Grainless Taco Pizza

What happens when you combine the best two foods together? You get grainless taco pizza for #tacotuesday! Loved collabing with my galpal, Rachael Molenda on this one!

INGREDIENTS

Pizza Crust

  • 3/4 cup hemp seeds
  • 1/4 cup ground flax
  • 1/2 cup tapioca starch
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • pinch of sea salt

Walnut Meat
(feel free to skip this and use organic ground chicken, turkey or beef)

  • 1 cup walnuts
  • 1 tsp tamari
  • 1.5 tbsp chilli powder
  • 1 tsp cumin

Toppings

  • 1/3 cup salsa
  • 3/4 cup goat cheddar
  • 5-7 cherry tomatoes, sliced
  • 1/2 green pepper, sliced
  • 1 jalapeno, sliced
  • 1/4 cup black beans
  • 3 tbsp cilantro, chopped

Avocado Drizzle
(feel free to simply place sliced avocado on top)

  • 1 avocado
  • 2 tbsp lime juice
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt

DIRECTIONS

  1. Preheat oven to 425 F. Line a pizza stone or baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Add hemp, flax seed and tapioca starch to a food processor. Pulse a few times until most of the hemp pieces are gone.
  3. In a mixing bowl, combine hemp seed, flax seed and tapioca starch. Mix well, then stir in eggs, apple cider vinegar and baking soda.
  4. Roll the dough into a ball with our hands and place it in the centre of the pizza stone. Flatten and shape the dough with your hands. *Note* Wetting your hands with cold water makes it easier to work with. Bake for 10 minutes.
  5. While the crust is baking, prepare the walnut meat or your preferred protein alternative. Place all walnut meat ingredients in a food processor. Pulse until crumbly (don’t pulse for too long, or else it will turn into butter!)
  6. Remove the crust from the oven, then spread salsa on as a flat layer for the sauce. Top with goat cheddar, then add tomatoes, green pepper, jalapeño, black beans and walnut meat. Place back in the oven for 12-15 minutes until the crust begins to turn golden.
  7. To make the avocado drizzle, add all ingredients to a food processor. Blend until smooth. Alternatively, simply slice avocado and lay pieces on top of pizza.
  8. When the pizza is done baking, add cilantro and pipe avocado drizzle on top or lay the avocado slices on top at this time.
