This creamy gluten-free and vegan mushroom pizza will wow your senses and is perfect to share on a cold winter night.

Caramelized onions

2/3 of a cup of chopped onions
1 1/2 tbsp of avocado oil
1 tsp of coconut sugar
a pinch of salt


Using a skillet on medium heat, add oil. Then add chopped onions, sugar and salt. Cook onions until golden brown. Set aside.

Roasted Shiitake Mushrooms

1 1/2 cup chopped mushrooms (Shiitake)
1 tsp of garlic granules or 4 minced garlic cloves
1 tsp of smoked paprika
2 tsp of cumin
1 tbsp of apple cider vinegar
1 tsp of maple syrup (optional)
1 tbsp of lemon juice
1 tbsp of avocado oil
pinch of salt and pepper


Add all ingredients to a bowl and let it sit for 10-20 min. Spread onto a baking sheet and bake in the oven for 30 min at 375 F.


1 large handful of baby chard or greens of choice
2 tsp of avocado oil
1 tbsp of lemon juice
1 tsp of lemon zest
pinch of salt


Add everything in a bowl and massage all together.

Creamy cashew sauce

2/3 of cup soaked cashews
2-3 tbsp of lemon juice (depends on how sour you want it)
1/4 of a cup of water
1 tbsp of dried oregano
1 tsp of truffle oil
1 tbsp of arrowroot powder
2 tsp of apple cider vinegar
1 tsp of black pepper


Blend all ingredients using a high-speed blender. Blend until completely emulsified. The sauce has to be warm from the blending. If it’s not warm and watery, cook down for 10 min or so until desired consistency. Letting this sauce sit for 24 hours gives the best-spreading consistency.

Pizza crust

1 cup warm water
1 tbsp of honey or sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons instant yeast
1 1/4 cups Gluten Free All Purpose Flour + 1/4 cup almond flour
1 teaspoon baking power
3/4 teaspoon salt
1 tbsp psyllium husk powder
2 tbsp olive oil


Combine the warm water, honey (or sugar), and yeast in a glass measuring cup. Whisk to combine.

While the yeast is proofing for 3-4 minutes, combine the flour, baking powder, salt, and psyllium husk powder in the bowl of a stand mixer.

With the mixer running on low, slowly add the yeast mixture and oil. Increase the speed to medium-high and beat for 3-4 minutes.

Using an oiled spatula, press the dough off the sides into a ball. Cover and let rise for 30 minutes.

Preheat the oven to 425F. Oil a 12-inch round pizza pan. Using oiled or wet hands, press the dough into the pan. The dough will shrink slightly as it bakes, so press the dough as thin as you can to cover the pan. Let rise for another 10 minutes.

Bake for 15-20 minutes. Remove from the oven and spread the sauce. Top it with your onions, mushrooms, greens, and bake for another 10 minutes or so. Totally depends on how crispy you want the crust. At the end add some lemon zest and cut the pizza. Enjoy!
