Cannelini bean cheese for pizzas


This pizza “cheese” came about because i didn’t have any dairy free cheese in the house and i wanted a pizza topping pronto. I’d made the dough from scratch and wanted something special.

In a small processor, i blended the following until smooth. Note that measurements are approximate so please adjust to taste.
1 can cannellini beans, drained
1/8 tsp salt
8 fresh basil leaves
3 tbsp nutritional yeast
3 tbsp olive oil
Water to thinto paste.

So easy and quick! Dollop onto mini pizzas and bake until golden.

We have also used this as a dip. It would be yummy on baked vegetables too.


Delicious cold in lunchboxes.

Enjoy 🙂
