Polenta Pizza

Posted on January 27th, 2015

Today calls for a celebration! The reason being that my dearest, darling mother has been without wheat and sugar for a whole week! It’s important to recognise these small milestones along your journey towards a healthy lifestyle as it encourages you and motivates you to keep up the good work. In honor of my mamma I am posting a recipe thought up and created by her. It is polenta pizza and truly is a delicious addition to any meal. 437

Bring 1 litre of salted water to the boil.

Add 1 cup polenta* and stir constantly until it thickens (about 1 minute)

Spread a medium layer of polenta into 2 pie molds and leave to set for 15 minutes.

Top with grated cheese, sliced cherry tomatoes, mushrooms, basil pesto, slices of mozzarella cheese and a generous grinding of salt and pepper (You can add any toppings that you would like).

Bake in the oven at 180 degrees C for 15 minutes. 442*NOTE: Polenta is an Italian delicacy made from corn. It is naturally free from wheat. It can be found in most supermarkets and isn’t very costly.
