This almost – raw vegan pizza is so delicious and satisfying-you do not want anything else. You can use cucumber or zucchini for the crust. The “cheese” taste so delicious and its nice and “cheesy”. The “cheese” contains no dairy! Its way better than dairy “cheese”. This is REAL “cheese”. Unfortunately, the “cheese” is 100% raw fue to the nutritional yeast. But the rest of the ingredients are raw. You can add whatever you’d like as the topping (as long as its raw vegan).
Here’s the recipe:
2-4 cucumbers or zucchini, peeled
1 cup raw cashews, soaked for 1-12 hours
1/2 red bell pepper
1 tsp sea or pink salt
1/2 cup Bragg’s apple cider vinegar
1/2 cup nutritional yeast
1/4 cup water
1 cup fresh tomatoes (about 3 heirlooms)
2 cups sun dried tomatoes
2-4 pitted dates, to add a bit sweetness
Pinch of salt
4-6 leaves Spinach
1 tbsp coconut oil
Italian spices like: thyme, parsley, cloves; 1 tsp each)
2-3 garlic cloves
For the CRUST:
* Peel the cucumber or zucchini. Using a mandaline slicer, slice a thin or thick (how ever width you like it). Or using a knife, cut thin or thick slices. You could lay the cucumber or zucchini down on the cutting board or stand up. Set aside on your plate.
For the “CHEESE”:
* Blend all ingredients in blender until creamy. Pour cheese in a bowl and chill for at least 30 minutes or longer. The “cheese” is best when chilled. (This “cheese” recipe was used in the veggie burger recipe that you can find here: Raw Vegan Veggie Burger and Cheddar Cheese
For the TOMATO SAUCE:
* Blend all ingredients in the blender until smooth, thick, and saucy. Pour into a bowl. You can chill in the refrigerator until ready to be used.
TOPPINGS & GARNISHES – (I used):
Sliced black olives
Of course, you can add whatever. Here are some options:
Red bell pepper
Italian spices, etc!
* Take your sliced crust, and add the “cheese”, tomato sauce, and garnish with toppings. Optional-place your pizza bites on a dehydrator tray and dehydrate at 105 for 15-30 minutes, or until no more water. Dehydrate to your dry liking. Enjoy your pizza bites!:)
