Raw Pizza Night!

I always love experimenting with ingredients. Lately, I have been on a buckwheat binge. Buckwheat is gluten free and a great alternative to wheat. Did you know that buckwheat is not a grain? It is actually a seed that is related to rhubarb.



I have an affinity with buckwheat. When I was a little girl, my dad, ever the nutrition conscious chef, used to make us buckwheat pancakes for Sunday morning breakfast. I loved it when my dad cooked. Everything seemed more special, probably because he didn’t do it that often. Mom made beautiful, delicious dinners every night but turn Dad lose in the kitchen and somehow magic was born.

Buckwheat has amazing health benefits. First of all, it’s a great source of Manganese. Why is that important? Manganese helps your body in many ways. It helps keep your bones healthy, and maintain healthy blood sugar levels. It supports thyroid function and protects your cells from free radical damage. If that isn’t enough, it also helps maintain healthy nerves.

Buckwheat is also great for your cardio vascular system. What more can you ask for?

Today’s raw pizza recipe takes advantage of that wonderful seed in it’s crust. I have had many requests for pizza so I finally dug in and made one for you. I must admit, this recipe is a complete winner. The recipe looks long but it you make the crust and mushrooms ahead and it is easy to throw together.

    Love your stuff… it all looks soo amazing!! One tiff though, as a fully raw foodist, I noticed maple syrup and oats in your recipes. These items are not raw.. maple is boiled to get the texture and oats are steamed and rolled groats. Keep up the great work but make it fully raw.

      Hi, Mark, Yes, we know that maple syrup is not raw. We discuss this on the FAQ page. You can get raw oats and that is discussed on the blog, also. Flaked oats are used in the recipes, not rolled oats. We do not consider ourselves to be a fully raw blog. If you are a fully raw foodist, I am sure you are familiar with what is and what is not raw and can navigate properly. Cheers!
