Ingredients

DESERT PIZZA BASE

  • 200g / 1¼ cups buckwheat, soaked in water
  • 2 bananas
  • 2 tablespoons chia seeds

CASHEW CARAMEL FILLING

  • 100g / ¾ cup cashews
  • ½ a vanilla pod / 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 5 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 5 tablespoons coconut oil, melted

CHOCOLATE HAZELNUT TOPPING

  • 100g / ¾ cup hazelnuts
  • 8 tablespoons cocoa nibs / powder
  • 5 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 5 tablespoons coconut oil, melted

HEALTHY DESSERT PIZZA TOPPING

  • A rainbow of fresh fruit chopped up & a few small mint leaves.
  • For the photos I used strawberries, apricots, blueberries & kiwi.

Instructions

  1. Soak the buckwheat for at least 15 mins in water, an hour is best, then drain,
  2. Add the buckwheat to a blender / food processor with the banana and chia seeds.
  3. Whizz until all is broken up and combined.
  4. Spread onto non stick sheets to make two 8 inch pizza bases.
  5. Either follow the cooked or raw version to set the bases:
  6. Cooked: Cook for about 20 mins at 180℃ until firm, then flip and cook for about 5 more mins until crispy.
  7. Raw: Dehydrate for 8 hours at 32℃, then flip and dehydrate for another 4 hours.
  8. Blend together all the cashew caramel filling ingredients until smooth.
  9. You may need to add a bit of water to make it totally smooth. Just add a tablespoon at a time.
  10. Spread the caramel on top of one of the pizza bases. Then place the other pizza base on top.
  11. To make the chocolate hazelnut sauce blend all together the same way as the caramel. You may want to grind up the nuts and nibs first if your blender isn’t powerful.
  12. Spread the chocolate sauce on top of the healthy dessert pizza, then sprinkle on the fruit and mint leaves.
  13. This vegan and gluten free dessert pizza will last for 4 days in the fridge and makes 10 generous portions.
