Our Experience With Gluten Free Vegan Pizzas

I have been in the mood lately for pizza, but I wanted a pizza that wasn’t the traditional kind with pizza sauce.  I wanted one that was hearty, flavorful, and loaded with lots of colorful veggies. Check out my Mediterranean Pumpkin Pizza.

I have been disappointed lately while being away from home in finding a pizza place that sells really good gluten-free pizzas. Not to mention how expensive they can be by the time you choose your favorite toppings.

I have found this really great place in Jacksonville that sells pretty good gluten-free vegan pizzas that don’t cost an arm and a leg. My husband found a place in Tampa that served great pizzas, while on a recent business trip.

Basically, the places are few and far apart. My husband and I pretty much like the same flavors, olives, red onions, tomatoes, artichoke, jalapeno peppers, vegan cheese, and pineapple (oh yes!). For a customized gluten-free pizza with those toppings, it can be pretty expensive.

Most of the time, our children, really love basic pizza with tomatoes and olives.

Ingredients For Gluten-Free Vegan Black Bean Pizza

So I decided to make this gluten-free black bean pizza with a gluten-free vegan crust, topped with vegan cheese shreds (I used Daiya),  seasoned black beans, and corn kernels, and bake in a skillet. After baking, I then added freshly chopped tomatoes, avocados, and spring onions.

  • Gluten-Free Pizza Crust: This crust serves as the perfect base for those avoiding gluten. It’s specially formulated to mimic the texture and taste of traditional pizza dough, providing a crisp, satisfying foundation without wheat.
  • Black Beans: Used as both a topping and a base layer, black beans add a rich, creamy texture and a robust flavor. They’re high in protein and fiber, making them an excellent nutritional addition to this vegan pizza.
  • Corn: Sweet corn kernels bring a slight crunch and natural sweetness that contrasts beautifully with the savory elements of the pizza.
  • Tomato: Fresh tomato slices add moisture and a tangy flavor that complements the richness of the black beans and vegan cheese.
  • Vegan Cheese: This dairy-free alternative melts beautifully, offering the gooey, creamy consistency expected of pizza without any animal products. It’s perfect for adding richness and depth to each slice.
  • Cherry Tomatoes: Smaller and sweeter than regular tomatoes, cherry tomatoes roast up nicely in the oven, bursting with flavor and adding a vibrant pop of color.
  • Avocado: Sliced or diced, avocado provides a buttery texture and a rich, creamy taste that enhances the overall decadence of the pizza.
  • Spring Onion: Chopped spring onion adds a mild, crisp bite and a burst of freshness, offering a slight sharpness that balances the heavier flavors.
