This pizza proves that healthy doesn’t have to be boring!
Just about everybody I’ve ever met loves the flavor of pizza, but many are less enthralled with how they feel after eating it.
I used to feel bloated and my stomach used to hurt, so that’s when I decided to develop my own pizza recipes. While I have multiple food sensitivities and you might not, you can modify this vegan gluten free pizza recipe to your preferences.
You might be wondering how a vegan gluten free pizza might taste, but you will just have to trust me until you taste it yourself. You won’t miss what it does not have! And, you’ll thank me for how much better you feel than how you normally feel.
This vegan gluten free pizza is satisfying and filling enough to have for lunch or dinner. You can also get super creative with your pizza!
Vegan Gluten-Free Pizza
For the dough:
- ½ teaspoon apple cider vinegar
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- ½ cup water
- 1 ⅓ cup almond flour
- ½ cup arrowroot starch
- ½ cup potato starch
- ½ teaspoon garlic powder
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- ½ teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon flaxseed meal
For the toppings:
- ½ red onion julienned
- 4 large mushrooms thinly sliced
- 1 red bell pepper julienned
- ½ cup unsalted chickpeas rinsed, drained, and cooked
- 4 ounces artichoke hearts cooked, thinly sliced
- 3 cups baby spinach whole leaves
- ½ teaspoon black pepper freshly ground
- Pizza dough ingredients above
- 1 cup pizza sauce of your choice
- Toppings ingredients above
- 1 cup vegan parmesan cheese
- 1 tablespoon fresh basil parsley, or oregano, thinly sliced
- Preheat the oven to 375°F and line your baking tray with parchment paper.
- In a small mixing bowl, combine wet ingredients: apple cider vinegar, olive oil, and water. Whisk together and set aside.
- In a medium-sized mixing bowl, combine dry ingredients: almond flour, arrowroot starch, potato starch, garlic powder, baking soda, salt, and flaxseed meal. Carefully mix them until well combined.
- Now, mix the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients. Mix it well until it starts to form a dough then start kneading. Add more flour if the dough is too wet or sticky. On the other hand, add a little more water if it’s too dry.
- Shape the dough into a circle or square, whichever you prefer. Use a rolling pin to flatten and shape it. You may also make it as thick as you want but a quarter-inch thick is ideal.
- Transfer the dough into the prepared oven tray and bake for 10 minutes. Meanwhile, start preparing your toppings.
- Remove the pre-baked dough in the oven and crank up the oven temperature to 475ºF.
- Pour the pizza sauce onto the dough and spread evenly, leaving the edge a quarter to half-inch empty.
- Arrange all the toppings over and bake for another 10-15 minutes, or until the toppings are toasted and the crust is firm and slightly golden brown.
- Remove from the oven, sprinkle with parmesan cheese, and garnish with fresh parsley, oregano, or basil. Divide into 6 slices. Serve and enjoy!
- You may omit any of the above vegetables that you don’t like and replace them with the ones that you prefer. Feel free to get creative with this!
