Cooking Time




  • Gluten Free Tortillas
  • Fresh basil or parsley for garnish (optional)

For the Tomato Sauce

  • 8 oz can tomato sauce
  • 2 pounds tomatoes, cut into large chunks
  • 1/2 onion, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 3 cloves garlic, peeled and rough chopped
  • 2 Tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon coconut palm sugar
  • Salt & pepper, to taste

For the Cheesy Sauce

  • 1 can white beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 tablespoon white miso paste
  • 1/2 cup nutritional yeast (plus extra to toss on the completed pizza like you would Parmesan)
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard


  1. Heat oil in large skillet or wide-bottom pot over medium-low heat; using a food processor or blender, blend the tomato sauce ingredients until pasta sauce consistency. Pour into skillet or pot to cook, stirring occasionally – about 10-15 minutes until bubbling and warm; pour into a heat-safe bowl, cover and set aside. Wipe out the skillet or wide-bottom pot and return to stove over medium-low heat.
  2. Blend the cheesy sauce using the (rinsed) food processor or with immersion blender; set aside.
  3. Spray the skillet very lightly with cooking spray; cook the tortilla until brown; flip and cook until crispy; slide onto a cutting board.
  4. Top evenly with warm tomato sauce; spoon some cheesy sauce over the top. Top with fresh basil or chopped parsley and additional nutritional yeast; slice into wedges; repeat with 3 more tortillas.


Additional topping ideas to try: Sautéed onions, peppers, and mushrooms, sliced kalamata olives, sautéed spinach - anything you can dream up.
