    I think i've discovered syn free pastry???

    Hi all,
    I'm after abit of advice - please!
    Would this be free on a green day or would it have syns?
    I was trying to make a polenta pizza base but it tasted more like pastry. So i'm thinking I could make up mince and onion or steak and onion in a small casserole dish and then make this as the pastry and plonk it on top before serving, but would it be syn free?
    I know that there's some debate over polenta.
    Here's the recipe anyway.
    Ingredients.
    140g Polenta.
    S and P.
    1 egg yolk.
    Water.
    Place polenta in a bowl. Add enough water to make a firm paste. Season. (I also added some mixed herbs) Stir in the egg yolk. Spray a tray with frylight. Place dough onto tray, flatten with your fingers until about 1 cm deep.
    pre-heat the oven to 220 degrees.

    * For pizza base, bake for 5 minutes, remove from the oven then add your toppings and cheese. And return to the oven for another 5 minutes.
    * For pastry, bake for approx 10 minutes.
    So do you think it's free or should i syn it?
    Either way it tastes great And i'm looking forward to eating pie and chips!!
    TIA

    Hi
    Sorry, I was just asking about the polenta being free. (As some say it has syns if used as a flour but in the Sw cook book they use it for corn bread) I should have made it clearier in my post. Obviously the meat would be a HE B. Or completely free on EE. But you all agree that the polenta is free on green.
    Cheers.

    I know it is used in the corn bread recipe but shouldn't it be synned as it is being used as a flour substitute? Or is that just when it is ground? I am not sure really.

    It isn't as though you will have a massive portion and it wouldn't be on a regular basis (daily, I mean!) so I would give it a go!!
