Squash & Broccoli Pizza Base with Pomodoro Sauce

I love pizza - being brought up in Brazil, where the Italian food influence is huge, contributed to my passion to a good pizza. But of course along my professional years as a health coach, I learned how to transform a heavy carbohydrate pizza recipe into a paradise of veggie intake and good fats.

This recipe is my twist on a classic pomodoro pizza . It's super easy, full of flavour and fibre, and a great way to add some extra veggies into your meals. Not to mention that it is simply very very low in carbs... which is a contradiction if we talk about a traditional pizza.

Simply blitz the base ingredients in a food processor, bake for 20 mins, add your toppings and you're done! I like to mix up my toppings, so feel free to experiment with whatever you have in the fridge. You'll see here what I added onto this pizza but "Listen your healthy gut" LOL


For the base:

  • 1 butternut squash (roasted)

  • 350gr rolled oats

  • 300g raw broccoli

  • 2 eggs

  • 1 tsp garlic powder

  • 1 tsp sea salt

For the sauce:

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

  • 1 large white onion diced

  • 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper

  • 2 cloves garlic minced

  • 3 whole peeled tomatoes

  • 6 basil leaves

  • kosher salt to taste

  • ground black pepper to taste

For the topping:

  • 150gr of three types of cheese

  • Tomatoes

  • Rucola


The base

  1. Pre-heat the oven to 200°C. Peel and remove the seeds from your butternut squash, then chop it into chunks. Drizzle it with a little olive oil and mix it with broccoli and roast in a baking tray for 20 minutes.

  2. Once cooked, mix the roasted veggies with the rest of the ingredients in a food processor and mix it all until smooth.

  3. Transfer the mixture to a lined baking tray and form into a pizza base (whatever shape you like!) by flattening the dough with your hands, making the edges slightly higher. Note that the dough will be a lot stickier than a traditional dough, so don’t worry. Bake the dough in the oven for 20 minutes.

The sauce

  1. While the base is cooking, make your sauce. Simply blitz together all of the ingredients in a food processor or high speed blender.

The Topping

  1. Spread the sauce into the baked base

  2. Place the cheese and tomatoes

  3. Bake for another 15min on 200°C

Enjoy it!
