Chef Alissa Cohen's Raw Greek Pizza Recipe

Tara Donne

Redolent with Mediterranean flavors and sage, a favorite Greek herb. Sage leaves can be crisped in the dehydrator by laying them out on a mesh rash, then topping them with another mesh rack so they don’t blow around. Dehydrate for 24 hours and store in a covered container on the countertop for up to a week. The same method can be used for drying any fresh herbs.

Spread the cheese over the crusts. Toss the spinach with a pinch of salt and splash of olive oil. Arrange the spinach on the pizzas, followed by the tomato, onion, and olives. Add the sage leaves, a pinch of sea salt, the red pepper flakes, and a drizzle of olive oil.
