A dairy-free pizza featuring a flavourful balsamic tahini drizzle and topped with chicken and fresh tomatoes and arugula.
We love pizza and have it almost every Friday. With so many versatile and balanced ways to prepare it, we never tired of it!
Tahini Pizza is one of Courtney's all-time favorite recipes. The tahini drizzle replaces classic cheese for a dairy-free version. For a gluten free version, we like the cauliflower pizza crust from Costco or the O'doughs Flat Bread found in the natural food section of Superstore. For those who tolerate wheat we recommend any multigrain pizza crust. For example, the President's Choice multigrain crust found at any Loblaw's store like Superstore!
What is tahini you ask? Tahini is to sesame seeds what peanuts are to peanut butter. Tahini is classically used in hummus and is delicious in this savoury balsamic drizzle that offers healthy fats and micronutrients (like zinc!) to this pizza.
