Black Bean Pizza

This recipe was pretty quick and I threw it together with stuff I already had lying around. Since we're moving in a few months, I want to try and use up as many pantry items as possible so we don't have to pack them. Enter, black beans in a can, pizza sauce and dough I had in the freezer.

Black Bean Pizza


1 can black beans, drained and rinsed
1 cup pizza sauce (I used Ragu Pizza Quick, Original Style)
1 tablespoon of salsa
1 teaspoon each -
red pepper flakes
garlic powder
onion powder
1 cup mexican blend cheese
1 recipe pizza dough

Mix beans, salsa, and spices in a bowl. Spread sauce on pizza dough and top with the bean mixture. Top with cheese.

Serves: 4

This recipe was pretty tasty, but didn't do too well when we reheated it. I think it dried out a bit in the fridge overnight. If having as leftovers, I would suggest putting a little sauce on the top before you reheat it.
