Ingredients

  • 1/4 Cup Chia seeds
  • 2 1/2 Cups Whole wheat flour
  • 1 ts Salt
  • 3 ts Baking Soda
  • 3 ts Dried Basil
  • 1/2 ts Garlic Powder
  • 1 ts Olive Oil
  • 1 1/2 Cup Water
  • Toppings
  • 1 Cup Marinara Sauce
  • 1 Cup Mozzarella Cheese, Ricotta or Parmesan
  • 3 slices tomato
  • 1/2 ts Chopped Basil
  • Mushrooms or Eggplant

Instructions

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.
