Okay, guys. A lot of experimentation went into this magical gluten free & vegan crust!
This was an effort to combine my love of millet & my need for gluten free flatbread/pizza crust alternatives in my life. And, boy was I happy with how this turned out!
Millet is a wonderful alkaline seed grain...full of protein, fiber &
much needed B vitamins, making this a beautiful & healthy
flatbread-pizza crust! Top it off with any of your desired ingredients (cheesy garlic breadsticks below!) & sink into its nourishing deliciousness...
(Cheesy Garlic Breadsticks W/ Millet Flatbread-Pizza Crust (Gluten Free, Vegan Option)
Millet Flatbread-Pizza Crust (GF, Vegan):
1 cup millet, soaked overnight (I use Bob's Red Mill)
1/3 cup water
1 tsp salt
1 tsp freshly ground pepper
1 tbs Hungarian paprika
1 tsp baking powder
2 garlic cloves
Rinse millet well, put in a jar or bowl and cover with cold water, cover and let sit overnight.
Preheat oven to 425°F.
Rinse and drain soaked millet. Place in a food processor with
remaining ingredients. Blend until a smooth batter has formed.
In a round pan (I used a 9" cake pan), place a sheet of well oiled parchment paper. Pour batter onto parchment paper and spread evenly if need be.
Bake for 15 minutes. Remove from oven and carefully flip over (use a second sheet of oiled parchment to flip onto if need be). Bake for 10 minutes more.
Remove crust from oven and top with desired toppings (for my cheesy garlic breadsticks, see below). Bake for 5 minutes more, then broil top for a few minutes until bubbling.
Cool, slice, and enjoy!
Cheesy Garlic Breadsticks:
1 millet flatbread-pizza crust (see above)
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 cup cheddar cheese, shredded (this works great w/ vegan cheese alternatives too, I like Daiya)
Heat olive oil over medium heat. Saute minced garlic for a few minutes.
Top pre-baked millet crust (see above) with sauteed garlic & cheese.
Bake for 5 minutes, then broil until bubbling & desired crispness is achieved.
Delicious as is, or dipped in ranch (I love Annie's)!
Cool, slice & enjoy!
