Raw Almond Flax Pizza Crust

No food blog is complete without a pizza recipe, right? Well, here's one everyone can enjoy... unless you're allergic to nuts (in which case, check out the recipe link at the bottom).

The Rawtarian and RawGuru apparently agree that this is a pizza crust worth trying, since the excessively wordy recipe appears verbatim on both websites. Allow me to guide you through the gab:

In a food processor, combine 2c almond meal, 1c ground flax, 1-1/2T olive oil, 1T each of basil, thyme, and rosemary, 3/4tsp salt, and 1/2c water*. Flatten on a dehydrator sheet and set the blowers to 115 degrees. Seven hours (or so) later, your pizza crust is ready for you to rain down lavish affection in the form of sauce, veggies, and or course, nut cheese.

A glorious balance of heartiness and delicacy, this 1/4" crust would also make great crackers or sandwich bread.

If you prefer a thinner, more flavourful crust, try this tomato-flax crust by Big Raw Blog. Unfortunately I have no picture right now, but this is one of our favourites.

*Why add a full cup of water to something you're going to dehydrate? I'll never understand it...
