  • 2 cloves garic
  • 1 tsp wholegrain mustard
  • Pinch Pink Himalayan Salt and black pepper

  • 1 tsp Pink Himalayan Salt
  • 1/4 cup water

For the beetroot hummus

  • 200 g of cooked beetroot or 1 pack of organic vac packed beetroot
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • 2 peeled garlic cloves
  • 1-2 tbsp tahini
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • Hand full of toasted walnuts or hazelnuts
  • 1/2 tsp. cumin seeds
  • Pink Himalayan sea & pepper

Toppings

  • Toasted walnuts
  • Olives
  • Rocket

Instructions

To make the cashew cheese

  • Really easy. Just add all the ingredients to your food processor and blitz until smooth and creamy.

The make the flatbread pizza base

  • To make the buckwheat flatbread; pre-heat a griddle pan (or frying pan) so that its nice and hot.
  • 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.
  • 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).
  • The flatbread will literally cook in a couple of minutes, simply flip it over when the underside is charring and cook on the other side a minute longer.

To make the beetroot hummus

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

To make the pizza

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

    Hey Niki!

    Thanks for sharing the recipes 🙂 After trying countless recipes, this was by far the easiest to execute. To the point and easy to follow directions. The flatbread turned out perfect.

    Have a great holiday 🙂

    Sincerely,

    Jamie

    • Hi Jamie, I’m so glad that you liked the recipe. Thank you so much! Niki xo

  • Laila Hopkins

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

    • 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.
