12-10-2006, 09:21 PM
Okay I want to make the pizza bread right now, however theres one thing Im short and thats the flax seeds. I have 1 cup whole flax seeds left, So I know when I grind them Up I get a lil more, Would just 1 cup ground be enuff? Or will it ruin it becuz the recipe calls for 2 cups? I have chia seeds? Can I do 1 cup flax ground 1 cup chia? I know I could, but would it turn out good?
Also the recipe calls for 1 tablespoon fresh onion? Im guessing just cut up some onion and chop until u get 1 tablespoon?
I will be waiting around here...
Thanks so much in advance...
Also any tips?
* Waits patiently*

I think you could get away with it...however, why not just halve the entire recipe?
As for the onion, yeah that's pretty much what I'd do...just cut a thin slice and then chop...you really don't have to have EXACTLY...if you have a little more or a little less it won't hurt.

K sounds great. Thanks Rawkin. Yeah I should have thought about it, but I already had the almonds and tomatoes soaking, and I dont want to waste them or have to store them, I will just try it with the ground chia, next time I will cut in half if I find myself in this situation.
Now when this is done, is it usually soft and firm, or is it hard and crunchy? What em I aiming for here? Im guessing soft and firm since it can be used as a wrap...
One more question... ahh. Okay the recipe says to ground the almonds to a powder, but they have been soaked, so Im guessing a gooey powder?
One thing I have decided to do, is when I try recipes for the first time, and Im not sure I will enjoy, I buy all the ingredients that I dont have on hand from the local store close by -the store that isnt organic. Saves the hassle or feelings of waste. If I like it, and I make it again in the future --all organic.
Wowo Im excited first bread recipe I have tried?

Wellll...you could simply toss the excess soaked tomatoes and almonds into the dehydrator, dry them out and store for later usage. Or, you can do the chia seed thing...I've never tried chia seeds...are they pretty neutral in flavor?
As for the texture of the bread...that depends on how long you leave it in the dehydrator. You leave it in the recommended time and check it for firmness and lack of "wetspots" (as well as "flipability"). If you're all good, then peel off the teflex and dry the other side until it's to your desired texture. If you want it to be a wrap, then dry it until it's firm, yet pliable.
I haven't made the pizza bread in a couple of years, but I do recall liking it quite well.

Just saw that you soaked the almonds...do you have any dry almonds left that you can grind dry? If so, do that and again, put those soaked babies on the mesh tray and dry them! Did the recipe say to soak them? I can't remember and my book is in the kitchen and I'm not. But if all you have is soaked almonds to use, then drain them really well, maybe even blot them with a paper towel to get the excess water off of them and then grind them in the food processor until as fine as you can get 'em without them turning into mush. But it really doesn't matter because I "think" (going on memory here) that you're gonna end up processing the entire mixture before it's ready to be spread, right?

Yeah the chia seeds dont really taste like anything at all. Very neutral tasting. Yeah the recipe says Soaked Almonds 1 cup ground fine.??? Hmmm I have dry ones to... And yes u process everything an extra time.

Okay then yeah, just drain 'em and grind them in the processor until as fine as you can get them...again before they end up almond "butter". Thanks for the info on the chia seeds, I'll have to try them out some day.

Thanks again Rawkin.
Yeah, times when Im out of Flax seeds that I grind up to thicken my smoothie and my fiber intake, I have added ground up chia. Tastes so nuetral..... 2 me at least.
