Junk food has gone healthy! This vegan Mexican pizza is filled with protein, fresh veggies and plenty of flavor. Eating “bad” never felt so good!
8 sprouted grain or gluten free tortillas
Spicy “Refried” Lentil Dip
1 cup chopped kale
1 cup chopped tomatoes
½ cup sliced green onions
½ cup chopped cilantro
2 cups chopped lettuce
Guacamole, double the recipe
Salsa of choice
Vegan Sour Cream, half the recipe
your favorite hot sauce (optional)
Note from the chef: You can add or delete any of the toppings and use regular sour cream if you aren’t concerned with it being totally vegan. You can also add some vegan cheese, such as Daiya, on top of the lentil dip when putting it together (or regular cheese if you don’t mind it not being vegan). If you want to make this without spice, then don’t add the peppers when making the “Refried” Lentil Dip, this makes the dip very kid friendly.
1. Preheat oven to 350. Place tortillas on cookie sheets and bake for 3-4 minutes on each side.
2. Make Spicy “Refried” Lentil Dip, Guacamole, and Sour Cream if it isn’t already prepared.
3. Wash and chop veggies.
4. Once tortillas are done, spread ¼ of a cup bean dip on 4 of the tortillas, sprinkle with chopped kale and green onions. Add cheese here if using. Cover with the remaining tortillas. Spread another ¼ cup of bean dip on top of the second tortilla and sprinkle with a handful of chopped tomatoes.
5. Bake for another 5 minutes. Once done, spread ½ cup Guacamole on top of each pizza, cover with lettuce, cilantro, salsa and sour cream. Using a pizza cutter slice pizza and enjoy!
