Potato pizza is an authentic Italian delight. Mashed beans and roasted garlic keep the topping in place.

vegan pizza


  • 1 garlic bulb
  • 3 tablespoons unsweetened plant milk, such as almond, soy, cashew, or rice
  • ¾ cup canned no-salt-added cannellini (white kidney) beans, rinsed and drained
  • Sea salt, to taste
  • Freshly cracked black pepper, to taste
  • 1 tablespoon yellow cornmeal
  • 1 recipe Homemade Oil-Free Pizza Dough or 1 lb. refrigerated whole wheat pizza dough
  • 8 oz. small Yukon gold potatoes, thinly sliced
  • 1 medium onion, halved and thinly sliced
  • 1½ teaspoons chopped fresh thyme


  1. Preheat oven to 400°F. Cut off the top ½ inch of garlic bulb to expose ends of individual cloves. Leaving bulb whole, remove any loose, papery outer layers. Place bulb, cut end up, in a custard cup. Drizzle with 1 Tbsp. of the milk. Roast, covered, 30 minutes or until garlic is soft when squeezed; cool. Squeeze garlic bulb from the bottom, pressing cloves into a small bowl. Add beans; mash garlic and beans together with a fork. Stir in 1 Tbsp. of the milk. Season with salt and pepper.
  2. Meanwhile, line a large baking sheet with foil and sprinkle with cornmeal. On a lightly floured surface, roll Homemade Oil-Free Pizza Dough into a 12-inch circle. Transfer to the prepared baking sheet. Bake 10 minutes or until lightly browned. Remove from oven. Increase oven temperature to 450°F.
  3. In a large nonstick skillet cook potatoes and onion over medium 5 minutes or until just tender, stirring occasionally and adding water, 1 to 2 Tbsp. at a time, to prevent sticking.
  4. Spread crust with bean mixture; top with potatoes and onion. Brush with the remaining 1 Tbsp. milk. Season with salt and pepper. Bake 10 to 12 minutes more or until crust is golden and vegetables are tender. Sprinkle with thyme.

Do you have some Thyme to listen to me tell how good this was?! 10/10 would make again! The beans are smooth and add a wonderful flavor and texture!
