Barbecue Black Bean and Pineapple Pizza for One

in Entrees

bbq pineapple pizza 10Some people like sausage on their pizza.

Some people like black olives.

Some people will only eat pizza if it is topped with pepperoni.

And some people keep it simple with plain cheese. <– I love a good cheese pizza!

While I am a cheese pizza lover and definitely eat my share of veggie pizza, my heart  belongs to a more nontraditional topping:

bbq pineapple pizza 3Barbecue sauce anyone?  It is no secret that I cannot get enough of it, so why not add it to my pizza?

bbq pineapple pizza 4This is a sweet and savory pizza at its best.  Sweet barbecue sauce and pineapple chunks paired with savory black beans and onions all on a crispy tortilla pizza crust.  Yyyeah… it tastes like heaven, too.

bbq pineapple pizza 12Barbecue Black Bean and Pineapple Pizza for One


1 whole wheat tortilla
1/4 cup barbecue sauce
2 TB red onions, diced
1/2 cup black beans, cooked
1/4 cup pineapple tidbits or chunks
2 TB green onions, chopped


1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.  Spray a pizza pan or baking sheet with olive oil cooking spray.

2. Place tortilla onto the baking sheeting and bake for approximately 3 to 5 minutes, or until the crust becomes golden brown.

3. Remove the tortilla from the oven.  Top the tortilla with barbecue sauce, red onions, black beans, pineapple, and green onions.

4. Return pizza to the oven and cook for approximately 5 minutes.

5. Turn the broiler on low and broil for approximately 2 to 3 minutes, or until the crust is crispy, but not burnt.

bbq pineapple pizza 6Barbecue sauce may not be your traditional pizza sauce.  Pineapple and black beans may not be your go-to pizza toppings.  But once you taste this, I think you just may change your mind on which pizza toppings you will reach for in the future.

bbq pineapple pizza 5I could eat pizza every. single. day and never tire of it.  And I have a feeling that I am not the only one.

With simple and easy pizzas like this one, that is totally doable.  Or, if I am being more practical, they at least make it possible to eat pizza on a weekly basis.  Because let’s face it.  There are not that many people out there who actually eat pizza on a daily basis- even if they want to.

    I love BBQ sauce in place of marinara on pizza. Actually, it doesn't replace it, it's more like finding another love in pizza form - depends on what you are in the mood for lol. I made a BBQ flavored pizza the night before my last race and it was delish. meredith @ The Cookie ChRUNicles recently posted...Put Away Your Measuring CupMy Profile

      Pineapple on pizza is SO good, isn't it? It is an awesome addition to a vegetarian/veggie pizza!

    I love pineapple, but I'm usually not a fan of it on pizza. BBQ sauce pizza with pineapple however sounds really good! Nicole @ Fruitnfitness recently posted...WIAW – antioxidantsMy Profile

      It totally has the sweet/savory thing going on! You should definitely try it :)

    We've been using tortillas as pizza crusts down here in Texas for ages, yet our pizzas have never looked that amazing! I'm a sucker for onion and pineapple on pizza, and a way to sneak in some black beans? YUM! Katherine recently posted...Look Up.My Profile

      It is definitely a more unique approach to a pizza, but it is a tasty one! And I LOVE using tortillas for the crust since it enables me to just make one and not have a TON of leftovers.
  • Courtney May 16, 2014, 10:23 pm
    I've never used tortillas as a pizza either, but I'm excited to try this! I especially like how fast it would be to whip this up! Thanks for the post!
    • ClnEatingVegGrl May 17, 2014, 10:36 am
      Using tortillas as a pizza crust is the best! It makes it SUPER easy to whip it up for a quick dinner. You should definitely give it a try :)

      Isn't fresh basil SO good? I just finally started cooking with it and I REALLY need to start putting it on my pizza!
  • Brittany May 18, 2014, 8:43 am
    I LOVEEE pineapple on pizza, paired with BBQ sauce and you've got a HIT. My must have topping would be potatoes. OHH man, I think I know what I am having for dinner. Your pizza looks legit.
    • ClnEatingVegGrl May 18, 2014, 12:53 pm
      Thanks Brittany!!! And I SO agree. Potatoes on pizza are the bomb!

    • ClnEatingVegGrl May 18, 2014, 6:57 pm
      Thank YOU Megan for your very kind words! I LOVE hearing from people who try my recipes. That makes all of the hard work extremely worthwhile :)

    I'm probably one of the few - but I've never tasted pineapple on pizza before. Not sure what it is, but it has just never sounded appetizing. I am a lover of BBQ sauce though. If I had to choose a favorite topping it'd be tuna. I kno I know, but the tuna pizza I shared on my blog awhile back is just awesome.
    • ClnEatingVegGrl May 19, 2014, 7:53 pm
      You should definitely give pineapple a try! At least you are definitely on board with the bbq sauce :) And tuna sounds a bit different, but I will trust you on that. Back when I ate seafood, tuna was about the only type that I WOULD eat... so I can see how it might be good!

    This is such a simple recipe! Love it! After all, sometimes you just need a pizza to yourself! :)

      That could not be more true! I love when I do not have to share! ;)

    love pineapple on pizza!
    • ClnEatingVegGrl May 24, 2014, 1:53 pm
      Yay! I love when I hear others who feel that way :)
  • Kyla May 25, 2014, 11:41 pm
    This looks incredible! I like the idea of making pizza on a tortilla crust. Totally have to try this. Thanks for the recipe!!
    • ClnEatingVegGrl May 27, 2014, 7:37 pm
      You are welcome, Kyla! I hope you enjoy it :)
  • Laura Beth May 26, 2014, 6:11 pm
    Pineapple, red onion, jalepeno, and roasted garlic. With marinara or BBQ. Either way, you can't go wrong. If the pineapple is grilled first...even better. :)
    • ClnEatingVegGrl May 27, 2014, 7:43 pm
      That sounds fantastic! I definitely need to add jalapenos to my pizza next time!
