Raw Living Pizza Recipe

Easy versatile raw crust
Raw Living Pizza


Ingredients
1 cup flaxseed (essential for the right consistency)
2 cups of any other nuts or seeds
- I prefer almonds, walnuts, sunflower seeds, hemp seeds or buckwheat but you can use any type of seed/nut
- nuts do not have to be soaked
- buckwheat is the best sprouted
water to achieve desired consistency (about 1 cup)

Optional

1 tbs cold-preseed oil (any type – olive, flaxseed, hemp,…)
2-3 tbs spices (e.g. 'Italian style' basil, rosemary and thyme,...)
1 clove garlic
2 tbs minced onion
1 tbs nama shoyu / tamari / nutritional yeast
1 zucchini / carrot / stalk celery
3 tbs sesame seeds / chia seeds
3 tbs sprouts
1 tbs probiotic powder, green powder

Preparation
1. Process nuts and seeds in your Vitamix blender / food processor
2. Add the rest of the ingredients and process until smooth or slightly crumbly.

3. Let the dough sit for about one hour.
4. Roll the dough out to form crust using rollpin or your own hands (clean and dry, of course).
You can create one large pizza crust or a couple of small ones. Be creative with the sizes and shapes - circles, squares, triangles. Especially fun for visitors and parties.
5. Dehydrate on 105 degrees for 5-10 hours or so until completely dry.
Halfway through dehydrating flip the crusts over so that the air can circulate through more evenly.
If you make extra crusts, you can store them in your freezer and take them out whenever your taste buds demand some raw pizza treat!

Raw red tomato sauce


5 fresh tomatoes

5 sundried tomatoes (soaked)
1 cup pitted olives
2 pitted dates
1 tbs olive oil
2 tbs dried / 1 cup fresh spice (or more) - basil / oregano / thyme / cumin / sage / majoram / mint / parsley / chilli / pepper
1 clove garlic
1/6 onion
1 tbs raw apple cider vinegar

Rawzzarella cheese sauce


1 cup raw cashews
1 tbs nutritional yeast / white miso
1 tbs lemon juice

Raw pizza toppings


Spread with raw red sauce, rawzzarella sauce, raw pesto, raw hummus, or any other sauce and/or top with your fave pizza toppings, such as:

bell peppers - thin sliced
fresh tomatoes - thin sliced / cherry tomato halves
sun dried tomatoes
olives
spinach
sprouts
pineapple
fresh herbs (basil, oregano)
garlic and/or onion
mushrooms (I like to put them into a dehydrator for a couple of hours so they get 'golden' colour and the typical 'mushroomy' taste gets stronger)

For some ingredients (e.g. tomatoes) it is a good idea to pulse them in a blender or food processor for a second until chopped, but still kind of chunky.

You can either enjoy your raw pizza as is or dehydrate for extra 2 hours or so - so it appears more 'cooked'.
