pizza bread bakes

Good things must come in threes.

Well at least yesterday + today they do.

Thursday, it was three dips.

And now, three pizza bread bake recipes.  Personal pan pizzas just got a facelift.

Do you see the missing bread bite in the back left corner of the pan?  There was no waiting for photos.  I just had to try one.

 

First, we have the 2-bite pizzas.  If you have a mini muffin pan, you’re all set.  Okay, you’ll also need 2 small bowls + a spoon.

After a short while in the oven they’re ready for round two.

Carve the tops off at an angle, to create a little bowl.

 

Then fill with sauce + cheese + top with more cheese.

 

Then broil.

 

Then bite.

 

I ate the missing pizza bite while standing on top of my kitchen table, hovering over the pan, taking photos.

It was speaking to me.

So what is the bread part made up of?  It’s not like pizza dough at all.

Do these look familiar?

 

Buckwheat bakes!  Savory style.  They’re packed with herbs and use a mix of raw buckwheat + millet flour.  So what’s with the darker bake?  It’s vegan!  A little something for everyone.

 

So what’s your favorite pizza combination?

Think about it, then stuff it inside with sauce + cheese and broil until bubbly.

My favorite?

Cheese + mushroom. 

 

I suggest tearing into this with a fork + knife.

Unless you’re alone…

In which case you should use your hands.

 

A pizza bread bake sandwich?

Oh yes.

 

While I am a fan of cheese, the vegan version made me just as happy.  I stuffed it with sauce + mushrooms, then topped it with sesame seeds, salt + nutritional yeast.

 

It was quite dangerous to make all of these at once.

 

A pizza-bread food coma ensued.

Pizza Bread Bake [gluten free]

  • 3T raw buckwheat flour
  • 3T millet flour
  • 1 large egg
  • 1T oil
  • 3T milk
  • 1/8t garlic powder
  • 1/2t oregano
  • 1/2t parsley
  • 1/8t salt
  • 1/4t baking powder
  • few grinds of black pepper
  • pizza/marinara sauce
  • grated cheese
  • any other toppings you like
  1. Preheat your oven to 350*. [high altitude use 375*]  Grease or line a 4-5” baking dish with parchment paper.
  2. Mix all of the dry ingredients together in a small bowl.
  3. Whisk the milk, egg + oil together and then stir into to the dry ingredients until just combined.
  4. Pour into the baking dish + bake for 30-34min, until a toothpick comes out moist, but not bone dry.
  5. Remove from the baking dish and let cool for 5min.
  6. Carefully slice the top off, with a serrated knife, cutting at a slight angle to make a bowl shape.
  7. Heat the sauce and cook other ingredients you want to include.
  8. Add sauce, cheese and other ingredients to the bread bowl. 
  9. Put the top on and cover with cheese.
  10. Broil 3-5min until bubbly.

*tips/substitutions: Best when served right away, to keep the bread from becoming soggy.  If you want to prep ahead of time, make the bread up to 3 days prior and store tightly wrapped in the fridge.  Warm the bread and broil with other ingredients right before you want to serve.  You can use 2 ramekin dishes instead of the 4-5” baking dish, or 3 regular sized muffin tins – bake time will vary.  Feel free to sub in GF oat flour or quinoa flour for either in the list.  Raw buckwheat flour can be ground from raw groats and millet flour can be ground from raw millet.

Pizza Bread Bites [gluten free]

*original recipe quadrupled to make 24 mini bites

you can also quadruple the vegan recipe and do the same

  • 3/4c millet flour
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1/4c oil
  • 3/4c milk
  • 1/2t garlic powder
  • 2t oregano
  • 2t parsley
  • 1/2t salt
  • 1t baking powder
  • 10-15 grinds black pepper
  • pizza/marinara sauce
  • grated cheese
  • butter/coconut oil to grease
  1. Preheat your oven to 350*. [high altitude use 375*]  Grease a mini muffin pan.
  2. Mix all of the dry ingredients together in a bowl.
  3. Whisk the milk, egg + oil together and then stir into to the dry ingredients until just combined.
  4. Pour into the the mini muffin pan and bake for 15-18min.
  5. Let cool 5-10min.
  6. Carefully slice the top off, with a serrated knife, cutting at a slight angle to make a bowl shape.
  7. Heat the sauce.
  8. Add about 1/2T sauce sauce, cheese and other ingredients to the bread bowl. 
  9. Put the top on and cover with cheese.
  10. Broil 3-5min until bubbly.

*tips/substitutions: Because they are so small, it works best to just use sauce + cheese with the minis.  Best when served right away, to keep the bread from becoming soggy.  If you want to prep ahead of time, make the bread up to 3 days prior and store tightly wrapped in the fridge.  Warm the bread and broil with the sauce + cheese right before you want to serve.  Feel free to sub in GF oat flour or quinoa flour for either in the list.  Raw buckwheat flour can be ground from raw groats and millet flour can be ground from raw millet.

I think I should cook everything in threes.
