CHIA AND AL­MOND PIZZA

Makes 2 Small Piz­zas ( Serves 2) The lit­tle su­per­food seeds used in this recipe guar­an­tee a real treat for your taste buds. In­stead of cheese, we use al­mond but­ter with yeast flakes, which is beau­ti­fully creamy and also in­cred­i­bly healthy. This gluten- free pizza with al­monds will elicit a cho­rus of “Mm­mmm!” and sur­pass ev­ery­thing you would ex­pect from a re­ally good pizza. 2 Tbs. ground chia seeds

1 ¼ cups ground al­monds ½ tsp. salt gluten- free flour for dust­ing ⅓ cup to­mato sauce 2 Tbs. to­mato purée

½ tsp. olive oil sea salt freshly ground white pep­per ½ tsp. pizza sea­son­ing 1 small onion

½ small zuc­chini 1 small red pep­per 1 ½ Tbs. al­mond but­ter 1 ½ tsp. yeast flakes 2 ½ cups arugula

1. Stir chia seeds to­gether with Tbs. wa­ter and let soak min­utes. Pre­heat over to ° F, and line bak­ing sheet with parch­ment pa­per.

2. Com­bine al­monds and salt, and knead to­gether with soaked chia seeds to cre­ate smooth dough. Di­vide dough in half, and roll out each piece on floured work sur­face. Lay disks of dough onto pre­pared back­ing sheet, and bake in cen­ter of oven – min­utes, or un­til golden.

3. While dough cooks, stir to­gether to­mato sauce, to­mato purée, and olive oil, and sea­son with salt, pep­per, and pizza sea­son­ing. Peel onion, and thinly slice onion and zuc­chini.
