Buckwheat Flatbread Pizza with Beetroot Hummus and Cashew Cheese

I love pizza! And this is my absolute favourite – a big buckwheat flatbread pizza base with earthy and nutty beetroot hummus, topped with creamy cashew cheese, olives, toasted walnuts and peppery rocket.

I’ve posted so many pics of this on my Instagram account because this is one of my all time favourite quick and easy meals, especially when I’ve just got home from work, starving and want something super tasty!

So for all you lovelies who have asked for the recipe here it is! Finally in one place rather than on separate posts.

Enjoy! Love and hugs Niki xx

Cashew cheese

  1. Really easy, just add all the ingredients to your food processor and blitz until smooth and creamy.

Flatbread Pizza Base

  1. To make the buckwheat flatbread; pre-heat a griddle pan (or frying pan) so that its nice and hot.
  2. In a bowl mix the flour, oil, baking powder, salt & pepper and then add the water. Mix to form a dough and knead a little so that it comes together and then divide into two.
  3. On a floured chopping board roll out the dough and then place on a griddle pan (griddle pans work the best as you get lovely charred stripes on the flatbread but a frying pan also works).
  4. The flatbread will literally cook in a couple of minutes, simply flip it over when the underside is starting to char and cook on the other side a minute or so longer.

Beetroot Hummus

  1. Pre-heat the oven to gas mark 4 and then place your nuts on a baking tray to toast slightly (this should take aprox 5 minutes, keep your eye on them to make sure they don’t burn). Allow to cool.
  2. If using pre cooker beetroot drain the beetroots and then tip them into your blender.
    Add the garlic, lemon juice, tahini, cumin seeds, nuts and olive oil.
  3. Blitz until smooth (aprox 2 minutes). Season to taste

To make the pizza

  1. Pre-make the cashew cheese and beetroot hummus.
  2. Griddle you flatbread them top with lots of beetroot hummus, cashew cheese, olives, walnuts and peppery rocket.

    Niki, your pizzas are the best! I love buckwheat flour in baked goods

      Thanks Maya! I’m quite keen on yours too! ????????????

  2. […] I love the gorgeous green colour from the spinach and peas and you’re getting some great nutrients from the iron in the spinach, protein rich peas and the high levels of vitamin C in cauliflower. And it’s tastes delicious! I would either eat this on its own or with some of my favourite buckwheat flatbreads. […]

    I used the flatbread recipe to make a more traditional pizza and really loved it! Thanks for posting. The flatbreads made a decent gluten free pizza!

    Wow! We had the buckwheat flatbread pizza with beetroot hummus & cashew cheese for lunch yesterday, it is sooo tasty, we loved it and it’s easy to make! Truly grateful to have found your site Niki, will be using many more of your vegan recipes I’m sure and plan to tell all my friends and family about your site too! Thanks.

    Hi Nikki, this recipe looks delicious. Do you think the flat breads will be able to be frozen?

    • Niki on July 15, 2017 at 4:58 am

      Hi Laila
      I haven’t tried, but I don’t think they would be at their best when defrosted.
      What I do like to do is make a bigger batch of the dough and keep it in the fridge wrapped up or in a container until I need it.
      Love Niki xxx
