An original, easy, fast and delicious pizza … and also … gluten free.
Ingredients for the base:
1 large glass of red lentils
Coriander or parsley (optional)
Ingredients for coverage:
Seasonal organic tomatoes
Ingredients for dressing:
1 c.s. of olive oil
a pinch of pepper
1 c.s. of rice vinegar
2 c.s. of apple concentrate
1 c.s. of white miso.
Leave the lentils to soak overnight.
If you don’t remember, just soak them for 1 hour in hot water.
Drain the lentils and reserve part of the liquid.
Crush the lentils with a little of the liquid, do not use much, just enough to allow you to crush them with a blender. Beat to form a thick textured dough.
The density should be thicker than to make crepes.
Add a pinch of salt and if you like, add a good handful of coriander or chopped parsley.
I like to add it like this, without crushing, but if you want you can crush it at the same time, in that case the pizza base will be a more greenish color.
Heat a flat pan with a little extra virgin olive oil.
Add a good saucepan of the dough, depending on the diameter of the pan you may need to add another saucepan.
Use a wet spatula to spread the dough well and cover the entire pan.
Lower the heat and let it go on medium heat.
While you can start cutting the vegetables you are going to place on top.
I have used a locally grown organic tomato sliced, a good handful of arugula and 1/2 avocado cut into strips.
When you see that the base of the pizza begins to peel off the pan by the edges and that it begins to dry, it is time to turn it around.
Use a flat and wide spatula. You can also flip it with the help of a plate, as if making an omelet.
Leave a couple of minutes on the fire while finishing the other side.
Prepare the dressing by mixing all the ingredients in a glass jar with a lid and beating well.
Place the pizza base on a plate, add the vegetables and sprinkle with the dressing.
If you like very tasty, you can spread the base with part of the dressing and then place the vegetables on top.
Serve while the base is still warm.
If you have lentil dough left over, check out this recipe and use it to make fritters, they are delicious!
Cook it with love … and take advantage of it!
