Pizza is probably my favourite food. We tend to have it about once a week. And to be honest, I am a creature of habit. I like to make the same type of pizza every week – mushrooms, artichoke hearts, peppers, pizza sauce & daiya. It’s pizza perfection in my opinion. Terry on the other hand, prefers I switch things up every once in awhile. And with the fresh basil and gorgeous heirloom tomatoes at the market, I thought I would make a nice margarita pizza.
Margarita Pizza (serves 4… or 2 hungry people!)
1 prepared pizza crust if you are like me and can’t bake to save your life (or make your own)
1.5 tbsp roasted garlic balsamic oil (or 1 tbsp each of olive oil & balsamic vinegar)
1 medium sized heirloom tomato, chopped
1 large handful of basil, chopped
1/2 cup of cashews (soaked for 4-8 hours)
the juice of half a lemon
3 tbsp of nutritional yeast
a pinch of salt
Follow the directions of your pizza crust to bake it in the oven. Brush the crust with oil, top it with the tomato & basil. Drain and rinse the soaked cashews and put them in the blender with the lemon juice, nutritional yeast & salt and blend. Add dollops of the cheeze onto the crust (you will have some leftover).
We served us up with some roasted veggies.
Makes me rethink my boring old pizza schedule haha ;p
What is your favourite kind of pizza?
