Here is a great tasting pizza that has a nice thin crisp crust that’s to die for. This pizza is really wonderful, even those die hard pizza lovers will love this pizza. And this gluten free pizza does not contains any animal products, thus it’s very healthy and will do the body good. This pizza is really quick to make, and the crust can be made ahead of time and frozen for later use.
Pizza Crust Ingredients:
3 – Cups of Cooked Organic Brown Rice
2 – Cups of Organic Beans of Any Kind
1/2 – Teaspoon of Organic Xanthine Gum – (found at any health food store)
2 – Teaspoons of Organic Garlic Powder
3 – Teaspoons of Organic Baking Powder
3 – Teaspoons of Organic White Vinegar
Enough Filtered Water to Blend
Organic Spray Olive Oil
Take a 17 inch cast iron pan or any other large pan and spray the interior liberally with organic olive oil. Now blend together the rest of the ingredients with enough water so that the blender will work—not too much. Then pour the batter into the pan and liberally spray the top of the batter with olive oil. Next place the pan into a preheated 475 degree oven for 35 to 45 minutes or until the crust stops bubbling or mostly stops bubbling. Then remove from the oven and let cool. The crust will become crisp when it cools down.
Ingredients for Topping:
4 – Tablespoons of Organic Tomato Paste
2 – Cups of Whole Organic Kale Leaves
2 – Cups of Organic Black Olives Sliced
2 – Cups of Organic Red Bell Pepper Chopped
2 – Cups of Organic Orange Bell Pepper Chopped
1 – Medium Organic Onion Chopped
(Optional) – Organic Vegan Cheese
(Optional) – Organic Red Pepper Flakes
Spoon on the organic tomato paste, then add the kale leaves on top of that. Then chop up all the rest of the veggies and place them on top the kale… and then add whatever else you like. I like adding some slightly sweet hot sauce on my pizza, but add whatever you really enjoy, perhaps some vegan cheese.
Slice and Serve – Makes 12 Slices
Health Benefits of Organic Brown Rice
Brown Rice compared to white rice has a lot of health benefits. Brown Rice is full of Thiamine, Niacin, Pyridoxine, Vitamin K, Calcium, Iron, Phosphorus, and Potassium. Brown Rice is rich in fiber, controls blood sugar and cholesterol, and works wonders for ulcers and diarrhea. Plus if a person is debilitated brown rice is very easy to digest and contains needed nutrients for the growth of bones, muscles, nails, hair, and teeth. Soaking Brown Rice in water for 30 minutes prior to cooking will make it easier to cook. And pressure cooking also preserves more nutrients and cuts the cooking time to about 20 minutes creating fluffy brown rice. Right now lots of the big box stores are carrying large bags of organic brown rice at great prices. And brown rice can also be found on-line in large quantities such as 25 and 50 pound bags. And some supermarkets also have bulk bin organic brown rice at great prices.
Health Benefits of Organic Beans
One cup of legumes contains up to 16 grams of total fiber, and ups to 7 grams of soluble fiber. This creates 70% of the daily fiber allowance we need to stay healthy and stave off heart attacks. In fact plant based diets not only help to prevent heart attacks in general, they even help those people who’ve had 1, 2, or 3 heart attacks in the past and want to keep from having another. Angiograms with people who have vascular blockages building up, when put on a whole foods plant based diet completely reverse their cardiovascular disease— Amazing!
There have been many studies showing that animal protein intake is directly related to diabetes. And being on a plant based diet rich in fiber, with lots of plant based protein, plant sterols, and lots of antioxidants (Black Beans contain more antioxidants that Blueberries) and choosing plant based low glycemic foods can heal diabetes. The glycemic index of pinto beans is almost 39 or 39%, while white wheat flour has a glycemic index of 100, or 100% which is not good. And the total amount of grams of carbs times the glycemic index gives us the total glycemic load. A 1/2 cup of pinto beans contains 22 grams of carbs, times 39% which is the glycemic index = 9 a very low glycemic load. Thus beans are great for those who have diabetes and want to control their blood sugar and start transitioning to getting off of insulin, getting of of medications and start working with a whole foods plant based diet.
Studies show that those who eat a fiber rich diet have a much lower chance of coming down with cancer, and especially colon and rectal cancer. And beans and legumes are full of fiber and antioxidants that help to prevent and heal cancer. In fact in laboratory studies it’s been shown that cancer can be turned on and off by just changing diet. Cancers are activated with animal based proteins and put into neutral and negated with plant based diets. Studies such as the “China Study” show that those who eat lots of plant based nutrition full of fiber have a much lower chance of coming down with cancer compared to diets rich in animal protein. Animal protein creates an acidic reaction it the body, while plant based diet and protein create a alkaline based reaction in the body. Acid creates inflammation, and inflammation leads to disease, and sometimes that disease expresses itself as cancer. Thus eating plant based diets rich in fiber and plant sterols such as beans is essential for great health.
