2 Tbspn + 1 tsp tapioca starch

1 small garlic clove

¾ tsp salt

  1. Methods

  2. Mix all ingredients in a blender until smooth.

  3. Put in a saucepan and whisk continually over medium to high heat until thickened.

  4. Make sure you keep whisking so it doesn’t stick. It takes a few minutes to thicken but when it happens it’s quite quick.

  5. Either use immediately on top of pizza or if using on another day let cool and then put into baking paper and roll up so it forms a log. Store in fridge. It can be sliced into round shaped pieces of cheese and looks pretty fancy when done this way.
