Recipe Directions

  • 1. Throw almonds in food processor. Start processing and keep going until they look almond meal. This is the most important step. Basically, it should look almost as fine as flour. You are creating flour out of almonds!
  • 2. Throw your almond meal in a big mixing bowl.
  • 3. Add the rest of the ingredients to the bowl that contains the almond meal. Stir/combine with a wooden spoon or even your hands. Your recipe should now resemble the texture of pizza dough!
  • 4. Make small pizza crusts out of the dough. You want them quite thin, about 1/4 inch thick. You can try to use a rolling pin, but in my experience the dough is a bit too sticky to roll. I usually make 8 or so single-serving pizza crusts using my dry, clean hands. If your hands get too sticky wash your hands and dry them again. It's easiest to make your raw pizza crusts into circles, but it's also fun to shape them into triangles (make a square out of the dough and then cut into a triangle with a knife so you get clean edges), like pizza slices. However, only bother trying to make triangles if you are going to have guests over for dinner.
  • 5. Place your raw pizza crusts on parchment paper or teflex sheets inside your dehydrator. 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 pie crusts youshould remove the parchment/teflex and flip the pie crusts over so that the air can circulate better. 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

Raw pizza crust recipes have always scared me. Why are there so many ingredients? Why do all the raw pizza recipes use "buckwheat" and "zucchini" and other raw ingredients that I never keep in my pantry on a regular basis?? I have been a 100% raw vegan for over 2 years and I have never attempted raw pizza because I feel overwhelmed whenever I look at a raw pizza recipe... Too many ingredients and steps!!

So here you go. I have finally tackled this for you: a super easy and quick raw pizza crust recipe that actually tastes awesome and is a perfect base for raw pizza because it has a very neutral flavor with just a hint of Italian pizza spices.

Oh now, are you wondering how the @#$%#@ do you actually make raw pizza? Let's not overcomplicate things here. Basically, first you need raw pizza crusts. Make them first and store them in your freezer. That's step one. Don't think about anything else yet!

PS: If anyone is wondering about what the heck to do with a dehydrated pizza crust here's a sneak-peak into what to do with it:

Take a dry pizza crust (one that has already been dehydrated). Spread with raw pizza sauce or raw pesto. Top with your fav pizza toppings (pineapple, green pepper, sun dried tomatoes, mushrooms, whatever) then dehydrate for 2 hours or so - just to warm it up and to get the veggie toppings to dry up a bit. Tadah! Pizza :)

Hi Laura-Jane,
I have a bag of almond flour in my freezer, could that be a substitute for the almonds?
Also, is almond flour considered raw?

Thank you.

Kind regards,
Renee

I don't have any experience with almond flour. What's in it? If it is purely almonds that are ground up then go for it, but I doubt that the ingredients are that simple! I hope I'm wrong though :)

Hi Lori,

They won't rise. You probably need to spread them thinner. Also, what temp are you dehydrating at? What kind of dehydrator do you have?

a friend told me of one she ate at a store like a deli while traveling, and they sounded so yummy and was veggie based. i would love to try one if you know a good place to start.
thanks

Yes, I have a couple of good recipes, but the only one I've posted here is probably onion bread. It lends itself well to wrapping, here's recipe: http://therawtarian.com/raw-onion-bread-recipe/

i found one other wrap, it started with sun dried tomatoes but all i can find is dried tomatoes in oil they come in a bottle. is that what they are talking about? i am looking at getting the dehydrator soon, can i dry some tomatoe slices in there and come out to sun dried?
thanks very much for all your help

Yes, you can dehydrate them yourself, although I don't b/c I am lazy!

Best to buy them not in oil. You should be able to find them dry in a grocery story. Sometimes they are in produce section in a little plastic sac/bag near the fresh tomatoes. Most grocery stores carry them in oil AND dry too so just ask.

Also, bulk food retailers usually carry them too.

PS: I emailed you just now, sorry for the delay!

thanks for the recipe, it looks amazing! I'm new to the raw lifestyle, and I was wondering what sort of paper you use? is it waxed or unwaxed?

It is called "parchment paper" or "baking paper."

It is very different from "waxed" paper, do not use waxed paper.

Hope that helps!

This is definitely one awesome way to make a pizza crust. I have never tried it with quite that ratio of almonds to flax. Perhaps I'll try that next time I make a pizza. :D

I am really excited to try this one! I have made Russel James' pizza before and there were SO MANY STEPS that I didn't even enjoy the dish when it was done. I am sure this one will be different :)

Awesome Idea about pre-making and freezing them! It will save so much time later on!

I am glad to read that you've tried raw pizza before. It is tasty, but generally quite complicated--especially when reading the directions.

I hope that if you try this one it comes out well and you're able to enjoy it. :)

Your recipes are incredible! Thank you so much for sharing them.
I was wondering if I could add ground psyllium husk to the pizza crust recipe to give it more density/sponginess?
I'm planning a meal for Saturday, so I'd love to know your thoughts before just trying it and taking a chance on it not coming out as well.

Thanks in advance,
Stacee

Hi Laura-Jane,
I love your inspirational blog and great recipes. I've been a raw foodist for about two and half months and it has transformed my life =) Is it necessary to dehydrate the crust? I do not own a dehydrator. The lowest temp that my oven goes down to is 200 degrees..
Thanks!
Bekah
