Total Time 35 mins


  • 2 cup dry red lentils
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 clove of garlic
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp dried oregano leaves


  • Blend all ingredients (I used my Optimum 9400 high speed blender) until the lentils are thoroughly broken down.
  • Preheat a frying pan (greased with a little bit of olive oil if needed) over low-med heat.
  • Pour about ¾ cup of batter into the frying pan and spread with the back of a spoon (it will look like a huge pancake).
  • Fry for about 3 minutes or until top is dry/cooked through.
  • Flip and cook for a further 2 minutes.
  • Repeat with remaining batter to make 4-5 pizza crusts.
  • Preheat the oven to 180C/350F.
  • Place the pizza crusts on baking trays and top with sauce & toppings of your choice, and bake for around 10 minutes.
  • Slice and serve.
