Sweet Potato Lentil Flour Pizza Crust

This sweet potato lentil flour pizza crust is a delicious healthy spin on vegan & gluten free pizza.

The all-time most popular recipe on the blog is this lentil pizza crust. I don’t even know how that happened. That pizza crust was a totally spontaneous creation. Something that I noticed was that a few people were finding that pizza crust by searching for “lentil flour pizza crust”. That prompted me to make a pizza crust with lentil flour, instead of red lentils.

This pizza crust was super easy to make too. Just 3 ingredients (no prizes for guessing which ingredients 😉 ), mashed together and baked. I topped this pizza with a chunky olive spread (I was aiming to make an olive tapenade but didn’t have enough olives, so it turned out chunky…still delish though), capiscums, avocado and basil. So so tasty!
