Mediterranean Pizza Recipe

Different cultures, different food. Tasting different dishes could be as similar as the experience of traveling but even around the world, there is one dish that could be altered in so many ways - the pizza. A Mediterranean find around "Imma eat that" is a recipe that is all about pizza and Mediterranean fused in one. 


Ingredients:

For pizza crust
1/3 cup + 1 tablespoon oat flour, packed
1 tablespoon ground flaxseed
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/8 teaspoon baking powder
1/8 teaspoon Italian seasoning, dried
1 egg


For Tzatziki Sauce
3 tablespoons plain greek yogurt
2 heaping tablespoons cucumber, chopped into short matchsticks
scant 1/8 teaspoon dried dill
1 teaspoon lemon juice
Other Pizza Toppings
3 kalamata olives, sliced in half
1 quarter of a artichoke (from a jar), chopped
1/2 medium tomato, thinly sliced into 6 slices
2 heaping tablespoons feta
1 green onion, chopped


Directions: 

For the pizza crust
Preheat oven to 375F.
In a bowl, mix together oat flour, ground flaxseed, baking soda, baking powder and Italian seasoning. Add in the egg. Stir until a dough is formed. Roll dough into a ball and set aside.
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and sprinkle with flour. Roll/press the ball of dough into a THIN circle. Bake for 10 minutes.


For the toppings
Make tzatziki sauce by combining greek yogurt, cucumber sticks, dill and lemon juice. After pizza crust has baked for 10 minutes, remove it from the oven and spread out tzatzitki sauce over the crust. Top with tomato slices then kalamata olives, artichoke and feta. Bake for 10 more minutes. Garnish with green onions and serve.
