Pizza for breakfast! This hearty pizza is made with an oat and seed crust, packed with protein and fiber. Enjoy with your favorite healthy toppings such as nut butter, fruit, and yogurt.
A closer look at what’s inside:
I love including rolled oats in my breakfast routine because they are a great source of fiber and protein — leaving you feeling satisfied for hours. Oats also offer a number of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants.
Apples add sweetness and natural flavor to this crust. Choose a variety of apple sauce that is made from apples only — no additives or sugar.
This low glycemic sweetener is a great substitute for sugar or honey in recipes! Maple syrup also contains nutrients like manganese, riboflavin, and calcium. Make sure you use 100% real maple syrup and not a recipe made with corn syrup.
This recipe calls for just a touch of dairy-free milk to bring everything together. Use your favorite variety — I like cashew, walnut, or oat milk best!
Pumpkin seeds, or pepitas, are a great source of magnesium, protein, fiber, and healthy fats. I regularly include them in smoothies, baked goods, and as a topping on oats, salads, and more!
Flaxseed is often praised for its nutritional content. These seeds are a good source of omega-3 fatty acids and contain lignans — micronutrients that have been studied for their effects on fighting cancer and cardiovascular disease. Make sure you grind your flaxseed or purchase flaxseed meal as your body best absorbs the nutrients when the seeds are broken down.
Similar to flaxseeds, chia seeds are loaded with nutrients! A one-ounce serving (about 2 tablespoons) contains 11 grams fiber, 4 grams protein, 9 grams of healthy fats including omega-3 fatty acids, and notable amounts of minerals like calcium, magnesium, manganese, and phosphorus.
I absolutely love hemp seeds (or hemp hearts) — I put them on almost everything! They have a subtle nutty flavor and are jam-packed with goodness. Similar to flax and chia, hemp seeds are a good source of omega-3 fatty acids. They are also a solid source of omega-6 fatty acids and the amino acid arginine which is thought to be beneficial to heart health. Hemp seeds are also a good source of protein and are a complete protein — containing all 9 essential amino acids.
Coconut meat contains fiber and medium chain triglycerides (MCTs) that are thought to be beneficial for weight loss and brain function. Plus I love the tropical flavor it adds!

- 1 cup rolled oats
- 1/4 cup apple sauce unsweetened
- 2 tablespoons maple syrup
- 2 tablespoons dairy-free milk
- 2 tablespoons raw pumpkin seeds
- 1 tablespoon flaxseed meal
- 1 tablespoon chia seeds
- 1 tablespoon hemp seeds
- 1 tablespoon shredded coconut unsweetened
- Preheat the oven to 375° F and line a baking tray with parchment paper.
- Mix 3/4 cup oats, flaxseed, chia seeds, hemp seeds, pumpkin seeds, coconut, milk, maple syrup, and apple sauce together in a blender or food processor until well combined.
- Let the mixture sit for 5+ minutes.
- Remove mixture from the blender or food processor and stir in the remaining 1/4 cup of oats.
- For the crust, press and spread mixture onto the lined baking tray forming a circle — roughly 1/4 inch thick.

- Let the crust cool and top as desired. I used yogurt, almond butter, and chocolate hummus as the spreads. Topped with fresh fruits, nuts, and seeds.
