Salmon pizza 1For those pizza loving sporty sisters of the world, this recipe is for you! We are all about finding healthy solutions so you will never be without the food you love, and with that in mind, we invited one of our favourite foodie bloggers, Amy Crawford from The Holistic Ingredient to share her super special Gluten-Free Salmon, Pesto & Goat Cheese Pizza with the MNB community.

It can be a pretty sad day for a newly gluten-free pizza fan when he or she realises pizza is now off the agenda. Well, all hope is not lost! This crispy-bottomed pizza does just the trick – I promise (unless of course you prefer a thick and doughy base, which this is most definitely not). It’s light and totally scrumptious with a whole combination of flavours, so now you have the base down pat you can create your own designer pizza masterpieces.

Gluten-Free Salmon, Pesto & Goats Cheese Pizza!

Preparation Time: 10 minutes
Total Time: 30 minutes
Servings: Serves 2

  • Base:
  • ½ cup almond meal
  • ½ -3/4 cup chickpea (besan) flour
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 garlic clove, crushed
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped parsley and/or basil
  • 1 dessertspoon nutritional yeast flakes
  • ½ tablespoon lemon juice
  • ½ tablespoon coconut oil (melted if hard)
  • Good pinch of salt
  • Topping:
  • 200 grams canned or cooked salmon
  • 2 heaped tablespoons basil pesto
  • 1 large handful rocket
  • Approximately 6 cherry tomatoes, halved
  • Approximately 40g goat cheese
  • ½ lemon to squeeze
How to make it:
  • Preheat the oven to 220°C and prepare a greased baking tray.
  • To make the pizza base, throw all the ingredients into a bowl and mix – start with ½ cup besan flour. Once you have mixed the egg through, use your hands to mix. If you find the mixture gets too wet and sticky (it needs to have a similar texture to bread dough) slowly add in more flour.
  • When ready, place the dough between two pieces of baking paper and roll into an even thin circle. Pop onto the greased tray and into the oven for 10 minutes.
  • Once removed from the oven, spread the pesto thinly across the pizza (leaving the edges clean). Sprinkle your salmon evenly on top, followed by the goat cheese.
  • Place back in the oven for a further 10 minutes, keeping an eye on it in case the edges start to burn – you may find it is ready in less time. Remove from oven, scatter the rocket and cherry tomatoes and drizzle with lemon juice.

      Hi Rachel,
      You can usually buy this at your local health food store, otherwise online is always an option.
      You can substitute it with another form of flour depending on whether you want to keep it gluten free or not :)
      I hope this helps!

    All of these skating drills are performed and practiced using a puck and a stick.
    It provides the children the required skills for turning into a well behaved and disciplined adult.
    Pet parents can win dog collars, three-day boarding passes and more.
    For me the study and practice of leadership has been a life-long pursuit.
    Each camper has behind-the-wheel time in both the mini-cup cars and the rally
    off-road rally karts during the week. My parents worked very hard to
    make our life better each and every day. Know that most branded clothes
    are often priced above average, especially if it is made by well-known manufacturers.
    Try shooting the river and keeping your camera very close to the ground.
    There should be at least one guard behind the sandbags in a good firing position, so try to snipe him yourself to keep the troopers
    alive. It’s something that will always be in the
    fashion limelight.

    Artificial baits include spoons, jigs, ribbon baits, rattler
    baits & streamer baits. Leave your windows open a few hours a day and then you get to clean the
    black soot off of the floors. The exception to this rule is when fishing structure, there will always be a calm spot behind structure that cat fish rest in and it
    will be natural for your bait to settle in this area.
