GF Pizza: Almond & Buckwheat Crust!

by Nicole on October 3, 2011

Hello Monday! Hope your weekend was restful!

I have so many random things in my pantry, some of which are used ALL of the time and others…not so much. Occasionally I’ll come across an ingredients (or 5) that I haven’t used in months…or ever, and I feel the need to use it.

This is exactly what happened when I came across buckwheat flour in my pantry. I don’t know if I’ve ever used it….so I had to change that. Mostly because I literally have no room in this kitchen, so I figure why not use some things up. Plus I need room to keep stocking up on pumpkin. Again.

I’ll usually start with my favorite blogs that are a given for successful recipes, but this time, the connection just happened. I was catching up on Oh She Glows and there it was, an almond & buckwheat pizza crust. Yes please.

This really looked good and I’m always open for a new pizza crust recipe. This doesn’t look like a lot, but really the crust is very filling. I had this slice below with a salad and a small second piece. It’s really deceiving how filling it is, but that’s what a half almond meal crust will do. This has a very nutty taste (obviously…). It’s not like a typical white crust, has a much deeper flavor. I really, really enjoyed this and so did Danny and my sister.

dry ingredients

dough all mixed

rolled out between slipat and wax paper

baked and browned at edges

broiled for 3-4 minutes: 1/2 cheese, 1/2 no cheese

If you do make this please let me know. What changes would you make?

Off to take a workout class and meet with clients! Have an amazing day!

I love thin crust pizza! I bet the almond and buckwheat went well together. I’ve done that for pancakes before too and they were so good. The pizza looks delicious!
