I posted this the other day with a recipe for Sausage pizza.
I've been addicted to this since I first tried it.....BFN....Cindy
Melty Nutritional Yeast Cheese (for pizza or lasagna) from a great
cookbook by Joanne Stepaniak called The Nutritional Yeast Cookbook.
Mix the dry ingredients in a saucepan.
- 1/2 cup nutritional yeast flakes
- 1/4 cup cornstarch
- 2 tablespoons flour (I use whole wheat, it adds a nicer flavor)
- 1 teas salt (yes, use the whole amount, it needs it)
- 1/2 teas. garlic powder
- 2 cups water
- 1 teas mustard (yellow mustard like Frenches, I wouldn't use
- 1/2 cup vegetable oil (I use about 1/3 less & it comes out great
but try the whole amount on your first try)
Whisk in 1 cup of water & cook over medium heat, whisking constantly
until it thickens & bubbles (it goes really quick, so don't walk away).
Remove from heat & whip in 1/2 cup oil & mustard (I use my Braun
hand mixer for this, it works much better & faster & makes a smoother
Put back on the heat & slowly add the remaining water.
Cook until thickened & bubbly (it will have the consistency of nacho
cheese sauce, which btw this is great for).
Spoon onto the pizza & top with your pizza toppings & broil until
This is slightly more than you need for 1 pizza, cave the rest
for grilled cheese sandwiches or as a dip for veggies or for nachos.
It will solidify as it cools & thin out when heated.
