I hope you all had a great weekend! We finally had some lovely crisp Fall weather making for the perfect opportunity to bake with pumpkin and even make an oat flour pizza for our “at home date night” on Saturday. I have made this crust before but I completely forgot about it until last week when I was craving pizza. I didn’t want to spend a lot of time making a traditional crust (which isn’t the healthiest), so I threw together my oat flour crust which reminded me why I love it so much. It’s so easy to make and it tastes so good! But, I must warn you, this crust is nothing like a traditional pizza crust! It is soft in the middle and the outer crust is crunchy, but the flavor is rich and nutty making for the perfect base to any topping! My husband who is a pizza connoisseur, is very critical of my “non traditional” pizza crusts, but he agrees that my oat flour crust is a good one, especially when we want a quick, healthy pizza (though it is nothing like a regular pizza by any means, as he says!).
You can top your oat flour crust with any toppings of your choice, but our favorites are a garlic olive oil sauce with salami, artichoke hearts, kalamata olives and red onions!
So, for this Marvelous In My Monday, let’s share this marvelous pizza, shall we?
- 2 1/2 cups oat flour (I make my own by grinding whole oats in my food processor)
- 1 Tbsp baking powder
- 3 Tbsp olive oil
- 1 1/4 cup water
- 2 tsp Italian seasoning
- 1 tsp garlic no salt seasoning
- 1 tsp garlic salt
- 1 tsp black pepper
- Preheat oven to 450 degrees and prepare a baking sheet by rubbing it with olive oil or spraying with nonstick spray.
- Mix all ingredients together in a medium size bowl.
- With floured hands, spread dough out onto baking sheet and form into a circle or square (however big and thick you like).
- Bake crust for 8 minutes.
- Remove crust from oven, add sauce and whatever toppings you like and bake for another 8 minutes. Enjoy!
Have a great day!
