  • a 1 persons pizza bottom – like my Grain Free Cassava Pizza Crust
  • 6070 g of Low Histamine Pesto
  • 1 fresh fig, in thin slices
  • 12 red onions
  • 1 tsp (extra virgin) olive oil
  • 10 g pumpkin seeds
  • 1 tsp of honey (optional)
  • a sprinkle of salt
  • 1 big handful of arugula

Cream cheese/yogurt sauce:

  • 2 tbsp (goat) yogurt
  • 1 tbsp (goat) cream cheese
  • 1/2 a scallion, finely sliced
  • salt to taste


  1. For the base of this pizza I used my Grain Free Low Histamine Cassava Pizza Crust. But you can of course use your favorite pizza crust.
  2. Cut the red onions in thin slices. Heat up a frying pan with 1 tsp of olive oil and add the red onions. Cook them while stirring till they get go soft and start to caramelize. Don’t let them burn.
  3. Make the low histamine pesto – following the instructions in my recipe for low histamine pesto.
  4. Top your pizza base with a generous layer of pesto, add the caramelized red onions, and thin slices of figs. Sprinkle with a few pumpkin seeds if you like and give the figs a drizzle with a little honey.
  5. Pop the pizza in the oven for about 8-10 minutes, at 180 °C (360 °F). Be careful to not bake it too long.
  6. And now for the cream cheese/yogurt sauce to drizzle over your pizza! Simply mix the cream cheese and yogurt with some salt and finely sliced scallion.
  7. Take the pizza out of the oven drizzle with the scallion cream cheese/yogurt sauce and top with a big handful of arugula. Enjoy o/
