Easy Meatless Monday Cashew Cheese Pizza
I’m a pizza fanatic in my house, and I’ve turned my toddler into one too. One of my favorites to make is a simple tomato and cashew cheese pizza. It’s and easy one for meatless Monday. I make the cashew cheese from scratch, so that takes some planning, but it is a simple and easy recipe. Here it is:
Cashew cheese for pizza:
2 cups raw cashews
1 Tbs. lemon juice
salt and pepper to taste
milk to make creamier if necessary
Soak raw cashews overnight. drain and rinse and put in blender or food processor. Add lemon juice and blend until smooth. If the cheese is too thick (should be the consistency of peanut butter) add milk (I like coconut, but whatever you have on hand is fine) 2 tablespoons at a time to get to the right consistency. Then I just season with salt and pepper to taste. set that aside.
To make the pizza I get my favorite pre-made dough and pizza sauce. Spread the cashew cheese on your pizza and bake in a 400 degree oven for 15-20 minutes. The results:
I can assure you this is delicious. I love the creamy cashew cheese on the pizza, it makes the best vegan pizza!
