Buckwheat Breakfast Pizza

By Sunday, October 06, 2013 , , , , ,

This is essentially like a giant pancake; a breakfast pizza, loaded with delicious toppings. It's easy to make, and you can top it with whatever your heart desires, although I strongly recommend mashed berry compote for the base sauce, and sliced banana. It's the perfect way to start a lazy Saturday or Sunday, and you can double the recipe for do an easy breakfast for two


You will need:
1/2 cup (60g) buckwheat flour
1/2 cup (125ml) almond milk (or other non dairy milk of choice)
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 tsp baking powder
1 cup frozen berries of choice
1 banana

Other toppings of choice

Preheat your oven to 170C and make the base by combining the flour, milk, vanilla extract, baking powder in a bowl. Cut your banana roughly into thirds, setting 2/3 of it aside, and mashing the remaining third. Add the mashed banana to the base mixture and mix well. Heat a frying pan over a low heat and add a little coconut oil, then pour in your batter. Allow to cook for 3-4 minutes until the bottom of the base is cooked, which you will know happens when the top bubbles slightly.  Once the top starts to bubble slightly, remove from the heat, and place in the oven so that the top of the base become crisp and slightly golden. Mash your frozen berries in a bowl, and spread them on top of your pizza base, and evenly place your banana sliced on top too. Place in the oven for 5-10 minutes, or until the berry sauce dries out a little and the banana is soft and slightly caramelised. Transfer to a plate and top with whatever your heart desires, then dig in!

  2. Hey Siobhan! :) Just made this in the morning before my tennis tournament and it was delicious! I used the frozen berries for the base as well as the banana slices but topped mine with tahini and pepita seed spread instead as I ran out of PB. Your recipes are fabulous, well done! -Maria

    1. I wouldn't recommend it, it's too thick and the texture is more like a large pancake than a pizza. Pizza dough needs yeast for the right taste too!

  7. Do you just put the pan with the base in the oven? Or transfer it on a baking dish?

  8. Could I use whole wheat flour or plain flour instead of buckwheat flour?

    1. You would need to change the amount of liquid you use, because those flours act differently to buckwheat flour and it might be soggy and not cook properly :)

  9. I've been wanting to do this for ages and today that I thought I had all ingredients it appears I only have fresh berries... Do you think they would they work as well or would they dry out in the oven ?

    1. If you mash them up then I am sure they would work the same!

  10. Amazing recipe! Do you need to put the pan with the base in the oven? I've got a small oven so is there an other way? x

    1. Maybe flip the pancake out onto something else like a tray and put that in the oven?
