Ingredients (serves 4)

For The Base

  • 2 cans black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 tbsp black chia seeds
  • 2 tbsp ground flax seed
  • 3 tbsp nutritional yeast
  • 2 tsp garlic powder
  • 2 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1 tsp sea salt

For The Topping

  • 1 large mushroom, thinly sliced
  • ¼ cup basil pesto
  • ¼ cup bocconcini
  • ½ cup heirloom tomatoes, halved
  • ½ cup rocket
  • 1 sprig fresh rosemary


Preheat oven to 180°C and line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.

Mix together 13 cup water with the chia seeds and ground flax, and let it sit for 10 minutes until thick and gelatinous. In a food processor, add the beans, flax and chia mix, nutritional yeast, garlic, salt and cayenne. Blend until smooth. Spread mixture onto the parchment paper in the shape of a pizza crust, until about half an inch thick.

Bake for 25 minutes then carefully flip the crust to bake on the underside for 15 minutes. Lightly sauté mushrooms until soft. Remove crust from the oven and top with pesto, bocconcini, mushrooms and tomatoes, then bake for 5 to 10 minutes until the cheese has just melted.

Top with fresh rocket and rosemary.
