- 5 tablespoons chia seeds
- 4 heaped tablespoons buckwheat flour
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 200ml water
- 1 tablespoon rosemary
- 1 teaspoon oregano
- ½ teaspoon salt

Preheat the oven to 175oC/350oF/gas mark 4.
Mix all base ingredients together using a fork or whisk until it forms a thick batter. If you feel it isn't thick enough, add a little more buckwheat flour but give it a few minutes to thicken up before doing this.
Line a round 28cm baking tray with baking paper and oil it to stop the pizza base sticking. Drop the thick batter onto the tray and spread evenly with a spoon until it's just under 1cm thick.
Bake for 40 minutes.
Whilst it's baking, whizz up all the sauce ingredients until you have a smooth thick sauce (add water or olive oil if it seems too thick).
Spread the sauce over the pizza base and add your toppings of choice. Drizzle a little olive oil over the top and bake for another 5-10 minutes.
