Tell me, what screams Happy Friday more than pizza?
- 15 Minute Pizza
- Healthy Pizza
- High Protein Pizza
- Even-your-dog-could-make-it Pizza
- Spilling boiling water on your finger as you pour your morning tea (I screamed all right but it wasn’t Happy Friday…)
This is another Quick & Dirty recipe that I just fell in love with this week. It involves my 5-Ingredient vegan cheeze sauce, as well as a handful of other healthy ingredients that are quick to throw together.
Sometimes the best meals are the spontaneous ones. Sometimes the worst meals are the spontaneous ones. Sometimes the biggest flops are the one you dream about and plan for days drawing out detailed instructions, ingredients, maps, and brainstorming trees.
It all evens out, especially when there is pizza involved!
Cheezy Tortilla Pizzas for Two (Or 1 if you are greedy like me)
I will be collecting tips in my tip jar at the end of this post thankyouverymuch.
Yield: 2 pizzas
- 2 tortillas (I used Food for Life Ezekiel tortillas)
- 1.5-2 cups cooked black beans (or one 15-oz can)
- 1/3 cup 5-ingredient cheeze sauce
- 3 tbsp minced fresh Parsley (or herb of choice)
- 1/2 cup red onion, chopped
- 1/2 cup bell pepper, chopped
- 1/2 avocado, chopped
- 1/4 tsp kosher salt (to taste) and ground cumin spice, to taste
- Pizza sauce
- Sprinkle of Daiya cheese or other non-dairy cheese
1. Preheat oven to 350F and line a baking sheet with parchment or non-stick baking mat.
2. In a medium-sized bowl, mix together the drained & rinsed beans, cheeze sauce, parsley, onion, pepper, and seasonings until combined.
3. Place tortillas on baking sheet and add your desired amount of pizza sauce on top. Divide bean mixture between two tortillas and spread with a spoon.
4. Sprinkle on cheese and bake for 10 minutes at 350F and then broil for 2 minutes on low heat until golden. Watch closely as it can burn quickly on the broil setting…and no one wants a pizza burnt to crisp. I’ve been there. It ain’t pretty!
Simply mix up your cheeze sauce, beans, veggies, and seasonings in a bowl.
Add on your pizza sauce and then divide the bean mixture between the two tortillas.
Add a sprinkle of your fav cheese! My favourite vegan cheese is Daiya cheese (it’s soy free too).
Bake for 10 minutes at 350F and then broil on low for 2 minutes to crisp.
Easy pizza that’s high in protein, flavourful…
and reeeeeeally fun to slice up.
But not fun to wait to eat while I take these pictures!
You can enjoy the pizzas many ways, including slicing them into mini pizza slices.
and then stuffing in your face.
I could not do this as I was still taking pictures.
Or fold it up and enjoy it Calzone style…
I could not enjoy this Calzone as I was still taking pictures.
You can also slice, roll, and make cute little appetizer pinwheels!
Immediately after this photo, I devoured the pizza. All was well in the world again.
Now, I’m craving leftover pizza for breakfast, except there are no leftovers because I ate it all. Hrmph.
These look phenomenal! I wish I would have saved ‘pizza day’ for today. I made myself pizza for dinner last night, but this pizza looks 10x better! :)
I think we are all convinced on these amazing pizzas. I like to make pizza every Friday actually and what a fun way this is too switch it up. Really, though… they are so healthy too. Win-win, right!
This brings my love of cold pizza to a whole new level!
That looks very tasty! I like thin crust pizza, so tortillas work well for me. Love how you mixed the cheez sauce with the beans and veggies. Yum! :)
I just went to the store to buy the ingredients for this because it looks so amazing!!
You are such a cute writer. The “hrmp” at the end made me laugh. Keep up the great writing!
Oh this looks so freaking delicious!!!!
YUM! This looks incredibly tasty and fresh! I love quick, easy yet delicious meals!!
That is the best looking pizza I have seen all week.
Looks great. I love a simple and quick recipe during the summer when I would rather be outside playing than inside cooking!
I love Ezekiel products. What a great idea, Thanks!
These ingredients all look so fresh and bright! How tasty!
My biggest pet peeve about tortilla pizzas is how the toppings always fall off. But you’ve solved that problem by mixing them into the cheesy sauce! :D These look perfect!
What a fun and innovative idea, Ange! Love it.
Such a unique spin on pizza! I’m definitely going to try this on brown rice tortillas and hope for the best! =)
Love individual pizzas!! I need to make more; I used to make them all the time in my last apartment. :-)
this is a wonderful idea! they look so great! Happy Weekend!
I have been on a pita/tortilla pizza kick lately! I want to try this recipe out to add variety!
Ang – these look amazing!! I also think I’m going to try my hand at making those delicious looking cookie dough doughnuts this weekend!
HEAVEN! My goodness, these were amazing! The new cheesy sauce is officially my new go to! It’s so easy, thick, and creamy, and cheezy dreamy! (:
Can you *make* Daiya-type cheeze out of Nooch? That would be awesome!
Ezekial tortillas are perfect for pizzas!!
Did you eat your now cold pizza with resentment festering towards your camera…you know, giving it the evil eye? ;)
This looks great! My family and I often make our own pizzas with tortillas or pita bread as a quick (and fun!) do-it-yourself meal–I love how much you can customize your own & I’ll have to try black beans on mine next time!
loooove making these tomorrow! i love your website :)
These were awesome! Had them for supper last night and again for lunch today. I also love the new cheeze recipe:)
Making these tonight !!!! :) can’t wait! I need to alter the hubby’s a bit though as he doesn’t love beans! :/ or pretends not to…..
That looks freakin’ delicious!
At last, a “faux cheese” sauce that gets the job done! I made a double batch, poured it over a gluten-free tamale pie casserole, and it was sooooo delicioso!
Mmmmm, Mmmmm Yummy. I made these for my post Irene dinner and they are delicious.
thanks again for sharing your vision and creativity. Angela – you have re-ignited my interest in cooking for myself. It was worth it when I was cooking for a family of 5 but now that it is just me I make lazy, uninspired and unhealthy choices for my meals. My son dropped in right at dinner time and I wasn’t so sure I wanted to share. I did and he was delighted.
I just made this pizza. It was soooooo delicious!!
Thanks so much. :)
I am so glad I found your website.
Sweet. I am so glad to come across this news! I have a Vegan Counselor at Camp , and I am sure she is getting tired of the same ole same ole i give her. She will be pleased when i make her the pizza / or pinwheels. oh and mac and “cheese” . cannot wait. I am so excited! Ty!
I just made this tonight …wow it is utterly delicious !!!
This was super tasty! If you are looking for suggestions I used basil which was wonderful! I found the bean to everything else ratio to be a little bit overwhelming so I think I’ll cut it down next time :)
Hello! Great looking recipe! Excited to try it!
Do you have the nutrition breakdown – carbs, protein, fat??
