Preparation Time

Cook Time





Step 1:

  • Makes about 4 pizzas
  • Step 2:

  • Step 3:

  • 1. Dice your onion and tomato. If you’re using cherry tomatoes, simply cut those in half.
  • Step 4:

  • 2. If you’re using chillies or peppers, dice those now too.
  • Step 5:

  • 3. Pour a bit of oil in the pan, turn on medium-low heat.
  • Step 6:

  • 4. Throw in most of the onions; reserve some for use as a topping later. Allow onions in pan to become translucent.
  • Step 7:

  • 5. If you have extra tomato you want to use, you can also throw some in the pan while reserving some for topping. This is a good time to add the chillies/peppers you cut up too.
  • Step 8:

  • 6. In the meantime, preheat your oven (or toaster oven) to 375 degrees fahrenheit on the bake setting.
  • Step 9:

  • 7. Dice or shred your choice of greens and lay out the desired number of tortillas.
  • Step 10:

  • 8. Use your mixing spoon to get all the beans out of the can and into the pan. Smush beans with spoon and fold them over with the onions. They’ll be easier to mix as they warm up. Just make sure it doesn’t burn on the bottom, and you’re doing well.
  • Step 11:

  • 9. Once the beans are very easy to mix and steaming a bit, turn off the stove. Use your mixing spoon to plop two spoonfuls of beans (more or less) in the middle of each tortilla and spread the beans around in a single layer, leaving about half an inch of margin all around the tortilla for the "crust."
  • Step 12:

  • 10. Pour your hot sauce on top and spread that over the beans.
  • Step 13:

  • 11. Sprinkle your cheese next, then add onions, tomatoes, and the greens. If using cherry tomatoes, make sure the cut side is facing up.
  • Step 14:

  • 12. Put the pizza in the oven until the cheese is melty and the tortilla is turning golden around the edges but not too crispy or burned. This should take ~4 minutes. Just keep checking on it until it’s the kind of crispy you want.
  • Step 15:

  • Step 16:

  • Step 17:

  • note: this whole process is very flexible. If you don’t have something or want to switch out ingredients, it’s okay. My steps are more of a guide than strict rules.
