Easy Raw Pizza

Easy Raw Pizza


The last time we visited my mother-in-law, she ordered delicious Raw Pizza for me which I just devoured.  As soon as I got home, I needed to make my own – one that required the least amount of time, the least amount of ingredients and still be yummy.  This week, I have been indulging in a very simple Cheeze Pizza and my husband, a California Pizza Kitchen Thai Pizza Lover, inspired me to create this Raw Thai Pizza.  After eating one large pizza pie to himself, he exclaimed: “That is a yummy raw pizza!”

Ummm, need I say more?


Sprouted Buckwheat Pizza Crust

Soak in water overnight:

2 cups buckwheat groats

Rinse and drain buckwheat well.  Add to food processor with:

1 garlic clove, chopped

2 tsp sea salt

1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil

1/4 cup water

1/2 cup flax seed meal

2 medium zucchinis, chopped

Dehydrating Pizza Crust

Spread on Texflex sheets, makes 3 large ones or 6 small pizzas.  Dehydrate 8 – 12 hours, then turn out onto mesh screens and dehydrate another 1 – 2 hours at 105F.  Alternatively, dehydrate on full at 150F for 1 – 2 hours, decrease to 105F and dehydrate until dry but still soft, 2 – 4 hours.

    Looks wonderful! Just wondering how to get started on this lifestyle. It seems like it would take so much perpetration that it scares me (I’m a bit of an unirganized mess…we eat mostly organic and are vegan) I just don’t know where to begin. I really want to try it out!

      Hi Tonya, you know, when eating more RAW, I actually spend LESS time in the kitchen. We prefer a lot of smoothies and chopped salads than the dehydrated stuff and juicing because the latter just take so much time. The sprouting has a long waiting time, but the actual work is less than 5 minutes. If you look under RESEARCH and TIPS, take a look at “How To Transition” and “Tips to get…”. I hope these posts help you. I find that starting with snacks (make it all raw: fruits, nuts, veggies with dip) then when you get used to that make breakfast all raw (raw oatmeal, fruit pudding, nut granola)… then when you get used to that… add smoothies and salads to all the meals… pretty soon, you’ll get more RAW into your and your family’s meals… and it will seems so easy. Just one step at a time, versus changing everything in one day, which may seem overwhelming. The slower the process, the more lasting the change on lifestyle. Good luck and let me know how else I can help!

    This sounds soooo delicious. I’m adding this recipe to my list of Reasons to Buy a Dehydrator.
