Vegan Margherita Pizza with Cauliflower Crust

 

Serves 3 

Ingredients:

Crust (Makes 3 small pizza crusts):

  • 1 Head of Cauliflower
  • 1/ 4 Cup Nutritional Yeast
  • 3 Tablespoon flaxseed meal + 8 Tbsp water (Mix together/ egg substitute)
  • 2 Tablespoon Almond Flour 
  • 2 Tablespoons Fresh Thyme (or dried)
  • 2 Tablespoons Fresh Oregano (or dried)
  • 1 Teaspoon Salt
  • 1 Teaspoon Pepper

 

Sauce:

  • 2 8oz Can Tomato Sauce
  • 1 1/2 Tablespoons Garlic Powder
  • 1 1/2 Tablespoon Onion Powder
  • 2 Tablespoons Fresh Thyme (or dried)
  • 2 Tablespoons Fresh Oregano (or dried)
  • 2 Tablespoons Fresh Parsley (or dried)
  • 2 Teaspoons Pepper
  • 1 Teaspoon Salt
  • 1 Teaspoon Red Pepper Flakes

 

Cashew Cheese: 

  • 1 1/2 Cup Cashews (Soaked in boil water for 15 minutes)
  • 3/4 Cup Water
  • 5 Tablespoons Nutritional Yeast
  • 2 Tablespoon Almond Flower
  • 2 Tablespoons Olive Oil
  • 1 Teaspoon Lemon Juice
  • 1 Teaspoon Garlic Powder
  • 1 Teaspoon Onion Powder
  • Salt to taste (1 Teaspoon)

 

Toppings:

  • 2 Large Tomatos
  • 1 Bunch of Fresh Basil
  • 1 Teaspoon Red Pepper Flakes

 

  1. Preheat oven to 375F
  2. Mix 1 1/2 Tablespoon flaxseed meal plus 4 Tbsp water; mix together and let sit for 5 minutes. 
  3. In a large blender add all crust ingredients and blend on high until everything is well combined and mushy. If too dry add 1 more Tablespoon of flaxseed meal (mixture).
  4. On a cookie sheet with parchment paper add 1/3 of the crust mixture and make a circle. Bake for 20  to 25 minutes (if you would like it to be more crispy add 10 more minutes). Repeat this 2 more times. Crust should be slightly bouncy and the ends should be crispy.
  5. In a large pan add all of the sauce ingredients and cook on medium heat for 3 minutes.
  6. In a bullet or blender add all of the cashew cheese ingredients and blend well. Cheese should look a little thicker than cream.
  7. Add sauce to the cauliflower crust and spread well ( I like mine saucy). Add 1 tablespoon or larger of cheese randomly on the sauce, add sliced tomatoes, a pinch of red pepper flakes,  and pieces of fresh basil.
  8. Bake for 10 to 15 minutes.
