10 minute Healthy Pizza

The words healthy and pizza never go together, especially if you’re in medical school. For the love of pizza, I’ve been experimenting a few recipes and finally found one that I enjoy and can make during a short break between studying!

 

Ingredients:

  • 3/4 cup Chickpea flour
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon Garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon garam masala (optional)
  • 1 teaspoon cumin seeds (optional)
  • 200g Tomato paste
  • 1 teaspoon basil
  • 1 teaspoon oregano
  • 1/2 tablespoon chopped garlic
  • pizza toppings of your choice
    • I used peppers, onions, pineapple, and feta cheese

Directions:

  1. Pizza Crust
    • Preheat the oven to 450 degrees
    • In a medium bowl, combine the chickpea flour, water, olive oil, sea salt, and garlic powder
      • you may add garam masala and cumin seeds or any other spices, I like putting an Indian twist on my pizza
    • mix the ingredients, it won’t look like dough, it will have a little more liquid consistency
    • Place the “dough” on a pan and use a spoon to create a round, even layer
    • Allow the dough to bake for 5-7 mins until it turns a light brown along the edges
  2. Pizza Sauce
    • In a pot, add the tomato paste, basil, oregano, chopped garlic and allow it to cook for 5 mins to allow the flavor to soak
      • it’s advised to do this while the dough it in the oven to save time
  3. PIZZZAAAA
    1. Allow the dough to cool for a little bit while you chop your toppings of choice
    2. Add the Pizza sauce and store the remaining
    3. Add your toppings
    4. Sprinkle your cheese of choice
    5. Place back in the oven for 5 minutes
    6. After 5 mins, allow the pizza to cool
    7. Bon appetit!
