Gluten free oat pizza with 2 toppingsJump to Recipe
Its not that warm here for outdoor grilling parties yet. So I have been whipping up a Pizza or 2 every now and then. Using wheat bases for some and trying out gf bases for some. The ones on this post are all glutenfree. Some were made a few weeks back and some recently. I thought I will put up a post with the pictures that I had.
The pizza bases in the pictures uses the White Oat loaf or Focaccia dough(both are almost similar doughs). It can also be replaced with my rustic wheat pizza base or the Everyday sandwich loaf dough. for a with gluten version.
- 1/2 cup (90 g) red lentils
- 1 cup (250 ml) of water
- 2 cloves of garlic
- 2 Tablespoons sesame seeds or tahini
- 1/2 teaspoon (0.5 teaspoon) cumin
- 1/2 teaspoon (0.5 teaspoon) paprika or cayenne or to taste
- 1/2 teaspoon (0.5 teaspoon) lemon juice
- 1-2 Tablespoons (1 Tablespoons) extra virgin olive oil.
- 2/3 teaspoon (0.67 teaspoon) salt or to taste
- Soak 1/2 cup red lentils for half an hour(You can skip soaking since red lentils do cook quite quickly). Drain the water
- Cook in about 1 cup of water covered pan for 15 minutes on low-medium or 1 pressure cooker whistle.
- The lentils should be tender but not entirely mashed, Add 2 cloves of garlic to the hot lentils and let sit to cool a bit. (the garlic will loose some of the raw smell this way if you dont like the raw garlic)
- Add the cooked lentils and other ingredients to a blender. Blend until smooth
For example, funding for research in organic farming would be cut to almost nothing, while corn growers, who have received $73.8 billion in subsidies in the last 15 years, would get even more now. Subsidized GMO corn is used to produce cheap high-fructose corn syrup, a substance that even Vice President Joe Biden says is more likely to kill an American than terrorism.
This heavily subsidized genetically modified corn is also fed to livestock in factory farms and feedlots — at unfairly reduced prices.
“Factory farms pose a serious public health hazard, so why are they subsidized by public money?” asks Food Revolution Summit speaker Dr. Neal Barnard. “These facilities pump out high-fat, high-cholesterol meat products and often pollute waterways — yet they also receive generous subsidies under the Farm Bill. We want Congress to stop rewarding facilities that endanger public health.”
These subsidies aren’t just costing U.S. taxpayers and enriching big agribusiness. They are also having a devastating impact on the health of millions of people.
Thanks for posting this!
I made the hummus, but not the pizza last weekend – without oil and using
ground sunflower seeds instead of sesame.
healthy and delicious
Thank you, Richa! Excellent post. And those pizzas…WOW!! My mouth is watering. Thank you for sharing with us on AFW.

All your pizzas look absolutely delicious, and I love all the wonderful crust ideas and recipe links you included! I also like the sound of your delicious and nutritious lentil hummus.
o wow that pizza looks so good! I need to give that a try, the lentil hummus with the curry sounds awesome. Definitely saving this for next week’s dinner plans!
Thanks Kristina! the curry oneis almost a complete meal!:)
pizza is great… eating anything in excess is not optimal for your health. balance is the key to life.
Okay, I am seriously hungry now!! Don’t fret over re-using cooking supplies…I think we all do it to be cost effective ☺ I would like to thank you for sharing your recipe in our recipe hop this week. I have enjoyed your recipe and am bookmarking so I can come back and get the recipes for your different crusts ☺
Hey even I reuse my parchment as well as foil. 🙂 I think us Indians are natural recyclers, that reusing habit is ingrained in our genes because of the culture and the way we’re brought up.
All your pizzas look amazingly delicious. I love the whole rustic look (even I made rustic bread today :)), just feels so warm and welcoming. Like home. 🙂
yeah its probably ingrained in me somewhere. i dont even like to use a fresh parchment just for pictures. 🙂
This looks amazing. It’s a much better, more grown up version of a concoction my college roommate used to cook up in our shared studio apartment with what was generally left in our fridge the day before pay day: whole wheat pitas, salsa, hummus, and sometimes a little cheese. This looks infinitely better and infinitely healthier.
Not 1, but 2 pizzas?!?! Pretty impressed over here! That tempeh one looks ravishing, and the crust is nice and thin like I like it. Great recipes!
Oh. And why have I not made lentil hummus before? I’ve tried many other beans, but have not tried lentils. This is a must-make!
Thanks Kristy!I love the lentil hummus some days. its lighter and easily converted to a daal(soup) if any is leftover.
Love the tempeh curry one! Looks really yummy!

I love parchment but am too hasty/clumsy/ ie i always tear mine or destroy it before I can even get a second use 🙂
This pizza collection looks amazing Richa – you just provided me with a ton of inspiration for our pizza fridays!
Thanks Heather:) the cookie ones last really long:) i have your burgers lined up for my next burger party.. if it gets warmer than 50 here anytime soon . pfft.
Spice up the Curry
interesting pizza recipe
i always use parchment, too! i never thought to reuse it, though, so i will definitely have to start doing that!
all of these pizzas look fantastic! dayv is always craving pizza, and there is only one good gf crust he likes. i’ve been meaning to try your foccacia recipe anyway, and now i have even more of a reason!! one question- the recipe says 7 tbsp of oats, ground. is the 7 tbsp before or after it’s been ground?
i use mine for like 6-8 times on avg.:) its just there on my baking sheets until it gets messy or tears.
its 7 Tbsp ground. keep like 1/2 cup(8 tbsps) ground and ready:) let me know how it turns out.. you you can ping me for questions fb.. am usually online.. or you can make it on videochat on fb;)
omigosh, that would be SO FUN to chat while making it 😉
You know I have an addiction to hummus…and your amazing recipes 🙂 You always inspire me Richa and the information you provide is stellar my friend!
I reuse my parchment too, that stuff is too expensive:-) Your pizzas look gorgeous! I love the idea of using a lentil hummus, it sounds wonderful! Hugs, Terra
wow that looks SOOO delicious! i’m craving pizza now! haha…thanks for sharing!
