PIzza Twice in One Day!

Another thing I love about Alaska in the summer:  I did yoga at 9pm on my sunny porch this evening and it was 80 degrees!  I'm a little sad that we have reached the solstice and will slowly start losing our evening light.  However, it is still light until well past midnight, so I won't complain.  

After spending my afternoon doing laundry in Trapper Creek,  I thought I deserved a couple of treats.

First, raw savory pizza. 

Pizza Crust:  Russell James's bread

Tomato Sauce:  recipe from Delightfully Raw

Pizza Cheese
1/2 cup soaked macadamia nuts
1/2 cup soaked pine nuts
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 cup nooch
1/2 cup red pepper
water to desired consistency

Toppings:  spinach, peppers, marinated mushrooms, parsley

Then, dessert pizza happened.  I am not a great raw recipe inventor, but I do find some tasty ideas online.    Follow the links to make this lovely treat! 

Toppings:  peaches and a strawberry

Question:  Are you a recipe inventor or a recipe finder? 


  1. your dessert pizza is brilliant!!! both pizzas look amazing.

    wow, sunlight til after midnight must be pretty wild!

  2. We're coming home tomorrow: I'd love it to be 80 degrees, but it never gets that warm in Homer. Glad it sounds like you're having a good summer.

    I guess I'm more of a recipe inventor, but I love to browse recipes and often "find" recipes that I then tweak that way.

    The night light is crazy, Kelli. I love it, but people who visit have a really hard time sleeping. Currently it doesn't get dark at all, just a little dusky from 2-3 am.

    Hope you have a safe, quick trip home, Ela!

    I was just in Fairbanks for a outdoor wedding and it was 90 degrees! I had sweat dripping down my back- I felt so bad for the bride and groom in their formal wear.

  5. beautiful pizza--I have missed raw food prep for several weeks in a row now and I am just missing all of the fun. Simple, easy things right now due to family health stuff.
    Peace and Raw Health,
