Cashew Cheese Pizza


  • 1 packet of dry active yeast
  • 1 tsp of sugar (we used turbinado sugar)
  • 1/2 cup of warm water
  • 1 1/2 cup of all purpose flour
  • 1 tbs of olive oil
  • For sauce
  • 1 tbs of olive oil
  • 3 cloves of garlic
  • 2 cups of chopped tomatoes
  • 1/2 tsp of dried oregano
  • For cheese
  • 3/4 cup of soaked cashews
  • 1/4 cup of filtered water
  • 1 tbs of apple cider vinegar
  • 1/4 tsp of pink himalayan salt
  • 2 tbs of nutritional yeast


  1. Combine dry active yeast with sugar and pour in warm water. Stir until yeast is dissolved and let stand for 5 to 10 minutes

  2. In a separate bowl combine flour and olive oil. When yeast is ready (if yeast is not foamy start over) mix into dry ingredients

  3. Knead dough on flat surface. Coat the bowl you just used with a dash of olive oil and place dough back in bowl. Cover with a small towel and set in a warm room for two hours

  4. Minutes before dough is ready heat a small pot on medium heat. Add olive oil, garlic, and dried oregano. Stir for one minute and add tomatoes. Simmer uncovered for 15 to 20 minutes

  5. Add all ingredients for cashew cheese into a blender or food processor. Blend until smooth and set aside

  6. Preheat oven to 375°, grab dough (it should have expanded to a little less than double the size)

  7. Put dough onto a pizza pan and shape with hands. Top evenly with sauce and cashew cheese. Next add desired toppings(we used shittake mushrooms, red onion, kalamata olives, and made a dressing for the crust out of garlic powder, nutritional yeast flakes, and olive oil)

  8. Bake for 15 minutes then allow to cool for 5 minutes. Garnish with lots of fresh chopped basil, parsely, and enjoy
