Home – Made Gluten Free Besan Pizza

If you like using your hands when eating pizza and want a healthier version then the gluten laden store bought versions try this delicious number. I made this last night and I can't tell you how excited I was to be able to pick up my slice and devour it's contents, creating a mess as I polished it off. Experiment with your toppings. For best results stick to the principle of simple is best. No more than 3-4 ingredients. I made one half dairy free and the other with goats feta for my fella. You can make this one vegetarian friendly too if you like 🙂 I must say the besan flour makes this pizza quite filling which helps avoid over consumption..

On a nutritional note besan flour is a rich source of fibre which helps to regulate bowel movements, lower cholesterol and support weight loss. Besan is also a form of starch that helps stabilise blood sugar levels and help prevent diabetes.

Crust Ingredients

1 1/2 cup besan (chickpea) flour

5 organic eggs

1 tsp turmeric

Pre-heat oven to 200 degrees.

Line a baking or pizza tray with baking paper.

Place all ingredients in a large bowl and blend well using a large spoon until moist and sticky.

Place mixture onto baking paper and spread out. Thin to medium thickness. Press out using fingers so that base is even.

Bake in oven for 15 minutes until slightly golden.

Remove from oven.

2 tbsp ghee (or olive or coconut oil)

 

Method

Blend ingredients together in a food processor and smear over top of base.
