Gluten-free Polenta crust Margherita pizza


For polenta crust

2 cups broth

2 cups almond milk, unsweetened

1 cup polenta

½ cup grated parmesan

2-3 fresh basil leaves

1 tbsp. extra virgin olive for drizzle *View product

For salsa

3 big fresh tomatoes, cut in 2

4 tbsp. extra virgin olive for drizzle *View product

2 garlic cloves, thinly sliced

¼ cup fresh basil leaves, minced

Salt & pepper to taste

For pizza

4 oz (1 cups)shredded mozzarella

¼ cup grated parmesan cheese

Fresh basil leaves, minced


For polenta crust, in a large saucepan bring almond milk, stock and basil to boil. When liquid comes to boil, add polenta and stir continuously with a wooden spoon or whisk until mixture thickens and starts to bubble 2-3 minutes. Reduce heat, then stir in Parmesan and season with salt and pepper.

Pour polenta onto a round baking tray cover with parchment paper and spread out into a circle about 1/3-inch thick. Let cool then transfer to refrigerator and chill until firm, at least 1 hour.

Meanwhile for salsa, scoop tomato seeds out of cavities from tomato halves. Gently squeeze tomato to remove the more water. Mince fresh tomato, transfer in a bowl with the rest of salsa ingredients, mix and set aside.

Heat oven at 450°F. Remove polenta from refrigerator and drizzle with 1 tbsp. Olive oil. Bake until it begins to crisp around edges, about 20 minutes.

Remove from oven and top with ½ mozzarella and Parmesan, add salsa and finish with the rest of mozzarella and Parmesan. Sprinkle with salt and drizzle with olive oil.

Bake until cheese is melted and bubbling, 10 to 12 minutes. Remove from oven, let rest 5 minutes, top with fresh basil and serve.
