This is one of those recipes where I add breakfast to the title because it’s slightly sweet but not quite dessert.
This recipe is beyond forgiving. If you’re a cinnamon monger like me, then double the cinnamon. Feeling spicy? Add some raw cacao and a tiny pinch of cayenne. Want to live on the wild side? Double the maple syrup and treat yourself. Because let’s be honest: a “drizzle” of maple syrup is an invitation to treat this pizza like a pancake.
Scoot your bottom over to Whole Foods and buy all the fresh sunflower seed butter in the land while you still can. You won’t find this stuff in the jar for less than three times the price. With nine grams of plant-powered protein, 20 percent of your recommended vitamin E, and four grams of cholesterol-lowering fiber per serving, this stuff is a nutritional powerhouse.
