Here’s a recipe perfect for tonight AND for the big game on Sunday. You know when you just crave the ooey gooey messy goodness of pizza? Here’s a way to enjoy the best of toppings on your pizza without having lots of dough to eat, too! This pizza is crusty and easy to make – without having to break out the mixer.
Garlic is an important ingredient in this recipe. We typically use fresh garlic, but we don’t want to add more liquid to the crust, so garlic powder is perfect for this recipe. We’re also using Italian seasoning – typically a blend of basil, oregano, marjoram, thyme and other Mediterranean herbs and spices. Putting in the crust along with the garlic powder means the crust is packed with flavor and nutrition.
*Did you know that you could use oats as a flour substitute in some recipes? Just use your blender or food processor to buzz old fashioned rolled oats into a powder, you are aiming for the same texture as wheat flour, but you can have a few larger bits and pieces as well.
Preheat oven to 400°F. Combine oat flour, baking powder, salt and Italian seasoning in a large bowl. Mix in eggs, honey, water and olive oil until dough forms.
To assemble the pizza, spread the dough with sauce, sprinkle with cheese and and add your favorite toppings. Transfer pizza to oven and cook for 15 minutes.
TIP: The best way to form the pizza crust is by dropping a spoonful of dough on a baking sheet and flattening it with wet hands – the dough will remind you of clay. Your edges do not have to be perfect neither does the shape.
