Markus Rothkranz Healthy Pizza Recipe

In this videoYouTube star, lifestyle guru, and motivational speaker Markus Rothkranz shows viewers how to make a pizza that is actually good for you! He calls it the IncrediPizza and the recipe is raw, vegan, and gluten-free.

Markus starts by showing how to make the crust. He uses young Thai coconut meat, coconut water, nutritional yeast, red onion, and ground chia seeds. He blends them all together in a powerful blender like a VitaMix. Then he spreads the mixture out on a dehydrator sheet and puts it into the dehydrator for two to four hours until it gets crusty on top. Then he flips it over and lets the crust sit overnight.

Then Markus makes the tomato sauce. He uses fresh tomatoes, sun-dried tomatoes, olive oil, apple cider vinegar, cashew milk, dates, garlic, sea salt, black pepper, and cayenne pepper. He blends all the ingredients together to make the sauce. To make the cheese, Markus uses cashews, pine nuts, nutritional yeast, apple cider vinegar, water, and sea salt. He blends the ingredients together to make a dairy-free “cheese.”

Markus then demonstrates how to make vegan “pepperoni.” He uses coconut meat, Irish moss gel, sun-dried tomatoes, red bell pepper, chopped raisins, beets, and soy sauce. He puts all the ingredients in the blender until just chopped up and combined. He then makes small round patties of the mixture and puts them in the dehydrator for an hour or two, then flips them and dehydrates the other side. Finally, he constructs the pizza with the sauce, “cheese,” “pepperoni,” and vegetable toppings. He suggests putting the constructed pizza back in the dehydrator for around an hour to make it warm and crispy.

Nathaniel Ru and the Innovative Sweetgreen Restaurant Concept

Sweetgreen is a truly exciting concept in the fast food industry. In fact, many would have called it impossible before the restaurant’s launch in 2007.

Sweetgreen is a fast food restaurant focused on salads as the main dish. In a world where there are people who wouldn’t dare throw a lunch party with salad as the main dish, this restaurant chain has thrived and grown extremely quickly. In just 9 short years, the chain now has 40 locations in major cities throughout the country including New York City, Washington DC, Boston, Chicago and cities in California. Nathaniel Ru is the CEO and founder of the innovative chain. There are certain business elements that he states are the most important to him, to retain the integrity of his brand.

 

  • Customers should wait in line 15-minutes or less,
  • The ordering process should take about 2 to 3 minutes,
  • One team member designs your salad from start to finish to ensure accuracy,
  • After you’ve completed your order, you step out of line and pick up your food at a different spot,
  • Technology should make ordering easy in-app or online,
  • Food should be locally sourced and organic whenever possible,
  • Fresh produce should be delivered to each location every morning,
  • Staff should make all dressings and other signature foods from scratch daily,
  • Each branch should serve casual diners for workday lunch, dinner and weekend meals,
  • Staff should smile often and be friendly and welcoming, while walking you through your entire order,
  • Each location should feature a clean, modern design, so patrons feel safe to eat there, and
  • Patrons should be able to see the kitchen and everything that goes on during the preparation of their food

Ru has managed to successfully, turn this concept into a successful and franchise-able package that works in all regions of the country.

 

Trendy, Convenient and Fun

One of the most exciting things about going out and shopping is the experience of shopping in trendy stores, with large pictures of models wearing the modern fashions you’re shopping for. Ru sought to emulate this feeling with his restaurant designs. He wanted every restaurant to give customers that same feeling of trendiness and shopping they get at their favorite upscale stores.

You will see large, beautiful photos of the foods the restaurant serves throughout every location. This also contributes to the overall pleasant experience and enjoyment of your meal.
