Raw Pizza Recipe

Who doesn’t love Pizza?

I often want pizza a few nights a week! Living in tropical north Queensland it gets quite hot at night at times and raw pizza is a nice refreshing meal i know i can enjoy.

So, whether you live in a hot place or you just enjoy raw food and their benefits this recipe is for you!

Ingredients:-

2 cups of almond meal. (You can mill your own or buy fresh almond meal, I get mine from The Source Bulk Foods)

1 cup of ground flaxseeds. (Same as above)

1 tsp of psyllium husks.

Psyllium husk is a wonderful fiber that is used in raw foods, mostly in dehydration for wraps and pizza bases. It is water soluble and sucks up all the water then making the consistency pliable. When using this ingredient you must move quite quickly as it is so absorbent it can become a big ball of gloop, still usable although harder to work with.

1 tsp of dried oregano

1 tsp of dried basil

1 garlic clove

1 quarter of red or brown onion

3 cups of water

Method:-

Using a high speed blender – Place all ingredients into your blender jug except water. Blend on high speed until mixed thoroughly. Now add water and let stand for 1 minute. The Flaxseed meal and Pysllium will start to absorb the liquid.

Now line a dehydration tray with tiflex and pour your ‘batter’ onto the tray. Using a flat spatchular level out evenly to the height of your own choice – not to thin otherwise it will crack throughout dehydration.  Ideally 1-2cm is okay.

You can form into a round or a square pizza.

Place in to the dehydrator for 8-10 hours on 41degrees. Flipping at the half way mark.

If by 8 hours you would like it more crunchy, dehydrate for a further 2 hours or so.

Top with your own veggie creation and ENJOY!

Health Benefits:-

Rich in Omega 3 gifted from flaxseed

High in Fiber from Psyllium Husk

Rich in vitamins and minerals from Almonds – particularly vitamin E

Maintaining the temperature below 41dregees retains enzymes which is crucial for healing the digestive system.
