Travelnista's Raw PizzaSubmitted by: TRAVELNISTA
1/2 cup of raw sunflower seeds
2 large raw sweet potatoes
2 large zucchini
2 large carrots
8 oz. raw mushrooms
1 California avocado
2 large tomatoes
sea salt to taste - optional
garlic powder - optional
cayenne to taste - optional
Soak your sunflower (or pumpkin or what ever raw nuts/seeds you are using in water for a min. of a couple of hours) Then drain.
In a Food Processor: One at a time shred the following veggies and place in a HUGE bowl because this makes a lot and you need to stir it):
2 large peeled sweet potatoes
2 large zucchini ends cut off but not peeled
2 large carrots not peeled
8 oz. of raw mushrooms
Next add in your sea salt and cayenne pepper to taste.
In your Food Processor blend the avocado real well and then add the tomatoes tomatoes. You want the tomatoes to juice down but some chunks left in are good
Add into the mixture along with the soaked sunflower seeds and mix well.
Serve on a raw flax cracker if you have dehydrated them or bought them. Or serve on a bed of salad greens or just on the plate. Or roll up into nori sheets as eat as sushi.
The calories for the flax crackers, salad greens, or nori is not included into calorie count. You will have to add what ever method you eat it.
Makes a min. of 8 one cup servings.
Store leftovers in a air tight container and place in refrigerator.
In the summer you can top with Raw corn kernels fresh off the cobb. It adds a different texture and it is so sweet.
I have also substituted raw butternut squash in place of the sweet potatoes.
I have also substituted thinned out tahini with lemon juice in place of the avocado.
Play around with. I never make it the same way twice.
Number of Servings: 8

I actually tried the Raw Pizza it just sounded so crazy I figured it had to be good otherwise I did not think you would go out on a limb and post it. I really am trying to eat more vegetables and also eat healthier.
I could not imagine eating raw sweet potato but it was quite good. It was crunchy - 4/17/10
