Typically, raw vegan pizza crusts take hours to dehydrate. Imagine yourself sitting there, drooling, and waiting! This raw vegan pizza no dehydrator needed recipe gives you the same magic, but a lot faster. It is quick, oil free, and very satisfying.
Raw Vegan Pizza No Dehydrator Needed Crust: Portobello Mushrooms
Portobellos are extremely protein rich. They have a lot of selenium, which helps in DNA repair in the body and helps the body produce antioxidants. They also contain a lot of copper, phosphorus, and potassium, iron, magnesium, manganese, calcium and zinc. And even B6 and B1! Tomer, my boyfriend (when this post was created; now partner) is a certified pizza addict. So I had to find a way to deliver his wishes, quickly.
Raw Vegan Pizza No Dehydrator Needed Option #1
- 1 teaspoon tamari
- 1 Portobello mushroom
- 1/2 bell pepper
- 2 inch piece of leek sliced very thin and caramelized (in date paste and lemon juice, see below)
- 2 tablespoons mixture of spicy seeds
- 1 cup pumpkin seeds
- 2 cups sunflower seeds
- 1/4 cup Tamari
- 3 tablespoons date paste
- A pinch of cayenne pepper
Wash the mushrooms using a wet paper towel (don't put them under running water because they will become soggy - they soak liquids very quickly)
Next, wet your fingers in a mixture of tamari, and rub the mushrooms with it.
Soak very thinly chopped leeks in 1 teaspoon date paste and juice of 1/2 a lemon for about 30 minutes (the longer the better)
Thinly chop bell peppers.
Mix peppers, leeks, and spicy seeds.
Stuff mushrooms with the above ingredients.
soak pumpkin and sunflower seeds in water overnight.
Drain the water in the morning, and mix seeds with tamari, date paste, and cayenne.
The longer they are soaked in the tamari, date paste, and cayenne, the better.
You can also dehydrate this mixture, but it is entirely optional.
Raw Vegan Pizza No Dehydrator Needed Option #2
Another option is to stuff the portobello mushroom crust with some raw cheese, raw tomato sauce, and decorate with your favorite toppings. I like chopped olives, chiffonaded basil, and cut up bell pepper.
For the raw cheese recipe, see here.
For the tomato sauce, see here.
For a cooked vegan, gluten free, fat free pizza recipe, make my eggplant pizza. It’s incredible.
