Oatmeal Pizza

Perusing the latest Oxygen magazine, I stopped on an article entitled "Oats for Pizza?" A beautiful oat crust stared back at me, loaded with veggies and cheese. Could this actually taste... good? The answer? Absolutely. Of course, it doesn't taste like the delectable deep dish pizzas sprinkled around Chicago, but it has a satisfying crunch that is more filling than pizza dough. You can dress it up anyway you like and it's done in just 20 minutes. It's a healthy treat the whole family can enjoy!

Oatmeal Pizza

1/2 cup oats
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp ground flaxseed
2 oz extra-lean ground turkey
1 cup chopped spinach
1/4 cup unsalted tomato paste
1/4 cup 1% cottage cheese
2 tbsp red onion, chopped
2 tbsp red bell pepper, chopped
1 roma tomato, sliced
1/4 cup sliced mushrooms

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

2. In a bowl, mix together first 4 ingredients. Flatten this oatmeal crust into a disc shape on a baking sheet. Bake for 5 minutes, flip over and bake for another 5.

3. In a mixing bowl, combine remaining ingredients. Spread out on top of the oatmeal cake. Bake until cheese melts. Sprinkle with fresh parmesan (optional) when it comes out of the oven.

With 36 grams of protein, 4 mg iron and only 5 grams of fat in the entire serving, this pizza also packs a nutritional punch. Enjoy!


  1. Do you have to use the flaxseed? Is there a substitute?

    This sounds delicious.

  2. Nope - no flaxseed needed! You can play around with the recipe, or use oat flour instead of oatmeal crust!

  3. Absolutely delicious!!!
