Gluten Free Potato Hummus Pizza

Pizza's certainly are the best snack on a lovely Friday night. I know that a lot of people think gluten free pizza crusts can be the trickiest thing on earth, but I'm sure that with this recipe I'll convince you to change your mind! Pizza is one of my absolute favourite things – and guess what, so is hummus. So, as much as I was craving pizza this evening, but without any tomatoes in the fruit basket, I was "forced" to try and combine the two dishes.

The result was absolutely phenomenal. The incredible rich flavour of the slightly crispy crust, combined with the great-tasting and flavour-boosting hummus was such an perfect combination it's almost impossible to describe it with words. Well now I surely know what I'm going to make for dinner next Friday.

Gluten Free Potato Hummus Pizza

Makes 1 large pizza

For the pizza dough
4 small potatoes, boiled until soft
1/2 cup brown rice flour
a pinch of sea salt
1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
about 1/2 cup water

For the topping
1 tin chickpeas
2 garlic cloves
4 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
1 tbsp tahini
4 tbsp lemon juice
a pinch of salt & pepper
10 kalamata olives without stone
1/3 red onion
a small handful spinach, chopped
a handful alpha sprouts

Preheat the oven to 200°C / 390°F. Once the potatoes are ready cooked, mash them well with a potato masher. Transfer the mash into a mixing bowl, add the brown rice flour and salt, and stir in the olive oil. Finally pour in the water a little by little until the dough is coming together. Line a baking tray and spread the dough into a circle till you've reached the wanted thickness of the crust. Place in the oven and let cook for 25 minutes.
Meanwhile make the hummus. Combine chickpeas, garlic, olive oil, tahini, lemon juice and salt & pepper, and run through a hand mixer to make it into a smooth paste. Finely dice the onion, and cut the olives in half.
Once the pizza crust is out of the oven, slather on some hummus and spread out. Sprinkle over the olives, onion, spinach and alpha sprouts, cut into pizza triangles, and enjoy!
