Ingredients

Pizza

  • 250 g White Beans 1 400g can drained
  • 2 tbsp Nutritional Yeast Divided
  • 2 tbsp Vegan Cream Cheese I used Sheeze but you could use Toffuti. If you can't find cream cheese use a little water and some nuttelex
  • 1/4 cup Water
  • 1/2 tsp Salt
  • 140 g Asparagus 1 bunch where I'm from
  • 100 g Green Peas I used frozen, defrosted in some warm water
  • 80 g Kale
  • 2 Jumbo Tortillas

Pesto

  • 15 g Almonds
  • 2 cup Flat Leaf Parsley
  • 1 tbsp Nutritional Yeast
  • 2 tbsp Olive Oil I used extra virgin and the flavour was a little strong for me, maybe standard Olive Oil would be better
  • 1 tbsp Lemon Juice
  • 2 tbsp Water
  • 1 tsp Salt

Instructions

  • Preheat a fan forced oven to 200 degrees Celsius.
  • Add the beans, 2 tbsp nutritional yeast, vegan cream cheese and water to a food processor and pulse, then scrape down the sides and process until smooth. Add some more water if it's too pasty, you want it to be somewhere between a paste and a sauce. You can see mine was a bit dry in my photos (although it tasted great), so some water should help.
  • Spread the sauce over the bases 1 cm or so away from the edges to form a crust and bake on wire racks in the oven. The wire rack helps to get a crisp up the tortilla base. Cook for around 10 minutes or until edges are crispy.

  • Whilst the pizzas cook add the pesto ingredients to the food processor and pulse to combine, then scrape down the sides and process until smooth pasty texture forms. Taste and adjust flavours with lemon juice, water or salt as desired. Set aside.

  • Heat a tablespoon of oil in a frying pan and quickly stir fry the asparagus, defrosted peas and kale in 3 separate batches making sure not to overcook them. I like them crispy and just coloured on the outside.

  • Remove the bases from the oven, top with the cooked vegetables and dollops of pesto and slice. Enjoy!

Notes

To make this lower calorie you could reduce the amount of pesto you use, use less beans in the sauce and replace with more water to get a thinner consistency and steam the vegetables instead of stir frying at the end.
