Vegans or people sensitive to gluten needn't miss out on pizza. Try my gluten-free, plant-based recipe for a pizza and be amazed by its beauty and flavors. Better than the real Italian classic if you ask my hubby and me!

Yesterday was pizza and movie night. Well, actually series night. Nothing better to start our weekend, right? It's our 2 days off and we have planned absolutely nothing. Pure bliss.

Tomorrow we are checking out a new plant-based cafe that opened and it looks and sounds amazing. Already looking forward to their fermented ice cream. Never had anything like it. I am so happy Kampot finally has a plant-based cafe. Unfortunately, it is only open from 9 am to 2 pm so I haven't had the time yet to go there and try their amazing food.

What are you guys up to?

VEGAN PIZZA WITH CHICKPEA & TURMERIC CRUST AND CASHEW CHEESE 🍕

INGREDIENTS (makes 1 big pizza or 2 small ones)


For the tomato sauce


I had some homemade veggie tomato sauce left in the freezer, so I used that. Any tomato or marinara sauce will do the trick. Just do not go for a can. Go fresh. Make a big batch and freeze for later.

For the chickpea flour crust


1 cup chickpea flour
1/2 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
1/2 tsp turmeric powder
1/3 cup water
Sea salt and black pepper to taste

For the cashew cheese


1 cup cashew nuts, soaked for at least 1 hour (overnight is best)
3 tbsp nutritional yeast
1/2 small lime, juice only
Sea salt, black pepper, onion powder, garlic powder to taste
A splash of olive oil, coconut oil, and water

Toppings


Sliced bell pepper
Shredded red cabbage
Chopped broccoli
Sliced onion
Black pepper to taste
Dried oregano to taste

Feel free to you your fav veggies and herbs to make your own variation of this vegan delight.

DIRECTIONS


  1. Preheat the oven to 180C (355F).
  2. In a bowl, mix chickpea flour, water, olive oil, salt, pepper, and turmeric. Stir with a fork until you get a smooth mixture. Unlike a regular pizza dough, the uncooked chickpea crust will be a rather liquid, yet slightly firm, pourable mixture. Add more water if to dry or more chickpea flour if to wet.
  3. With a spatula or spoon, spread the mixture evenly on baking paper or silicone baking mat in a 1/2 cm to 1cm (1/4 to 1/2 inch) thick layer. Sprinkle a bit of olive oil on the baking paper or silicone mat before you spread on the dough to avoid it to stick to the paper or mat.
  4. Bake the chickpea crust into for about 15 minutes or until the edges are very lightly golden. Do not overbake!
  5. Meanwhile, blend all ingredients for the cashew cheese in a blender and set aside.
  6. Remove the crust from the oven. Add the homemade tomato sauce on top in an even layer and add the cashew cheese on top. Top with your favorite veggies and put the pizza back into the oven. Bake for 10 to 15 minutes more. Or until the veggies are cooked and slightly browned.

This recipe is very easy to make. This is also a good recipe for vegetable lovers and of course pizza lovers.

I'll try your recipe. thanks for sharing

Enjoy ;) Glad you like this recipe. Have a great day.

this looks great and I have all the ingredients, love that the crust is just chickpea flour I usually only use it for omelet or as a batter, very excited about this xx

Enjoy. We got addicted to the chickpea crust in no time lol. A while ago I use it to make a quiche too. So Good. Have a lovely day.

Great recipe. I am not vegan, but would still try this one and just swap out some of the toppings to better suit my taste. Love the photos and step by step.

No need to be vegan to enjoy this lovely treat. Have a great day.

It looks delicious. the ingredients are very healthy, although the cabbage gives me gas. but I definitely have to try to prepare it at home. luckily I have part of the ingredients .. thank you for sharing the recipe.

You can add any other topping you like instead of cabbage. Have a great day and thanks for stopping by.

I really want to try some cashew cheese every time I hear about it. I do not have the resources to make it now, but it is on my list to look out for.

Your pizza looks nothing like pizza - but it sure looks delicious!

Thanks. I hope you get to make it one day. It is so good. Thanks for taking the time to comment.

You're welcome. I hope to have a good source for the cashews soon. I'm looking in every store I get to now :)

Good luck! If you have a reliable postal service, you can look for them online too. Amazon has a few very good brands.

I'm not sure how reliable my post is. I will ask others here. Thank you so much for the idea :)

Looks tasty, thanks for the detailed recipe, will save that for a special occation!

Thanks. I hope you love it as much as we did. Thanks for stopping by.

Looks so fresh, healthy and nutritious, Amy! Love it!

I absolutely adore cashew cheese. I make it at least once a week as everyone around me loves it and all my friends are asking about it :)

Unfortunately I'm not very good with chickpea flour. It doesn't do me good and gives me stomach cramps.. but lucky me I have no issues with gluten so I like to indulge myself in 'normal' pizza dough :)

Your toppings are delish!

Thank you for this delicious and simple recipe!

Ohh that's too bad. We love anything that's chickpeas. Have you ever tried buckwheat flour to make pizza dough? Another favorite of mine. Too bad it is so hard to find here in Cambodia or I would use it more often. Take care xxx

I haven't seen buckwheat flour here.. well, I have never looked for it :) Will check it out! Thank you for the tip!

I was thinking of onions, broccoli, peppers and more tomato. I love tomato and some corn. I would put mushrooms, but at the moment I do not have any.

Ha mushrooms. Love them but my hubby hates them so I don't eat them very often. Have a great day.

This really looks good! Thanks for sharing @Amy-goodrich!
