Protein Pizza Base

Hello Everybody! How is your week going? I have started fresh this week full of energy, I spent the weekend relaxing and I think that’s exactly what I needed to get back on track. I thought I would share this pizza with you because it turned out a lot better than I thought it would and that’s always exciting! I was unsure as I thought the protein flavour was going to be overpowering but not at all. So here it is..

Ingredients:

50g pea protein powder

150g brown wholemeal flour

200ml water, luke warm

7g yeast (one sachet)

Pinch of salt

1 tbsp olive oil

Toppings: (Optional)

4 tbsp passata

1 tbsp tomato puree

1 bell pepper, sliced, grilled

½ onion, sliced, grilled

100g fresh spinach

7 squirts of coconut oil spray

1 slice of emmental, sliced

A drizzle of balsamic vinegar

To make:

  1. Place the flour and the protein in a large mixing bowl.
  2. Measure the water in a jug and stir in the yeast until it becomes cloudy and frothy. Add to the flour mixture. Stir.
  3. Add the salt and olive oil and knead the dough until it becomes stretchy, 5 minutes, preferably on a flat floured surface. Place back into the mixing bowl and cover with a tea towel for one hour to rise.
  4. Add the coconut oil to a pan and grill and peppers and onions until brown, 8-10 minutes. Add the spinach and cook for a further 3 minutes. Remove from heat.
  5. Preheat oven to 200 C.
  6. Roll out the dough and place with the toppings on.
  7. Cook the pizza for 15-17 minutes depending on how crispy you like your crust.
