Green Hemp Pizza? This pizza is packed with protein, iron, magnesium, zinc, healthy fats & omegas! The base uses a mix of hemp protein and spelt flour. It’s fluffy, soft and doesn’t take long to prepare. Topped with a hemp pesto, vegan cheese, mushrooms and basil. I’ve partnered with @Mt_Elephant to show you how to elevate your recipes with the goodness of hemp! Give it a try, the recipe is below✨
[Makes 1 large pizza or 2 small]
2 3/4 cup spelt flour (plus more for kneading)
1/2 cup @Mt_Elephant Hemp Protein
1 tsp salt
1 1/4 tsp (7g) instant dry yeast
2 tsp brown or coconut sugar
1 tbsp @Mt_Elephant Hemp Seed Oil
1 cup (250ml) lukewarm water
Hemp Seed Pesto:
1 packed cup fresh basil
1 packed cup fresh spinach
1/2 cup @Mt_Elephant Hemp Seeds
3 tbsp @Mt_Elephant Hemp Seed Oil
2 tbsp lemon juice
2 garlic cloves
3 tbsp nutritional yeast
Pinch of salt and pepper
Add the water, dry yeast and sugar to a large bowl and rest for 5 minutes. Mix in the hemp seed oil and then sift over the spelt flour, hemp protein and salt. Combine until it forms a ball, it will be slightly sticky. Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface and knead the dough for 5 minutes. Lightly grease a large bowl with oil and place the dough in the bowl. Cover with a tea towel and allow it to rise for 30 minutes (or an hour if you have time).
In the meantime, add the pesto ingredients to a blender or food processor and blend until smooth. Once the dough has grown in size, preheat the oven to 200°c. Punch the dough to release any air and turn it over onto a lightly floured surface. Flour your hands and a rolling pin and roll the dough into a circle, then place on a baking sheet or pizza pan.
Spread the pesto onto the base, plus sprinkle with vegan cheese and add your favourite toppings (mushrooms were amazing on it). Place in the oven for 15 minutes until golden and the cheese has melted. Slice and enjoy with fresh basil on top.
