Moxarella Cheese [Vegan]

This is homemade Vegan Moxarella Cheese. It's instant and without any artificial anything. It browns and stretches.

This cheese stays in a "melted" type form until baked, and then it forms a nice crust, like dairy cheese does. It's not intended to be eaten plain (like real dairy fresh mozzarella can). It's also fairly salty to make it stand out in your recipes, if you prefer less salt, please feel free to reduce to 1/2 teaspoon, or less, but the flavor won't be as pronounced.

How to Make Fresh Vegan Moxarella Cheese (and a Bonus Pizza Recipe!)


For the Cheese:

  • 1/4 C. raw cashews (soaked in water for several hours and then drained IF you don’t have a high powered blender)
  • 1 C. hot water
  • 2  T. + 1 t. tapioca starch
  • 1 T. extra virgin olive oil (optional)
  • 1 small garlic clove, minced
  • 3/4  t. sea salt
  • 1 t. fresh lemon juice

For the Dough:

This crust contains gluten, but you can use gluten-free ingredients.

  • 2 C. organic all purpose flour
  • 1 C. organic whole wheat flour
  • 2 1/4 t. active dry yeast (1 packet)
  • 1 cup warm water
  • 2 t. sea salt
  • 1 t. agave
  • 1 T. extra virgin olive oil (optional)

For the pizza sauce

  • one 14 ounce can crushed tomatoes
  • 3 cloves minced garlic
  • 1/2 t. dried thyme
  • 1/2 t. dried oregano
  • 1/2 t. dried basil
  • 1 T. extra virgin olive oil (optional)
  • 1 t. agave
  • sea salt and ground black pepper to taste


To Make the Cheese:

  1. Blend all ingredients together in a high-speed blender until completely smooth, about 1 minute.
  2. Pour into a small saucepan and cook, stirring constantly over medium high heat. After a couple of minutes the mixture will start to look weird, like it’s curdling or separating. This is totally normal, reduce heat to medium and KEEP stirring so you don’t burn the cheese to the bottom of the pot.
  3. Keep cooking and stirring til really thick (about 2-3 more minutes) and the mixture becomes like a cohesive mass of melted dairy cheese and stretches like in the photo below.
  4. Remove from heat and let cool a bit while you assemble the pizzas.

To Make the Dough:

  1. Combine all ingredients and knead for 10 minutes. Cover and let rise in a warm place for 60 minutes until doubled. While the dough is rising, make the pizza sauce and the fresh moxarella cheese.

To Assemble the Pizza:

  1. Saute the garlic in a little vegetable broth or the olive oil in a small saucepan for a minute or two on medium heat. Add all the other ingredients. Reduce heat to low and let simmer while you make the Moxarella Cheese.
  2. Assembly: Your dough should be nearly ready now, so when it hits 60 minutes or is doubled, punch it down and divide it into four pieces. Preheat the oven to 500°. Roll out the dough on a floured surface as thin or thick as you like. We opted for thicker pizzas this round. Spread each pizza with 1/4 of the pizza sauce. Top with fresh tomato slices, dollops of the fresh moxarella cheese and fresh basil leaves like shown in the photo below.
  3.  Bake individual pizzas for 10-12 minutes on a baking sheet until cheese and the crusts are nicely browned. Note: there is a very fine line between nicely browned and burnt here, so please, watch your pizzas carefully. Sprinkle pizzas with a bit of additional chopped fresh basil once out of the oven if desired.

I contacted him and told him my problems and he told me what to do, and i did it and he did a {love spell} for me. 28 hours later, my husband came to me and apologized for the wrongs he did and promise never to do it again.

I was so depressed when my ex left me for another woman. it made me felt like i was not relevant and my heart and love life was seriously destroyed. i could not concentrate in anything i was doing. i went online and searched for help but could not find any genuine spell caster until i went to Ocala Florida to visit my aunt to ease the depression and loneliness. when i got to Florida, i explained to my aunt who then felt pity for me and told me the secret she have not told anyone about the success in her marriage with her man. she then took me to the temple of powerful Dr. Ugo Wonders whom i met and explained my problems to. he promised to help me because of my aunt. i trusted his words and provided him with the materials needed to help me get my ex back and to my greatest surprise, after 48 hours of casting the spell, my Ex cam back on his knees begging for me to forgive him. i was shocked and surprised at the magic. we are happily married now and everything is working fine with us.I promised Dr. Ugo that i will never keep this a secret because he brought back my life and my world and that i will hare my testimony to the general public.
My advice goes to any one out there who is emotionally depressed or having any similar relationship problem, to contact Dr. Ugo wonders the ultimate spell caster via his direct email [email protected] or call his temple line on +1 386-336-9876 he is the best in Florida....

I found tapioca starch at an Asian grocery

How well and how long does this store in the fridge? Does it need to be thinned out after storage?

Can I sub tapioca starch with instant mash potato flakes? They make the most sense to me \'cause I can\'t find tapioca starch anywhere.

This cheese is so god damn good!!! I discovered it recently and I\'ve made it several times since. I\'ve used in for grilled cheese, burritos, and even just a gooey cheesy spread on a sandwich. Plus, it\'s super easy to make! I\'ve added different ingredients to change the flavor slightly. For a sharper cheddar like flavor, I added kala namak and nooch. I could seriously eat this by the spoonful.

I did the moxarella and it was awesome! Not really good to eat it as it is, but perfect for pizza or any other dishes we need melted mozzarella consistence cheese! Thank you very much :-*

Being that this whole recipe takes a while to make, would it be safe to keep the ready made and arranged pizza in the fridge overnight before cooking the next day?

There are only ingredients for the dough and the pizza sauce. Can anyone else see the moxarella cheese ingredients?

There are three groups of ingredients. The first is for the cheese, the second is for the dough and the third is for the pizza sauce. Seeing as this is a recipe specifically for the cheese, those come first, the rest is a suggestion to have with the cheese.

Hello, I am not familiar with the short-cuts. I guess 1 C. means 1 cup. What means 1 T. & 1 t.?

Thanks in advance!

16 Jul 2016

C = Cup
T = Tablespoon
t = teaspoon
