Mini Raw Pizza

This dish is super colorful and fun to prepare!  If you want to get a variety of foods in your diet and have a healthy balance, these mini pizzas are great for that.  These pizzas were easy to make with the raw binding ingredients.  This recipe has a mix of different seeds that go wonderful together.  In the late summer, somebody gave us these yellow cucumbers and black and green bell peppers.  I started to wonder if there was anything I could do with them.  That day I was planning on making raw pizza, so I decided to use these different toppings to make the pizza pop with color and add a delicious smell.

Be aware, because these raw pizza crusts have a different taste than the real thing, and the flavor is much stronger; I mean that in a good way.  Anything raw is going to be full of a lot of flavor.  It's delicious to have a mix of different kinds of meals, whether they are cooked or raw.

The Raw Super Seed Crust

  • 1/2 Cup ground flax seeds
  • 1/4 cup hemp seeds
  • 3/4 cup sunflower seeds (soak them upto 8 hours)
  • 3/4 avocado 
  • 1/2 red bell pepper
  • 2 tbsps chia seeds (soak them for ten minutes)
  • 3/4 tsp himalayan salt
  • 1/4 cup coconut flour

1. In a food processor, blend the hemp seeds, the red bell pepper, ground flax seeds, and the avocado until the ingredients are mixed in together.

2. In a separate bowl, add the rest of the ingredients and knead the raw dough thoroughly with your hands.

3.  Flatten the dough with a dough flattener or roll some dough in small ball and put them on a cutting board and grab a baggie and tape it to the edges of the bottom of a pot.  With the bottom of the pot, smash the crusts down to the desired shape and size on the cutting board.  Make sure you don't flatten them down too much because the crusts will fall apart.

4. Place the pizza crust rounds in a dehydrator and dehydrate them at 105F for 6-8 hours.

5. When the crusts are finished, serve them with your favorite cheese spread or the cheesy avocado spread and any toppings of your choice.

Cheesy Avocado Spread

  • 4 ripe avocados
  • 2-3 tbsp nutritional yeast
  • 1/4 tsp salt or more
  • 3/4 cup of thinly chopped spinach (optional)
    In a small bowl, add in all of the ingredients and smash the spread with a fork until it's all mixed in and creamy.

Toppings to Assemble:
  • A cucumber 
  • Bell Peppers
  • Tomatoes
  • Raw cheese or a vegan cheese spread (optional)

Cut all the toppings to the desired size and add them on top of the pizza.
