Spicy Fiesta Corn Pizza

~ raw, vegan, gluten-free ~

This isn’t your typical pizza, and it surely isn’t the what I grew up eating in the name of pizza. Remember Totino’s Pizza?  Back in the day, I think we paid a whopping 50 cents for a whole pizza.

What does that tell you about the quality of ingredients used? I shudder to think about it now.  But I won’t fib… I loved them.  As I grew up, my taste buds became more refined.

I become a crust connoisseur which worked out perfectly in my father-daughter relationship. I would peel the topping off and put it on dad’s plate, and I’d eat the crust. Lol,  He felt it was a shame to fill up on bread and I thought it was a shame to fill up on cheese and everything greasy within.

But things change, and today I like the crust, AND I like the toppings. :)  Thank goodness that the ingredients I use are made of whole, organic foods.  This is what I WANT to put into my body… would you look at this list of ingredients for Tontino’s Pizza?!

I know that many of you don’t eat these pizzas or maybe never have but just in case there is someone out there who still eats them or any other boxed pizza,  I want to encourage you to think twice about what you are putting into your body.  So do me a flavor (yes I meant flavor) and give this recipe a try.


Yields 5 cups batter

Pizza crust:



Pizza crust:

  1. In the food processor, fitted with the “S” blade, process the walnuts down to a small cornmeal size.  Be careful that you don’t over-process the walnuts, as it will cause too much of the oils from the nuts to be released.
  2. Add the ground flax, hemp seeds, and salt.  Pulse together and place in a medium-sized bowl.
  3. Add the almond pulp and 1/2 cup of water.  Mix well with hands.  If the batter feels too dry and crumbly, add a few more tablespoons until it is moist enough to stick together.  I used 1 cup of water, but it depends on how much moisture is left in your almond pulp.
  4. To create the pizza form, create a large ball with the desired amount of dough.  I used roughly 2 cups to make a mini pizza.
  5. Flatten the dough out on a teflex sheet or wax paper, creating a lip around the edge.   Transfer to the mesh sheet that comes with the dehydrator.
  6. Sprinkle extra hemp seeds and coarse sea salt on top of each crust.
  7. Dehydrate at 115 degrees (F) for 10 – 18  hours.  The length of time will depend on the machine you use and the humidity in the air.  I didn’t dry mine totally dry.  I wanted some moisture to remain so it would be semi-soft when I bite down on it.


  1. Create a layer of sprouts on the bottom.
  2. Spread the Raw Spicy Fiesta Corn Dip on top and sprinkle the diced tomato and onion on top of that.
  3. Eat and enjoy!

      Awe, thank you Angela. You are such a sweetie. My goodness, you are experiencing some hot weather! You need to build one of those screened in dehydrators that you can set outside in that type of heat. :) Stay cool. Blessings, amie sue

    Thanks for the fab recipe – and I’m so chuffed to have found a use for my leftover almond pulp! Until now I’ve just been tossing mine (with a pang of guilt to boot) as I didn’t know what else to use it for. Double win!

    • amie-sue says:

      Good evening Lisa… oooh goodness, no more tossing the almond pulp! I have oodles of recipes that use nut pulp. :) It freezes well so create a stock pile. hehe Have a great evening and keep in touch. amie sue

    Shoot…it looks awsome but I was looking for a pizza crust with not much fat or nuts.
    Maybe from sprouted buckwheat and almond pulp…
    Any ideas?

    • amie-sue says:

      Gosh Ariane, I am sorry it took a bit to respond to you. This comment got lost in the shuffle. Both of your ideas would be great in a crust. Just swap out the walnuts for one of them. :) Have a great evening, amie sue
