SUSTAINABLE HEALING FOODS: HAND-PRESS PIZZA CRUST

Pizza is just a big open-faced sandwich and this gluten-free hand-press pizza crust is so easy a 5 year old can make it. There is zero kneading or spinning required. The most complicated part about making this pizza crust is activating the yeast. Then you literally mix everything in a bowl, cover it in plastic wrap in a warm place for the dough to rise then you pat it into whatever shape you want to whatever thickness you prefer. To pat the dough you dip your fingers in whole food living water to make the dough more pliable then parbake and dress it up to your liking. The recipe makes three 8-10″ rounds and we’ve played around with our toppings a bit and we usually drizzle them with our Pura Vida Habanero Agave Syrup. For this pizza dough you can add activated charcoal like we did in these photos or spirulina powder to really boost your pizza’s healing power.
