Pizza with Homemade Cashew Cheese
Pizza with Homemade Cashew Cheese
Method
  • In a bowl, soak the cashews in a generous amount of water for 2-3 hours.
  • Drain and place them in a food processor along with the rest of the ingredients for the cashew cheese and beat for 1-2 minutes until completely combined.
  • Transfer the mixture to a saucepan and place over medium to high heat.
  • Stir with a wooden spoon for 2-3 minutes, continuously. The mixture will look as if it has split.
  • Lower heat to low and continue stirring so that the mixture doesn’t stick to the bottom of the saucepan, until it thickens and has the consistency of melted cheese.
  • Remove from heat and set is aside to cool.
  • In a mixer’s bowl, add the yeast, water and honey. Stir well and set it aside for 5 minutes, until the yeast activates.
  • Beat on medium speed for 5-8 minutes with the hook attachment, until a dough is created and it pulls away from the sides of the bowl.
  • Transfer to a bowl brushed with olive oil. Cover with a towel or plastic wrap and set it aside for at least 1 hour so it can rest and double in size.
  • To make the sauce, place a saucepan over medium to high heat.
  • Add the olive oil and garlic. Sauté for 1-2 minutes.  
  • Add the remaining ingredients and simmer for 5-7 minutes.
  • Preheat oven to 200* C (390* F) Fan.
  • When the dough has risen, remove from bowl and lightly knead.
  • Divide it in half, dust with some flour and roll out in to circle that is 25-30 cm in diameter. The dough can make one large pizza or two smaller ones.
  • Press down on the dough with your fingers to make small indentations and leave the border as is.
  • Spread the tomato sauce over the dough, add the slices of tomato and pieces of the cashew cheese.
  • Carefully transfer to a baking pan and bake for 20-25 minutes.
  • Serve with oregano or basil leaves.
