While the dough is rising, prepare the cashew cheese.
Add the cashews, garlic powder and salt into a blender, pour the hot almond milk and blend to get a creamy, thick mixture. Transfer into a bowl and set aside

Check the dough to see if it doubled its volume, then transfer onto a surface lined with parchment paper.
Roll the dough into a 15x12' length oval shape.
Spread the vegan pesto all over the pizza, about 1 inch clean space all-round.
