Vegan Beetroot Pizza with Vegan Almond Feta Recipe

This vegan beetroot pizza crust is thin and crumbly on the edges, and resembles a pie crust in both taste and texture. It goes amazingly well together with the creamy tomato sauce, marinated beetroot and almond feta.

The creamy tomato sauce on top of this pizza is no ordinary tomato sauce. It’s a blend of cashew cream with tomato purée and some spices, which gives this pizza so much depth of flavour!

Preparations, tomato cashew sauce:

  1. Soak ~1 cup of cashews in a jar filled with water (and pinch of salt) for 3-4 hours.
  2. After soaking, drain and rinse well. Blend together with ⅓ cup water to form a silky smooth cream. Add more water if needed to get the blender rolling (and for desired creamy consistency).
  3. Pour ½ cup of cashew cream into a bowl and combine well with all tomato sauce ingredients.

  4. Keep the dough ball ~30 min in a bowl (covered with a cloth or plastic wrap).
  5. Preheat oven to 200C/390F.
  6. Knead the dough for a few times and start flattening it (with hands) to form a round pizza shape.
  7. Use a rolling pin to get it evenly spread and thin.
  8. Bake in the oven on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper for ~5 minutes.
  9. Remove from the oven and spread tomato cashew sauce on top.
