Wholesome Chocolate Pizza
This vegan chocolate pizza is what dreams are made of. The chocolate mousse on top is based on sweet potato and cashews and it tastes just heavenly!
Vegan, gluten-free, dairy-free, naturally sweetened
2 tbsp chia seeds + ½ cup water
1 cup almond meal
½ cup potato starch or tapioca flour
2 tbsp psyllium husk
a pinch of salt
½ cup olive oil
Preheat the oven to 390 Fahrenheit (200 Celsius) degrees. Mix water and chia seeds in a small bowl and set aside for about 5 minutes. In the meantime, put all the other ingredients into a bowl and mix. Add the chia gel and stir. For the dough into a ball and press or roll out on a parchment lined baking pan. Bake for about 15 minutes or just until the crust starts to become a very light golden brown. Let it cool down a bit before adding the toppigs.
1 cup steamed sweet potato pieces
½ cup cashew nuts, soaked for about 1 hour
5 fresh dates, pitted
½ cup almond milk, or other dairy free milk
4-6 tbsp raw cocoa powder
1 tsp vanilla extract
1-2 tbsp coconut oil, melted
Place all the ingredients into a blender and blend until smooth mousse. Add a bit more liquid if needed, so that you get a smooth mixture, but keep the mousse as thick as possible. Spread evenly on the pizza crust. Add the rest of the toppings. Serve and enjoy!
