Top Tips for Perfectly Melting Dairy-Free Cheese

Say goodbye to firm shreds and hello to the satisfaction of a perfectly melted pizza that rivals the classics. With a bit of know-how and experimentation, your dairy-free pizza will become a culinary masterpiece!

1. Avoid Fan Baking:

One of the most common problems when it comes to making dairy-free pizzas is the use of a convection or fan oven. This only results in firm shreds that deny the gooey centre we crave. If this happens, don’t worry – your pizza still offers the same texture and taste. But let’s aim for perfection!

2. Switch to Grill for Melting Magic:

Switch the oven dial to grill and position your pizza directly under the element at high heat. Allow approximately 5-10 minutes of cooking. This will perfectly melt your dairy-free cheese turning your pizza into a masterpiece of bubbling, golden perfection.

3. Moderation is Key:

Because many dairy-free cheeses don’t melt quite the same as traditional cheeses, it is easy to overload the pizza in an effort to replicate the same look. However, resist the temptation to overload your pizza with dairy-free cheese. When melted perfectly, some varieties can become a bit too wet when melted.

4. Blend Shreds with Liquid Cheese:

To get the most out of your dairy-free cheesy pizza, consider combining shreds with dairy-free liquid cheese. This dynamic duo can help achieve that perfect melt, offering the ideal consistency for your pizza.

6. Experiment and Enjoy:

Don’t be afraid to experiment with different melting techniques and cheese combinations! Your pizza journey is a delicious adventure – so, enjoy every melted bite!
