Sunflower Seed and Beet Pizza

Dish Type: Pizza


  • Ingredients for the crust:
  • 2 cups Ground Sunflower Seeds
  • 1 cup Grated Beet
  • 1/4 cup Coconut Oil, Hemp Oil, or EFA Blend (I used a combination of coconut and hemp)
  • 1/2 tsp Parsley
  • Sea Salt, to taste
  • Ingredients for the topping:
  • 1 Tomato, sliced
  • 1/2 Spanish Onion, diced
  • 1 cup chopped Celery
  • 1/2 cup chopped Fresh Basil
  • 1/2 cup grated Carrot
  • 1/2 cup Green Onions


For the sauce, use the spicy sun-dried tomato marinara from the zucchini pasta recipe.

Preheat the oven to 300 degrees Fahrenheit.

In a food processor, process the crust ingredients until the mixture starts to ball up.  Lightly oil a baking tray with coconut oil.  Spread the mixture on tray about 1/4 inch thick.  Spread sauce over crust and add toppings.  Bake for 45 minutes, or until desired crispness is reached.
