Method:

Make the crust:
Mix the yeast and water together in a bowl and set aside for a few minutes. Add the other ingredients and mix well. Knead the dough, then set it in a greased bowl (covered) for about 30 minutes. Punch down the dough and form the crust.

Make the toppings:
In a large skillet, heat the oil over medium heat. Add the garlic and cook until softened (about 2 minutes). Add the beans, salt, and pepper.

Mash the beans to break them up, then stir in the water and simmer, stirring occasionally, until the mixture is creamy (about 8 minutes).

Stir in the basil and set aside.

Assemble the pizza:
Spread the bean mixture evenly on top of the dough round, to within 1/2 inch of the edges. Arrange the tomato slices on top, and season with salt and pepper to taste.

Bake at 200°C in a preheated oven until the crust is browned, 12 to 15 minutes.
Serve hot.

Variations:
Add sliced, pitted kalamata olives when you add the tomatoes.

Garnish with thin strips of fresh basil leaves.
