Because I am lactose intolerant I very rarely eat pizza...until now! I recently got the most amazing vegan cookbook, and am loving all of the recipes! Although this pizza was delicious, it does take a little bit of work. The pizza dough was made from scratch, I roasted the garlic as well, and the macadamia ricotta is also from scratch which does take a little bit of time. I found that making the dough and ricotta in advance made the recipe much easier! Let me know what you think! 


Roasted Garlic White Sauce 
  • 1/2 cup non-dairy milk 
  • 1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar 
  • water
  • 1/2 small head cauliflower, cut into florets
  • 1 head roasted garlic 
  • 1/4 cup cashews, soaked in water at least 1 hour, water discarded
  • 1 Tablespoon lemon juice 
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon white miso 
  • 1 teaspoon nutritional yeast 
  • Salt and black pepper to taste  

  1. Lightly dust a pizza pan or baking sheet with cornmeal; set aside. Pre-heat the oven to 475 degrees F. 
  2. Mix the non-dairy milk with the vinegar in a cup and set aside for at least 5 minutes. 
  3. Meanwhile, steam the cauliflower florets for about 10 minutes, until they are easily pierced with a fork. Remove and let cool for a few minutes. 
  4. Gently squeeze each clove of garlic from its skin into a food processor. Add the steamed cauliflower, milk mixture, cashews, lemon juice, miso, nutritional yeast, salt, and pepper. Process until smooth. 
  5. Heat a large frying pan over medium heat. Add the spinach and water. Saute until the spinach has just begun to wilt. Remove from the heat. 
  6. Roll out the pizza dough on a floured surface to the desired size, making sure the dough is at least 1/4 inch thick. Spread the spinach on top, leaving a 1/2 inch crust around the perimeter. Spoon the white sauce on top of the spinach. Crumble the Macadamia Ricotta on top of the sauce. 
  7. Transfer the pizza onto the prepared pan, Bake for 10-12 minutes, until the crust has risen and is lightly golden. Slice and serve hot!
