Juicer pulp pizza crust

IMG_0810

I have been craving pizza this past week so I have been eating this for 3 days straight. About half of the ingredients are from the pulp of juicing carrots and other veggies. So when you are done you have a nice cup of savory juice to go with it. I use Daiya non dairy mozerella cheese on this one but I am not vegan (just veganish) so I may try some goat cheese on this also very soon.

juicer pulp pizza crust

Put in juicer:

10 medium carrots

1/2 medium onion

1/2 red bell pepper

1/2 bulb garlic(about 4 cloves)

This makes about 1 cup of pulp, make sure to take out the big chunks so the crust isn’t too chunky.

Mix the pulp with dry ingredients:

1/2 cup brown rice flour

1 tablespoon coconut flour

1 tablespoon of ground flaxseeds

1 tablespoon of tapioca flour

1/2 cup coconut milk

1/4 cup warm water

2 tablespoons vinegar

1 tablespoon maple syrup

3 tablespoons olive oil

1 teaspoon baking powder

1 tablespoon dry italian herbs

sea salt to taste

Mix wet and dry ingredients together and form crust onto parchment paper on a cookie sheet. Bake on 350 until crusts are firm (about 45 minutes) You could also dehydrate if you wanted to make it more “raw” but that would take many hours and I don’t have that kind of patience!

What I ate Wednesday

For breakfast today I didn’t eat food but just had some fresh juice from my juicer. Sometimes I just feel better if I skip breakfast and do an early lunch. It gives my body a sort of mini detox considering it has been without food since dinner yesterday. Just a large cup( or 3) of juice and I’m good till lunch. I even have a better workout on an empty stomach.  The secret to making juice more affordable is to dilute it with water and add a little bit of stevia sweetener to extend it out. Then you can drink several cups throughout the day instead of just 1 concentrated cup in the morning. This is my juice today:

Lime sunshine

5 carrots

1 gala apple

1 lime

1/2 orange

2-3 ” piece of fresh ginger

handful of cilantro

2 stalks of celery

1/2 cucumber

Enjoy!  It tastes even better in a fancy cup 🙂
