Pancake Pizza Recipe

Serves: 1
Prep time: 5 minutes
Cook time: 5 minutes

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup or 60g buckwheat flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tbsp protein powder mixed with 3 tbsp water, see notes for other egg substitutes
  • 1/2 cup plant based milk, I used almond
  • oil or cooking spray for frying
  • Optional sweetener

Method:

  1. Heat a pan and add your oil or spray
  2. Meanwhile sieve the dry ingredients, then add the ‘egg’ and milk and mix to combine.
  3. Pour the whole mix into the pan and spread it around
  4. Allow it to cook for about 2-3 minutes, until bubbles start to appear and the bottom is firm and easy to move
  5. Carefully flip and repeat
  6. Add your desired toppings while its still on the pan to allow them to heat.
  7. Carefully slide onto a plate and dig in!

Toppings suggestions

  • Sauce- maple syrup/agave/rice syrup/chocolate sauce
  • Berries- spread fresh/frozen onto the pancake while its still in the pan and they’ll melt into a ‘jam’
  • Nuts- chopped/flaked/nut butters
  • Seeds- chia/sunflower/flax/linseed/pumpkin
  • Dried fruit such as chopped figs/cranberries/raisins
  • Yoghurt- soya or coconut- plain or a fruity flavour
  • Banana- sliced into coins and place on the pancake while it’s still in the pan, sprinkle with coconut/brown sugar and it will caramelise
  • Cacao/cocoa nibs or add a tbsp of cacao/cocoa powder to the batter for a chocolate flavoured pancake

Notes

The pancake batter isn’t sweet, so if you like you can add sweetener to the mix. Personally, I prefer to keep it plain and add lots of yummy toppings.

Because of the plain-ness of the pancake, it works as savory ‘pizza’ pancake. Top with things like hummus/pesto/tomato sauce as a base, loads of roasted veggies, your fave herbs/spices and some chickpeas/lentils for extra protein.

For the egg replacer, alternatively use 1 tbsp ground flax/chia mixed with 3 tbsp water left to gel up in the fridge for 15 minutes or 1/2 a small mashed banana or 1/4 cup applesauce or 1/4 cup soya yoghurt.
