Gluten Free Pizza Base

Pizza definitely has the association of being a 'bad' food and generally the ones that we purchase from pizza shops are made of white flour, have sugar in the base and are covered with toppings that are full of trans-saturated fats. However, just because you are wanting to make healthier choices around your nutrition, does not mean that you have to give up on one of your favourite meals. This pizza base is adapted from the Quirky cooking Thermomix recipe and is full of protein and omega 3's which will have you enjoying every mouthful of your pizza without any associated guilt.


150g quinoa flour
2 tablespoons chia flour
pinch sea salt
180ml water

Olive oil (for baking)

Toppings: as you desire
roasted / steamed vegetables

Preheat oven to 180 degrees and prepare your tray with baking paper and a drizzle of olive oil.

Have all your toppings ready and waiting.

Combine all the ingredients in a bowl and mix until it becomes a well combined sticky dough.

Spread the dough on the prepared tray and cover with your toppings.
