We had a pizza party last night! I made my usual whole wheat crust and topped with our favorite toppings: spinach, artichoke hearts, garlic, tomato, and basil (from my window sill basil plant – I felt fancy about that). The big difference this time was homemade vegan mozzarella cheese! I tried this new vegan mozzarella recipe I saw on Reddit. It was fantastic!
I’m an admitted dairy cheese addict and thus very skeptical of “fake” cheese. The cashew queso recipe from Post Punk Kitchen is my one exception. I’m big time in love with that fake cheese so when I came across this recipe for fresh margherita style mozzarella made with cashews I wanted to give it a try. It’s also great! Cashews are magic! I think this stuff is so much better than Daiya. It’s a lot less labor intensive than the cashew queso and really comes together pretty quickly. Here’s a photo of the leftover cheese after I topped the pizza.
And one more photo of the pizza because I think it’s pretty.
