Hello my Dearest Foodies,

Friday is almost here and pizza might be just the perfect idea for your weekend menu. Especially, delicious and highly nutritious one like this! And of course, easy to make! There for, keep that in mind when you do your grocery shopping!

Although, feel free to try different toppings and even vegan cheese, such as Daiya! I am sure it will be all delicious. You may also like to try the toppings I used in my previous SPELT PIZZA.

The most important is that this pizza crust is extremely healthy, since buckwheat is not only gluten free, but it has many other health benefits. You can read about them HERE.

Wish you a happy Friday and wonderful weekend 💚

Everything looks so delicious and the photos are magnificent. I hope one day to take such good photos of my cakes

You are so sweet my Dear Denisse! Thank you so much 💚😊💚

PS: Just a little tip for your cakes photography. Daylight is always best, near window( although I am using artificial lighting). However, never direct bright sunlight. Also, this website is very helpful for editing:

Thank you very much for your advice. I will put them into practice😊

You are most welcome Denisse and if you have any questions you can always contact me via Instagram 😊

Very untraditional pizza and I can imagine how delicious it is! It looks so summery!

You know, I was thinking to call it Summer Pizza, but summer is practically over; unfortunately! Thank you so much Melinda, I am happy you like one I will make more traditional, for autumn 💚😊💚

This is a unique type of pizza. I have never seen or had one like this. Thank you for sharing the recipe, at least I can attempt to make and try it one day!

Thank you so much my Dear, I really hope you try it 💚😊💚

Howdy Miss Lena! This is amazing, I've never seen anything like it before. lol. The thing is gorgeous, look at those colors! I have no idea what this would taste like though but I'd love to try it.

You are so funny Janton, lol, Thank you so much! It was delicious, although it did not taste much like pizza, lol. But I made it for people who want to eat very healthy. Next time I am planning make more traditional one with rise dough, but still healthy 🍅🍕🌿

Yes the one with healthy dough would have to be made with Spelt right?
