This week we are going to make some simple crusts that you can use to create your own pizza or you can also use them to make other creations of your choice. We typically make a bunch of these and dehydrate them so they keep for a few weeks then pull them out as we need them. There are many variations you can make by adding your choice of spices, but we will concentrate on the basic recipe below.
Ingredients are very basic:
2 cups – Sprouted Ground Raw Buckwheat Groats
2 cups – Ground Flax Seeds
2 cups – Filtered Water
Pinch of Himalayan Pink Salt
Grind the buckwheat groats and flax in a coffee grinder or Vitamix. Mix in the water and add a pinch of salt. Spread onto a dehydrator sheet. We like ours about ¼ inch thick and about 8 inches in diameter, but you can make them any shape and thickness you like. Let dehydrate for about 24 hours at 115 deg F. or until they are a bit crunchy. The thicker they are the longer it will take to dehydrate.
Remove from dehydrator add your favourite toppings and voila you have a quick and easy pizza. We like ours with cashew cheese, marinara sauce, sun-dried tomatoes, pineapple, mushrooms, zucchini and some sprouts. You can add the toppings of your choice and put the pizza back in the dehydrator to warm it up.
