After a year-plus of curiosity about it, we finally gave homemade vegan "cheese" a try. The recipe we tried claimed to be Pepper Jack.
Did it taste like Pepper Jack?
Not really, but it was analogous.
Did it look like Pepper Jack?
Not really. Too yellow, slightly grainy. Graininess might have been because I cut short the final step of stirring by a minute because my arm was tired.
Did it shred like Pepper Jack?
Claims were made that it did, but we belatedly realized that we don't own a grater.
It was too soft to shove through the food processor, but I feel like you might have been able to do it by hand.
We had to tear off chunks to make pizza.
Did it melt like Pepper Jack?
This is a weird one. I could totally see using this in a crock pot for nachos. Or mac & cheese. It was that sort of melty, but it didn't quite ooze right for pizza. Our chunks were pretty large and didn't manage to achieve total surface coverage. They spread out in the same way cookie balls do.
Did it taste good?
Yes. We'll probably go this route again.
