Raw Vegan Pizza: Pesto & Caramelised Onion

If you’re new to the concept of raw food, you might wonder how on earth you’d make a raw pizza without cooking.

I always get inquisitive looks when I talk about raw pizza to raw food newbies. I can certainly understand it's confusing; Someone once asked me once if it’s uncooked frozen pizza 🤪.

Raw Pizza Base Recipe

You’ll be pleased to know it’s definitely not that.  We use a dehydrator (my recommendations for equipment are here) to create a delightful raw pizza base crust.

This can be made ahead of time and kept in the fridge for a few days, although it’s soooo tasty straight out of the dehydrator.

I remember the first time I made this; it didn’t even make it out of the dehydrator before it was fully done.  I kept on eating little bits util there was just a small square left.  So I eat that and started a new one!

The base can also be frozen.  You might like to cut it into individual portions and freeze that way, so you can defrost bits as you need them.

Some people are not a fan of  Buckwheat so you could use maybe cauliflower or carrot, or a mixture.  If you’re doing that I would recommend adding a little ground almond too.

We have another raw pizza base, plus a bunch of other raw breads, crackers and wraps in our online course: Breads, Crackers & Wraps.

Raw Vegan Pizza Cheese

I’ve given you a recipe for a really simple raw pizza cheese here.  This pizza would be infinitely more incredible with a fermented nut cheese.

If you want to go all in on how to make raw nut cheeses, we have a course on that here: Tree Nut Cheeses.
