Who doesn't LOVE pizza (if you don't, I'm afraid we can't be friends ).
So what if you are on a fat loss plan, can you still eat pizza? YES
OK, so what about if you want to be gluten free and vegan, can you eat pizza? YES
I don't know about you, but the shop bought GF, Vegan pizzas are not only hard to come by, but not awful nice. I had a great experience at Pizza Express (although they were a tad tight on the "cheese").
The simple answer is create your own. I took a recipe from my Joe Wicks #90dayveggieplan and gave it a gluten free and vegan makeover that I'm going to share with you right now!!
35g+ (see notes) gluten free self raising flour
35g gram flour (chickpea flour)
65g of non dairy yoghurt - I used KoKo
1/4 tsp baking powder
Pinch salt (I added a few sneaky chilli flakes too)
1 dsp tomato puree
45g vegan cheese (your choice - I used the grated mozzarella type)
Toppings of your choice - I used antipasti...
On 1st January, hubby and I decided to embark on Joe Wicks 90 Day Plan. Truthfully, we both signed up the middle of last year but never really implemented consistently. And what happens when you are not consistent? You don't get results. Simple.
Although I didn't eat much over Christmas (and drank substantially less too), I felt pretty groggy by the time the year ended. Having spent 85% of my time gluten free and vegan for the past 4 months - eating cheese, crackers and bread on a daily basis had played havoc with my mood, my appearance and my digestion. TIME TO DO SOMETHING.
Whilst Joe Wicks has some amazing recipes on the programme (as well as online and in his books).. I do LOVE to experiment and that's how I came up with these balls of deliciousness. Super quick, easy, cheap and healthy.. ready to give them a go?
1-2 tsp coconut oil
1 can chickpeas drained
1 red chilli - finely chopped
2 cloves of garlic - finely chopped
