View Full Version : Pizza Bread question
04-12-2010, 02:09 PM
I'm new to raw foods diet, but have been vegan for over twenty years. Now that I am getting older (did I just say that?), I want to work harder at my health and so far I'm really liking the raw food way of life. I have been reading all your posts to educate myself. Got all the equipment, Alissa's book, dehydrator, etc. and have been trying as many recipes as I can.
I am in the process of making Alissa's Pizza Bread, but the dough seems pretty stiff. What consistency should it be? I'm having trouble spreading it out on the dehydrator tray. I've added a little more water (recipe calls for 1/2 c. water) but it still seems thick. Thanks for your help!

Can't necessarily help you with the pizza bread question, since you already mentioned adding some more water and it not working that great. But, congratulations for getting into raw now! Lots of really good support here and no attitude, good people. You have a wonderful journey ahead and many taste adventures, seriously! It's not all "rabbit food"(no offense to our rabbit friends here - LOL!) - many yummy things all the way from very simple on up to very creative raw dessert preparations, etc. Great that you got the book and equipment too. Now's the time as you're finding out to try as many new things as possible - this way you'll find out what's a keeper for you and what's a pass. Everyone's bound to find a few good things as staple dishes and go from there. Many people as they get older get stuck in their attitudes towards and family customs around food and think that it's too difficult to change their diets at this stage so they don't do it, even though it would benefit them to do so.

Thank you so much for the encouragement! Some of my friends think that I'm so weird being vegetarian...I haven't told them I'm now transitioning to a raw food diet...that will really freak them! LOL!
But seriously, I have been watching my friends and acquaintances go through many illness and health issues, while I have been so healthy and stayed well (except for migraines, but this raw food seems to be making a big difference with those!).
I finally got the pizza bread spread out. Some areas are thick and other thin but it will take great either way!

Good for you on taking charge of your health. Hopefully your friends will notice how great you feel, and improve their diets as well.
I've never done Alissa's pizza bread, but it sounds good. Let us know how it came out!
I love Alissa's Onion Dip ... use it as dip, in rollups, a bit on raw chili. If you haven't tried it yet and like dip - I highly recommend it. Simple to make too!

I think your friends and SAD eaters in general are so weird.
I haven't told them I'm now transitioning to a raw food diet...that will really freak them!
Enjoying the sickness/slow death that springs from eating the crap your friends eat should really freak them even more.http://smileyjungle.com/smilies/lostit0.gif (http://smileyjungle.com)

Oh, you're too funny! Actually they are very nice people, but totally closed minded when it comes to changing their eating habits. Hard for me to understand, but too each his own. I love this way of eating and will continue on for as long as I am able to cook (uncook) for myself. I know it has made a big difference in my health.

The pizza bread is a thick dough, and it is hard to spread. Be careful when dehydrating it that you don't over-dry it. Good luck. It's a great recipe!

When I make breads/crusts that are too thick, I roll it in a ball and place it on a teflex sheet, with another on top, then roll it with a rolling pin and peel off the top sheet.
It especially helps if there's a little oil in the dough and it won't stick to the teflex sheets.
