If you’re craving pizza (heck, who isn’t?!), here’s a high-fiber crust powered by the tiny yet oh-so-amazing chia seed. A one-tablespoon serving offers four grams of fiber, two grams of protein, and 150 percent of your daily omega-3s. If you’re not into the gelatinous consistency when it’s added to smoothies or made into pudding, then you’re going to love this recipe.
When baked in this basil-garlic whole-wheat crust, chia seeds add a subtle yet satisfying poppy crunch with each bite. Other than that, this tastes like regular pizza dough, but because it’s made without yeast, it takes less time in the kitchen since the dough doesn’t have to rise. This makes for a slightly denser and drier crust, but equally delicious. Get creative with toppings, and enjoy!
This recipe makes one pizza with regular crust, but you could split the dough and make two thin-crust pizzas instead.
