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 Brian! Sounds like you are on a ROLL! Well done :)

Great question.

If you want to use them, just take them 1 (or however many you want to use) out of the freezer and put in fridge to let them thaw out and get back to normal.

Then, once they have defrosted in the fridge, just add a sauce (the raw ranch works great!) and some chopped veg (green pepper, sundried tomatoes, onions, etc) then dehydrate for 1-2 hours.

PS: You don't HAVE to freeze them at all, you can make pizzas with them once the crust is dehydrated. You could conceivably make your crusts, then once the crust is ready just add sauce and veg, pop back into dehydrator for a couple more hours.

Hope this helps!

Hello,
I would like to buy a dehydrator to make raw pizzas, breads, crackers and dried fruit. Can you recommend me a decent dehydrator please because I have never used one and it is very difficult to choose - there are so many different ones at the market nowadays.
Thanks.

Hi Kasia,

Best dehydrator is 9-tray excalibur, hands down. But... it is expensive! http://tinyurl.com/ah6o3qt

You can also get a Vegikiln - they are cheaper, white, not as "reputable" but they get the job done: http://tinyurl.com/avb59e3

You should get a 8-to-10-tray, and do not get a round dehydrator.

Hello! This looks soo yummy!! I don't have a dehydrator yet so do you think I could make this in the oven at a low temp? I know it wouldn't be 100% raw but I want to try this really bad!! Thanks for the recipe!

Hi Stacey, no sorry. It will not work in a regular oven. Best to hold off until you get a dehydrator :)

Hi April, I don't tend to use teflex - I usually use parchment paper since it's disposable (less to clean.

I've been wanting to go raw and just got a dehydrator. The one thing I've been having a hard time imagining going without is baked products - bread, crackers, pizza dough, etc. - and LOVE that I found your website!

If I used prepackaged almond meal or almond flour in your recipes, how much flour would I use (since the recipe measures the almonds whole prior to grinding)? Grinding the whole almonds is probably best nutritionally, but just I'm just curious :)

Thank you for such a wonderful raw recipe resource!

Hi Savannah, you can use a 1:1 ratio (or perhaps slightly less pre-ground flour).

Do you have any recipes that do not use almonds? They are very expensive. Not practical for those on a budget.
I also wanted to point out that you mention buying flax seeds pre-ground, but flax seed go rancid very quickly and even more quickly if pre-ground, I've always read that you shouldn't by flax seed pre-ground because of that. Rancid flax seed tastes fishy, not very appetizing!

Hi Dawn, you could try substituting the almonds for sunflower seeds in this recipe. I haven't tried it myself but it is a reasonable substitution. Also, you may be interested in episode number 5 of the raw food podcast, which outlines what nuts can be substituted http://www.therawtarian.com/rfp05-nut-substitutions

I just put a batch of pizza dough in the dehydrator. I didn't have flax meal so I put a cup of flax seed in my vita mix and put the almonds on top of them- Tada! almond/flax meal. The stuff rolled out beautifully. Among the things I love about eating raw is that it's hard to screw up a recipe. Btw, if this turns out badly I'll let you know:-)

I threw in some sesame seeds and rolled the dough to about 1/8 ". We now have pizza dough/crackers. I made a raw vegetable soup out of odds and ends in the crisper and served the soup with raw cheese. BTW, I've lost 15 pounds in a little over three months, and I haven't really tried.

"I've lost 15 pounds in a little over three months, and I haven't really tried." That's the ticket! It's kind of a byproduct of eating this way :)

This was great! Also, instead of forming little crusts, I spread out all the "dough" on the tray and scored it into triangles that turned out wonderfully!

I am new to eating raw. Well besides eating salads and fruit all my life. lol. I just bought a dehydrator at a great price from the internet with a lot of researching done. Didn't want to buy an expensive one to start just to see how i go. Well the first thing i actually wanted to make was pizza.... So i did. It turned out great and delicious and not as hard as i thought it would be. Very satisfying.

I have had great success with this recipe. We love it. Not exactly pizza, but very tasty. I bought a small wooden rolling pin from Amazon that flattens the crusts very well. I keep it wet by dipping it in water, and I let the weight of the tool do the work. I've found that if I exert any force I lose batter to the rolling pin. Thanks so much for the good work L-J.

Glad you liked Lance. Not quite pizza but ... an approximation, right? :) Love a good rolling pin!

Thank you for this recipe! I had two cups whole flaxseed soaked in two cups water for about 3 hours when I came across your website and this pizza dough recipe (I was prepping for a flaxseed cracker). Since I don't yet have a coffee grinder to grind the flaxseed, on a whim, I made your recipe substituting part of my now gelatinous flaxseed to the ground almond until the consitency seemed right (approx one and two/thirds cup). I omitted the water and added the rest of your ingredients and it came out in good form and tasting great - just another option. Thank you so much for what you have put together here!
