Easy Roasted Tomato Pizza with Basil Cashew Cheeze & 2012 VegNews Awards

Tortilla Pizza with Basil Cashew Cheese-3638

Clearly, I’m trying to consume as many tomatoes as I can this month. If there’s a record out there somewhere, I could break it. As much as I like to leave the oven off in August, I’m much more of a roasted tomato kinda girl when it comes down to it. Raw in-season tomatoes are pretty darn good, but roasted tomatoes are the real deal. I’ve already made a double batch of my Roasted Tomato Pesto and have plans to freeze a batch or two of my Creamy Roasted Tomato Coconut Soup. There could be more…

Tortilla Pizza with Basil Cashew Cheese-3639

I made this pizza last week when a major, all-consuming pizza craving hit, only I wanted nothing to do with a regular yeast pizza dough. I rarely have the desire to make bread or dough from scratch unless it’s cold out. I contemplated buying pre-made pizza dough from a local grocery store, but the tortillas in the cupboard won the battle over my laziness.

I roasted a couple pounds of tomatoes and then ate a bunch right off the pan.

Made a creamy Basil Cashew Cheeze and ate some straight out of the processor.

Popped the pizzas in the oven then ate one right off the pan.

You’ll see what I mean below.

Roasted Tomato Tortilla Pizza with Basil Cashew Cheeze

Print, Email, or Text this recipe

roasted tomatoes:

  • 0.90 kg/2 lb tomatoes (I used mixed cherry tomatoes)
  • 1/2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • fine grain sea salt & pepper

 

for the basil cashew cheeze (yield: 1-1.25 cups)

  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 1 cup loosely packed fresh basil
  • 1/4 cup roasted tomatoes
  • 1 cup raw cashews, soaked in water for at least 1 hour
  • 2 tbsp fresh lemon juice
  • 3 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 tbsp water
  • 1 tbsp nutritional yeast
  • 1/4 tsp fine grain sea salt, or to taste

 

Crust:

  • Large tortillas

 

1. Place 1 cup raw cashews in a bowl of water and soak for at least 1 hour. Rinse and drain before use. Preheat the oven to 375F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Chop tomatoes and place in a bowl and mix with olive oil, vinegar, and season with salt and pepper. Spread out on prepared pan and roast for about 30 minutes or so. Remove and reduce heat to 350F.

2. For the sauce: In a food processor drop in garlic cloves and mince. Now drop in the basil followed by the roasted tomatoes and drained and rinsed cashews. Stop to scrape down the side of the bowl. Now add in the rest of the ingredients and blend until super smooth. Season with fine grain sea salt to taste. Add more oil or lemon juice if preferred.

3. Place your desired amount of tortillas on baking sheet. Spread sauce on each tortilla followed by a generous amount of roasted tomatoes. Bake in the oven for 13-15 minutes (watch closely) at 350F or until crisp and golden. Serve immediately. Store leftover sauce in an air-tight container in the fridge. It should keep for a week or longer.

Oooh congrats on the nomination Ange! You’ve got my vote for sure. And on the tomato front… I am with you!! At the Vancouver Whole Foods they had the tiniest orange, yellow, red, and purple tomatoes on the salad bar and I ate them like grapes!!! So cute. This pizza sounds awesome!

I totally agree that roasted tomatoes are the way to go….the cooler nights make it a little more bearable for turning on the oven for dinner. This looks fantastic, but I have to say my all-time fave tomato recipe has to be your scalloped tomatoes — I LOVE that recipe!!!!

I have cashew butter in the cabinet right now (just cashews. . . but they weren’t soaked). Could I use that for the sauce, do you think?

Reply

23 Angela (Oh She Glows) August 22, 2012

That’s a great question! I’m not sure as I haven’t tried it before. I would assume you could but you probably wouldnt need to use much. Also, do you think the processor would still blend it all up? I find without much liquid or solid foods, mine has trouble.

Yummy! I will have to try this on a brown rice tortilla. As for eating so many tomatoes, I’m right there with you. I’ve been eating them for every meal, they are overflowing in the garden right now. Definitely not something to complain about though, just have to get creative with how to preserve/store them for when the anemic looking store tomatoes are our only option..

