Urban Simplicity Rating: 5/5

One of the major challenges (and potential to cheat) of starting any new dietary lifestyle is that your tastebuds, nevermind your heart, longs for your favourite, comforting, decadent meals. Be it mashed potatoes, a creamy pasta or, most definitely, PIZZA. Indulging in these not only sets you back on your journey, but will leave you suffering with bloated feelings of guilt. This doesn’t have to be the case and we have the answer:   Banting blvd Pizza Base Premix.

This base is gluten free, grain free and has no added sugar.

Carbs per serving: less than 5g

It only requires a pinch more effort but it is worth every minute, and you can turn pizza making into a social event.

This pizza base premix is our family’s favourite substitute for conventional pizza – it might even surpass conventional pizza, and is always in our pantry.

We even gave it to “non-banters” to try and despite their expectations, they loved it! There is never a single cheesy crumb left over.

One of the major benefits of homemade pizza is that you can add as much topping as you want, so we went to town with the thickest layer of bacon, mushroom, red pepper, onion, feta cheese, and avocado you have ever seen. This was topped with so much cheese you couldn’t see the through it. The result was a stretchy cheese, flavourful explosion that brought the whole family together for a fun Sunday afternoon lunch.

We really wanted to see what this pizza base was made of, and we weren’t disappointed.

Okay, okay, so what does it taste like?

Usually when you hear gluten free pizza, you associate it with those soggy, floppy, cardboard flavoured pizzas you can get for only R15-00 extra at a restaurant. This one is the opposite.

The base is fairly crispy, and sturdy enough to support a double serving of topping, even with cream cheese seeped into it.  All this while still being soft enough to satisfy the palate of even the toughest critics.

It has a faint, neutral almond flavour that doesn’t overpower or spoil the other flavours on the pizza, but rather compliments it.

The entire pizza making process takes only about 45 minutes, and all you need is milk, eggs, and olive oil.

Tasting is believing, so we highly recommend you go straight here to purchase your pizza base premix, and you can try out the Urban Simplicity recipe here

From the heart of our home to yours, bon appétit.
