Ingredients

  • 2 cups organic all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup organic whole wheat flour
  • 2 1/4 teaspoon active dry yeast
  • 1 cup warm water
  • 2 teaspoons sea salt
  • 2 teaspoons agave
  • 14 oz. crushed tomatoes (one can)
  • 3 cloves garlic, (minced)
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1/4 cup raw cashews
  • 1 cup hot water
  • 2 tablespoons + 1 teaspoon tapioca starch
  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 3/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice

Directions

  1. Combine flour, active dry yeast, warm water, salt, and one teaspoon of agave and knead for 10 minutes. Cover and let rise in a warm place for 60 minutes until doubled. While the dough is rising, you can make the pizza sauce and the non-dairy “mozzarella” cheese.

  2. To make the sauce, sauté the garlic in a little vegetable broth or the olive oil in a small saucepan for a minute or two on medium heat. Add crushed tomatoes, spices, and one teaspoon of agave, and salt and pepper. Reduce heat to low and let simmer while you make the cheese.

  3. To make the vegan cheese, blend cashews, hot water, tapioca starch, olive oil, garlic, salt, and lemon juice together in a high-speed blender until completely smooth, about 1 minute. Pour into a small saucepan and cook, stirring constantly over medium high heat. After a couple of minutes the mixture will start to look weird, like it’s curdling or separating. This is totally normal, reduce heat to medium and keep stirring so you don’t burn the cheese to the bottom of the pot. Keep cooking and stirring until really thick (about 2-3 more minutes) and the mixture becomes like a cohesive mass of melted dairy cheese. Remove from heat and let cool a bit while you assemble the pizzas. (This non-dairy cheese stores well in a sealed container in the fridge for a few days and can be used to make excellent grilled cheese sandwiches, mac and cheese, etc…)

  4. Pre-heat the oven to 450° F. Spread the sauce over the dough now that it's risen, add any pre-cooked topping that you like, and spread your cheese over the toppings. Bake for 10-15 minutes.

Although everyone loves traditional pepperoni as a topping, it can be fun to spice up your pizza using unusual and unexpected ingredients. It is obviously an incredibly versatile food, so you have plenty of freedom to choose your toppings, cheese, and sauce. The great thing about it is that it is easy to tailor it to the needs of your guests.

Meat lovers will love a barbecue chicken pie with cheddar cheese instead of the traditional mozzarella. For a unique vegetarian pie, try adding zucchini, eggplant, roasted red peppers, feta cheese, and olive oil. Or you could even try a dessert themed pizza, using a cinnamon glaze for the sauce and topped with apples and pears.
