Going Nuts For Pizza

Nuts, Raisin & Fig Crust Chicken Pizza

I've been experimenting with nuts lately, and I decided to make my self a pizza. I wanted all the nutrients I can get in my veggies, so I kept them away from heat. Hence my partially raw pizza. I ended up only cooking the chicken, and the crust for as little I can, just to crisp it up.My measurements were rough, so there is no exact recipe. But anything goes!

Nut Crust 

3 Tbsp Raw Almonds
3 Tbsp Raw Walnuts
2 Tbsp Raw Pistachio
2 Tbsp Shredded Coconut 
1 Tbsp Flax Seed
1 tsp Kalunji (Nigella)
3 tsp Pinenuts
2 Tbsp Raw Sesame Seeds
2 Tbsp Zaatar Mix
2 tsp Turmeric
2 tsp Sultana Raisins
2 Tbsp Dried Figs
2 Cloves Garlic

1 Egg
(extra ground nuts or flour to fix dough consistency)                     
Kneaded Dough
  • Grind & Mix together all Nuts, Fruit & Spicing Ingredients
  • Add Egg & knead dough until you get a play-dough consistency
  • More ground nuts or flour can be added to reach desired consistency
  • Pre-heat Oven at 350°
  • Oil your tray or baking dish
  • Press dough to form ½ cm pizza crust
  • Bake for 15 min or until slightly golden

On the side I had prepared the Pizza Sauce

1 small Tomato
½ Onion
3 cloves Garlic
2 tsp Tomato paste
2 tsp roasted Chilli peppers
½ tsp Oregano
½ tsp Basil
¼ tsp Black pepper
pinch of salt

I used some of the pizza sauce to flavor my chicken, but the remainder of the sauce was used as a raw sauce.

While cooking the crust, I added some cheese.

Then topped it with my pizza sauce flavored chicken bits.
To treat my self I made some caramelized onions. But fresh is better. If I had green onions I would have used that instead.

Caramelized Onions
1 small Onion
2 Tbsp Sugar
¼ cup Water

- Boil water - Melt Sugar - Add sliced Onions - 
Stir until water evaporates & sugar starts browning
Over the chicken bits, I added the sauce, and then the caramelized onions.

Now to choose my Toppings.

Red peppers
Black Olives

The amount is up to you. Add more or less of what you like and dislike.

Tasted wonderful, and I loved the colors.
