Plantain Flatbread of Pizza Crust Recipe

Adapted from


  • 4 cups peeled and cubed GREEN plantain pieces (3 or 4 green plantains)

  • 1-3 cloves garlic

  • 1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil

  • 1/3 to 1 cup water

  • 1 tsp. sea salt


  1. Place all ingredients in your VitaMix OR food processor/blender, starting with 1/3 cup water. If you want it super garlicy, add the 3 cloves – the one clove just covers the plantain flavor.  (Which isn’t entirely bad! Feel free to use no garlic.)  Make sure the black tamper is in the lid.
  2. Puree starting on low, and working higher, using the tamper to push down the plantain. You want it to be smooth – and add more water as necessary. You want to add as little as possible, but some plantains seem drier than others 
  3. When it is smooth and well pureed, spread “dough/paste” on a parchment lined or greased cookie sheet.
  4. Bake at 400 degrees for 20-25 minutes.


*Food Processor Version
  1.  Put your plantain and garlic in the food processor.
  2. Process until it is in small pieces and scrape down.  Make sure it is uniform. You don’t want to bite into a chunk of garlic!
  3. Add the remaining ingredients, starting with 1/3 cup of water. This recipe will very likely need more than that.
  4. Process, scrape the sides, process, scrape sides. Make sure it is as smooth as possible!
  5. Follow the above instruction steps 3 & 4.
