Italian Sausage Pizza with Garlic White Sauce & Caramelized Onion

  • Author: Stephanie Bosch



Garlic White Sauce

  • 1 1/2 cup raw unsalted cashews* (see note)
  • 8 oz filtered water
  • 2 tablespoons nutritional yeast
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp oregano
  • 1 tsp salt

Caramelized Onions

  • 2 medium-size sweet onions, thinly sliced
  • 1 tsp salt
  • water



  1. If you have a Vitamix or other high-powered blender, add all white sauce ingredients and blend well until smooth.  Set aside.
  2. Add sliced onion to a large skill and cook over medium-low heat. Cook for about 5 minutes, stirring frequently. Add salt, continue cooking until softened and browned for about 15 minutes. If the onions begin to stick, add water one tablespoon at a time until they release. Remove onions from the pan and set aside.
  3. In the same pan, add Italian sausage and cook over medium heat until slightly browned about 3-5 minutes. Remove from heat.
  4. Add approximately 1 cup of sauce to each crust, top with onions and Italian sausage. I also added a tablespoon of red pepper flakes to add a little heat.
  5. Bake at 400° for about 12-15 minutes.
  6. Let cool and slice.


**If you do not have a high speed blender, soak your cashews overnight, or boil for 10-15 minutes.
