Alkaline Diet Recipe #25: Friday Night Pizza
Pizza saves and freezes well as long as you wrap it and seal it well. YUM! Serves 4 people.
A) Tomato Sauce: Ingredients
2 tablespoons Olive oil
2 onions, finely sliced
2 large carrots, finely chopped
2 sticks of celery, finely sliced
3 large cloves of garlic, finely chopped or crushed
3 20oz packs of fresh plum or Roma tomatoes, chopped into quarters. Regular large tomatoes will do, however, I do find their flavor is not strong enough unless they are summer crop tomatoes
3 large sprigs fresh oregano or 4 teaspoons dried oregano
2 teaspoons pHlavor or Celtic salt
4 -8 large basil leaves, washed and left whole
How to Make
In a large casserole or cast iron pan, sauté the onions and garlic in the coconut oil until soft. Add the carrot and celery and sauté for a further 3 minutes. Add the tomatoes and stir. Add the oregano, fresh basil and stir again. Place the lid and leave on a very low heat so that the sauce is only just simmering. Leave to cook like this for two hours. The longer you leave it to cook, the richer it will taste. You can use this sauce after just 30 minutes, but the taste will not be as intense or delicious.
B) Pizza Crust: Ingredients
3 cups Sprouted Spelt flour
1 cup sprouted and ground Chia seeds
1 cup Sprouted and ground flax seeds
1 cup hemp seed hearts
1/2 cup sesame seeds
1 tbs garlic powder or 1 clove fresh garlic crushed
1 tbs onion powder
2 tbs dried thyme
2 tbs oregano
2 tbs dried basil
1 tsp black ground pepper
1 tsp salt
Mix all this together well then add
1 cup Olive oil
How to Make
Mix all dry ingredients together well
Add wet ingredients being careful to mix well.
Rub in to form breadcrumbs. It is ok if it starts to form a bit of a dough.
Add 1/4 cup alkaline water to make a firm dough, keep adding water and mixing until you get a consistency of a firm but supple dough. If you add too much water you can always add a little more flour. Remember, you are looking for a pizza dough like consistency but this will never be totally supple as you are dealing with much more wholesome ingredients and no yeast.
Break into quarters and roll on a floured surface to create a pizza crust
Place the pizza crust into baking trays covered with parchment paper
Add tomato sauce (listed below) of your choice. I love to add my spaghetti sauce recipe s posted below
Add sliced peppers, ,onions, olives, garlic and bake for 15-20 minutes at 375F (Check after 15 mins)
***You can, if you like, prepare the pizza crust and simply drizzle olive oil. Place cloves of garlic and slices of onions over the pizza crust and cook in the oven for 15 minutes.
***This recipe falls into 2 categories. It is a great Transitional recipe for those looking to move away from an acidic diet and it can also be eaten in the 20% portion of your alkaline meal as a low acid food. We have it with an assortment of wonderful raw salads and raw veggies.
It is an Outstanding Day!
