Directions

  • 1. Throw your fresh almond pulp in a big mixing bowl. (Almond pulp is the leftovers from making raw almond milk. If you don't have almond pulp make this raw pizza crust recipe instead.)
  • 2. Add the rest of the ingredients to the bowl that contains the almond pulp. Stir/combine with a spoon or even your hands. Your recipe should now resemble the texture of pizza dough, but a tiny but crumblier.
  • 3. Line a dehydrator tray with parchment paper. Dump the mixture onto the parchment paper. Press the mixture down with your hands into one big sheet. Press it down firmly so that it will stick together into one huge pizza crust, like a square pan pizza.
  • 4. Dehydrate on high for 1 1/2 hours, then reduce heat to 105 degrees and dehydrate for another 7-10 hours or so. Halfway through dehydrating your raw pizza crust score the pieces with a knife where you will want to cut the pizza crusts. I suggest cutting into six large pieces.
  • 5. Dehydrate them until completely dry.
  • 6. Once your raw pizza crusts are done store them in a big ziploc bag and place in the freezer. That way you have raw pizza crusts ready to be thawed and used whenever. :)

The Rawtarian's Thoughts

By The Rawtarian

This recipe is specifically for people with excess almond pulp from making almond milk. If you don't have almond pulp go here and make this raw pizza crust recipe instead.

Note: I like to use 1 tablespoon dried rosemary, 1 tablespoon dried thyme and 1 tablespoon dried basil. But you can omit or tweak the ratios. For example, you can use 1 1/2 tablespoons basil and 1 1/2 tablespoons thyme if you don't have rosemary, etc.  Or you can just leave spices out if you are in a rush. Also, do not ever use more than 1 tbsp rosemary 'cause that stuff is intense!

I usually make this almond pulp pizza crust recipe right after making almond pulp, 'cause it's pretty quick and it gets rid of my excess almond pulp problem since I make almond milk from scratch in my blender at least once a week.

Once your crusts are done, you can make raw pizza later with the crusts by simply spreading thawed or refrigerated crusts with a pizza sauce (like raw tomato sauce or raw pesto) and adding toppings (onion, green pepper, sun-dried tomato, pineapple, etc), then dehydrating again for 2 hours or so. Sooo good!

Hi, we tried this recipe and it looked good but tasted very bitter. Could it be because we added too much flaxseed meal or herbs? Is there anyway to make it less bitter? We will be posting an update on our first raw pizza experience on our blog too. And we love reading the wonders of raw food magic from your site!

Cheers,
Roland & Priscilla

Great recipe! Would love to see more recipes to use nut pulp since I'm a big fan of nut milk and would like to make the most of the leftover!
I made this pizza crust a few weeks ago and put it straight in the freezer. I took it out of the freezer and into the fridge three days ago (Been busy, didn't manage to use it!) Do you think it's still safe to use it tonight for dinner? I often struggle knowing for how long nut pulp stays in the fridge too. Any tips would be great! Thanks a lot!

Hi, I usually dehydrate the almond pulp then pulse it in the Vitamix Dry Blender to use as flour for raw breads. If I do that, can the pulp replace the 2 cups almonds in your other crust alternative since the moisture has been dehydrated out?

Hey there.. I want to try this recipe but I have a very old dehydrator and it only has on and off haha I don't even know what temperature it goes up to! Would this still be okay and I would just leave it in for 12 hours or so?

Hi Lidia! Yes, that should be fine. I'd check it around 7 hours - since I assume your dehydrator will be higher than 105 degrees if it just has on/off :)

Made this in my cheapo dehydrator and loved it. It turned out great. At the time I didn't have any ingredients for a topping. However I enjoyed them as pizza crackers. They had a really satisfying bready texture. They took a long time in my dehydrator but that may be because I left the timer on the default setting and it switched itself off overnight due to this. It only took a further two hours after I switched it back on.

That's great, Sophie! I'm glad they still turned out despite the dehydrator turning off!

I made this pizza for tonight's dinner...raw pizza base topped with hemp basil pesto, walnut Cheeze crumbles and fresh tomato slices. I am going to assemble it just before serving so it doesn't go soggy. Can't wait for dinner now! Thanks Rawtarian for another awesome recipe. :)

When you say "high" on your dehydrator, what temp is that approximately? I have an Excalibur which will go to 155, but I thought raw eaters only cook to ~115 or so.

Hi Shane!

As you know, when dehydrating raw food it is important to keep the enzymes alive by dehydrating at 105 degrees Fahrenheit (40.6 degrees Celsius) or lower.

However, I recommend turning your dehydrator on “high” (145 degrees) for about 1.5 hours when first putting food in the dehydrator, and then decreasing the temperature to 105 degrees after 1.5 hours or so.

I suggest this because the initial warmer temperature will help to take away a lot of the moisture at first, and the thinking is that it takes a while for your dehydrator to climb up to “high” and it also takes quite a while for the food to actually get to the temperature that the dehydrator air is at so it is still safe for raw foodists.

One of the best side-effects of setting your temperature higher at first is that it’s good at getting rid of the initial moisture quite quickly. Increasing the temperature at the beginning of cooking time is common practice in the raw food community. If you are not mindful about turning the heat back down after 1.5 hours, yes, your food will be heated above 105 degrees. However, this risk is warranted. That initial heat blast can really save you a lot of time and can accelerate the dehydrating process by quite a bit, even by 50% sometimes.

For me, I do strive to live a 100% raw lifestyle; however, I also make some slight tweaks to the “rules” in order to ensure that I can stay raw over the long-term.

Is there any possibility that you could add a print friendly button to your recipes? I am spending a lot of time re-writing them to use in the kitchen. I have tried cutting and pasting so I can print, but the formatting is all over the place :(

Hi there!

Thank you so much for this recipe! I got my new excalibur dehydrator on the weekend and tried giving this a go last night! I didn't quite put the dehydrator up as high (only to 120) for the first 1 1/2 hours followed by 9 hours of 115 and this morning i woke up to find the bottom side still a little damp? Is it possible to put it back in the dehydrator for another few hours? I couldn't find any information regarding using the dehydrator more than once anywhere online!

Your help would be really appreciated!

Hi Claire,

Great question - yes, you can definitely put it back in for a few hours. But generally, you don't want to stop and start too many times because that can be bad for food safety

I love this pizza crust! I haven't made any other raw crusts to compare it with, but I like this one - it was very easy to make, I didn't screw up the thickness (as I have done with all crackers so far) and it tasted incredibly amazing with toppings! I added my own version of raw tomato sauce, my own raw pesto, some bell peppers & hot peppers... wow. So refreshingly light & delicious, savory & very satisfying!

I don't have a dehydrator (yet). Could I do this at my oven' slowest setting and achieve similar results?

Hi Kristen,

No, I'm sorry it won't work in an oven. Best to wait until you get a dehydrator.

Question - my boyfriend and I love trying new raw recipes and try to pass on healthy alternatives to our friends and family when we can. Is this crust able to be baked in the oven by chance? We use it in the dehydrator and love it, but for others that might want to try it in a more 'traditional' way I didn't know if it would come out the same if baked? Thank you.....and thank you for this site, FANTASTIC!

Hi Rebecca, I haven't tried it myself. I don't think it would change too much if baked though, it won't rise or anything. If you try it, I'd love to know how it turns out. But overall I say just go with the dehydrator. You can just not tell them it was dehydated :) Just say it's a flatbread :)
