Organically grown raw and living foods provide us with the vital and essential nutrients that we need to stay healthy. They are also rich in phytonutrients, enzymes, and antioxidants. When you cook your food, you lose 50 percent of the protein. It becomes coagulated and you lose 78 percent of the vitamins and minerals. If you go raw, you can eat half as much and still get the same amount of nutrients!
Dehydrating the pizza crust at 115 degrees Fahrenheit (46 degrees Celsius) will help keep all nutrients intact.

Makes (2) 18” x 1/4” Chocolate-Pecan Flour Crusts:
- 2 C. pecans
- 1 1/4 C. coconut flour
- 3/4 C. cacao powder
- 1/2 C. coconut oil
- pumpkin spice to taste
- 1 tsp. Himalayan salt
- 2 droppers full Clear Stevia of choice
Blend above ingredients in food processor then add: 2 1/2 C. peeled/pureed zucchini and 3/4 C. water. Once processed into a dough, transfer to mixing bowl and add 3/4 C. ground flax & 1/4 C. chia powder. Let sit 10-15 minutes, then spread on teflex dehydrator sheets. Dehydrate 10 + hours on 115 F, flipping half-way through. The crust should be dried but not crispy like crackers!!! (If using a conventional oven, please heat to the lowest temperature setting, use a pizza tray lined with parchment paper and place 1/2 the mixture on it, set pizza tray in the oven, leave door slightly open, if you have an oven fan then please use it, check after 5 hours and add time if necessary. You want the crust to be dried but not like a cracker, you still want some moisture. Conventional oven dehydrate more quickly than dehydrators.)
