Continuing with the recipe theme, I am going to share with you another Clean Burn Shape friendly recipe. This is my own recipe I’ve tested out and adapted a few too many times till it was perfect. I’ve noticed the reason why most people cheat on their cleanse or nutritional goals is because they feel deprived and as though they’re missing out. The chickpea pizza recipe I have for you will have you fooled into thinking you’re not even on a cleanse anymore! You’ll feel as though you’re cheating with this meal, that’s how delicious it really is.
This pizza crust is made simply from garbanzo (chickpea) flour. I buy the Bob’s Red Mill brand it is strictly just beans no gluten or sugars added. On the cleanse vegetables and legumes are allowed, so that will be the only thing we will use when making this pizza. The crust is packed with tons of fiber that is actually easier to digest since the beans are already broken down into such tiny particles, making it easier to digest and absorb the nutrients. If you’d like to make this pizza after your Clean Burn Shape experience then feel free to use an organic pizza sauce, and add on some cheese or veggie mozzarella!
1 Tablespoon of Olive Oil or Non-stick cooking spray can be used
1 Zucchini Sliced
¼ Onion chopped
½ cup Spinach
¼ cup Mushrooms
½ Cup of Tomatoes or Roasted Red Peppers
Any other vegetable toppings of your choice: olives, artichokes, kale, broccoli etc….
1.Preheat the oven to 400.
2.Add all of the crust ingredients into a bowl and stir until a ball forms.
3.Pour the dough onto a pizza stone and shape into a pizza round with your hands. Extra oil and flour can be used if it feels too sticky.
4.Bake for 12 minutes and then remove from the oven. While it is baking you can prep the toppings.
5.Sauté the vegetables with the oil or non-stick cooking spray in a pan at medium heat. Add any seasonings such as sea salt, pepper or oregano for a pizza taste. If you want a pasta sauce taste then blend your tomatoes separately in a blender and season with salt pepper and oregano.
6.Assemble your pizza. If you made a sauce out of the tomatoes then spread the sauce down first and top with sautéed vegetables.
7.Turn the oven down to 375 and bake for 10-15 minutes longer, until the bottom of the crust is a golden brown.
