Ground Flax Flour-Free Pizza Base 

 It’s Bank holiday Monday and there is an all round vote for Pizza tonight… Alas! We are out of flour and so this poses a real dilemma in our household this evening…

Do Not Fear inspiration is here! We happened to find another jar of ground flax seed in the pantry earlier this evening 👌

Ingredients:

  • 1 and 1/2 Cups ground flaxseed/linseed 
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons oregano
  • 3 tablespoons of oil
  • 3 flax eggs ( 3 tablespoons of flax + 9 tablespoons of water stirred and left to solidify in the fridge for 15 minutes)
  • 1/2 cup water

Flax seed measured into our mixing bowl….

  

Add all ingredients… 

  

See that baking powder beginning to foam! 

  

Mix all ingredients together and leave to thicken for 5 minutes… 

  

Roll out mixture onto a silicone tray to desired thickness  

 
Shaping this pizza fair and SQUARE ☺️😂 ( Well it became more rectangular actually!) then bake for 15-20 minutes 

 

Et voila! The mixture solidifies and turns a wonderful brown crispy golden colour.

  

You can see that the base has solidified and begun to rise from the silicone sheet… 

  
Now to spread our Perfect Pizza Sauce

  

And apply toppings! First fresh organic leaf spinach…

  

 …and now organic washed broccoli including thinly slicing the stalks…

 

…finally some sliced organic and washed yellow pepper  

  

Completed with a sprinkle of salt, ground pepper and mixed herbs 👌

  

Into the oven for a further 15-20 minutes then your flax crust pizza is complete. 

  

Red Pepper Hummus – Sesame Seed Free

Here’s a delicious red pepper hummus recipe, unique indeed because it’s sesame seed free!

 We like our hummus with a texture quite thick, which is why homemade we always pick!

Ingredients

  • 3 cans or cartons of pre-cooked chick peas
  • 1/2 a red pepper
  • 25ml of fresh lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin
  • 3 garlic cloves. 
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon of salt
  • 1 tablespoons olive oil
  • 120 ml water 
  • 1 teaspoon salt  

Have your chick peas ready to go…  

And measure out your lemon juice ready to flow…

  

…into the jug with your cumin too…

  

And half of a red pepper washed right through.

  

You’ll need to peel and give your garlic cloves a chop…

  

…and into the jug with the oil you pop….

  

All of the ingredients into your blend ready to whir! 

    

And in 30 seconds your hummus is ready to stir!
