Oats Pizza Recipe
I got this oats pizza recipe from my mother-in-law and like all old recipes go, it’s quite fool proof!
Oats flour 1 cup
All purpose flour 1 cup
Instant yeast 3 teaspoon
Oil 3 tablespoon
Milk 1 cup
Ajwain 1 tablespoon
Flax seeds 1 tablespoon
Mozzarella Cheese 2 cups
Pizza sauce 1 cup
Salt 1 teaspoon
Sugar 1 teaspoon
For toppings: arugula, shiitaki mushrooms, olives, or anything of your choice!
For oats flour, you can either grind oats in a coffee blender or buy oats flour from the market.
Add one cup of oats flour, 1/2 cup all-purpose flour, 1 teaspoon sugar, 1 teaspoon salt and 3 teaspoon instant yeast in a bowl with 3 tablespoon of oil and mix well. Now add 1 cup of warm milk and mix more. Sprinkle in 1 tablespoon ajwain, flax seeds and keep mixing.
Add 1/2 cup of all-purpose flour slowly and keep kneading so that a nice dough forms. Cover and place in a warm spot for 2 hours for the dough to rise.
Once the dough is ready, take out a ball and flatten it in a circle. Stretch out in an oven-friendly tray that has been greased.
My children love making fun shapes.
Spread pizza sauce on the dough and then lots of mozzarella cheese.
You can bake the pizza just like this for a plain cheese oats pizza or add fun toppings!
We like to add arugula and chopped shiitaki mushrooms on the pizza for the grownups. You can also add cooked chicken or meat!
Bake in a preheated oven at 425F for 15 minutes.
Let the pizza sit for 5 minutes before eating.
This recipe will make one large pizza or two small ones! The kids take extra joy in eating their own cooking. Zeynab made a heart shaped one and Hussein a round one.
You can double the recipe to make two large pizzas.
The above is a round-shaped pizza we made with the same oats pizza recipe using arugula and shiitake mushrooms as toppings.
It was quite delicious and wholesome.
By the way, a fun fact from colour psychology is that you eat less if you eat in a blue plate!
Another healthy pizza recipe is a cauliflower pizza.
