Ingredients

  • Your favorite pizza crust (I made my own crust, see notes)
  • One 16 oz can refried beans (I used homemade, see notes)
  • 1 medium onion
  • 1 medium red bell pepper
  • 1/4 cup corn
  • 2/3 tsp ground cumin
  • 1/2 tsp paprika
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • A pinch of cayenne
  • 1 jalapeño pepper or more to taste
  • 7-8 oz vegan cheese (I used homemade, see notes)
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Salsa (optional, see notes)

Instructions

  • First, prepare the dough using my Homemade Gluten-Free Pizza Crust Recipe (click for the recipe) or use a store-bought pizza crust. Check the recipe notes below for the tortilla version.
  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit (205 degrees Celsius) and line a large baking sheet with greased parchment paper.
  • Transfer the Refried Beans to a bowl and add a splash of water to make the mixture spreadable. Add all spices (cumin, paprika, garlic powder, cayenne pepper).
  • Chop/dice/slice the onion, pepper, and jalapeño.
  • Transfer the pizza crust onto the lined baking sheet and add a thick layer of refried beans.
  • Put the veggies, jalapeño, and corn on top.
  • Finally, add a generous layer of vegan cheese (I added my Vegan Cheese Sauce).
  • Sprinkle with salt and bake the pizza in the oven until crispy, about 20 minutes. Enjoy!

Notes

  • Here is the recipe for my Gluten-Free Pizza Crust.
  • You can use 4 (10-inch) flour tortillas instead of a pizza crust. Fry all tortillas in some oil, then top two tortillas with refried beans and veggies. Cover each tortilla with a second tortilla, bake in the oven for 8-10 minutes. Spread some salsa and vegan cheese on top of each tortilla stack and return to the oven for 5-8 more minutes.
