• Prep-time: / Ready In:
  • Makes 1 pizza

Barbecue sauce dials up the sweet-and-savory goodness of pineapple pizza in this mouthwatering 30-minute meal. If you want the texture to be a little more chewy, use the short end of the baking range. You can use store-bought oil-free pizza crust or make your own with our basic WFPB Pizza Crust or our Quick Cornmeal Pizza Crust (Gluten-Free).


  • 3 cups bite-size cauliflower florets
  • ½ cup low-sugar barbecue sauce
  • ½ of a 15-oz. can no-salt-added cannellini beans, rinsed and drained (¾ cup)
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • Pinch cayenne pepper
  • 1 oil-free whole wheat pizza crust
  • 1 cup chopped fresh pineapple
  • ¼ cup sliced scallions (green onions)
  • ¼ cup chopped fresh cilantro


  1. Preheat oven to 400°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat. In a medium bowl toss cauliflower with ¼ cup of the barbecue sauce. In a small bowl mash beans with cumin and cayenne pepper.
  2. Place pizza crust on the prepared baking sheet. Spread bean mixture over crust, leaving a ½-inch border around edge. Top with pineapple and the cauliflower mixture. Drizzle with the remaining ¼ cup barbecue sauce.
  3. Bake 15 to 20 minutes or until crust is browned around edges and cauliflower is crisp-tender. Sprinkle with scallions and cilantro. Cut into wedges.
