With these easy Vegan Pizza Bites, you get all of the delicious flavors of pizza in bite-size form. These pizza snack balls are grain-free and gluten-free, made with almond flour and sun-dried tomatoes. Makes 10-14 balls
Add the sundried tomato and almond flour to a food processor and process until the sundried tomatoes are a coarse meal.
Add the rest of dry ingredients and pulse a few times to combine.
The mixture should now be like well moistened crumbs that should hold together when you press them. If not add a bit more olive oil. If too crumbly (if using almond meal) you might need to add a tsp or so regular flour. **Transfer the mix to a bowl and refrigerate for 15 minutes. Remove the bowl from the refrigerator and press and roll into balls. Place the balls on parchment baking sheet and bake at 300F(150 c) for 12 minutes.
After baking, let them cool completely and store in the refrigerator up to 2 weeks.
Oilfree: omit oil, and use a flax egg for binding. 1 tbsp flax seed meal mixed with 2.5 tbsp water.
You can skip the crushed red pepper if you can't tolerate spice or make these for little ones.
I used a small food processor as the volume of ingredients is just right for it. If you only have a big food processor, you can double the amount of ingredients to allow for easy processing.
Instead of the basil and oregano listed, you can use 1.5 tsp Italian herbs/Italian seasoning.
** sun dried tomato sometimes can be too dry and the mixture might not bind well. Add a flax egg and flour if needed
