Chipotle Refried Beans, Pico De Gallo, Lime crema on Wheat Sorghum Crust. Mexican Pizza. Vegan Recipe


Its Pizza time! I whipped up this Mexican Pizza a few days back. I decided to top it with Easy home made Refried beans with a hint of chipotle pepper (Frijoles Refritos), topped them with fresh Pico de gallo(yes its a phase) and Lime crema. I think I love the beany pizza sauces more than the plain old marinara:) The Pizza did not need any cheese. Vegan Cheddar would go well on it if desired. 

I have a big Roasted Kabocha squash. Yes I roasted it whole, like the butternut for about 35 minutes at 330 degrees F .. Turned out beautifully.:) .I think I am going to whip up either some Spicy Kabocha Flautas/Taquitos or Kabocha Chickpea fries tomorrow.. vote in the comments below for which one:).

I made some Roasted Kabocha Crepes/Dosa, exactly as the Sweet Potato Crepes, and made a short video of me making the crepes. The video is uploaded at the end of the Sweet potato crepe post.



My eyes are being very ridiculous since the past week and I am ready to learn to walk blind folded.. I couldnt stand in the kitchen for more than 2 minutes for 2 full days last week..gaaah… finally I realized I can walk easier on the carpeted area, so we put a thick rug on the tiles and I made it to the 15 minute in the kitchen mark.. Plans to get a home with all hard wood has to be reconsidered for a once or twice a year randomness as these. Pfft.
Luckily I have a bunch of pictures I needed to edit and my eyes are holding up while working on the machine with breaks.. so here is a pizza for the weekend.

    How frustrating, Richa – - I hope that you regain your balance and are able to spend time doing what you love. Interesting about the carpet.

    Another luscious pizza! The lime crema is really what grabbed me :-)!

      i am more frustrated about not getting to be in the kitchen than not being able to walk much:)) i need to figure out whats causing this spell.. its not fun for sure..

    I should know better by now not to read your posts at dinner time. Thankfully I had already decided on saag paneer tonight but this recipe goes on my schedule.
    An anti-fatigue mat in the kitchen might be a blessing or cork flooring (very giving). Strips of carpet (think table runner-style) with non-skid backing, strategically placed, would allow hardwood flooring with a comfort option when required.

    This looks super delicious; so do many of your other pizza recipes!

    I hope you feel better and I will tell you if I try this recipe or a variation of it.

    Related to pizza, I thought you might be interested in a recipe for pan pizza crust on Serious Eats. I found it easy and it turned out well. I made it with some vegan mozzarella from Miyoko Schinner’s website, Sheese Bluse Cheese and I think I used a pizza sauce recipe from Serious eAts as well. Here is the link if your are interested.

    Mexican pizza! I never thought that such a concept could really work, but you have clearly proven me wrong, and happily so. Now I can’t help but dream of trying this on a cornmeal crust… That would be completely perfect!
