Who ever said Pizza was not healthy?

Who ever did clearly never tried Buckwheat crust! Holy Hannah, this was amazing.  Different, I will admit, but amazing.  Traditionally buckwheat crust is made using buckwheat flour, but I wanted to try it with cooked buckwheat and flour instead and it turned out great!

Once you try this you will open a whole knew world to {healthy} pizza.  It is an easy weeknight staple, and can be made with such delicious, nutritious and colourful ingredients! The beautiful thing about pizza is you can basically put anything on it, and it will still probably taste damn good.  As you can see I have not added cheese, but who I am to tell you what to do! If you want cheese, go for it!


This recipe is:

  • Healthy
  • Crunchy
  • Guilt free
  • And will probably keep you coming back for more!

Buckwheat Crust Pizza

  • Author: Maria Koutsogiannis
  • Prep Time: 30 mins
  • Cook Time: 35 mins
  • Total Time: 1 hour 5 mins
  • Yield: 1 1x
  • Category: Healthy Pizza


  • 1/2 a cup buckwheat flour, save a tbsp for dusting
  • 1 cup cooked buckwheat (around 3/4 cup uncooked, add about 3 cups of water,stir occasionally, and add more water if needed. Should take about 25 minutes. ***you want it to be a bit overcooked so it is easy to work with)
  • 1 tablespoon spice/s or chopped/fresh herb of choice
  • Pinch of salt and pepper
  • 2 flax eggs (sub for 2 eggs)
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • Pizza toppings of choice


  1. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper
  2. Drizzle 1/2 the olive oil and use hands to rub around evenly onto the parchment, and dust with with half the saved flour (1/2 a tbsp)
  3. Into a bowl combine the flour, cooked Buckwheat, fresh herbs, salt/pepper, and eggs
  4. Using your hands or a spoon begin to combine the ingredients until the dough sticks together easily, or till the consistency is even
  5. Form a ball (ish), and transfer it to the baking sheet
  6. Now roll into a large crust, I easily used my hands to form the crust, just make sure it isn’t to thick
  7. FOR RAW PIZZA TOPPINGS: bake for 35 minutes at 375C
  8. FOR BAKED PIZZA TOPPINGS: bake the crust for 10 minutes at 375C, then add your toppings and bake for another 25 minutes at 375C!
