Many raw pizza recipes, while delicious, are very heavy on the nuts. This recipe by Marquis Matson of Real Raw Kitchen is devoid of any nuts whatsoever! The crust is made from soaked chia, sweet potato, leafy greens and fresh herbs and has a nice chewy texture without being heavy. A chunky marinara is spread over the crust and topped with fresh spinach and marinated mushrooms and onions that have a nearly caramelized texture from the dehydrator. Marquis calls this one a "beast of a pizza", but it's worth the effort once in a while to come up with something as special as this. Indulge!
Marquis Matson of Real Raw Kitchen gives us a little something to dream about....ooey gooey sweet and chewy raw vegan cinnamon rolls served warm right out of the dehydrator, with a drizzle of melted stone ground coconut butter and chopped pecans to top. The best thing about this recipe, aside from its decadent deliciousness, is the fact that it doesn't rely too heavily on nuts. Instead Marquis uses soaked dried figs to create a nice cinnamon-roll texture. Gluten free and all raw!
