This is epic. This is pizza. I wanted to create a raw pizza recipe that was NOT nut-based. The base for this recipe is actually zucchini noodles and other veggies! Another bonus about this pizza crust is that you can use your leftover nut pulp in it (from when you make nut milk)! I used walnut pulp for this recipe. Now, you have even more reasons to make your own fresh nut milk. It's approximately 1,723 times better than store-bought, and you have an excuse to make the best pizza ever. C'mon. No down sides.

  • Handful fresh basil leaves

Preparation

  1. To make the crust: slice the zucchinis into noodles with a spiral slicer, mandolin or a cheese grater. Set aside in a large bowl. Blend the rest of the ingredients until smooth, adjusting according to taste. Mix this into the noodles. You should end up with a huge bowl of really saucy noodles. Like I said, it's hard not eating all of this by itself. Spread this evenly - keepin' it thick - into a big circle on a dehydrator tray and dehydrate at 115 °F for 6 hours or so, until pliable. Flip over and do the same again. Note: you can use your oven at it's lowest temperature if you don't have a dehydrator. Keep checking on your crust as it is drying though, because everyone's will turn out different.
  2. To make the sauce: put all the ingredients a food processor or blender and blend until smooth. Spread on your crust.
  3. To prepare the toppings: slice all the veggies thinly, then coat in the apple cider vinegar and place in a warm spot, dehydrator or oven for around 40 minutes until they soften. Decorate your pizza with the toppings, slice, then ENJOY THE HECK OUT OF IT.
 

Notes

Optional: add some raw vegan cheese! I also threw on some avocado, cilantro and hemp seeds.
