Margherita Pizza Recipe

By Hot For Food

🔪Prep Time: 15 minutes

👩‍🍳Cook Time: 15 minutes


1/2 C raw cashews, soaked for at least 2 hours

1 C unsweetened nondairy milk

2 tsp lemon juice

1 1/2 tsp tapioca flour/starch

1 tsp nutritional yeast

1 tsp sea salt

1/4 tsp onion powder

1/2 tsp garlic powder

1/4 tsp white pepper

1 C pizza sauce

1/2 C whole basil leaves


1Drain and rinse the raw cashews from the soaking water. Add to a blender with almond milk, lemon juice, tapioca, nutritional yeast, onion powder, garlic powder, sea salt, and white pepper and combine until very smooth.

2Heat this cheese mixture over medium heat in a small sauce pan, whisking until thickened (approximately 8 to 10 minutes).

3Spread pizza sauce evenly over pizza crust. Make your own dough using my recipe, or you can purchase pizza dough from the deli section of most grocery stores.

4Dollop the cashew mozzarella using a spoon. You can also pour the mixture into a piping bag with a thick tip, or into a Ziploc bag where you can snip the corner and squeeze out the mixture. It doesn’t have to be even. Spread it out a little with a spoon or your finger.

5Bake the pizza in an oven preheated to 450°F and add basil leaves on top in the last minute of baking.
