This started as an attempt to save myself from throwing out a ton of leftovers in a couple days. It turned out so good I just had to share it. Lets call this my version of wordless wednesday. No blah blah today! The sauce is gluten free, the pizza itself, only if you have a gluten free crust… maybe a cauliflower crust?
Serves: 3 cups of sauce Total time: 15min
1.5 cups Navy beans or other leftover legumes.
1 cup canned diced tomatoes
1/2 cup canned or frozen (prepared leftovers) corn
2 Italian tomatoes chopped roughly (or more canned tomatoes)
2 tbsp leftover rice
1tsp dried oregano
1tsp dried basil
Salt if not in your rice
1/2 tsp dried onion
1 tbsp broth or water.
Put all in food processor and process to a not quite smooth texture.
Vegetarian Cheese-less Pizza:
Serves however many you want to serve, Time depends on how fast your kids move!
Favourite pizza base (Pita, Tortilla, Naan, bought crust, homemade crust)
The white bean sauce
Favourite toppings (peppers, olives, mushrooms, yellow squash, tomatoes, roasted peppers, artichoke hearts)
Daiya “cheese” (optional)
1 or more children
Slice toppings. Put in individual containers
Place one base in front of each kid.
Place about 1/3 cup of sauce on each pizza and allow kids to spread with spoon.
Making toppings available based on ages younger kids it’s easier if you offer each thing one at a time. School age kids enjoy free access.
Bake according to the crust you put it on. On a pita or tortilla I set oven to 400 and bake about 15 min or until edges brown and if you put it, the “cheese” has melted.
Son – Tomato, yellow squash, roasted red pepper, olives, mushrooms, and daiya cheese

Can you find the more selective eater 😉
Bonus tip: Turn the sauce into a pasta sauce by sauteing up some onion and garlic add the sauce and a few more veggies to the pan (I recommend roasted or raw red pepper, brocolli and olives) and a bit of tomato paste or other tomato product if desired.
What is your favourite kind of pizza?!
