Oat Crust Pizza



2 cups Oat flour

1 cup Whole wheat flour

1 1/2 cup All purpose flour

2 tsp Dried yeast

1/2 tsp Sugar

1/4 tsp Salt

3 tbsp Olive oil

1 1/4 cup Water

2 tbsp Semolina (optional)

Tomato sauce

1 1/2 cup Chopped canned tomatoes

6 cloves Garlic (chopped)

1 tbsp Dried oregano and thyme

Season to taste


1 cup Cheddar cheese

2 cups Mozzarella cheese

Toppings of your choice



  1. To make the dough add the water, yeast, sugar, 2 tbsp of the flour mxi in a large bowl and mix together. Add the remaining flour, salt, olive oil and mix together using a fork. Bring together in the bowl until a shaggy dough is formed.
  2. Turn out onto the kitchen counter and knead the dough until it is soft and elastic.
  3. Set aside in an oiled bowl, cover and leave to rise for 40 mins.
  4. To make the tomato sauce place the chopped tomatoes, garlic, dried herbs and olive olive in a sauce pot. Bring the mixture to a boil and leave to simmer for 15 mins until thickened. Season with salt and pepper as needed.
  5. Once the dough has doubled in size, divide into 3 portions and get ready to assemble.
  6. In your pizza pan drizzle a little olive oil and sprinkle semolina (this adds crunch to the pizza), place a portion into each pan and using your fingers, spread the dough out.
  7. Add the tomato sauce, be generous. Add cheddar cheese, go with any toppings you like and top with mozzarella cheese.
  8. Bake in a preheated oven on maximum heat for 14-15 mins until the bottom of the pizza is golden and dry, the cheese has melted and the sides have puffed up.



  • I make my oat flour at home by blending oats until it's a fine powder.
  • The oven must be scorching hot hence preheat it for at least 30 mins at the highest it can go.
  • Don't over do the toppings as this will affect how long it will take for the pizza to bake.
  • If you want a golden color on the top put the griller on and leave the pizza at the top most rack of the oven for a few seconds.
  • Do not open the oven too much as this will affect the cooking time. The hotter the oven the better the pizza.
