Pizza Pancakes



  • 1/2 cup rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 2 TBSP (13 grams) flax seed meal
  • 1 heaping TBSP tomato paste
  • few shakes Italian seasonings (1/2 to 1 TBSP?)
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp onion powder
  • dash garlic powder
  • salt and pepper to taste


  • Grind rolled oats into oat flour using a blender, food processor, or Magic Bullet. You may have to stop blending and stir with fork a couple of times.
  • Combine remaining ingredients with oat flour.
  • Allow flax seed to thicken the mix for about 10 to 15 minutes while you heat up your pancake griddle over low heat.
  • Stir again and fry pancakes on griddle or in greased skillet over low heat.


For my toppings, I made Mae’s Humnut sauce: 1 TBSP Sabra’s Spinach Artichoke Hummus with 1 TBSP nutritional yeast and some water to thin. I then drizzled a bit of tahini over my whole plate and finished things off with a generous amount of freshly ground pepper. The pancakes were so moist on the inside, kind of crisp on the outside, and I loved the pizza-like flavor. I think these would taste amazing with a spread of pesto and a sprinkle of pine nuts, or for all you cheesy readers out there, top with a little crumbled feta and stick the pancakes under the broiler until the cheese melts. Ahhh, I’m drooling just thinking about it. 🙂

Wow I’d have never thought of making pizza flavored pancakes. This sounds amazing! I must try them! Possibly with some asiago cheese broiled on top.. mmm

Lauren, I haven’t made these in a while, but yes, they are quite good. I bet they would be amazing with asiago…I like they way you think. 😉

Wow I didn’t realize the pizza, pancake, hummus combo. Some things a girl just doesn’t think of on her own…
