don't screw up your face like that. it's actually really good. one of my favorite places to get pizza is aver's and they make a black bean and cilantro pesto pizza that rocks-(minus the cheese). well aver's is not cheap so i made my own version and topped it with follow your heart mozzarella. (((singing))) this-is-how-you-do-it...
i don't feel like paying for aver's black bean and cilantro pesto pizza
- 1 pizza crust- i used Pillsbury's, totally vegan (full of chemicals, but vegan) you can also do what my friend mari does and buy a ball of finished dough from a pizzeria for a couple of bucks, OR you can just make the damn thing.
- 1 can of black beans (drained and rinsed to get rid of that pesky sodiumy bean juice)
- follow your heart mozzarella or another favorite vegan cheese. this isn't mandatory, the pizza is fine without it.
- 1 c. cilantro chopped
- 1 handful of plain almonds
- 1/4 c. olive oil
- 1/4 c. lime juice
- 1t liquid smoke
- 1/2 t salt
- 1/4 c. water
- 1/2 small onion, chopped
put all the sauce ingredients in a blender and puree the shit out of it. god, i love doing that. spread the pesto on the dough while you're pre-heating the oven at 350. top with beans, banana peppers, fake cheese, and jalapenos. bake for about 15 minutes.
