Kale With Love's Gluten Free Vegan Pizza!

14-Nov-2012 Contributed by: Sasha Mitchell

Ever since being diagnosed with Celiac, I have been creating my own healthy alternative cuisine. I've learned eating these nutritious foods makes you feel and look awesome all around!

Ingredients For the Dough:

• 1/4 cup chia seeds
• 1 tablespoon raw honey (or agave if you do not eat honey)
• 1/2 cup buckwheat flour
• 1/2 cup garbanzo and fava bean flour
• 1-1/2 cup quinoa flour
• 1 cup yellow corn meal
• 2 tablespoons olive oil
• 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar

Directions for the Dough:
1. Pour chia seeds in a bowl with 1/4 cup warm filtered water with the honey and allow to sit for minimum 1 hour.
2. Combine buckwheat, garbanzo/fava, quinoa, and corn meal flours in a mixing bowl.
3. Add in the olive oil, vinegar, and the chia seed mix that has been sitting for at least an hour.
4. Blend until soft, allow dough to settle for 15 minutes, and then form into a ball.
5. Place parchment paper on a pizza pan and spray with non-stick spray.
6. Place the dough ball on parchment paper/pizza tray, and roll dough into a flat pizza shape using your hands. Trick: use a plate to cut around and perfect the circular edges!

Ingredients For the Sauce:
• 1 pint baby cherry tomatoes
• 1 pint sweet baby bell peppers, chopped
• 2 tablespoons olive oil
• 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
• About 20 fresh basil leaves

Directions for the Sauce:
1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
2. Combine tomatoes and bell peppers in a roasting pan with olive oil and balsamic.
3. Bake in oven for 30 minutes, stirring every 10 minutes.
4. Remove from oven, and mix in basil.
5. Blend half of sauce mixture in a blender or Magic Bullet until a smooth light paste forms. Keep the other half chunky.

Final Directions to Finish it Off:
1. Bake the crust for 20 minutes at 425 degrees and then remove to dress with toppings.
2. Spread your tomato/bell pepper paste on the cooked crust, top with a few spoonfuls of the chunkier tomatoes/bell pepper mixture. Sprinkle vegan Daiya mozzarella cheese on top, an amount to your liking depending on how cheesy you like it!
3. Turn heat in oven up to 450, and bake for additional 10 minutes.
4. Remove from oven, allow to sit for about 5 minutes, and then enjoy!
