Pumpkin pizza with cashew cream

With a baby and a three year old, we have been cooking pretty simple meals lately. This pizza is probably the most fancy thing I've cooked for a while. 

Sylvia asked me to make pizza and I needed to use up some pumpkin, so this pizza was born. In a flash of creativity, I decided to top it with cashew cream.

It was so delicious, I thought I'd share it.

It's so simple that this is hardly a recipe, more like a list of steps:
  1. I made this pizza base
  2. I roasted some chopped pumpkin in the oven with olive oil, salt and garlic
  3. I made a batch of classic cashew cream
  4. I rolled out the pizza dough (recipe makes two pizzas), spread on some homemade tomato sauce (or you could use bought pasta/pizza sauce) and put the pumpkin on. I baked them at around 220C for around 20-30 minutes until crust was light brown
  5. I drizzled the cashew cream over the cooked pizzas 
Admire (and eat) your gourmet pizza!



  1. I love gourmet pizzas like this. They are always so unexpected, but generally really delicious!

    1. So true Theresa... and they make you feel fancy :)

  2. I think you are doing pretty well for someone with a baby and a three year old! I suspect a lot of mothers would be calling in pizza :P Your family is lucky that you aren't in that category - this looks wonderful.

    1. Thanks Kari! Sometimes I wish I could order pizza, but not many good vegan options for that :)
