Veggie pizza with sunflower seed cheese

Veggie pizza with sunflower seed cheese
This recipe is a variation of my pizzas with cashew cheese but I wanted to try it with sunflower seeds as well and it tasted very nice. Also, they are cheaper as well and if you have a nut allergy this recipe will be great for you.

Preheat the oven to 200C (400F).

Evenly spread 1 1/2 – 2 tbsp on your pizza base. Also drizzle some olive, a little bit of salt, garlic powder and oregano on it.

Then making the sunflower seed cheese. Put all ingredients into a powerful smoothie blender (if yours isn't very powerful you might have to soak the sunflower seeds for a few hours beforehand and then use less water). Blend until you get a smooth paste.

Spoon the sunflower seed cheese paste on your pizza base on top of the tomato sauce layer. Then slice up 2 closed cup mushrooms and 1 large ripe tomato, some pepper, and the olives and also put them on your pizza.

Drizzle a little bit more oil over it and a dash of sea salt.

Put in the oven for 10 minutes. Enjoy!

Serve with some rocket on top and a nice mixed salad.
