Vegan pizza with cashew cheese

  • SHARE
You could never live without cheese and now you don't have to.

This is one of my go to recipes when I am really craving some nice pizza and cheese even (it mostly happens on a hangover day, oh yes vegans get hungover). This pizza is so nice and comforting without using dairy or any animal products. Also it’s really quick and easy to prepare.





INGREDIENT:


Dough and topping ingredients:

  • Vegan pizza dough (most is vegan anyway, you can get that in most supermarkets)
  • Tomato paste
  • Oregano
  • 1/2 red onions (or any onion)
  • 1 large tomato
  • A couple of brown mushrooms
  • Grilled artichokes
  • Olive oil

Vegan cheese ingredients:

  • 2 handfuls of cashew nuts
  • Juice of half a lemon
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 1/2tbsp nutritional yeast flakes
  • Sea salt (or any salt but it tastes best with sea salt)
  • Dash of pepper

METHOD:

Preheat oven to 180C.

For the vegan cheese put two handfuls of cashews (depending on your blender you might have to increase the quantity a bit for it to blend properly) into a small blender, add all other cheese ingredients and a bit of water - make sure you add just enough for it to become a smooth but thick paste. You might have to start with less water and add more water gradually. Blend until you have a smooth paste - you might have to add more salt (cashews are salt hungry) and more nutritional yeast for a cheesier taste. Set aside.


Take the vegan pizza dough, and spread tomato paste on it (cover it well), sprinkle a little bit of olive oil, some garlic/garlic powder and some oregano. Then add the vegan cheese to the topping. Slice tomatoes mushrooms and artichokes, cut onions into rings and add to the pizza.


Bake on a baking sheet or pizza tray for 8-10 minutes or until crisp. Serve with a nice green salad.
