Game changer. That’s what this roasted garlic coconut milk sauce (read: the new vegan cheese) is. I was perfectly content having a pizza of dough, pizza sauce and veggies (no cheese). This cheese sauce though, is a game changer. It made what can sometimes be a boring or dry pizza into that gooey creamy pizza we love.
This recipe is from my friend, Christine, at Colorado Vegan. It’s extra fun to share this because I just realized when we met up (a year ago?) in Denver, we went out for vegan pizza! All things pizza!
I used a sourdough crust from our local IGA that happened to be vegan with a short ingredient list.
The ingredient that truly transforms regular old coconut milk into an almost alfredo like sauce is garlic, specifically roasted garlic. In the first iteration of this pizza I roasted the garlic the night before but later also used fresh garlic – both ways are delicious depending on the flavor or timing you’re going for.
I added a few extra ingredients from stuff we had on hand, like jalapeños and artichoke hearts.
Then you just load it up and bake.
This cheese sets very well and turns a little brown along the edges.
I used coconut milk from a can and got about 3-4 pizzas out of it. That’s right we had pizza everyday over the weekend. It was pretty much heaven.
So….go make this. Seriously.
What toppings would you put on your coconut cheese pizza?!
