Vegan Hawaiian BBQ Pizza with Cashew Parmesan
A vegan BBQ pizza with black beans, pineapple, and flavorful cashew parmesan! So satisfying, plus easy to customize.
- 15 oz. can black beans
- 1/2 small red onion
- 2 cups pineapple tidbits (canned or fresh)
- 1 cup BBQ sauce
- 1 large pizza crust/dough (homemade or store-bought)
- Fresh cilantro for garnish
For the cashew parmesan:
- 1/2 cup raw cashews
- 3 Tbsp. nutritional yeast
- 1/8 tsp. garlic powder
- 1/4 tsp. salt
Preheat oven to 400°F (204°C) or whatever temperature your pizza crust is happiest.
Make the cashew parmesan*: Place all parmesan ingredients in a food processor and process until crumbly.
Slice onion and dice pineapple.
Place pizza dough/crust on an oven-safe sheet or pizza pan. Evenly spread the BBQ sauce on top of dough/crust.
Sprinkle a layer of cashew parmesan, then black beans (rinsed and drained), onion, and pineapple.
Place in oven and bake 10-15 minutes or until heated through.
While pizza is baking, roughly chop cilantro.
When pizza is done, top with cilantro. (I add another light sprinkle of cashew parmesan before serving as well.)
*Cashew parmesan: You might have leftover parmesan depending on how much you use. It stores in a sealed jar or container in the fridge for a few months.
