Paleo pizza on grain-free seed toast – vegan/vegetarian

20140905_185918

I’ve made cauliflower pizza crusts a few times and while I find them very tasty, it’s a pretty labour intensive process. Also, my bases never really mimic the texture of a ‘real’ pizza base (well mine don’t, anyway). So on Friday when I was craving a pizza – the kind you can pick up in your hands without it disintegrating – I knew cauliflower wasn’t going to be the answer. Instead, I decided to use grain free seed toast as my base.

The result was delicious, filling and as close to pizza as I’ve come so far. Plus it was incredibly easy to make. You can obviously change the toppings to suit your taste – these are just my faves.

Paleo pizza on grain-free seed toast

Ingredients

  • 3 slices grain free toast (I buy Lifebake)
  • A few teaspoons tomato paste
  • Dried basil and oreganum
  • Chopped garlic
  • 1 large tomato, sliced
  • 1/4 onion, sliced thinly
  • Handful of calamata olives, pitted and halved
  • Half a ripe avocado, sliced
  • Salt and black pepper

Method

Preheat oven to 180C (350F).

In a small bowl, mix the tomato paste, oreganum and basil. Spread the mixture onto your slices of grain toast.

Cover the toast with all the toppings except the avo. Bake for 10 minutes.
