Why, hello there.
What is that hiding in the corner of the picture? It’s okay, don’t be shy. Come out and let us see you clearly.
Ah, that’s better. It’s a pizza. Perhaps a rather bashful pizza because of it’s uniqueness, but why it was cowering in the corner I have no idea. This pizza deserves to be the center of attention! It’s a crowd pleasing, vegan, Mango, Black Bean and Zucchini Pizza.
Absolutely outstanding. See all the fresh cilantro on this pizza? Totally makes the dish.
Indeed, if you are in need of a lighter, summery pizza this recipe is for you. Sure, it has some unique ingredients for a pizza, but that’s what makes it great! Hit up your local farmer’s market for the zucchini, cilantro and onions if you can. And whatever you don’t find there will surely be available at your grocery store.
Please make this soon for the people you care about! They’ll love you even more. Promise.
Mango, Black Bean and Zucchini Pizza
Serves 3 hungry people
Recipe adapted from Oh My Veggies
1 prepared whole wheat pizza crust (vegan if possible)
3/4 cup of any salsa of your choice (I used Pineapple Salsa from Trader Joe’s)
3/4 cup of vegan Mexican blend shredded cheese
1/2 cup of thinly sliced zucchini (I used yellow!)
2/3 cup of sliced mango (fresh or frozen)
1/4 cup of black beans, rinsed and drained
1/4 cup of chopped yellow onion
1/4 cup of fresh cilantro
To create this quick and unbelievably tasty pizza, simply slice and chop all ingredients that need slicing and chopping. Preheat oven according to your prepared crust’s instructions and spread/roll out the dough onto a baking sheet. Once the dough is in place, spread the salsa on the dough leaving about an inch around the edge of the pizza salsa free. After the sauce is evenly spread, top dough with zucchini, mango, black beans and onions. Sprinkle on the cheese last, and bake pizza in oven per the instructions on the prepared dough package. After the pizza is out of the oven, top with the fresh cilantro. Let cool a minute or two, then slice and consume!
