as well as either the water or milk. (I used coconut milk, you can also use your choice of dairy free milk) Add the combined wet ingredients to your dry ingredients and mix until you get a nice good ol ball of dough.
Sprinkle flour onto your counter and knead the dough 3-4 times then roll out in to a circle or square, whichever shape you prefer. The picture above was taken before I rolled the dough out. Once you have it rolled out spread the remaining oil onto the dough and top with toppings. I used kale, spinach, roma tomatoes, basil, oregano, rosemary, red onion, and garlic.
This is what it looked like before putting into the oven. I have a pizza stone so that’s what I used to bake it but you can just put it on an ordinary pan as well. It should take about 20 minutes for the pizza to cook.
Voila! Ok, I just realized the pictures don’t even look that much different, haha! Oh well. This is really good to eat topped with nutritional yeast as well. I rolled mine out into a thin crust but it’s ultimately up to you on how thick you want it to be. Wow my mouth is watering blogging about this…
I hope you guys are having a wonderful week! Let me know if you’ve been making any yummy treats or meals in The Kitch! Sharing is caring :)
Just one more quick thing! For my readers who are fitness focused – I challenge you to do a plank a day and either facebook me with your times, tweet me, or comment bellow :) My goal is to get to 5 mins a day!
