We are exited since offering our Vivo pizza bases on the website the last few weeks quite a few of you are enjoying them at home, not only as pizza bases!
They are easy to store in the freezer and use for you own pizza creations or simply as a delicious raw gluten free flat bread.
We have been loving sandwiches made with our Vivo flat bread the last few weeks, Natalie’s favoutite is with a little nut cheese (from Tatamoo, Hope st market) lots of fresh tomato, lettuce from the garden, salt and pepper, perfect easy lunch!
In case you didn’t know, our bases are made with seeds, a mixture of buckwheat and flax.
Buckwheat is not related to Wheat at all and is actually a gluten-free seed, it has a great nutritional profile that we improve further by careful sprouting.
After a couple of days of sprouting the buckwheat has even better digestibility too. We then add freshly ground flax seeds, which are high in omega oils and digestive fiber, a little onion, spring water and natural salt. We mix this into a ‘batter’ that is then immediately dried at around 45 deg to produce a Vivo Pizza base. The vast majority of our seeds are from certified organic sources.
