Spelt Pizza – Yeast Free

Spelt Pizza

What child doesn’t like pizza?

Being a dairy-free home (well apart from my husband) Pizza isn’t something we really eat. However, after our recent holiday when Gracie saw her Pa eat Pizza I promised I would make her one when we returned home.

Now I’m no baker, I leave that to my husband when things get too complicated! What I love about this recipe is that it’s extremely simple and you can make it right before you want to use it!

If you’re time poor use a good quality tomato pasta sauce (no refined sugar and low sodium content)  and mix with tomato paste to make a lovely rich pizza base.  As we’re dairy-free I sprinkle with nutritional yeast flakes.  Nutritional yeast contains B-vitamins, folic acid, selenium, zinc, and protein.  Spelt does contain gluten, but compared to wheat it’s much richer in nutrients and more easier to digest than wheat.

I like to make Gracie mini pizza’s out of the recipe as I think it’s easier for little hands.

    This sounds lovely and is much easier than a traditional pizza dough which takes ages!

    Such an easy recipe! It looks exactly like yeast dough pizza. And I love the touch of nutritional yeast, great way to add flavor without the cheese.
