Chia & Buckwheat Pizza
I am in love with this recipe. Its versatile , customizable and delicious, but the most important question is do you want it Sweet or Savoury?
Everyone always tells me how great t is that I have such great willpower to say no to all the treats and temptations out there. I genuinely don’t feel deprived at all because I satisfy my sweet cravings and I find alternatives. Here i’m eating Pizza so no more will you banish your weekend Pizzas, you can just make your own !

I’ve shown the Napolina pizza base macros for comparison.
For a savoury Pizza, I use Tomato puree for my base, cook some chicken and half cook some vegetables. I then add my toppings to the base and cook for a further 10 minutes. Add cheese as well so that it melts in the oven if you like cheese.
I’ve had this as a breakfast and cooked the base the night before and also as a dessert. You need to top the base with a sauce consistency, I use greek yogurt, alternatively you could use a berry compote or mashed banana. Then add any toppings you like, my favourite are bananas and nut butter; but you could top with dried fruit, other fruits, seeds or nuts.
