I typically get my produce at the farmer’s market, but Amazon Fresh has fast delivery on organic produce in a pinch.
I love adding broccoli sprouts, or other sprouts on top for an added nutritional boost.
The edible flowers add a fun little pop of color, but of course are not crucial for the recipe if you can’t find them. I get them at the farmers market, they are very inexpensive. The yellow flowers are brassica or broccoli flowers, and the pinkish ones are radish flowers.
For the dough, salt, olive oil, and any other packaged goods, I always get them at Vitacost, which is typically 25-50% cheaper than grocery store prices, for the same organic and natural brands. I’ve linked to my preferred brands below:
For dough, I love to use the Simple Mills Artisan bread mix. Out of all the gluten-free bread mixes I’ve tried, Simple Mills has the best ingredients and tastes amazing.
For salt, I primarily use Himalayan pink salt, which contains dozens of trace minerals, and adds beautiful flavor to every dish.
For olive oil, I have tried so many, and find this Gaea olive oil to be my favorite. I like that it is in a dark glass bottle to protect the antioxidants in the oil, its a nice deep yellow color, and it is very tasty. I find compared to other olive oils, it’s truly high quality at a good price. You could also use avocado oil instead.
For apple cider vinegar, I prefer Bragg’s Organic Raw Apple Cider Vinegar. It’s unfiltered and contains the “mother”.