Hey Angie!! I just discovered a really delicious gluten-free “pizza” crust that I would love to share with you – do you have an e-mail address or similar?? It isn’t really a “recipe”, in that I don’t have exact measurements (hence the reason why I’m not just writing it out here), but it’s great and simple, involving potatoes and quinoa.

63 Jaime August 21, 2012

Ang, can you suggest another nut to use instead of cashews to make the cheese sauce or any cream sauce? I am being treated for an allergy to them right now (darn molds!), but need to stay away in the meantime.

Reply

64 Marissa August 21, 2012

I don’t know if you can have sunflower seeds, but they make a great cashew substitute in my experience. I have mold sensitivities, too. Good luck with your treatment. Hope you find some relief!

Thank you for the tip, Marissa! I thought maybe macademia nuts too?? But the sunflower seeds are much cheaper.

Hi Angela, I’ve been following your blogs for several months and have been exclusively vegan now for 9 weeks (started after my 2nd baby was 4 weeks old). This was amazing!!! I love pizza and this totally did it for me.

Was wondering, while there is an abundance of fresh basil and tomatoes do you think this sauce would freeze and defrost ok for later use? It has a hummus or cream cheese like consistency so I’d think it would but just curious on your thoughts.

Thank you for your amazing recipes!

Reply

Totally voted you up in the competition girl! Hope you win!

Question – I’ve had friends tell me you can make pesto and freeze it in little ice cube trays for later use, but leave the cheese out when you freeze. Do you think you could make this and freeze, since it’s cheeseless? Or would something happen to the nooch?

Thanks!

Reply

101 Maddie August 29, 2012

I just made these for dinner, though I used grille flat bread. And it’s so hot here, that I chilled the cashew cheeze and roasted tomatoes and ate it cold. Then I stole your idea for spiralizing zucchini without a spiralizer and tossed that in the cashew cheeze too. So good!

Every Sunday night we have family pizza and movie night, I make the pizzas and I’m the only vegan, I have to make those meat-lovers what they want, so I always crumble and have cheese on top of my otherwise pizza….until today…I’ve been asking the universe to help me out on this one, pizza is not pizza unless it has something creamy happening. I’m going to add caramelised onions to your recipe as well. Thank you.

Any recommendations for a variation on the toppings?? So excited to try the basil cashew cheese sauce! But too many tomatoes are a bit acidic for me, what else would you suggest goes well with that sauce?? Any suggestions welcome, thanks!!

This pizza is absolutely delicious! Thank you so much for sharing such an amazing recipe. I often have cravings for pizza and I am so ecstatic to find a vegan recipe that tastes better than real pizza actually does! =)

By the way, I adore your blog and will admit that almost all of the vegan recipes I have made have been from here. Thank you for providing such a wonderful resource.

I made the basil cashew cheeze and it was AMAZING! I could hardly stop eating it straight out of the blender lol the only change I made was subbing fresh tomatoes for roasted ones, and bottled lemon juice for the fresh; and I added a couple tablespoons of old pesto I needed to use up. I used it on a veggie pizza instead of tomato sauce and it was sooooo good! I will definitely be making it again. :)

Waiting for this to pop out of the oven. It was pretty fun to make. I love cashews, garlic and tomatoes so this combo should be fabulous. Just moved into a new place so I haven’t become an expertise with my oven and I think it cooks slower, I have to cook it longer than 15 minutes to make it crispy!

Hi. Why is it called ‘cheeze’ instead of ‘cheese’? Thanks.

Ooh I love when I find recipes that I already have all the ingredients for on hand! How many tortilla pizzas will the roasted tomatoes and cashew cheeze cover? Thanks, Angela.

I used this recipe for some company and what a hit! I made my own whole wheat pizza crust and added caramelized onions. This was my first time with soaked cashews and basil in place of cheese and it won’t be my last. So scrumptious. Added a picture on my Facebook page and noted this web site.
