Raw Pizza!

I got tons of awesome birthday presents this year, one of which was container full of homemade raw buckwheat pizza crusts. My friend Judith, who's pretty much 100 percent raw, made them in her dehydrator.

She also included an avocado and a tomato in the gift bag so I had all the makin's of a raw pizza for dinner tonight. I used mashed, salted avocado in place of cheese and topped the crust with fresh tomatoes.

Though not pictured here, I also sprinkled the pizza with a little nooch for extra "cheesiness" and a B-12 boost.

Judith's crust was amazing. It had a bit of an Italian herb taste, like real pizza crust. But I don't know what she used in it. I'll have to get her recipe. For now though, I'm just going to enjoy eating homemade raw goodies that I didn't have to make on my own. I have enough crusts to save for the next raw food day (first Tuesday of each month), so expect more raw pizza later on.
