Power Pizza

Pizza tends to be the go-to junk food for anyone wanting to veg out. It doesn't have to be unhealthy though, we've got a recipe here for you to make a tasty fresh pizza which will keep you powered up with energy all day! This recipe is gluten free and dairy free too.



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


  • 12 cherry tomatoes or a 400g tin chopped tomatoes (drained)
  • 3 heaped tablespoons tomato paste
  • 2 garlic cloves (skinned and chopped)
  • 2 tablespoons nutritional yeast flakes
  • Splash of olive oil
  • Pinch of salt


Whatever you fancy! Some of our favs are:

    Red onion,
  • Sun-dried tomatoes,
  • Slives,
  • Thinly sliced peppers,
  • Chopped mushrooms,
  • Fresh basil

Fresh rocket on top after cooking adds a nice peppery zing!

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.
