This food is all raw! That means that the pizza crust and tostada are made from nuts, seeds, soaked grains or sprouts. Yes the toppings too! Even that “grated cheese” look-a-like and the sauces. Everything is based on fresh raw ingredients- vegetable bases too!

Dining out has come full circle for me! I never thought I would see the day where pizza and tacos among other things would be featured as “healthy”. Actually pizza and tacos are not the worst foods in the world when you make them yourself with more natural ingredients and when you don’t over indulge. It’s hard though when you eat these in fast food places because they can be prepared with quick cheap ingredients loaded with white starches, sugars and salts. That being said, since these are two of my many binge foods from back in the day, it’s of great surprise and pleasure that I CAN INDULGE here at QUINTESSENCE and really not be so worried about it.
The pizza here was Italian “sausage” flavored nut meat with creamy nut cheese. It was delicious especially with that side of pesto sauce! The tostada is made with “refried” beans, guacamole, lettuce, tomato, jalapeño, “sour cream” and nut meat! I am quickly hitting everything on this menu!
