  • 30 g The Groovy Food Company Organic Coconut Flour
  • ½ tsp garlic granules to taste
  • sea salt

For the sauce

  • 2 tbsp tomato puree
  • 2 tsp sundried tomato paste
  • 2 tbsp water

For the topping

  • 50 g shitake mushroom  take off stalks, slice thinly
  • 75 g mozzarella ripped

  1. Preheat the oven to, gas mark 7, 425°F, 220°C (200°C fan-assisted).

  3. Add the egg and beat in with the plantain, blend until mixed together and then season with sea salt and garlic granules.

  4. Add the coconut flour and combine together until a thick paste and shape in to a ball.

  5. On a baking tray pre-lined with baking parchment or silicone baking mat, pat your plantain mixture evenly onto the baking mat in a round shape (9 inch), ½cm thickness and smooth it out so there are no bumps at the top. 

  6. Place it in the oven for 14-15 minutes. Depending on your oven, you may need to turn the tray round half way to make sure it’s evenly cooked.

  7. While the pizza base is in the oven, make the tomato sauce.

  8. In a bowl mix together the tomato puree with water, until a smooth consistency, add the sundried tomato paste, agave nectar, sea salt and black pepper and mix together. Slice the mushrooms and set aside.

  9. Once the base is cooked, take it out of the oven and carefully flip it over. Smooth the tomato sauce over the base and top with the mushrooms and ripped mozzarella strands.

  10. Drizzle with a touch of olive oil and season lightly with sea salt and mixed herbs. Place back in the oven for a further 9-10 minutes. Once cooked take out, garnish with basil leaves.
