Vegan Mushroom Truffle Pizza
As with every item on our menu, this vegan mushroom truffle pizza starts with the basics of what draws people all over the world to this classic comfort food: warm, savory flavors and a wholesomely filling base.
Our chefs start by searing wild mushrooms, reducing the water that would otherwise make for a soggy, limp crust. From here, they sprinkle caramelized cipollini onions across the surface, adding an element of slight sweetness to offset the otherwise earthy flavors.
A dash of fresh rosemary and red chili brings an intensity that perfectly counters the creamy, mild texture of our vegan crema and lemon “ricotta.” Finally, a drizzle of rich, decadent truffle oil helps meld the flavors together, adding a touch of elegance to every comforting bite.
A quick trip into our authentic brick oven toasts the crust to perfection, adding that smokey flavor and crisp texture that keeps diners all over the city clamoring for more.

- 2 cups of mixed mushrooms
3 cloves of fresh garlic, minced
3 cloves of roasted garlic
1 teaspoon of thyme leaves
1 cup of vegan mozzarella
- 1 teaspoon of nutritional yeast flakes
2 teaspoons of olive oil
1 1/3 cups of raw cashews
3 teaspoons of lemon juice
Salt and pepper (to taste)
- To start this recipe, prepare your garlic cream sauce. Boil your cashews in a small pot for roughly fifteen minutes, until they have cooked through and had an opportunity to soak up some excess water. Place these cashews in a blender with your lemon juice, roasted garlic, salt, and pepper. Blend until creamy and thoroughly combined.
- Spread this cream sauce over your pizza crust. Sprinkle lightly with nutritional yeast flakes for a burst of nutrients and an additional “cheesy” flavor.
- In a saute pan, sear your mushrooms on medium-high heat. Reduce the heat to low and cook until they are softened. If necessary, use a separate towel to squeeze out any excess water that might otherwise make your pizza crust soggy.
- Construct your pizza. Sprinkle your minced garlic, mushrooms, and vegan mozzarella over the surface of the crust, adjusting the content to meet your personal preferences.
- Cook your pizza at 425 degrees until the cheese is fully melted, and the crust is golden brown.
