Best Vegan Pizza

By Forks over Knives  
Love all the flavors on this vegan pizza – sun-dried tomatoes, jalapeño, basil, corn, and cashew cream; makes for a delicious, multicolored meal!


• 1 small head broccoli, florets chopped into small pieces, top of stalk diced ( cup)

• cup halved cherry tomatoes

• kernels from 1 ear fresh corn

• cup coarsely chopped red onion

• jalapeño, thinly sliced

• 4 oil-packed sun-dried tomatoes, diced

• extra-virgin olive oil, for drizzling and brushing

• 1 (16-ounce) ball of pizza dough (readymade pizza dough from Whole Foods or Trader Joe’s)

• cup fresh basil leaves

• 2 tablespoons fresh thyme leaves

• pinches of red pepper flakes

• sea salt and freshly ground black pepper

• Cashew Cream (see recipe below)


• 1 cup raw (not toasted) cashews

• cup water

• 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

• 2 tablespoons lemon juice

• 1 garlic clove, peeled

• teaspoon sea salt

• Cashew Cream Instructions


• Place the cashews, water, olive oil, lemon juice, garlic, and salt in a high-speed blender and blend until completely smooth and creamy. You can also soak the cashews for 4-6 hours or overnight to soften and make them easier to blend.


• Preheat the oven to 450F.

• In a medium bowl, combine the broccoli, tomatoes, corn, onion, jalapeño, and sundried tomatoes and drizzle with olive oil and pinches of salt and pepper. Toss to coat and taste. The vegetables should be well-seasoned and well-coated with the olive oil so that the vegetables are flavorful throughout the pizza.

• Stretch the pizza dough onto a 14-inch pizza pan. Brush the outer edges of the dough lightly with olive oil and spoon a few scoops of cashew cream onto the center of the dough, just enough to spread it into a thin layer. Distribute the vegetables onto the dough.

• Bake 15 minutes, or until the crust is golden, cooked through, and the broccoli is tender and roasted. Remove from the oven and drizzle generously with the cashew cream (if your cashew cream is too thick to drizzle, stir in a little water.) Top with the fresh basil, fresh thyme, and pinches of red pepper flakes.
