We were super excited when we found Monty’s delicious plant-based products. Monty’s amazing flavors and texture rival any dairy product's and have become our go-to spreads. With cherry season in full bloom, our Executive Chef, Anna Gass, created a summery vegan pizza that’s fresh, colorful and so tasty! 

The mix of peppery arugula, a sweet balsamic drizzle, fresh cherries, and Monty's best-selling Everything Cream Cheese (made from cashews, live cultures, sea salt, onions, garlic, poppy seeds, and sesame seeds) creates a delicious combination of flavors that we can't wait for you to try.

For the Toppings:


Directions for the Pizza Dough: 

  1. Combine the flour, yeast, oil and salt in a food processor. Turn the machine on and add 1 cup of water.
  2. With the machine running slowly add 1/2 cup of water, a little at a time, until the mixture forms a ball and is slightly sticky to the touch.
  3. Turn the dough onto a floured bowl and knead by hand to form a smooth dough ball.
  4. Put the dough in a bowl and cover with plastic wrap; let rise for one hour.

Directions for the Toppings: 

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Once the dough rises, spread pizza dough on a 9” x 13” baking sheet.
  3. Pour Kosterina Organic Everyday Extra Virgin Olive Oil and sprinkle theEverything Bagel seasoning evenly over the dough. 
  4. Using a fork, prick the dough all over to prevent rising and bake for 20-25 minutes, until cooked through and golden brown.
  5. Remove from the oven and allow to cool for 10 minutes.
  6. Spread Monty’s Everything Plant-Based Cream Cheese evenly over the baked pizza crust and evenly cover with arugula, cherries and almonds.
  7. In a small bowl, whisk Kosterina’s Original Extra Virgin Olive Oil & Fig Balsamic Vinegar, salt and pepper until combined and drizzle over the pizza. 
  8. Serve immediately--and enjoy!

Roasting veggies brings out their natural sweetness and preserves their vitamins and nutrients. Grilled halloumi adds rich, salty texture and flavor and sweet honey is the perfect counterpoint, making this delicious salad a seasonal showstopper!
