Dairy Free Vegan


For the Dough:

  • 1 cup warm water
  • 2 tablespoons instant yeast
  • 1 tablespoon raw sugar
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 cup semolina flour
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil

For the Cheese:

  • Silken tofu
  • Cashews
  • Garlic
  • Salt

  • Olive oil

For the Butternut Squash Layer:

  • 1 butternut squash

For the Topping:

  • Fresh green chard
  • Sliced red peppers
  • Cherry tomatoes
  • Minced white onion
  • Sliced Kalamata olives

To Make the Dough:

To Make the Butternut Squash Layer:

  1. Cut the squash in half, set it in an inch of water in a roasting pan, and set the oven for 250°F.

  3. Process with the rest of the layer ingredients until smooth.

  1. Spread the cheese mix on the dough. Then, add the squash.
  2. Top with toppings of your choice.
