Raw Vegan Pizza Bites

Almost Raw Vegan Pizza Bites

This almost - raw vegan pizza is so delicious and satisfying- you do not want anything else! You can use cucumber or zucchini for the crust. Or you can make your own dehydrated crust, too. The "cheese" taste so delicious and its nice and "cheesy". Unfortunately, the "cheese" is not 100% raw because of the nutritional yeast. Therefore, making this pizza almost raw. BUT besides the yeast, the rest of the ingredients are raw. The "cheese" contains no dairy! Its way better than dairy "cheese". This is REAL "cheese". The "cheese recipe was used  in my raw vegan veggie burger post. You can add whatever you'd like as the toppings (as long as its raw or vegan, of course).

Here's the recipe:
INGREDIENTS:
CRUST:
2-4 organic & non-GMO cucumbers or zucchini, peeled and sliced

"CHEESE": (spreadable "cheese")
1 cup raw cashews, soaked for 1-12 hours
1/2 or whole red bell pepper (the more the better!)
3-4 large garlic cloves 
1 tsp sea or pink salt
1/2 cup Bragg's apple cider vinegar
1/2 cup nutritional yeast
1/4 cup filtered water

CRUMBLY "CHEESE" (Hemp Cashew Cheese):
1 cup cashews, soaked 
1 cup organic, non-GMO hemp seeds

TOMATO SAUCE:
1 cup fresh tomatoes (about 3 heirlooms)
2 cups sun dried tomatoes
2-4 pitted dates, to add a bit sweetness
Pinch of salt
4-6 leaves Spinach
1 tbsp coconut oil
Basil leaves
Italian spices like: thyme, parsley, cloves; 1 tsp each)
2-4 garlic cloves

DIRECTIONS:
For the CRUST:
* Peel the cucumber or zucchini. Using a mandaline slicer, slice a thin or thick (how ever width you like it). Or using a knife, cut thin or thick slices. You could lay the cucumber or zucchini down on the cutting board or stand up. Set aside on your plate.

For the "CHEESE":
* Blend all ingredients in blender until creamy. Pour cheese in a bowl and chill for at least 30 minutes or longer. The "cheese" is best when chilled. This recipe was used in the Raw Vegan Veggie Burger and Cheddar Cheese.

For the HEMP CASHEW CHEESE:
Place all ingredients in your blender and blend (pulse, low) until fine crumbs. Place in a bowl and set aside. You'll be surprised at how this tastes like cheese!

For the TOMATO SAUCE:
* Blend all ingredients in the blender until smooth, thick, and saucy. Pour into a bowl. You can chill in the refrigerator until ready to be used.

TOPPINGS & GARNISHES- (I used):
Sliced black olives
Sliced avocados
Of course, you can add whatever. Here are some options:
Crumbled tofu
Spinach
Mushroom
Red onions
Red bell pepper
Italian spices, etc!

To ASSEMBLY:
* Take your sliced crust, and add the "cheese", tomato sauce, and garnish with toppings. Optional - place your pizza bites on a dehydrator tray and dehydrate at 105 for 15-30 minutes, or until no more water. Dehydrate to your dry liking. Enjoy your pizza bites!:)
