Low Calorie Vegan Pizza Base Recipe

This is something I've searched for on google so many times I've lost count, but it always seems to give me odd tasting cauliflower recipes (sorry but I'm not a fan), or extremely thin bases which really aren't lower calories than normal, they're just very small. So I tried a few variations and came up with this one that is tried and tested on my food-snob boyfriend, so I hope you like it too!


The fussy boyf 

Ingredients (serves 1)

15g black chia seeds
100g wholemeal/white self raising flour
1 1/2 tsp yeast
1/4 tsp salt
80ml soya milk
Very hot water


Not my best aesthetic but it was yummy


Method

  • Soak the chia seeds in the soya milk first, stirring them in so that they are covered and leave for at least 5 minutes
  • Now pour in the flour, salt and yeast and stir well
  • Add enough boiling water so that the consistency is still very thick and can only just be stirred. Continue mixing for a couple of minutes then leave covered in the bowl by a tea towel to rise. This works best if you leave the mixture for at least an hour but if you are short on time you can just use it
  • Cover a clean space in a sprinkle of flour so that you can roll out your dough on the surface without it sticking
  • Roll out your dough! This can be as thick or as thin as you prefer, it shouldn't fall apart because the chia seeds bind the mixture together strongly :)
  • Cook at 180 degrees C under grill or fan for approximately 10-15 minutes with the toppings of your choice
  • Done!!

This recipe is so great because it provides a sturdy base, full of protein and healthy omegas while providing the novelty treat of being a pizza. It tricks you into thinking it's still junk food!
Let me know what toppings you guys decided on <3
Love Helen
