oat pizza

Easy Breakfast Pizza Crust

This hearty version calls for oatmeal and flaxseed.

“Oats are great first thing in the morning since they contain lots of satiating fiber and protein,” says Lauren Blake, RD, Columbus Ohio-based recipe developer and founder of Whole Living Lauren. Plus, cinnamon has been shown to help boost the metabolism.

Ingredients

  • 1 ½ cups rolled oats
  • 2 dates, pitted and roughly chopped
  • 3 tablespoons unsweetened coconut, shredded
  • 3 tablespoons ground flaxseed
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • ¾ cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
  • 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees and line two baking sheets with parchment paper.

  2. Add the oats, dates, shredded coconut, ground flaxseed, and cinnamon to a food processor and blend until finely chopped and fully combined.

  3. Add the almond milk and vanilla and blend until the ingredients begin sticking together and a ball starts to form. The dough will be sticky and a bit wet.

  4. Scoop the dough out of the food processor and divide in thirds, then spread into a 1-inch thick circle.

  5. Bake the crusts for eight to ten minutes, or until slightly golden. Remove from oven and let crusts cool for a few minutes.
