Healthy Spelt Pizza

Yes! Who would have thought? It exists! A healthy pizza! Made of spelt flower, so no processed white grain products. It still contains gluten, but this pizza is amazing and definitely one of my favorite Sunday meals! It takes some time, mostly waiting but it's worth it.

Recipe is for 1 pizza!

Duration: 40 minutes preparation, 20 minutes oven

Ingredients for the pizza crust:

  • 7 gr dried yeast
  • 1/2 ts agave syrup
  • 140 gr spelt flower + little bit extra for sprinkle
  • 1/4 ts Himalayan sea salt
  • 10 ml olive oil extra virgin

Ingredients for the topping:
  • 1 small can double concentrated tomato paste
  • 1 ts oregano
  • 1 tomato
  • 3 slices chicken breast
  • Handful of grated cheese of choice
  • Handful arugula
  • 3 cherry tomatoes
  • 1 organic egg

What you do:
  1. Dissolve the yeast in 100 ml lukewarm water and stir in the agave syrup. 
  2. Mix in a large bowl the spelt flower with Himalayan sea salt. Stir in the yeast mixture and the olive oil and knead the dough for 5 to 8 minutes. Make sure your hands are covered in flower to avoid that the dough sticks to your hands. Cover the bowl with plastic film and leave the dough to rise in a warm place for 30-35 minutes. Meanwhile, preheat your oven to 200 degrees of Celsius.
  3. After 30-35 minutes knead the dough again, add some flower if the dough is to sticky.
  4. Put some grease proof paper on your griddle and sprinkle over some flower so the dough doesn't stick to the paper. Roll the dough into a large circle of which the edges are somewhat elevated. Make sure it's thin but not to thin. 
  5. Spread over the tomato paste with the back of a spoon. Sprinkle with oregano. Then put the sliced chicken breast and tomato on top and cover with grated cheese. Put in the oven for 10 minutes.
  6. After 10 minutes get the pizza out of the oven. Break the egg in the middle and put it back for another 10 minutes.
  7. When your delicious pizza is done spread over the arugula and sliced cherry tomatoes and your pizza is ready!
