You have got to try this vegan mozzarella spread. The taste and consistency are right on the money. Most store-bought mozzarella is too firm and doesn’t melt that well, in my opinion. This recipe for vegan mozzarella has a sauce-like consistency and firms up when cooked. I love it!
You can use this vegan mozzarella for several different recipes, but I especially love it on pizza. I made my favorite pizza dough recipe and I had leftover tomato basil sauce that I spread on top of the dough. I baked the crust with tomato sauce on it in a 450°F oven until the crust was just about done. Then I topped it off with the mozzarella spread and a simple basil pesto sauce and placed it back in the oven for 2 more minutes. Everyone went crazy over it… Give it a try!
