Amy Anstey’s Rawr Pizza Recipe
- 4 Cups Flax Seed
- 1 Red Bell Pepper
- 1 Tbsp Oregano
- 1 Cup water
- You could also add any spices you feel like & salt to taste, I kept mine salt free & it still tasted really good
- 100 g Sundried Tomatoes (soaked)
- 1 Tsp Paprika
- 1/2 Red Pepper
- Chilli flakes (as desired)
- 1 Clove Garlic
- Baby Marrow
- Yellow Pepper
- Sunflower Seeds
- Anything else your heart desires
For the Crust
- Pre-heat your oven to 190˚ C
- Add your red pepper to the blender/food processor with a cup of water, blend it up. Add your flax seeds & oregano to the mixture and blend it again. You want to end up with a mixture that’s quite doughy but not too thick. If you feel the mixture needs more water then go ahead and add small amounts at a time.
- Spread the mixture on a wax sheet and bake it in your oven for about 20 minutes.
- For the tomato base, add all your ingredients to the blender and blend them up – try to keep the mixture nice and chunky.
- Your last step! Take your crusts out of the oven, spread some tomato base on them and add your toppings!
TIP: If you prefer this recipe raw, then you can also dehydrate the crusts for about 8 hours at 47˚C.
Raw Ginger Gems

- 1/3 cup almonds
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 tablespoon finely grated ginger
- 1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
- 2 tablespoon maple syrup
- 2 tablespoons / 1 piece cacao butter
- 2 tablespoon beetroot juice (store-bought or juiced at home)

- Grind the oats and almonds in a high speed blender or food processor until it forms a coarse powder
- Add the vanilla extract, grated ginger, maple syrup and ground nutmeg and mix until it forms a dough
- Roll the dough out on a surface and use a cookie cutter to press out shapes (it helps to wet the surface with a bit of water so the dough doesn’t stick to it)
- Use a spatula to scoop up your cookies and transfer your cookies to wax paper
- Pop into the freezer
- Make the pink chocolate dip: melt the cacao butter, add the beetroot juice and maple syrup, and mix until evenly combined.
- Take your cookies out of the freezer and dip it halfway into the mixture
- Put the dipped cookies back in the freezer for 5 minutes to set, and then dip the cookies again.
- Repeat until all the mixture is done.
- Keep in freezer until served..
- Enjoy with love!
TIP: If you don’t have cacao butter, you can use coconut oil as well. It just doesn’t set as great.
