Lavash pizza is my favorite way to make pizza. Who doesn’t love fresh, homemade pizza?

Last summer, my husband and I wanted to make some homemade pizza and saw lavash (which looks similar to tortillas) at our local health food stor and decided to buy some and see if it would make a good pizza crust.

I have made pizza with a tortilla before, so I was hoping that the lavash would work.

After the first time we made it, we were hooked!

My husband’s family has a tradition of weekly homemade pizza night, and we decided to carry on the tradition with these pizzas each week!

This is the brand of lavash that I buy, I get it from my local health food store.

I’m in love with Sami’s Bakery products. I’m also a huge fan of their millet bread and their millet berry bagels are to die for!

I love the simplicity of the ingredients!

Most pizza leaves me feeling bloated, but I never feel bad after I eat lavash pizza!

I used Muir Glen organic pizza sauce in this recipe.

I love this sauce because it is so flavorful that I don’t need to add anything to it.

Most pizza sauces I end up having to add more spices to, but not this one!

Fresh mozzarella is key in this recipe. None of that packaged stuff.

I love that I’m able to buy super fresh mozzarella from my local Fresh Market, you can really taste the difference!

Another thing that I love about fresh mozzarella is that it doesn’t upset my stomach.

Dairy can sometimes make me feel bad, but the fresher I buy and use, the better my body seems to like it.

Fresh basil is also key in this recipe, it really ties all the flavors together!

Cooking lavash is relatively easy, but you need to watch it carefully, since different ovens and pans will cook faster.

How to make lavash pizza

First, you brush both sides of the lavash with a light coat of olive oil. You then bake it at 425 for around 3-4 minutes per side. You will need to oil both sides first so that when you flip it will be ready to bake the other side.

When you’re lavash looks like this, it’s ready for topping. It should be just starting to brown and get crispy, without being too cooked.

I like to set all of my toppings out in bowls so that I have them all lined up to top the pizzas.

Spread a thin layer of sauce on the tops of each lavash. Top with mushroom mixture, fresh mozzarella, and fresh basil.

Bake for 4-6 more minutes, or until cheese starts to melt and pizza looks crispy.
