MCLV Mange: Vegan, Gluten-Free Pizza

No matter how healthy we are there will always be cravings. Yes, the hope is that our cravings will change for the better as our diets become cleaner, especially since you know just how badly indulging will make you feel. But comfort food? Comfort food cravings never go away in my experience. So what’s a girl to do when the craving for pizza strikes?

Make pizza obviously!

SoccaPizzaThree

{Vegan, Gluten-Free Pizza}

Socca pizza to be exact. What is socca? It’s flatbread made with garbanzo bean flour that’s vegan and gluten-free. You can adjust the recipe any way you’d like, add any ingredients that strike your fancy, and even cook it in various ways. My go-to recipe is:

  • 1 Cup Garbanzo Bean Flour
  • 1/2 Cup Flax Seed Meal
  • 1/2 Cup Almond Meal
  • 1 Cup Water
  • 2 Tablespoons Coconut Oil
  • A sprinkle of salt, cumin & paprika

I’ve made socca pizzas that were traditional with tomato paste and cheese, I’ve made sweet versions with cinnamon and coconut, but my favorite is by far hummus and veggies. And luckily it couldn’t be easier to make.

Pour the “batter” into a non-stick pan coated w/ cooking spray or coconut oil, heat on low for 5-10 minutes, flip, and repeat until you get the “dough” to your desired consistency. You can make it thicker & doughier, or thinner and more like a crepe.

Then slather the socca with hummus or whatever sauce you’re craving and cover it in all your favorite toppings. From cheese & {faux} meats to sautéed veggies like I did – The world is your oyster! I mean pizza. 🙂

So tell me – What are your favorite pizza toppings?
