Garlic Broccoli Pizza |Vegan + Gluten Free

Pizza cravings. 

My brother was rolling out a doughy, white crust; full of eggs and gluten and sugar but smelling yeasty and amazing.  He spooned savory tomato sauce on top, sprinkled a mix of cheddar and mozzarella.  My stomach growled.

It’s not that I crave animal products – at all – anymore.  But sometimes, I do crave the end product.  In this case, pizza.

But I’m not one to be deterred by the fact that traditional pizza involves dairy and gluten. I dug out all my favorite ingredients and got to work.

This pizza is far from a typical greasy, Italian delight.  However, it is satisfying, delicious and incredibly healthy.  The garlic broccoli on top mimics the umami taste of cheese pizza, and a sprinkle of nutritional yeast adds a cheesy flavor.  The crust is gluten-free, a little crispy with just the right bit of chewiness.



2 cups rice flour

1 tsp baking powder

1 tbsp ground flaxseed

1/2 tsp salt

1 tsp vinegar

1/2 cup flour

2 tbsp oil

Combine all ingredients, press onto lightly greased pizza stone.  Bake 10-15 minutes, until crispy but not browned.

5 oz pizza sauce

3 cups cooked, tender broccoli

3 cloves minced garlic

1 tbsp butter

nutritional yeast

Spread pizza sauce on crust.  Melt butter and stir in garlic and broccoli.  Spread on pizza, sprinkle with nutritional yeast.
