Misha’s vegan cheese pizza recipe to celebrate National Cheese Pizza Day

Yvonne O'Halloran

National Cheese Pizza Day was on September 5th, so it’s seems a good time to share a delicious vegan cheese pizza recipe using Misha’s dairy-free smoked cheddar spreadable cheese.

This delicious recipe was conceptualized by Misha’s co-founder Ian Martin, a certified raw vegan living foods chef who has spent years perfecting and innovating the Misha’s Cheese brand.  His vegan cheese pizza can’t be toppedcrust me, you’ve got to try it!

If you aren’t familiar, Misha’s isn’t just an “alternative” to dairy but rather real cheese.  Misha’s cheeses are made the same way all cheeses are made, just without an animal source. Misha’s uses a cashew and almond milk base blended with various locally sourced fresh herbs, veggies and spices without unhealthy ingredients like vegetable oil, soy, fillers, starches or nutritional yeast.

Here is the recipe:

Ingredients (makes enough for two cheese pizzas)

Pizza/Sauce

  • 3/4c Tomato purée
  • 1/2Tbs Italian seasoning
  • 1/2Tbs dried Oregano
  • 150 g of Misha smoked cheddar
  • 1/4c olive oil
  • 1tsp salt
  • 1tbs minced garlic

Crust

  • 155g of 00 flour (1c &2Tbs)
  • 155g of all purpose flour
  • 1t salt
  • 3/4t active dry yeast
  • 1t olive oil

Instructions

Pizza

  • Combine flour and salt in a mixing bowl. Stir together 200g of lukewarm water, yeast, olive oil, and stir into the flour mixture. Knead with hands and let sit for 15 minutes.
  • Cut into 2 equal pieces and shape into a ball. Place on a heavily floured surface, cover with a damp cloth, and let it rest for 3 to 4 hours.
  • When ready, shape and stretch each ball into desired pizza shape on a heavily floured surface.

Sauce

  • While preheating the oven at 450 degrees, mix tomato purée, herbs, salt, minced garlic together and spread evenly across the crust.
  • In a separate bowl, mix the smoked cheddar and olive oil together until thoroughly combined. Then dollop in desired amount across the crust. Place on a very well-floured surface (to avoid crust sticking) and bake for 15-20min.
  • Garnish with your choice of fresh herbs, slice and serve.
