Ingredients
  • For the dough:
  • ¾ cup warm water (lukewarm)
  • 1 tsp coconut sugar
  • 2 Tbsp instant yeast
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour (+ a bit more for spreading)
  • ½ cup rice flour (exchange for spelt, buckwheat, or only wheat flour)
  • For the sauce:
  • ½ cup passata
  • 1 Tbsp tomato paste
  • 1 tsp balsamic vinegar
  • ½ tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp oregano
  • dash of black pepper
  • dash of Himalayan salt (optional)
  • Toppings:
  • cherry tomatoes
  • mushrooms
  • red onion
  • broccoli florets
  • artichoke
  • cashew moxarella
  • nutritional yeast
  • Tools:
  • measuring cups and spoons
  • pizza slicer
Instructions
  1. Add the water, coconut sugar and yeast to a medium sized bowl. Make sure that the water is lukewarm and not too hot. Slowly stir so that the sugar dissolves and set aside for 5 minutes until yeast gets foamy.
  2. Slowly add the flour and combine with a spatula. Form a ball from the dough with your hands and knead it for 1-2 minutes.
  3. Place the dough ball into a floured bowl, cover with a kitchen towel or cling warp and set aside for 1 hour.
  4. In the meantime, whip together all ingredients for the sauce, add spices according to taste and set aside.
  5. Divide the dough into two halves, slightly flour a baking sheet and place the ball on it. Use your hands or a rolling pin to flatten the dough to the desired thickness.
  6. Preheat the oven to 200°C.
  7. Gently spread the tomato sauce on top and add your desired toppings.
  8. Bake the pizza for 12-18 minutes (depending on the desired crunchiness and thickness) and enjoy!
