  • 1 can pinto beans
  • 1/2 red onion diced
  • 2 garlic gloves minced
  • 1 medium sized tomato chopped
  • 1 tsp dried orgegano
  • 1 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1/2 tsp ground cumin
  • 1/2 tsp chipotle
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup (118 ml) water

For the toppings

  • 1/2 red onion diced
  • 1/4 cup (45 g) corn
  • 5 cherry tomatoes halved
  • 1 red bell pepper diced
  • 1/8 cup (13 g) pickled jalapenos sliced
  • 1/2 avocado thinly sliced
  • cilantro

For the cilantro-lime cream

  • 1/2 cup (75 g) cashews soaked
  • 1 tbsp Vegan Mayonnaise
  • 1 handful cilantro
  • 2 tbsp lime juice
  • 1/2 salt
  • 1/4 cup (60 ml) non-dairy milk unsweetened


  • Prep: Preheat the oven to 200°C (390°F).
  • Perpare the refried beans: In a large pan, add 2 tablespoons of water or oil. Then add in the diced red onion and minced garlic. Sauté over medium heat until translucent, about 3 minutes. Next, add in the canned pinto beans and chopped tomato along with the instructed spices. Cook for another 4-5 minutes. Then, puree the beans with a food processor or a potato masher or until they reach the right consistency. Slowly adding in the water while pureeing. Leave some beans chunky or puree everything until completely smooth.
  • Prepare the cilantro-lime cream: In a food processor or blender add in the soaked cashews, vegan mayonnaise, cilantro, lime juice, salt and non-dairy milk. Blend until smooth.
  • Top the pizza: Spread the refried beans onto the pizza crust. Top with diced red onions, corn, halved cherry tomatoes, diced red bell pepper and sliced pickled jalapenos.
  • Bake: Bake the pizza in the oven for about 10-13 minutes. Make sure to check on it regularly. When the pizza has finished baking top with sliced avocado, extra cilantro and cilantro-lime-cream. Enjoy!
