Scale

Ingredients

Crust:

  • 1 cup Medjool dates, pitted and chopped
  • 1/2 cup raw almonds
  • 1/2 cup rolled oats
  • 2 tbsp raw cacao powder or cocoa powder
  • 1/2 tbsp coconut oil, in solid state + more for greasing the pan
  • 1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • generous pinch of kosher salt
  • 1/2 cup dark chocolate chips

Cashew cream “sauce”:

  • 1 cup raw cashews, soaked for at least 2–4 hours, drained, and rinsed
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 2 tsp freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 2 tbsp agave syrup
  • pinch of salt

Chocolate sauce:

  • 2 tbsp coconut oil, in liquid form
  • 1 tsp agave syrup
  • 2 tbsp cacao powder or cocoa powder
  • 1/4 tsp pure vanilla extract

Topping:

  • 1 1/2 cups sliced strawberries

Instructions

Make the crust:

  1. Lightly grease the bottom and 1 1/2 inches up the sides of a 9-inch springform pan with coconut oil. Set aside.
  2. Combine the dates, almonds, and oats in the bowl of a food processor fitted with the S-blade. Process for 1–2 minutes, until all of the ingredients come together like dough and are similar in size with no large chunks remaining. Add the cacao powder, coconut oil, vanilla extract, and salt, then process to incorporate.
  3. Add the dark chocolate chips to the processor and pulse until the chips are incorporated into the dough, but not chopped.
  4. Transfer the dough to the prepared pan and gently press the crust into it, beginning in the center and working towards the edges. Be mindful to keep the crust even across the bottom, then work the dough about an inch up the side of the pan to form the “crust.” Set aside.

Make the cashew cream sauce:

  1. In a food processor fitted with the S-blade, combine the cashews, water, lemon juice, agave, and salt. Blend until smooth, about 3–5 minutes (depending on your machine).
  2. Pour the blended sauce into the center of the prepared crust and gently spread it towards the edges, leaving a 1-inch border. Cover with plastic wrap and freeze for at least 4 hours or up to overnight.

Make the chocolate sauce:

  1. In a small bowl, whisk together the melted coconut oil, agave, cacao powder, and vanilla. If you have a small squeeze bottle, you can transfer the syrup to the bottle at this point, otherwise you can drizzle the syrup with a spoon later. Set aside in a warm place—don’t refrigerate this mixture or it will solidify!

Top the pizza:

  1. Remove the springform pan from the freezer 10 minutes before you want to start decorating the pizza; allowing the crust to thaw slightly will help it separate from the pan. Remove the pizza from the pan and transfer it to a serving platter. Layer strawberries on the crust, starting at the 12 o’clock position on the outer edge of the cashew cream and working in a circle towards the center, gently overlapping each layer until you have reached the middle. If you have any strawberry slices left, gently tuck them in wherever you see a gap.
  2. Drizzle the strawberries with chocolate sauce, cut the pizza into wedges, and serve immediately. You can also store the pizza in the refrigerator for up to 2 hours until ready to serve.

Notes

Prep time includes 4 hours for freezing the crust and soaking the cashews.

If you don’t have a springform pan, you can make the crust on a sheet pan lined with parchment paper. You just wont be able to build up the edges as much as you can with the help of a springform pan.
