Hand-Pressed Gluten-Free Pizza Crust

You can use a 10" gluten-free pizza crust with a sourdough starter from Schar Bakery or click here to learn how to make your crust from scratch that's so easy even the kiddos can help.


We make this plant-mozzarella in the blender with silken tofu. It grates, it shreds, it melts and tastes like cow mozzarella.

Mint Pesto

This Mint Pesto is easy to make with lots of fresh mint for a beautiful unconventional pesto that is amazing as the base sauce for this delicious pie.

Potato Confit

These are so easy to make and yummy on their own or on this Mint Pesto Pizza or One Love Salad or about a dozen other recipes. We put everything in a deep sauce pan and let it simmer till our baby red potatoes are nice and soft. Mmmm...

Lavender "Goat" Cheese"

This easy to make creamy plant-cheese is made with cashews, tofu, fresh lavender flowers and miso making the perfect addition to pizzas, salads, sandwiches and pastas

Habanero Agave Syrup

We love this easy to make spicy sweet sauce drizzled on pizzas, pastas, sandwiches, salads and more. Just add the ingredients to a bottle and shake.
