Show some love with this heart shaped pizza <3 topped with a tasty balsamic beet spread (I promise you can't taste the beet!). Vegan, gluten free.
  • 2 cups dry red lentils
  • 2 cups water
  • 1 tsp dried rosemary
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • 1 garlic clove
Beet spread
  • ⅓ cup water
  • 1 cup cashews
  • 1 garlic clove
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 2 tbs balsamic vinegar
  • ⅓ cup grated beetroot
  • Strawberries
  • Radishes
  • Basil
  • Or other toppings as desired
  1. Blend all pizza ingredients in a high speed speed blender (I use an Optimum 9400) until the lentils are broken down.
  2. Preheat a frying pan (I use a cast-iron griddle plate) over a low-medium heat - grease with a little splash of olive oil if needed.
  3. Spoon a few tablespoons of batter onto the frying pan (if making mini-pizzas - otherwise pour on about ½ cup batter) and use the spoon to shape into a heart.
  4. Fry for about 2-3 minutes, until the top is fairly cooked through, and flip.
  5. Fry for a further 2 minutes on the reverse side, then transfer to a plate while you repeat with the remaining batter.
Beet spread
  1. Blend all beet spread ingredients in a high speed blender until smooth.
  2. Spread onto the pizzas.
  3. Top with toppings of your choice (I used strawberries, basil and radishes).
  4. OPTIONAL: You may bake for 10 minutes but I really enjoyed the raw vegetables on top.
