Gluten free healthy pizza with tomatoes and mozzarella | budget-proof challenge

Healthy and gluten free spinach pizza crust. Topped with mozarella, pesto and tomatoes | Stay Alive and Cooking

Okay now tell me: how often do you hear the words “pizza” “healthy” “tasty” and even “gluten free” in the same sentence? Not that often, right? Well do I have some good news for you today… And all that for only 1,50 per person!

I’ll admit it’s not exactly the same as a regular pizza but it’s got cheese and it’s crunchy so it’s kinda the same. And the best part: it’s really tasty when you are expecting a healthy pizza! So what more do you want. Seriously. Printable recipe down belooow!

As I mentioned in an earlier post, this Month I’m challenging myself by cooking budget-proof recipes every day. This can be anything, so let me know if you have any suggestions!

Today was a weird day. The painter came to redo the bathroom walls at 8 am and I had had such a bad nights sleep. I even woke us up because I shouted?! Anyway, I had plenty of time for blogging and other things with that extra hour. I checked my mail and found out I finally have been assigned to a community, yesss! I am almost getting excited to get back to school… I don’t officially have to start yet but I want to sort of ease into it, which is why I’ll follow some lessons I’ve already had before. I could not do this yet as I didn’t have access to the roster or documents, which made me extremely restless.


Most of the morning I was feeling, well, I can only call it energized and optimistic about going back to school after not being able to study for nearly a year. (I wrote about my anxiety in the “Life” tab, if you’d like more information) I printed the study guide, downloaded a really cool Monthly planner from team confetti and even decided to go to school the next day already!

Buuuut later that day I started to have that tiny bit of doubt in my head. I was nervous but something very positive: I wasn’t frustrated. I cut myself some slack because I knew that it was difficult for me, and that I just needed some time.


I still had to deal with that feeling so I decided to go to the gym. Usually I have to drag myself there and it was raining so that would have given me all the more reason to just curl up on the couch instead, but I needed to get out of the house. When I arrived at the gym the strangest thing happened: I felt motivated. Really! Normally I’m counting down the time but not now, no I was on fiiiire!


Feeling a hundred times better I finished the previous blog post and started cooking the healthy pizza with the boyfriend who was home really early. We made this dish and even though I wasn’t sure at first it turned out really great!

Oatmeal-spinach pizza with pesto, tomatoes and mozzarella

This recipe is originally from Margriet if I’m correct, I read it in a magazine at my grandma’s place and wrote it down. I made some changes as I’m terrible in following recipes…

It was enough for 2 persons to have as dinner, the oatmeal makes this a very filling dish. I even have some left for lunch tomorrow.

It cost me 1,50 per person, so way below the budget!

For the dough:
  1. Oatmeal, 250g
  2. Spinach, 80g
  3. Yeast, 7g
  4. Eggs, 3 large
  5. Olive oil, 2 spoonfuls
  6. Salt
For the topping:
  1. Pesto, 5 spoonfuls
  2. Cherry tomatoes, 200g
  3. Mozzarella, 150g
  1. Preheat the oven to 200 degrees and spread a sheet of baking paper on something like an oven tray.
  2. Start by putting the oats in the food processor together with the yeast. Blend until it is oat flour. (it's okay if there are small chunks)
  3. Add the spinach and blend.
  4. Break the eggs in a bowl and add to the mixture. Add the olive oil and salt as well.
  5. It is supposed to turn into some sort of dough-like mixture now but don't worry: it didn't in our kitchen. As long as it's thick and gooey it is okay. (if it's too watery you can add some more oats)
  6. Take it out of the bowl and spread it on the baking tray. Make sure it is sort of even: around 1-1.5 cm thick.
  7. Place this in the oven for 15 minutes.
  1. Cut the tomatoes in half and slice the mozzarella.
  2. When the pizza dough is done baking, take it out of the oven and spread the pesto on top. I like to use loads: the dough can be a little dry.
  3. Place the tomatoes and mozzarella on the pizza as well, and sprinkle some pepper on top.
  4. This can go back into the oven for another 15 minutes.
  5. Enjoy!
  1. If you don't own a food processor you can buy oat flour instead.
I would like to try this with
  1. - tomato sauce, salami, cheese, onions.
  2. - tomato sauce, different kind of cheese.
  3. - pesto or tomato sauce with different kind of roasted vegetables.
  4. Do you have any more suggestions?
That’s it for today, tomorrow I’ll be back with another budgetproof recipe! Stay posted, have a good day and enjoy your healthy pizza!
