This recipe is: Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free, Meat-Free, Vegan.

Ingredients

For the crust:

  • 1/3 cup coconut flour
  • 3 tablespoons coconut oil, melted
  • 3 eggs or for vegan option, 3 flax eggs
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon dried oregano
  • ¼ teaspoon garlic powder
  • seasoning of your choice!

For the ‘cheese’:

  • 1 sweet potato, cooked
  • ¼ cup water
  • ¼ cup coconut milk
  • ½ teaspoon sea salt
  • cooked onion and garlic
  • 1 tablespoon tomato puree

For the topping:

  • Tomato puree
  • Your favourite veggie toppings
  • A sprinkling of oregano and basil
Method
  1. We’ll start off with the base! Combine all the ingredients, then spread the dough into a circular shape on grease proof paper, ensuring the base is around 1 centimetre thick.
  2. Bake in a preheated oven at around 200 C / 400 F for about 10 minutes – but keep an eye on it as this may vary from oven to oven!
  3. Next, the ‘cheese’! This part is easy: simply combine the ingredients in a food processor or blender, and blitz until smooth!
  4. Now, let’s put it all together! Spread a tomato puree mixture on top of the base (with any desired herbs and seasonings mixed in), along with half of your preferred stir-fried veggies.
  5. Next, add the ‘cheese’ and put the other half of the veggies on top!
  6. Place under a medium grill for around 5-10 minutes, until you reach your desired level of crispiness!
  7. Sprinkle with oregano and basil, and try to not eat it all at once!
