Free Healthy Recipe - Pumpkin, Goats Cheese, Spinach and Pine Nut Pizza

Dairy free, Low fat, Low sugar, Wheat Free

The Greeks believed pinenuts to be an aphrodisiac so it might be fun to test their theory, although you may want to share the pizza with the person you plan to cuddle up to as the garlic may temper their ardor!
Roasted garlic is sweet tasting and can help to destroy bacteria in the intestines.

Ingredients
1 piece wholemeal spelt Tannour bread, (available from health food stores)
200 grams pumpkin, (peeled and sliced cm thick)
3 cloves garlic, (peeled and whole)
½ bunch silverbeet
1 tbsp olive oil
1 tbsp pine nuts
Method

Preheat oven to 180 degrees Celsius.

Brush the pumpkin with olive oil and place it onto a baking tray with the whole garlic cloves. Roast for 20 - 25 minutes.
Wash and trim the silverbeet removing all white stalks.
Bring a pan of water with added sea salt to boil before adding the silverbeet and cooking for 2 minutes. Drain and squeeze out any excess water. Chop it roughly and set aside.
Mash the roast garlic with tbs olive oil. Smear the garlic paste over the tannour bread. Add the spinach, pumpkin, goats cheese and pinenuts and cook for 15 minutes until the base is crispy.

Note: Because goat's cheese has such a strong flavour you can less than you might other varieties, cutting down on saturated fat.
