Ingredients

  • Pizza base ingredients
  • 225 g plain gluten-free flour I use my wholegrain blend
  • An eighth of a tea spoon bicarbonate of soda
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1 tsp xanthan gum or 1 tsp psyllium husk
  • 1 egg
  • 40 ml olive oil
  • 70 ml water
  • For the pizza sauce:
  • 1 tin chopped tomatoes
  • 1 tsp dried mixed herbs
  • Half tsp dried rosemary
  • 1 clove garlic finely chopped
  • Oil for frying
  • Half tin butter beans drained and rinsed
  • Optional 1tsp pesto depending on diet - use home made if avoiding dairy
  • Seasoning

Method

  1. For the base:
  2. Mix together the dry ingredients in a medium sized bowl
  3. Mix together the egg, olive oil and water in a measuring jug
  4. Add the 'wet' ingredients to the dry and mix together until you have a dough that looks like 'normal' bread dough. I left this to rest for approx. 30 minutes at room temperature while I made the sauce but I am not sure if this is necessary.
  5. Once you are ready to roll out the bases, put flour on a clean tea towel and place half the dough on top. Carefully roll the dough out to the desired size...I made mine very thin, you could make them thicker but smaller!
  6. Once rolled place an oiled baking tray or pizza tray on top of the base, flip it over and use the tea towel to ease the base off onto the tray...sounds tricky but it really isn't!
  7. Alternatively, place the dough onto a baking tray lined with reusable silicone and roll out before topping
  8. Repeat with the rest of the dough. Viola! Pizza bases ready for their topping...
  9. To make the pizza sauce:
  10. Place a little oil in a saucepan and add the chopped garlic. Cook for approx. 1 minute over a low heat making sure it doesn't burn
  11. Add all the other ingredients
  12. Using a handheld stick blender, blitz the mixture until smooth
  13. Cook for approx. 5 minutes to heat through
  14. Spread generously on the pizza bases, then top with whatever ingredients you like...avoiding the cheese if you have cheese haters or people intolerant to dairy, or vegans!
  15. Cook at 240 degrees for 8-12 minutes until it gets to your desired crispness!
  16. Serve with some veges of some sort!
