I make a juice almost everyday resulting in a lot of leftover pulp, does this sound familiar to you? Do you feel guilty tossing that nutrient rich gold in the compost bin knowing that there has to be something you can do with it? Well, let me share with you that your hunch was right as there are many ways you can use leftover pulp and this pizza recipe is just one fabulous example to get you inspired and started with getting the most from your produce and your daily juice!
Did you know you can even make desserts from your pulp? Some of you may have already seen me make cupcakes from leftover pulp but for those of you who missed that video you can catch it here.
Often times people ask me “how do you afford to eat as well as you do,” assuming that Organic and raw/vegan foods cost more than a conventional diet. Really, when you think about it I’m not buying meat, dairy, fish nor eggs so my money goes a long ways in the produce sections and bulk bins. Plus eating the way I do allows me to put any scraps I accumulate back into my body or garden.
I am a huge fan of using every bit of my produce from carrot and beet tops to broccoli and herb stems as well as the peel of my garlic and onions. I even regrow foods such as green onions and lemon grass on my window sill as a means to save money and recycle life energy.

Veggie Pulp Pizza Pie
Think twice before putting that leftover veggie pulp in your compost bin!
Created By: Christina Ross
Recipe type: Pizza
Cuisine: raw, vegan, resourceful
What you’ll need
16oz veg pulp
1+ ¼ cup flax meal
1 cup h20
¼ tsp sea salt
2 tbsp tamari
3 garlic cloves

1 yellow bell pepper
Juice of 1 lemon
2 tsps sesame seeds
Blend all ingredients except for the sesame seeds. Once creamy and well mixed sprinkle sesame seeds or “Gosmasio” around crust.
Spread on dehydrator sheet creating a crust if you desire. I used my small offset spatula to achieve a raised crust.
Dehydrate for 15 hours or more at 115 degrees. Drying time will depend on your machine.
