Cooking Time




  • 1 ripe avocado
  • A squeeze lemon juice
  • 1/2 cup buckwheat flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • A pinch of sea salt
  • A twist of black pepper
  • Water

For the Toppings:

  • Olives

  2. Add a squeeze of lemon and salt and pepper to one bowl.
  3. In the other bowl, add in the buckwheat flour, baking powder, salt, and pepper. Mix thoroughly, then keep adding a little water and mixing until you get a dough (if it's too sticky add some more flour).

  5. Heat a frying pan to medium-high and carefully add the pizza base to the pan with a spatula.
