Ingredients

Red Low Sodium Pizza Sauce

  • 1 15 oz Can Tomato Sauce No Salt Added
  • 2 tbsp Balsamic Vinegar No Color Added
  • 2 tbsp Nutritional Yeast
  • 1 tbsp Penzeys Tuscan Sunset Or Other Italian Seasoning Blend
  • 2 tbsp Basil Fresh, chop fine
  • 1 tsp Garlic Powder

White Sauce

  • 1 Cup Cashews Raw
  • 4 Cloves Garlic Fresh, Minced
  • 1 Lemon Juiced
  • Water

Pizza Crust

  • 12 Food For Life Sprouted Grain Tortilla

Toppings

  • 12 Roma Tomatoes Sliced Thin, Or toppings of your choice.
  • 1/2 Cup Basil Fresh, Chopped Fine

Instructions

  • Add the red sauce ingredients, except the nutritional yeast, to a small pan bring to simmer on low. Cook 5-8 minutes. Remove from heat and add nutritional yeast. This sauce has a concentrated flavor. Only a thin layer is necessary on your pizza.
  • Add cashews to a small pan, cover with water and bring to boil. Reduce heat to simmer and cook for 3 minutes.
  • Strain water from cashews. Add cashews to high speed blender and add one and one half cups of water. Blend on high speed until it's smooth and creamy. Pour through a fine strainer, lined with cheese cloth, into a small bowl. (This is an optional step to catch any sediment.)
  • Lift the cheesecloth by the corners to help the cashew milk strain.
  • Mince the garlic and add to a saute pan. Lightly brown the garlic on low to medium heat, stirring often. (Be careful not to burn.) Add blended cashew milk to the pan. Gently simmer for 2-3 minutes. Add the juice of one lemon. Stir to incorporate. Remove from heat.
  • Toast the tortillas on both sides in your oven or toaster oven. Watch carefully so they don't burn. I used my broiler setting and turn frequently to keep them as flat a possible. And- I kept my eyes on them as they will burn easily under the broiler. Turn off broiler.
  • Spread a small amount of either sauce on the tortilla. Add sliced and diced toppings of your choice to the pizza and place it on the rack in the still-hot oven for 1-2 minutes. Just long enough to heat the tortilla and sauce, but not cook the tomatoes or basil.
  • Drizzle the warm white sauce and enjoy!
