If you’re a fan of pizza (and who isn’t?), you’ll be happy to know you can have it on the Daniel Fast! This Flatbread Pizza recipe is very tasty and completely Daniel Fast friendly (made with whole grain flour and no yeast). You won’t be disappointed! 

Flatbread Pizza with Macadamia Nut Cheese

2 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
2 tablespoon flaxseed meal
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup warm water
1 cup Spinach Artichoke Dip
1 cup Classic Tomato Sauce

Topping ideas: Green peppers, mushrooms, olives, onions, and/or roasted red bell peppers.

Mix flour, flaxseed meal, salt, and water in a food processor until dough forms a ball. Turn dough onto a floured work surface, and knead for 5 minutes. Transfer to a bowl, and cover tightly with plastic wrap. Let dough rest at least 30 minutes.

Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Rub a little flour on a rolling pin, and roll dough out onto a preheated pizza stone or an oiled pizza pan into a 12-inch or 14-inch circle (depending upon the thickness of crust you prefer). If dough is too sticky to roll, put some flour on your fingertips and press dough to edges. With a fork, poke holes all across crust dough. Bake 10 minutes, and remove from oven.

Spread Spinach Artichoke Dip across crust, and top with Classic Tomato Sauce. Add desired toppings. Bake 20 minutes or until edges of crust are brown and slightly crispy. Remove from oven, and let sit 5 minutes before slicing and serving.

Yield: 8 servings (serving size = 1 slice)

Recipe Notes

  • Substitute Pesto for the Spinach Artichoke Dip.
  • Use Eggplant Tomato Sauce instead of Classic Tomato Sauce. Place sauce in food processor, and pulse until it reaches desired consistency.

  1. Oh, so good!!!

  2. Very good! I would recommend following the crispy crust instructions.

  3. Amanda, thanks for your comments. So, you did the crispy crust? That’s how we like it, too. 🙂

  4. My roommate made this last week—UNBELIEVABLE. Definitely the best thing I’ve eaten on this fast. I’m making it this week. Thanks for all you do, Kristen!

  5. That’s great to hear! Thanks for all your comments on the blog. I’m praying for you on this fast!

  6. Eating this now! Good stuff! Thank you!

  7. What a great flat bread/crust!

  8. Karen Pental says:

    I’m wondering if there are any other “cheese” options to replace the nuts as my son has tree nut and peanut allergy. thanks.

    • Well, the “nut cheese” in this recipe is more visual than anything. You could eliminate it and be fine. The only other nut-free vegan “cheeses” contain ingredients that aren’t allowed on the Daniel Fast, so they’re not an option. Maybe someone else has a suggestion?

    We made this dish last night…it came out wonderful!!!!

  10. I made this pizza tonight, and it was delicious! I stretched the crust super thin-it was crispy and just yummy! All of the recipes I have tried from this site have been great (oatmeal raisin cookies are going in the oven in a minute), and the stories people share are so inspiring! This is my first Daniel Fast, and I am really enjoying this time of being in closer communion with the Lord. Thank you so much for your ideas, insights, inspiration, and recipes!

    • Sarah, thanks for your encouraging comments! I pray you continue to be blessed by the recipes and devotions as you fast and pray. May God pour out His favor on your life in BIG WAYS this year!

  11. This recipe is amazing! Everyone in the family loves it. Cooked it on parchment paper & it was crispy & easy to get out of the pan.

  12. Have you ever done a Cauliflower Pizza Crust and using an alternative Non Dairy Cheese on it successfully? If so could you share the Recipe, or anyone else. Thank You

  13. Thanks for sharing these great recipes! Is there alternative to using whole wheat that will work for this recipe? I no longer eat wheat.

  14. This is one of my favorite recipes. I have made this meal many times. Even my meat loving family love this pizza.

  15. Kantrell Smith says:

    this was sooo good, I added my own veggies and Italian/pizza spices.. thanks so much for these recipes, this website actually made this fast doable. No food-rut for me,

  16. I don’t have a food processor. I have a Vita Mix machine but I don’t have the dry container that goes with it to make dough. Do you have any other suggestions for making the dough for the pizza? I really would love to make this for my family.


  17. Ada Smoot says:

    Do you think I can use Oat flour instead of whole wheat?

  18. I have done a Daniel fast every January for many years, but this is the first time my husband and daughter are doing it with me. This pizza made them both happy tonight 🙂 just a note, I made the dough in my bread machine, turning off the machine after the first mixing, and letting the dough rest in there. This worked very well.

  19. Jessica N says:

    This website is such a blessing. I was almost about to quit but thank God I’m still pressing. Anyhow, I used spaghetti squash as my “cheese”. It looks appealing and tastes good. I also added garlic and onion powder to my dough mixture and put some olive oil and Italian herbs when I baked it.

    • I’m so glad the Lord let you to my website to encourage you! And, I like your idea of using spaghetti squash as a pizza topping. Thanks for sharing!

  20. Can you make this the night before?

  21. Hi,
    I have a question about the flour. I am not able to use Wheat flour due to Celiacs Disease….am I able to use Gluten Free Flour? Most Gluten free flour are made from rice, corn, even some from oats. If so is there a specific brand to get or are most okay?


    • You can substitute any whole grain flour. So gluten-free flour is acceptable as long as the grains used are WHOLE GRAIN. For example, regular “rice flour” isn’t whole grain, but brown rice flour is. I don’t have a specific brand to recommend. Just read the labels carefully to be sure the flour is Daniel Fast friendly.

  22. elizabeth fernandes says:

    hu thank you for the recipe a question can i use cheddar stye soy cheese

  23. What store bought flat bread brand is good for the fast?

  24. Hi, I don’t have a food processor. Is there any store bought spinach and artichoke dip that I could try instead? Or maybe I could just make it without the dip.

    • Do you have a blender? That would work. I seriously doubt if you can find a Daniel Fast friendly dip anywhere in stores. You can try, though! But I’m almost positive there will be restricted ingredients in it. Thanks for your question!

  25. Will rice flour work for in lieu of wheat?

    • Hi, Carol! I have not tried brown rice flour with this recipe, but I do know from experience that it is much different texture-wise. I’m not sure it would work unless you used 1/2 brown rice flour and 1/2 of some other type of whole grain (or bean) flour, such as garbanzo bean flour. But, yes, you can substitute any Daniel Fast friendly flour(s) in this recipe. Thanks for your question!

  26. Hi ! I don’t have any flaxseed meal. Is there a substitute? Or am I able to make it without it?
