Easy Vegan Mozzarella (Liquid Cheese)

This liquid vegan pizza mozzarella is the perfect vegan cheese option to make any pizza taste like they were in Italy! Pour this liquid vegan mozzarella over any tomato sauce for that authentic Italian experience. Vegan cheese has never tasted this creamy!

But Why Make A Liquid Vegan Cheese?

I have made it my mission to recreate iconic vegan products on the market to make at home. The new products that come from vegan brands keep impressing me more and more, and while I love trying out new vegan products, I know that some store-bought options aren’t accessible to everyone. Some may not be sold in your area, or are too expensive, and some people would prefer to make vegan cheeses and meats etc at home. That’s where I come in.

Recently, I saw a new product from Myoko’s that is a pourable pizza mozzarella. It is a liquid that is poured over a pizza, and baked until set and slightly browned on the top. It comes in a white plastic milk jug-looking bottle. It’s made from cultured cashews and claims to “melt, bubble and brown”. The product is $8.99 USD for a 16 oz bottle. When I saw this product online, it reminded me of my vegan cheese fondue recipe and I knew I could adapt what I already have to make a dupe for this pourable pizza mozzarella!

What are the best ways to use it? I use it on pizza, lasagna, poured over veggies or in any other way you want gooey liquid vegan cheese!

This is a simple recipe for homemade vegan cheese that can completely change the way you make vegan pizza!

Liquid Vegan Pizza Mozzarella

You will never make your vegan pizza the same ever again after using pourable liquid cheese! It sets on a pizza into a browned, gooey and hot melted cheese consistency. You only need to use about 1 cup per medium-sized pizza and store the rest in the fridge or freezer for easy use anytime. If you’re looking for a pizza cheese pull, and recipe that’s ready only using the blender, this is for you!

Whether you’re hosting a major dairy-free pizza party or making pizza for just yourself, this is an impressive and simple way to change up your pizzas from the store-bought shreds and use something homemade that’s creamy, melty and so good! Anyone who’s vegan or dairy-free will love this as an alternative to cheese on their pizza!

This recipe is so easy to make, just cook down the onions and garlic, then add potato, cashews and rice and boil, then simmer until potatoes are cooked. Once soft, add all ingredients to a blender and blend until nice and smooth. Then just pour over your pizza and cook as normal! You’ll love the meltable and gooey texture and subtle cheesy flavour!

Can I freeze it?

Yes! You can freeze the liquid cheese in individual-use-sized, air-tight containers to thaw and use anytime the pizza craving hits!

Is this gluten-free?

Yes! As always, if you have any allergies or intolerances, please check your own ingredients, but this recipe is gluten-free.

Can I make it ahead of time?

Yes! Make this liquid cheese up to 2 days before you plan to make your pizza, then use or freeze leftovers.

  • Do I add cooked rice or uncooked? Really enjoying this recipe! Mine came out really thick, maybe my potato was too large or I was supposed to add cooked rice instead of raw rice? Been enjoying it as a cream cheese like spread on toast under broiler for a minute really feels like I’m eating a grilled cheese.

    • Add uncooked rice and if you can use arborio (risotto rice) that’s best. Glad you like the recipe!

  • Melanie says:

    I was a real cheese and dairy lover before becoming WFPB almost 2 years ago. I’ve tried LOTS of vegan cheese recipes and have found a few that I think are really good. This one may be at the top of the list!
    The vegan cheeses I like best use coconut milk or a large amount of cashews, which makes them high fat. I have cheese recipes that use potatoes and carrots but they’re never as good as the ones with more fat. I love the combination of ingredients in this recipe (arborio rice!) and think the small amount of cashews used adds just enough fat to make this really tasty.
    I had things I wanted to use up so I was quite adventurous with my pizza. Coconut flake bacon, red peppers, and pineapple tidbits. (Yes, I’m a pineapple on pizza person.) Poured on your cheese and was kinda worried about how all of this would taste together. It was delicious! The best non-dairy pizza I’ve ever made.
    This is definitely a keeper! I didn’t have any sauerkraut water so I just added 2 Tbl of water. Is there a sub for the sauerkraut juice?

    • EdgyVeg says:

      Hey Melanie! thank you for such a positive feedback! Really appreciate you exploring different options to find the one that sticks to you the most. To substitute for sauerkraut juice, you can pretty much use any fermented juice. Dill pickle juice is great, apple cider, white vinegar works too. Let me know what you think!

      • François says:

        Do you think kombucha would work as I substitute? I’m always making kombucha so it would be easy for me to use it. Thank you!

        • EdgyVeg says:

          hey Francois! Are you looking to substitute the apple cider vinegar with kombucha? If so, I don’t think it should be a problem as both actually contain vinegar. However there is a difference between the acidic and bacteria levels that might affect the texture of the cheese, but I would make a smaller batch to try anyways and see how it goes.

  • Jayne says:

    Can the extra I don’t use be frozen? Thanks

  • Great recipe! I followed it loosely using what I had on hand and it still came out tasty and browned up under the broiler. Swaps: Cornstarch for Agar, potato starch for tapioca, Ripple (pea) milk for soy, white miso + an umami seasoning that has various spices including mushroom powder, doubled the kraut and nooch. Tasted very similar to that *other*, store bought vegan liquid mozz.

  • I’m a Newbie and I’d love to get more Edgy Veg!

  • Discovered this because of Tik Tok and now I can’t get enough, I will be making this plenty times over!

  • Really nice vegan cheese sauce for pizza. It came out pretty thick but it was probably because I used cashew milk which can thicken sauces. Will def make again.

  • Amazing !! Doubled the recipe and followed almost exactly (didn’t have bouillon, did cabbage with the kraut not just the brine) really delicious taste and waiting now to taste it on our pizza! Love the use of so many wholesome ingredients and love how easy it was. Will be making this recipe again and again 🙂

  • This is an amazing recipe and I can’t thank you enough!!! I made a veggie pizza with mushrooms, peppers, onions, olives and capers. Didn’t know if your vegan mozzarella would work with toppings, but it was amazing!!!!

    Hi Candace,
    Can the pourable cheese be made a day ahead of time?
