Do you love pizza but want to find a way to make it healthier? Perhaps you have a food allergy that keeps you from enjoying a slice of this delicious pie. To get the taste and quality you desire, create custom pizzas with the crust that’s best for you.
What are your options? There are plenty! Consider the following ideas for custom pizzas. Use these crust substitutes to make your next pizza unique and enjoyable.
Are you familiar with chickpeas? If you’ve ever tried hummus, you’ve enjoyed these versatile legumes. As it turns out, they not only make a great chip dip, but they can also be used to create a pizza crust! Use chickpea flour to make your next pizza crust and enjoy a dinner packed with protein and flavor.
If bakers can use carrots to make cakes taste great, why not pizza, too? With three medium carrots and a food processor, you can blend this rabbit food into a great paste to create your crust. Once you’ve strained the processed carrots, you’ll just need some garlic, mozzarella cheese and an egg. This mixture makes a great blend that you can spread to form your crust.
Sweet Potato Crust
Have you tried sweet potato pie? This is a bit different, but the great flavor of the sweet potato still comes through. This gluten-free and vegan option can provide a great alternative crust for your custom pizza. Just steam your sweet potatoes and mix them with oat flour, almond meal, a chia egg, apple cider vinegar, olive oil and your favorite spices. Voila! You have a healthy and tasty pizza crust. It smells great too!
Yes, it’s good for more than eggplant parmesan. This healthy veggie can provide the base for your next delicious custom pizza. Peel and grate a large eggplant, then use a cheesecloth to remove the excess water. Combine the eggplant with almond flour, coconut flour, flaxseed, an egg and seasonings to taste. Roll the mixed dough out onto your pan for baking and enjoy!
This gluten-free grain has taken the modern kitchen by storm. It’s popped up in many recipes of late, and custom pizzas are no exception. This easy quinoa crust is the ideal solution for those looking for a gluten alternative. Simply soak ¾ cup of quinoa overnight (six to eight hours), then blend it with ¼ cup water, ½ teaspoon baking powder, ½ teaspoon salt and a tablespoon of olive oil. This will create a pancake-like batter you can place in your pizza pan for baking. Choose some healthy toppings and enjoy this new spin on custom pizzas!
