Baked Pancake Breakfast Pizza (Vegan, Oil Free, Sugar Free)

Baked Pancake Breakfast Pizza (Vegan, Oil Free, Sugar Free, Gluten Free Option)

Can you tell I totally got the anxious frits when trying to decide what to title this post? “Is it a pancake? Or a pizza crust? Well it’s a pancake… but it’s baked! So it’s a pizza… but it’s for breakfast! Ahhh…Baked Pancake Breakfast Pizza!”

And exhale…

Baked Pancake Breakfast Pizza

I’m really hitting you guys up with the breakfast recipes aren’t I? Not just breakfast, but two breakfast pizzas in the same month? What can I say. Breakfast is the only meal these days that seem to be garnering any bit of creativity. Lunch and dinner are pushed to the leftovers band wagon. And you really are better off not having me post any those…

However, if I were to get creative with dinner any time soon, you know what I’d make?


My favorite meal hands down. What isn’t amazing about a meal you can pick up with your hands and top with any array of toppings you desire.

SOOO whats a girl to do when her favorite course is breakfast but favorite meal is pizza? Annnnd she has a sweet tooth like a kid on their first hallowe’en without their parents… 

Make a sweet version of a Baked Pancake Breakfast Pizza. That’s what. 

Baked Pancake Breakfast Pizza

I’m all about experimenting with different crust options lately, but also with different pancake recipes. I just love trying different flours and combinations. And I’m always so impressed when so few ingredients are needed to get amazing results!  This recipe came about when I couldn’t decide between the two – pancakes or pizza.

Baked Pancake Breakfast Pizza

After a couple experiments, I came up with this ridiculously simple and easy recipe that is sturdier than an average pancake yet still has the same sweet and fluffy factor I was craving. Its absolutely perfect to pick up with your hands and has won many a topping tests. Oh, and its baked in the oven so you get a whole 25 minutes to go get yourself pretty for the day (not that it would take you any time at all).

Only 5 ingredients (not counting cinnamon and vanilla), vegan, oil free and sugar free…. these experiments just keep fascinating me.   

I used buckwheat flour and tried combining it with both spelt and quinoa flour. Personally, I am partial to the quinoa flour version (as last week’s breakfast recipe can speak to). Spelt, however, also worked perfectly well and thus regular whole wheat flour could also be a fine substitute.  If you can have gluten, go wild. 

If you go the buckwheat/quinoa version though, do you know you are actually getting a double dose of pseudo cereals? Yup… not a true grain in sight.

As for those toppings? I simply mixed a combination of cream cheese and coconut flavored yogurt to a make a smooth and decadent “frosting” and then layered on my breakfast pepperoni. Aka strawberries and bananas. How pretty for the upcoming summer months, no??

Not to self. Don’t say breakfast pepperoni.

Did you ever go to a pizza buffet as a child and gorge on the fruity, sugar laden dessert pizzas? One of my favorite birthday party memories.

    Yum this looks AMAZING. One of my roommates made dessert pizza once but she used actual piza dough so it was a bit weird. A pancake pizza sounds way better!

    • Cora | 27th Apr 16

      I think that’s what the restaurants would use, though they were probably deep fried enough that nothing else mattered. I’ll take a pancake version nowadays πŸ™‚

  2. Stephanie Leduc | 26th Apr 16

    This is weird, the other day I used Oat flour and Chia seeds to make pancakes and it ended up becoming a really sturdy type of pancake… reminds me a lot of this even if the ingredients aren’t at all the same. I wasn’t a fan of the result but now I realise I could have turned it into a pizza!!!! I absolutely love this recipe, I’ll give this a go with Oat flour and whole wheat flour and see how it turns out!

    • Cora | 27th Apr 16

      I would think the chia seeds would have made it super solid… like your recent mug cake? (which I’m excited to try out). Let me know if it turns out with other flours!!

    I am ALL IN on your breakfast pizza recipes lately – keep them coming to feed this breakfast feign over here. After trying your sweet potato crust (did I tell you how amazing it was?!), I can’t wait to make this. And not only full of nutrition, but it’s so pretty and colorful! <3

      I’m sooooo happy the sweet potato crust turned out for you! Hopefully this one does the same if you get a chance to make it.

  5. Heather @ Polyglot Jot | 26th Apr 16

    baked pancakes?! YES! I’ll swap the cream cheese for vegan cream cheese and call it a day–this looks so good!! You’re on a roll with the breakfast delights! haha

    • Cora | 27th Apr 16

      Thanks Em! Best meal of the day πŸ™‚

  7. Kate | 26th Apr 16

    gosh, can I just order this from your restaurant? It looks so good! I love how creative you are with the flours. More reason for me to make it to the bulk bins.
    I am right there with you when it comes to pizza. Even bad pizza is still pretty good πŸ˜‰

      Flours are so fun. I get pretty excited/overwhelmed in the bulk barn flour isle. So many options nowadays!

  8. sarah | 26th Apr 16

    This looks so good! And so easy to make, you are so creative!

    Oh man this looks so good! The only problem I would have is the waiting 25 minutes!!! It might have to be a “brinner” for me because I might be able to wait then πŸ˜‰ I’ve never used buckwheat flour, but my co-op has it so I’ll have to grab some the next time I’m there. Cheers Cora! Thanks for the recipe

      Haha I hear ya. Which is why I put it in right away and then get everything else ready as it bakes. Though it would totally be awesome for brinner too!!
      I have a feeling you’d like buckwheat flour. Its so great for pancakes and any kind of breakfast bake… would go perfectly with your bananas!

  10. cookiesnchem | 28th Apr 16

    Oh, this looks amazing! Think of all the incredible nut-buttery toppings you could add. I’m in love! Are there any subs for buckwheat flour?
