Happy St George’s Day! We love themed days! Themed days in our kitchen means our minds zoom into sixth gear into creative overdrive to try and find food to theme to the theme!
Usually our first stop is the cookie cutter drawer where we are usually bound to have something, though to my dismay this morning we couldn’t find any dragons or roses – (now noted on the ever-growing, never-ending ‘to buy’ list. Hands up who has one of those? 😆)
Second stop, Google. Our when-in-despair-Google-is-there motto resulted in many England flag cupcakes however an alarming shortage in our household of all ingredients sweet and sticky wouldn’t make for an appetising recipe.
And… So on to stop three: The Fridge.
Perfect. Third time lucky – 30 second eye scan and we knew just what to do! a St George’s Day Pizza coming to you!
First the base made with coconut flour, tapioca flour, ground linseed/flaxseed, a drizzle of olive oil, warm water and a pinch of salt. Mixed into a fluffy dough, kneaded and rolled into the pan and baked for 18-20 minutes.
And then we stirred together some of our Perfect Pizza Sauce 🍎👌 whilst we were waiting for the base to crisp at the edges.
For the toppings We sliced some courgette with our Oxo Good Grips Mandoline and sliced some red pepper strips and created: drum roll please…..
Little red England inspired flags! These were placed on top of some chopped curly kale for our base topping to represent the scenic English meadows and Summer country picnics on the grass.
Now we are sure from our history learning we rememembed a Prince Orange, and sure enough we confirmed after a short research that William III, King of England was also sovereign Prince of Orange – a loose connection, we know! However enough to excuse some slices of orange on our pizza!
A sprinkle of salt and pepper and into the oven it went until crispy!!
Et Voila! 20 minutes later – A delicious healthy and plantbased gluten free and organic pizza themed for St George’s Day lunch!
