To make Posh Pizza you need to make the “hummus” ahead of time.
To make the olive hummus:
Mix in a food processor the following and blend until thick and creamy.
1 ½ cups white beans (like haricot or navy)
1 small garlic clove
2 spring onions, chopped
1 TB olive oil
Juice of 1 lemon--about 3-4 TB
1/3 cup olives
¼-½ tsp seasoned salt like Herbamare
Refrigerate until ready to make the pizza.
Use whatever crust you like. I make my own GF one that is quite hardy and whole grain. It is really good and wholemeal-y but not as doughy as a white bread crust would be. Do what you like. Use a store bought crust to make it go quicker. Whatever. But follow the directions for baking it on the label. Because I make my crust from scratch it has to bake 15-17 minutes on its own before you add the toppings.
2. Chop 3 ripe tomatoes and stir over 1 ½ TB agave (or use what I used which is called Sweet Freedom and is low GI and is a syrup made from grapes, apples and carob. Who knew?)Add 1 tsp fennel seeds, 1 tsp mild chilli powder, ½ tsp red pepper flakes. Let marinate while the crust is cooking.
3. If you are baking from scratch , bake crust 17 minutes then add the toppings. If you are using a pre-made crust, then just add the toppings.
2. Add your previously caramelised white onion, walnuts and mushroom
3. Add the tomato mixture making sure to pour over any sauce in the bottom of the bowl
4. Dot with cashew cheese
Then bake for about 10 minutes. When it comes out of the hot oven sprinkle on some torn rocket leaves.
