PPPPP Pizza! (Free From)

Pizza! DEGF (Dairy. Egg. Gluten. Free.)

Happy weekend everyone! What’s better than chocolate and cake? okay.. that didn’t work! ๐Ÿ˜› What savoury food is akin to chocolate and cake!? Yes, pizza of course! Hang on.. this is Life Diet Health… why are we talking pizza? ๐Ÿ˜› ๐Ÿ™‚ย ย  P for pizza for my A-Z Challenge ๐Ÿ™‚

Ooo when I clicked publish I got a message… this is post 100! Happy 100 posts to Life Diet Health!!!

Sorry.. got distracted there and had to do a quick update! ๐Ÿ™‚ Anyway…this my friends and fellow bloggers is the ‘P’ that I mentioned I was making when I posted my D post (donuts). This is the ‘bizarre’ but ‘delicious’ concoction that totally works! ๐Ÿ™‚ This has a yummy ‘healthy’ base which your munchers will never guess what the secret ingredient is… no, it’s not cauliflower but if you want that recipe I can post that sometime too! ๐Ÿ™‚ The secret ingredient is… carrot!!! Yes! I know! Carrot!!! When this was mentioned to me I was VERY sceptical to say the least but you know what? My son won’t eat carrot (unless it’s in cake) but he munched his way through this pizza last night! I have made several variations of this now and I’ll let you decide onย your favourite! ๐Ÿ™‚ Choose from base 1-4 or make one of each! ๐Ÿ™‚ Have a great weekend and I’ll be back on Monday with ‘Q’ !


  • Base 1
  • 400g carrots
  • 60g chickpea flour
  • pinch of salt
  • ———————-
  • Base 2
  • 15g chia seeds soaked in 75ml water (for ten minutes)
  • 400g carrots
  • 60g coconut flour
  • pinch of salt
  • ————————-
  • Base 3
  • 400g carrots
  • 60g porridge oats blitzed into flour
  • pinch of salt
  • ————————-
  • Base 4
  • 400g carrot pulp (might be as much as 1kg of carrots)
  • 200g porridge oats blitzed into flour
  • pinch of salt
  • ————————-
  • 50g tomato puree
  • 100ml hot water
  • 1 teaspoon oregano
  • 1 teaspoon of coconut oil
  • 1 large onion (150g) sliced
  • 1 teaspoon coconut sugar
  • handful of sweetcorn
  • Sliced or chopped fresh pepper
  • other toppings of choice –ย tomatoes, asparagus, mushrooms, olives,ย etc.
  • cashews ground (or cheese / cheese substitute grated)


  1. For all bases: Peel the carrots, thenย top and tail.

    For bases 1, 2 & 3 grate the carrots. For base 4, put the carrots in a juicer.

  2. For bases 1,2 & 3: You need to get some of the liquid out of the carrots. You can either (with clean hands)! squeeze small handfuls of the carrot OR put the carrots in a clean muslin cloth and squeeze.

    You don’t need to get all the juice out… just make it a bit less wet!

  3. For base 4: Drink the carrot juice

    and weigh the resulting pulp.

  4. For all bases: Add the remaining ingredients and mix well to combine.

    Flatten and press onto a greased tray shaping into a round or rectangle.

    Some of the bases hold together and shape better than others but as long as you can make a base shape (approximately half a cm thick) don’t worry too much about the edges!

  5. Put the bases in the oven on Gas Mark 4 (350f / 180c) for 10-15 minutes. The base should start to look firmer before you take it out.
  6. While the bases are cooking, prepare the tomato sauce and the toppings. Mix the tomato puree with the water and mix until you have a smooth paste. Add the oregano and set aside to cool slightly.
  7. Melt the coconut oil then add the onions. Sprinkle the sugar over and cook until brown and caramelising. Set aside.
  8. Assemble: Spread the tomato paste on the base, scatter over onions, add sweetcorn and other toppings. Top with the ground cashews (or cheese) and return to the oven for 10-15 minutes.
  9. Enjoy!

    Pizza and cake are too beautiful to compare! I love all the recipe variations and I never thought to use carrot! Great job ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Life Diet Health 19th April 2015 at 09:47

      Thank you Jennie ๐Ÿ™‚ I still can’t believe that you can’t taste the carrot… my son still doesn’t know he was eating carrots!!! ๐Ÿ˜› ๐Ÿ™‚ Hope you’re not missing Yorkshire too much! x

      • veganmiow 19th April 2015 at 12:32

        Haha! I’ll have to try this on Will and see if he notices then ๐Ÿ˜€ I should probably tone down the London slander a bit, because despite its lack of green hills it’s a fun vegany place! Haha! Hope you’re having a lovely day ๐Ÿ™‚ x

    Congrats on your 100th post! Wow, you are a busy bee! ๐Ÿ™‚ I love how pizzas look! And what a great idea, to make carrots as a base for pizza crust! Once, we we get the dehydrator (I know, it’s getting old!), I am definitely trying this! ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Life Diet Health 21st April 2015 at 17:25

      I know how amazing! 100 posts! Must really think about all that other stuff soon! I’ve not got our dehydrator yet either… I found one that looks identical to an Excalibur but a 1/4 of the price – not sure whether I should or not!? Carrots! I know! Maybe I should try experimenting with a mixture… five a day in pizza bases! ๐Ÿ™‚

    You are really productive with your blog. When we first started, we posted like every other day or so, but now I can’t find time nor peace of mind to post more than once a week. Hopefully, that’s just a phase, because working on the blog is so rewarding. The moment when I hit that ‘publish’ button… feels like a magic! ๐Ÿ™‚ And about that dehydrator business… I really don’t know. We don’t have much to choose from here. I guess for starters some cheaper could do the trick ๐Ÿ˜‰

    • Life Diet Health 22nd April 2015 at 08:32

      That’s it then Milica.. thank you! You made my decision.. going to buy it today!

      Ah yes.. but your posts are more thought out than mine! ๐Ÿ˜› Todays ‘S’ is a bit of a cheat… if I get around to finishing the post instead of chatting! It’s raw though so you can eat it! ๐Ÿ™‚

      • Delicious Peace of Mind 22nd April 2015 at 08:51

        Hopefully you will be satisfied with your purchase! ๐Ÿ™‚ I won’t distract you no more and can’t wait to see what you came up with ‘S’ ๐Ÿ™‚
