Roasted Vegetable Pizza Recipe With Oat Flour Crust

Roasted Vegetable Pizza with Oat Flour Crust is a one such experiment I did in a quest to include the whole grain oats along with the whole wheat flour that I generally use and the result was a very soft crust which was lightly crisp around the edges.  Instant Oats (Oatmeal), Whole Wheat Flour, Baking powder, Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Salt, Sugar, Lukewarm Water, Homemade Pizza And Pasta Sauce, Mozzarella cheese, Button mushrooms, Red Bell pepper (Capsicum), Onion, Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Pizza seasoning, Salt, Black pepper powder   Ingredients for the Oat Flour Pizza Crust 1 cup Instant Oats (Oatmeal) , ground into flour 2 cups Whole Wheat Flour 2 teaspoons Baking powder 2 tablespoons Extra Virgin Olive Oil 1 teaspoon Salt 1 tablespoons Sugar Lukewarm Water Ingredients for the Roasted Vegetable Pizza Topping 2 cups Homemade Pizza And Pasta Sauce , or tomato basil sauce 100 grams Mozzarella cheese , grated or in slices 200 grams Button mushrooms , quartered 1 Red Bell pepper (Capsicum) , thinly sliced 1 Onion , thinly slices Extra Virgin Olive Oil , as needed Pizza seasoning , or dried oregano to taste Salt , to taste Black pepper powder , coarse, freshly ground to taste     20   60     To begin making the Roasted Vegetable Pizza Recipe With Oat Flour Crust we will first make the oats flour.Grind the regular oats into a fine powder using a blender or a food processor. Oats grinds very easily and hence its super easy to make the oat flour.In a large mixing bowl, combine the oats flours and whole wheat flour, salt, sugar and baking powder. Mix well to combine.Add in the lukewarm water a little at a time to the flour and knead the dough. Add in the olive oil to the dough and knead to mix well. The dough will be very sticky after all ingredients are combined. Add in some additional wheat flour if required to make the dough smooth. Knead the dough for about 5 to 6 minutes. If you have a stand mixer you can use that as well to ease the process. Cover the dough and allow the dough to rest for about half an hour.While the dough is resting we will prepare the topping for the pizza.In a heavy bottomed pan, add in a tablespoon of olive oil. Add in the red bell pepper and onions and roast until they are tender and lightly browned.Once done add in the mushrooms and stir fry on high heat until just a bit tender. Season with required salt and crushed black pepper and keep the topping aside.After the rise, divide the dough into two halves to make two smaller pizzas or you can leave it as it is to make a large pizza. The size of the pizza will depend on how thick or thin you roll it.Preheat the oven to 220 C. Dust the pizza pans with flour and some cornmeal or semolina. This will prevent the dough from sticking to your pizza pan.Bake the crust for 5 to 7 minutes, then take out of the oven. Layer the pizza first with the sauce, then the roasted vegetables and the cheese. Place the pizza back in the oven and bake until you notice the crust is beginning to brown and the cheese is bubbling. Once baked, remove the pizza from the oven and allow it to rest for a couple of minutes before slicing and serving. You can also optionally sprinkle some oregano or pizza seasoning and serve.Enjoy the Roasted Vegetable Pizza with Oat Flour Crust with friends and family during parties or even for a weeknight dinner.You can serve Roasted Vegetable Pizza Recipe With Oat Flour Crust along with Zucchini Zoodles with mushroom Meatball Recipe, Tomato & Beetroot Soup Recipe and a dessert like Vanilla Panna Cotta Recipe with Cocoa & Mint.
