Another Thrive-inspired pizza, with a chickpea/sunflower seed crust and pesto sauce!
Ingredients:
Crust2 cups ground sunflower seeds1 cup sprouted chickpeas (can use cooked chickpeas as well)1/4 cup coconut oil/hemp oil mix1/4 cup coconut oil1 tsp cumin1 tsp curry powder1/2 tsp turmericSea salt to taste
Sauce (my homemade vegan pesto!)2 cups fresh basil leaves3 cloves garlic1/4 cup pine nuts4.5 Tbs extra virgin olive oil3 Tbs nutritional yeast2 Tbs Galaxy Vegan Grated Topping (optional, or use nutritional yeast) Sea salt to tastePepper to taste 
Toppings (can use anything you want, really)Grape tomatoes, halvedBaby bella mushroomsYu choy Sweet onionRed pepper flakesNutritional yeast (as you can tell, I love this stuff) 
Directions:For crust:  Put in food processor until desired consistency is reached.  Spread on a lightly-oiled or parchment paper-covered pizza pan .
For sauce: Put basil and nuts in food processor until desired consistency is reached.  Slowly add in oil.  Add seasonings, salt, and pepper last to taste.
Bake in over for about 45 min - 1 hour at 300 degrees.
So nutritious, wholesome, and rich.  A heads up that the pizzas are not what you would expect from traditional “pizza,” and might not hold together as slices!  A fork (and big appetite) is recommended.  Thanks Brendan Brazier for the inspiration!
