This may sound a little weird, oats in pizza crust, but when I had the idea I had to try it! Luckily it worked out and tastes delicious! It's super simple, gets crispy on the bottom and is completely gluten free! If you have never made your own pizza crust before I highly suggest it - it's fun, easy and rewarding!
I do want to warn you that this does not make a puffy pizza crust like Milanos or Gabriels pizza, however if you've had cauliflower crust or are looking for a nutritious pizza crust this is it.
1 tsp active yeast
1/2 cup warm water
1 tbsp flour
1 1/4 cup oat flour
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp avocado oil (or other)
1 tsp Italian seasoning
1/4 tsp garlic powder
In a bowl add in warm water, 1 tbsp of flour and your active yeast. Allow to sit for 1-5 minutes (depending on how active your yeast is).
Add to your yeast mixture everything else. Once the dough starts forming, get your hands in there and knead the dough. It should be a little sticky, if it's too sticky add in a little more flour if it's dry add a bit of water. Once you had formed into a ball, place a little oil along the bottom of a bowl and allow your ball of dough to sit in a warmer place for 20 minutes.
Start prepping your toppings. Pictured is pizza sauce, vegan earth island cheese, zucchini, broccoli, tomatoes, capers, sliced up seitan (Buddhist chef's recipe), bell peppers and chipotle mayo sauce on top (mayo, hot sauce & BBQ sauce). Put anything on your pizza that you love! Preheat oven to 350° degrees. Once your dough has sat for 20 minutes, start to roll it out. You can do this with a rolling pin or you can roll it out with your hands. To make the crust I rolled back some of the dough inward to form a lip around the pizza. Place pizza on a pan and bake for 25-30 minutes, until golden brown. Now it's time to enjoy! :)
