White Bean Pizza

Ever since Miss Yunks had The Bean pizza at Stone Hearth Pizza, she’s wanted to make it herself.  Well,  10 months later, that’s exactly what she did.

Inspired by The Bean (Garlic oil, white bean spread, fresh mozzarella, sautéed red onion topped with a spinach/pesto salad), I topped a pizza with white bean puree made with truffle oil, fresh mozzarella, sauteed red onion, and arugula.  This seemingly fancy pizza is quite simple to put together.  BF rolled out the dough while I used my food processor to made white bean dip with 1 can of great northern beans and 4 T of truffle oil.  Maybe I was a bit excessive because I was really excited to have finally found truffle oil to buy.  And I only used half the can on the pizza.  I drizzled a bit of garlic oil on the dough, spread out some bean dip, lay down sliced mozzarella, and sprinkled chopped sauteed red onions.  I baked the pizza at 500 degrees for 10 minutes.  I then topped the pizza with arugula and baked for 2 more minutes.

The verdict? We both loved it, of course!  The bean spread adds texture, protein, and fiber making this a very hearty and filling pizza.  It tasted great hot out of the oven and cold as leftovers.

What’s the most interesting pizza you’ve eaten recently?

    How have I never heard of Stone Hearth? I love the idea of using a bean puree as the pizza’s base!
