I’m super excited to have teamed up with Sarah Ann Macklin again to bring you a delicious (and super quick recipe).

These mini socca (gram flour) pizzas are a staple in my kitchen as they can literally be whipped up in minutes and the topping options are endless.

I love pizza as much as the next person, but they can be a little limiting in terms of plant-based toppings, so I’ve included some of my favourites here; kale pesto with juicy mushrooms, a more classic tomato with roast peppers and pine nuts and a gorgeously green option with pea & mint hummus and charred asparagus and courgette.

Not included, but a sprinkle of my ‘cashew Parmesan‘ is amazing.

I hope you enjoy xx

Sarah Ann says;
It is understandable, that after a long day whether it be work, family lives or social lives, it’s tempting to spend money on convenience fast food or even what we believe to be a ‘healthy’ option on Delievroo. Even the healthiest options can still be loaded with added sugars, salts and fats, which we are unaware of. Therefore, food preparation and planning are key. I always recommend planning your lunches and dinner on a Sunday and ordering the food you need. I can guarantee you will save money and follow a healthier diet.

With people spending more time scrolling through Instagram than cooking, Rebel Recipes and I have come up with a 20-minute meal recipe, done in 3 ways to help keep time to a minimum and the fun is still in cooking! Ditch the Delieveroo greasy pizzas. For some wholesome, all veggie healthy mini socca pizzas. This is a great mid-week recipe to invite your friends around for a catch up whilst digging into these delights! Why not swap the toppings every week? See which one is your favourite?

This dish is easy and versatile to make. The recipe is packed full of fibre to support our gut health, as many of us are not gaining the average 30g a day if fibre. The base is also gluten-free, which can therefore allow cooking for people with allergies a lot easier. The toppings are loaded full of veggies, again increasing your fibre intake and an abundance of vitamins. This meal is a great way to sneak in your 5 a day without even trying.

        I made the roasted peppers one and it was delicious. I found the longer I let the batter stand the better the pizzas. I also made a ‘mushroom pizza’ after being jealous of my friend’s one in the pub. I put on cashew cheese and garlic and thyme mushrooms and it was delicious too. Great recipe for healthy pizzas :).

        1. Hi Miranda
          I absolutely agree, if you can let the batter stand it’s great.
          Love your cashew cheese and mushroom topping!
          Love
