Oat Flour Pizza Crust

Pizza crust is one of those things that may seem intimidating to make at home. Sure, it might seem easier to pick up a frozen pizza crust—but what if I told you making your own didn’t have to be hard?

Well, that’s what I’m telling you!

Plus, when you make your own pizza crust, you can control what ingredients you use. I’m all for a traditional white flour crust every now and then, but I want pizza like… every night. Let’s make it with more nutritious ingredients!

The star of this oat pizza crust is… OATS! (obviously). Quaker Quick 1-Minute Oats, to be exact. I love oats because they are a good source of fiber.

That’s right—Quaker oats aren’t just for oatmeal (though I love oatmeal). I love to use oats in smoothies and falafel and cornbread and pizza crust. So versatile! When you use oats as the base of a recipe, the possibilities are endless.

What I love most about Quaker is that you can find their oats at pretty much every grocery store. That’s because they believe that your life circumstances shouldn’t be a barrier to good nutrition! Accessibility is everything, and Quaker is committed to being accessible to as many people as possible.

How to Make an Oat Flour Pizza Crust

The technique for making this oat flour pizza crust is the same as making any other pizza crust.

First, you need to activate your yeast. If your yeast doesn’t get foamy after it sits in warm sugar water, your yeast is dead—start over!

Whisk in olive oil and salt. Then, it’s time for the flours! To make oat flour, simply add Quaker Quick 1-Minute Oats to a blender or food processor; and blend until a flour forms. Then add the oat flour and whole wheat pastry flour (or white whole wheat flour).

Knead, knead, knead, and knead some more. Who knew making pizza would be such good stress relief?

Oat Flour Pizza Crust Recipe

This oat flour pizza crust recipe makes two dough balls; you can bake both, or you can freeze one for later!

After baking the oat pizza crust alone, pile on whatever toppings you want. I went with marinara, fresh tomatoes, cashew cheese, and basil. I really want to make a pesto pizza to take advantage of the last of summer basil!

Yield:
8 1x

Ingredients

  • 2 cups Quaker Quick 1-Minute Oats
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 cup warm water
  • 1 packet (2 1/4 teaspoons) active dry yeast
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 cups whole wheat pastry flour

Instructions

  1. In a blender or food processor, add oats. Blend into a fine flour; set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, add sugar and warm water. Sprinkle yeast on top and gently stir once. Let sit 5 minutes, until yeast is foamy. If there is no foam, the yeast is dead; start again with new yeast.
  3. Add olive oil and salt to the bowl; whisk to combine.
  4. Add oat flour and whole wheat flour to the bowl. Stir until a dough ball forms. On a lightly floured surface, knead the dough. Knead for 5-8 minutes, until the dough is smooth.
  5. In a large bowl coated with oil, place the dough. Cover with a damp warm towel. Let sit for 1 hour, until dough has risen.
  6. Punch dough. Divide into two even dough balls; knead each until smooth (alternatively, you can freeze one dough ball). On a lightly floured surface, roll out each dough ball into a 1/4-inch thick circle. Fold in the edges to form a raised crust.
  7. Lightly flour a baking pan. Transfer crust to pan. Bake for 18 minutes.
  8. Add desired toppings and bake accordingly.
