👩🏽🍳 How do you make granola pizza?
It is so easy to make! Follow these simple steps:
- You need to mix granola, tahini, and coconut oil in a bowl.
- Then spread the mixture on a baking sheet. Bake it for about 10-15 minutes until golden brown. Cool it in the fridge.

🍕 Benefits of Granola Pizza
One of the main benefits is that it's a healthy breakfast and brunch option. The granola crust contains whole grains, which are full of fiber and protein. This will keep you feeling full and satisfied throughout the morning, helping you avoid unhealthy snacking later in the day.
Another benefit is its versatility. You can use any type of fruit or yogurt to create the topping. Which means you can customize it to your liking! This makes it a great option for people with dietary restrictions or picky eaters.
In addition, it makes a big batch that keeps well for several days. It is perfect for meal prep or feeding a crowd!
Place it in an airtight container or wrap it gently in plastic wrap. Store it in the refrigerator for up to 3-4 days or in the freezer for up to 1 month. If you can, store toppings separated from the pizza and top freshly.
- Melt the coconut oil and tahini in a microwave-safe bowl in short increments, stirring in between.
- Add all the crust ingredients to a bowl and mix well. Press the crust firmly onto the bottom of a cake or tart pan, covering it with a piece of parchment paper.
- Bake at 355°F / 180°C for 10 minutes, then transfer to the fridge and let it cool completely until the crust is firm, at least for 1 hour, preferably overnight.
- Once the crust is ready, remove it from the fridge, spread yogurt on top, and add berries and fig slices. Drizzle agave syrup on top if desired and sprinkle with Carrington’s Flax Hemp Blend. Cut into slices, serve, and enjoy!
