Pizza soothes the soul. And when you top it with roasted, creamy, caramelized garlic cloves, you’ll forget that cheese is even a thing. Recipe and Image: Sherrie Castellano.



  • 16 garlic clove
  • 1 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/4 cup Oil Cured Dry Black Olives
  • 1/4 cup Red Onion
  • 1 10" Gluten-Free Par-Baked Pizza Crust
  • 1 cup pizza sauce
  • 1/2 cup Raw Cashews
  • 2 rounded tbsp Nutritional yeast
  • 1/4 tsp Garlic Powder
  • 1/2 tsp Salt
  • 1/2 tsp olive oil
  • 1 tbsp Fresh Oregano


1 Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
2 Prepare your garlic by removing most of its layers of skin and by chopping off the tops, but keep the bulb intact. Place the bulbs in a square of parchment, drizzle with a little olive oil and ball them up. Bake for 30 to 40 minutes in a dish or muffin tin or until super soft. Allow them to cool a bit, and each clove will pop right out of its shell.
3 Spread a thin layer of sauce over your crusts, smash on the garlic cloves and then top it with the olives and onions. Cook your crust according to package directions.
4 Whole the pizza is baking, make the oregano parm by combining cashews, yeast, garlic powder, salt, olive oil and oregano in a food processor and pulse into a fine, desirable texture.
5 Pull the pizza out and sprinkle generously with the vegan parm. Cut and serve hot.
