I was craving black beans, but I was also craving pizza. Finding myself without the tomatoes for normal pizza, I decided to try and make a black bean pizza. I had never had it and had no idea what it would taste like. Let’s just say this is the best pizza ever. Ok? Ok.
I’ve found naan bread to be an excellent base for pizzas. You can make them really fluffy bases or really crispy, and the size of a naan is a perfect size for a personal pie. Ugh. So good.
It’d be great to spice this up a bit next time with some jalapeños. I also think diced tomato on the top would be marvellous. It was amazing at is, but adding things is always quite fun. Plus this is so stupid easy there are limitless combinations to be made!
1 can of black beans, drained
1 small onion
1 large clove of garlic
Salt & pepper to taste
Vegan cheese of your choice (I used Cheezly Mozz)
Pre-heat oven to 190C/400F.
Dribble some olive oil in a pan and sauté your onions and garlic for a few minutes. After the onions are slightly soft, add the black beans. Add a healthy dash of garlic powder and cilantro plus salt and pepper. Cook together for around 3 minutes.
While that cooks, grate some vegan cheese/if already grated, put aside.
Put naan bread on a cookie sheet and top with the black bean, onion, and garlic mixture, spreading it around. Should be quite thick. Top it all with grated cheese and with some more cilantro, salt, and pepper. Cook for around five minutes before switching to the broiler to melt the cheese for another five.
