- 1/4 Cup Chia seeds
- 2 1/2 Cups Whole wheat flour
- 1 ts Salt
- 3 ts Baking Soda

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
Combine the chia seeds, flour, baking powder, garlic powder, salt and basil in a medium-sized bowl.
Pour in the warm water and oil. Mix the ingredients together using a spoon.
Pour the mixture on a clean and floured surface. Knead it until you form a dough. This should not take more than 2 minutes.
Using a rolling pin line, you have to make a large circle. Spray a pizza pan with cooking spray.
Put the dough on the pan. Roll in and then pinch the edges so that you can form a crust.
Now cook this crust for 10 minutes or until the dough appears to be dry.
Choose your Toppings I would recommend using mushrooms, tomatoes, basil, and add parmesan, ricotta or Mozzarella cheese on top.
Simply spread about a cup of marinara sauce on the cup then sprinkle with 3 ounces of shredded mozzarella cheese.
Dollop half a cup of ricotta cheese over the pizza dough and top it with 3 slices of fresh plum tomatoes and sliced mushrooms.
Sprinkle with a tablespoon of finely grated Parmesan cheese before baking it for 10-12 minutes at 450 degrees Fahrenheit.
