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 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..

Hi Bekah,

Hooray for transformation of your life!! I am assuming that it was a good transformation, BTW. Although it always is :)

Sadly, it is necessary to dehydrate. But don't fear, I didn't get a real dehydrator til I was probably raw for at least six months or something like that.

There's a lot of equipment to buy, so most people don't get everything right away.

You can try making it and putting them in your oven at the lowest temp with your oven door propped open a little bit, but in my experience that never works very well and the results are always disappointing.

I suggest really mastering the non-dehydrated stuff (lots of good recipes here!! first before dabbling too much with dehydrator recipes w/o a dehydrator. Talk about frustrating!

Good luck!!! And keep me posted :)

Living in the third world has re-inspired my creativity. If you live where it is sunny you can build a sun-based dehydrator. Lots of plans on-line. In fact, you have inspired me to add one (as soon as I get a chance) on
In the mean time, if you have sun and a car, you may already have a dehydrator. A friend's mother used to make fruit leather by blending the ingredients, driving to work, parking her car facing north, putting a jellyroll pan on the shelf under the rear window and pouring in the mix. When it was time to go home she had fruit leather and her car smelled really nice.

Back in the 60's,while living a rustic lifestyle, we built all kinds of fancy solar dehydrators. However, the one that always worked best was the old car. Just remember to leave a crack in the window to let the moisture out...

I am curious what you mean by dehydrating in "the old car"? Sounds interesting but not quite sure what you mean. :-)

Sorry with all the q's, but its nice to talk to someone that is informative.Did a google search and that's how I landed on your page.What about a toaster oven? I have a mini one. I've been craving pizza =)I'm still learning all of the non-dehydrated recipes. Love the kale salad and raw brownies.

Thanks mucho!

No problem Bekah. I think you will probably have equally disastrous results with a toaster oven though :(

Hope helpful!
