This Gluten-free Pizza recipe is very unique where the pizza base is made with the batter and not with the dough! It’s an easy, healthy and tastier version of regular pizza.

I have made this with Barnyard millet (Sama rice) which means you can have it during fasts too just by omitting onions. And the best part is that it is gluten-free!

If you to make it vegan, then use the sauce and toppings as in this Vegan Pizza

In my hunt for millet recipes, I came across this recipe and found it unique as well good. Something worth giving a try. So, just went ahead with minor tweaks here and there in the original recipe. I used the Barnyard millet. I tried it with other millets too but Barnyard millet gives the best result! so, I would recommend that only.

The method of making this recipe is very unique. The pizza base is made with a batter, unlike dough in the usual cases. I have taken this recipe from here but have tweaked it a lot. Like, I neither used all-purpose flour or baking soda as mentioned in that recipe. This is because I wanted to make it gluten-free and without using any chemicals. It was a trial.  And if I tell you frankly, while making this for dinner I had kept a second option ready as I was too unsure of the outcome. But believe me, it was liked so much by everyone that, that second option got its due the next day only.

I had my inhibitions while trying it. But will share just one line that would say all, my son commented that I should make it regularly and that it was too good.

The Best thing about this Pizza, apart from being easy to make is that it is very light to eat. There is no feeling of heaviness after eating it.
