Pizza Pie ~ a Raw and Vegan Recipe


serves 4 ~ $1.76 per serving




crust
  • 3/4 cup walnuts ($1.50)
  • 3/4 cup dates ($1.00)
cheeze
  • 1/2 cup cashews ($1.00)
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 2 dates, pitted ($.10)
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
sauce and toppings
  • 3/4 cup strawberries ($1.50)
  • 4 tablespoons date paste ($.20)
  • 2 bananas, grated ($.30)
  • 2 kiwi, sliced and quartered ($.95)


This is such a fun recipe! To make the crust, in a food processor fitted with an "S" blade, process the walnuts and dates until they're ground up fairly well and start clumping together. Press into a dinner plate or pie plate (or a small pizza pan!).

In a bullet type blender, puree the cashews, water, dates, and salt until creamy, which takes a few minutes. Once blended, pop in the freezer to chill for a few minutes.

Again using a bullet type blender, puree the strawberries and date paste until very smooth.

Using a food processor fitted with a grating blade, grate the bananas (less ripe bananas work the best).

To assemble, spoon a layer of cashew cream on the crust, spreading almost to the edge of the crust. Spoon a layer of strawberry puree on top of the cashew cream. Sprinkle the grated bananas over the strawberry puree (the bananas will be a bit gooey, so it takes a bit of finessing). Top with the cut kiwi. Let chill in the refrigerator for at least an hour before cutting into pizza shaped wedges and serving.
