Makes 2 Average Size Flatbreads
1 cup warm oat milk (slightly warmer than lukewarm but not hot)
2 tbsp sugar
1.5 tsp dry active yeast
1.75 cups gluten-free 1-to-1 flour
¼ cup tapioca starch
1.5 tsp Suncore Foods® Red Beet Powder
2 tsp Suncore Foods® Pink Pitaya Powder
¾ tsp salt (or to taste)
½ tsp garlic powder
¼ cup + 2 tbsp olive oil (+ more for brushing)
Kale Pesto (prepare the pesto before making the flatbread or while the flatbread is baking):
½ cup fresh basil
1 cup kale
½ cup unsalted pine nuts
2-3 garlic cloves
1/3 cup olive oil
¾ - 1 tsp salt
1. Red Beet Pink Pitaya Flatbread — Combine warm oat milk, sugar and yeast. Set aside until frothy and double in size, approximately 15 minutes. In a large bowl, combine flour, tapioca starch, Suncore Foods® Powders, salt and garlic powder. Once the yeast-milk mixture is ready, add it to the bowl of dry ingredients along with olive oil. Mix well and form a dough. The dough will be slightly sticky but will come together while kneading. Knead the dough on a clean surface for 1-2 minutes and separate the dough into 2 portions. Line your work surface with parchment paper and place the dough on top it. Using a rolling pin, roll out each dough separately to your preferred shape. Using a fork, evenly prick the dough a few times and brush a generous amount of olive oil over the dough. Lift the parchment paper and place it onto a baking tray. Bake at 425 deg. F for 12-14 minutes until cooked through and the bottom of the flatbread is browning and crispy. Once the flatbread is ready, allow it to cool a little so it’s safe enough to handle but still warm. Spread a generous amount of kale pesto over the flatbread and add your favorite toppings.
2. Kale Pesto — Place all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth and well combined. Spread pesto over flatbread before adding toppings. Refrigerate any leftovers.
