Raw garden pizza

Although this is one of the more time-consuming recipes in my arsenal, it’s also one of my favorites, and I don’t have an ounce of guilt after eating it. You’ll have to plan ahead when making this since it takes nearly a day in the dehydrator, but the actual prep time is pretty minimal.

Ingredients

Sprouted pizza crust

  • 1 chopped celery stalk
  • 1 green onion, chopped
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 3 Tbsp water
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 cup parsley, minced
  • 1/2 cup sunflower seeds, soaked 4-6 hours, rinsed and drained well
  • 1/2 cup pumpkin seeds, soaked 4-6 hours, rinsed and drained well
  • 1/2 cup sesame seeds, soaked 4-6 hours, rinsed and drained well
  • 1/2 cup flax seeds, soaked 4-6 hours in 1 cup water
  • 3 Tbsp ground flax meal
  • 1/2 cup dried sunflower seeds, ground to a meal

Pizza sauce and toppings

  • 1 1/4 cup Roma tomatoes, seeded, drained and chopped
  • 1/4 cup sun-dried tomato powder
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • 3 fresh basil leaves, minced
  • 1/2 tsp garlic, crushed
  • 1/2 Tbsp onion, minced
  • 3/4 tsp fresh oregano, minced
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp lemon juice
  • 1/2 tsp agave nectar
  • 1/4 tsp ground fennel
  • pinch of pepper
  • 3 cups arugula
  • 1 avocado, diced

Instructions

Sprouted pizza crust

  • Place celery, green onion, garlic, water and salt in the food processor outfitted with an “S” blade and process until smooth.
  • Add parsley and pulse briefly — you want big flecks of green.
  • Pour mixture into a bowl and add soaked flaxseed and water; mix well.
  • Sprinkle flax meal and sunflower meal over mixture. Mix well with hands and let stand for 20 minutes.
  • Take 1/3 cup of mixture and form a circle crust on dehydrator tray with non-stick sheet. Should be able to get 4 pizza crusts to each tray.
  • Dehydrate for 10 hours at 115 degrees. Invert the crusts onto a dehydrator mesh sheet and remove nonstick sheet. Continue dehydrating until crusts are completely dry and crisp, about 10 more hours.

Pizza sauce and toppings

  • Combine all ingredients in a blender and puree. Let stand 5 minutes. Drain off any extra juice.
  • Now it’s time to assemble the pizzas. Place a couple tablespoons of sauce onto each crust. Top with arugula and avocado or whatever fresh vegetables you desire.
