Herb Pizza Crusts

This delicious crust is a sort of a cross between the Pizza Crust featured in Cafe Gratitude's I Am Grateful and my usual favorite Veggie Herb Crust. A winner and definite new favorite! It served as the base for the Tuscan Pizza we served at a recent dinner we catered for.

Herb Pizza Crusts

Yields about 33 square crusts

4 cups soaked buckwheat (about 2 cups dried)
2 2/3 cups sunflower seeds, soaked
4 cups zucchini, peeled and roughly chopped
3/4 - 1 cup ground flax
1 1/4 cups water
1/4 cup + 1 tbs olive oil
1 tbs + 2 tsp Italian herbs
1 tbs + 1 tsp crushed garlic
1 tbs sea salt

Blend all ingredients in a food processor until smooth.

Spread batter about 1/4 " thick on 3 3/4 dehydrator trays covered with teflex sheets. Score into 9 squares per tray.

Dehydrate at 125 for 2-3 hours, then flip onto mesh and turn the temperature down to 110.

Dehydrate until dry.

Carmella's Note: Alternatively, you could also form the batter into small or large round crusts.

pizza crust

Camella,
Question? Soaked buckwheat is the 4 c after the buckwheat is soaked or before. I measured 4 c dried and holy cow I have ALOT of buckwheat!!! Like double the amount I KNOW you told me something about soaked before & after. So much information you were handing me. Roger was right I should have tapped all of our conversations!!
HELP!!
Linda

Oh no!!!!! That's happened to me earlier on too... before I learned how to determine whether the measurements were before or after soaking.

Sorry girl! I should have been clearer in my directions.

Well, in a pinch, you could just pop the extra buckwheat on a couple of trays and let them dehydrate. The result is called 'buckwheaties'. You can then add them to cereals, granola bars, chocolate... Yummy stuff!

Have fun Ddaying! (Mine was yesterday! )

Hugs

So, you mean we should soak 2 cups dried buckwheat? Another question, does the type of buckwheat make a difference? Thanks for the recipe!

Pat,

That's right. 2 cups dried buckwheat should yield about 4 cups soaked. I didn't know there was more than one kind. I think as long as it's not the unhulled variety it should work.

Unhappy pizza crust

Hi Ladies,
Thank you for your help!! I did set aside the remaining buckwheat. I noticed you had a recipe for buckwheat cookies, I thought I would take that challenge. I still have more buckwheat left over. I will take your tip on putting it in cereal. Didn't we put the leftover buckwheat in the D and let it dry out???
The recipe calls for 2 2/3 c sunflower does this expand also? Do I assume all things being soaked in a recipe are after the soaking? For example the sunflower should only be 1 1/3c? If that is the case I screwed up on the sunflower!!!
Now on to the next project

Jozie get a tape recorder or video cam there is soooo much to learn!! Of course you have been at this awhile. I am such a newbie

Hugs all over... we need hugs when things are going sort of out of sort..

Sorry that you're having a little trouble, Linda. It's all part of the learning curve! Been there meself!

I know that whole thing about whether amounts are before or after soaking can be very confusing at first but once you become familiar with it, it won't be an issue.

Here's a good rule of thumb...

When reading a recipe, pay close attention to how it's phrased. For instance, 1 cup sunflower seeds, soaked means to measure 1 cup dried sunflower seeds and then soak them whereas 1 cup soaked sunflower seeds refers to the wet/soaked amount. Can you connect with the difference?

Another example would be 1/2 cup flax seeds, ground vs 1/2 cup ground flax seeds. In the first case, the flax seeds are measured before being ground up whereas in the second case they are measured once they're ground.

So to answer your question, the 2 2/3 cups sunflower seeds in this recipe are measured dried then soaked so you did fine.

Hope this helps!

Oh and yes, dehydrate fully the left over buckwheat.

I can't express my thanks to you enough.. you always have good tips. OK Back to the work I love playing in the kitchie when things run smooth..

Do you order from Azure Standard? Main office is Delfur (sp)OR.
How do you get the original message in your reply?

So I should have only used 1 1/3 c of sunflower?

Linda girl,

Did you see my post just before Jozzie's? (Just checking! ) You needed to soak 2 2/3 cups sunseeds so you're good.

Whenever a batter is too wet just place it on the teflex sheet first.

I feel blessed that you are in my life too, girl!

Muah muah

Got it Jozie! It worked! I agree, I have not tried one recipe that I personally disliked! Carmi is amazing with her talent and the willingness to share!
