If you can believe it, this is my very first time making raw pizza!  Crazy, I know!  I suppose I never really cared for trying to recreate American fast-food (pizza, burgers, etc).  But I must admit, this recipe turned out amazing!

Yield: 2 personal pan size pies


Pizza Crust

  • 2 large ripe tomatoes
  • 1 cup almond pulp (from almond mylk)
  • 1/2 cup young Thai coconut meat
  • 1/3 cup golden flax seed meal
  • 2-4 fresh basil leaves
  • 1 medium shallot
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 clove garlic, crushed
  • 1/2 tsp Himalayan salt

Tomato Sauce

  • 1 large ripe tomato
  • 1/2 red bell pepper
  • 1/4 cup sun-dried tomatoes (I like Mediterranean Organic)
  • 2 Tbsp nutritional yeast
  • 1 Tbsp minced herbs (basil, parsley, oregano)
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 Tbsp minced onion
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1/2 tsp Himalayan salt
  • Pinch black pepper

«Mozzarella» Cheese

  • 3/4 cup cashews (soak 2hrs)
  • 1 yellow bell pepper
  • Juice of 1/2 lemon
  • 2 Tbsp water
  • 1 Tbsp nutritional yeast
  • 1 medium shallot
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1/2 tsp raw honey
  • 1/2 tsp Himalayan salt


  • Bell pepper slices (I used green)
  • Onion slices (I used yellow)
  • Mushroom slices (I used white button mushrooms)
  • Fresh basil leaves


1) In a blender, blend coconut meat along with one of the tomatoes and transfer into a food processor.

2) Add all remaining ingredients to the food processor, and process until a soft dough-like consistency is formed.

3) Divide in half and form two 6-inch personal pan size pizza crusts.  Dehydrate on 115 degrees for 4 hours, flip over and dehydrate for another 6-8 hours.


1) Using a food processor, process all ingredients for an even, thick consistency.  If the sauce is still too runny, add a little more nutritional yeast and onion powder to absorb remaining moisture.

«Mozzarella» Cheese

1) Rinse and drain soaked cashews.

2) In a high-speed blender, blend all ingredients until smooth and creamy!  Add more water if needed to help blend.

1) Thinly slice your favorite topping ingredients (about 3/4 cup), and marinade in 1 Tbsp of tomato sauce, stirred in, for 30 min in the dehydrator at 115 degrees.
Assembly:  Spread tomato sauce on both pizza crusts.  Add a layer of cheese sauce, and finally add your toppings.  Dehydrate for another 20 min on 115 degrees (optional).  Enjoy!
