Basil & Mozzarella Friday Night Pizza

  • Author: Liv B
  • Total Time: 40 minutes
  • Yield: 4 servings


Homemade pizza with fresh vegan mozzarella, basil and balsamic glaze.


Fresh Vegan Mozzarella:

  • 1/2 cup raw cashews
  • cup nondairy milk like oat or soy
  • 2 tbsp tapioca starch (makes it stretchy and gooey)
  • 3 tbsp nutritional yeast
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice


  • 1 ball of pizza dough
  • 1 cup pizza sauce
  • ¼ cup chopped fresh oregano and or basil
  • Balsamic glaze (I buy mine at Costco)


1. Preheat oven to 425 F.
2. Add the cashews, nondairy milk, tapioca starch, nutritional yeast, salt and lemon juice to your blender. Blend on high speed for 1 to 2 minutes, until completely smooth.
3. Pour the mixture into a small pot and heat on the stove on medium heat, whisking frequently, until thickened. It will thicken quickly, and be very gooey and stretchy. Once it has thickened considerably, remove from heat.
4. Spread the pizza dough out on a baking sheet. Spread the sauce overtop. Using a spoon, drop dollops of the mozzarella onto the pizza. Add fresh basil and oregano, then bake in preheated oven for 15 minutes, or until bottom is golden and mozzarella is starting to brown.
5. Remove from the oven, drizzle with balsamic glaze, and add an extra sprinkle of fresh basil.
