After a long cold winter (and early Spring!), I’m excited to spend as much time as possible outdoors. Even the simplest activities like enjoying a glass of wine are made more enjoyable by being in nature. today I teamed up with Cameron Hughes Wine to share my Vegan Caprese Pizza and tips for backyard entertaining.

Cameron Hughes Wine doesn’t rely on fancy labels or gimmicks because it’s what on the inside that counts….high quality wine at affordable prices. Cameron Hughes Wine is only one of a few Direct-To-Consumer wine brands on the market. They source their wine and sell it directly to the customer, cutting out the middle man and giving you big savings in the process!  It’s how Cameron Hughes Wine is able to offer great deals like a $80 Cabernet for $30!

Backyard pizza parties are one of my favorite ways to entertain. As an added bonus- they’re so easy to throw! All you need are oven ready pizza crusts, fresh veggies, cheese (vegan for me) and a few great bottles of wine. I like to set up a topping station of everyone can add their favorites to their pizza.

Vegan Caprese Pizza is one of my go-to recipes. It’s light, delicious and it makes great use of the fresh basil that’s abundant this time of year! I like to pair my Caprese Pizza with Cameron Hughes Cabernet Sauvignon.

The oven-ready crust makes this pizza a breeze to cook! Blended cashews (combined with nutritional yeast and apple cider vinegar) take the place of mozzarella cheese. This pizza is so tasty, you won’t even miss traditional cheese!
