¼ cup water

2 tablespoons nutritional yeast

1 tablespoon lemon juice

¼ teaspoon sea salt

Mushrooms

3/4 cup chopped button mushrooms

1/3 cup diced white onion

1 clove garlic grated

2 tablespoons of tamari

1 tablespoon olive oil

Toppings

1 ½ cups chopped spinach

1 small red bell pepper chopped into cubes or slices

¼ cup dried olives chopped

These are all the ingredients you need to make your raw vegan pizza. Feel free to add other ingredients or replace with your preferred raw vegan ingredients.

Follow the step by step instructions to make your very own raw vegan pizza.

Base

Put the kamut flour into a large mixing bowl, you can sift the flour if you wish. However, this is not necessary as this flour is already quite fine.

Add your ½ cup of room temperature water, you might need more. Just judge it by eye, then add the ground flaxseed and sea salt. Bring all the ingredients together to form dough, knead the dough until it becomes smooth.

Pour some olive oil on to dehydrator tray with non stick paper lining the tray. Place your dough on to the tray and roll it out flat like a pizza base. Pinch the edges of the pizza base to form the crust. Set your dehydrator to 110 degrees Fahrenheit or 38 degrees. Leave the base to dry for 2 hours in the dehydrator. If you do not have a dehydrator, you can use your fan oven, put it on a low heat such as 80 degrees and leave the door open.

Sauce

While your base is in the dehydrator or in the oven you can make your pizza sauce. Put all the ingredients for the pizza sauce into a high powered blender, and process until smooth. Add the soak water from the sun-dried gradually until it reaches the texture of pizza sauce.

Cheese

For the cheese, put all the ingredients for the cheese in the blender and process until it becomes smooth. It should be a similar texture to the pizza sauce.

Mushrooms

For the mushrooms, put all the ingredients in a small container and shake. Let the mushrooms marinate for at least half an hour.

Putting your pizza together

Take your pizza base out of the dehydrator and lay flat. First put the pizza sauce on the base by spreading it with the back of a spoon. Make sure it is evenly spread and not too thin.

Next put the cheese on with the back of a spoon, spreading evenly as well.

Now put the spinach and red pepper, as well as the olives and mushrooms. You can now put the pizza on a mesh dehydrator, set to 110 degrees Fahrenheit. Leave it in the dehydrator for 3 hours; again you can also use a fan oven with the door open.

Fresh Raw Food

3 Benefits of Eating More Raw Food

Here are just a few benefits of eating more raw food. You really do not need trash all the cooked food produce in your pantry and start eating salads and fruit every day. However, there are some major benefits to eating more raw fruits and vegetables.

More Nutrients

When you eat more raw fruits and vegetables, your body assimilates more of the nutrients from the food. The essential phytonutrients found in some fruits and vegetables are ultimately destroyed when cooked. Therefore, consuming food in its raw state can maintain more of the essential nutrients than when you cook them. So, there is no harm in eating a salad with your pie or fries. Having a side of fruits with your dessert, or even replacing your cake and custard with a healthier raw dessert, such as a blended smoothie or frozen fruit sorbet/ice cream.

Easier to Digest

Raw fruits and vegetables are easier to digest than cooked foods. However, in the case of raw leafy greens, it is actually easier to digest cooked greens than it is to digest raw greens. Take a look at this article that outlines how the body digests certain foods, namely raw foods. >Things to Remember About Raw Food and Digestion Eat plenty of fresh fruits to get your digestive juices flowing. Such as, mangoes, oranges, bananas, apples, plums, peaches and soursop.

Better Skin

Who would turn down better skin? No, I am not saying that eating more raw foods will automatically make your skin silky smooth, but it should make a difference. Papayas for example, are well known for being excellent for the skin. Papaya is an excellent source of vitamin A and Papain. Which help to eradicate dead skin cells and facilitate skin cell renewal.
