Optimum Pizza Delivers Great Taste


Just about everyone loves pizza!  But all that fat from the cheese and empty calories from the crust can be a killer…literally.  Our wizards in the Optimum Health Institute (OHI) kitchens have cooked up – or rather dehydrated – a delicious and healthy alternative that coaxes tons of satisfying flavor from seeds, grains and vegetables.
It takes a little time to create because of the dehydrating required, so plan ahead; then prepare to be delighted with this delicious recipe that’s been a guest favorite for years.
This recipe yields 8 servings, or 2 pizzas.

Gomashio “Cheese” Topping

2 cups dehydrated sesame seeds (or dried sesame pulp)

1 Tbs. garlic powder 1 Tbs. celery flakes

Blend ingredients together and set aside for sprinkling on top of the pizza.


1/2 cup flax seeds

4 cups rye berries

2 cups water

Grind dry flax. Blend berries and water. Add flax to batter, stir until smooth. Spoon half the mixture at a time onto dehydrator sheets to make two crusts and let dry at 105 degrees for 24 hours.

Flip pizza crusts and let dry for another 6-8 hours.

Add sauce and toppings immediately before serving.

1/2 carrot
