    This is a light but filling pizza recipe that uses tortillas or pitas for the base. Easy to make, and the sauce is also good with pasta.

    Serves: 6 

    • 3 medium tomatoes
    • 2 tablespoons olive oil, or more if needed
    • 1/2 teaspoon salt, or to taste
    • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
    • 1 tablespoon dried tarragon
    • 1/3 cup drained tinned cannellini beans
    • 1/4 cup tinned mushrooms, drained
    • 5 cloves garlic, minced
    • 1 teaspoon chicken seasoning

    • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
    • 2 1/2 cups grated mozzarella cheese
    • 3 large flour tortillas or pita breads

    Preparation:25min  ›  Cook:5min  ›  Ready in:30min 

    1. Preheat the oven to 190 degrees C.
    2. Bring a saucepan of water to a boil. Boil tomatoes for about 5 minutes then remove from the pan and drop into a bowl of cold water. Peel and cut in half. Place tomato halves cut side up onto a baking tray. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt, pepper and tarragon to taste. Reserve 1 teaspoon of tarragon for later.
    3. Bake for 12 minutes in the preheated oven. Meanwhile, combine the beans and mushrooms in a food processor or blender and process until smooth. Set aside in a small dish.
    4. Heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil in a frypan over medium heat. Add the garlic and cook, stirring until fragrant. Add the bean and mushroom paste and stir to blend. When the tomatoes are done, place them into the food processor and process for about 10 seconds. The tomatoes should not become a paste but more of a pulp. Stir the tomatoes into the frypan a little bit at a time and season with chicken seasoning, garlic powder and the remaining teaspoon of tarragon. Heat through.
    5. Place tortillas or pitas into the oven and cook for about 1 minute or until slightly hardened. Remove from the oven and place on a baking tray. Spread some sauce onto the browned side of each tortilla, sprinkle with olive slices and cover generously with grated mozzarella cheese.
    6. Bake for 3 to 5 minutes in the preheated oven, or until cheese is melted and the edges are lightly browned. Cool for a few minutes, then cut into quarters and serve.

    I really wanted to love this. It sounds so good and good for me. But it was just OK. Reminded me too much of a bean tostada. Couldn't tell the mushrooms were even in it. I think I'd try again and not put the mushrooms in the processor. Also add some freah spinach and onions maybe. The sauce looked like refried beans. Maybe leave the tomatoes chunkier? i liked it enough to keep fooling around with it. Thanks for posting.  -  26 May 2011  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
