Black Bean Mexican Pizza

While Megan was here last week I asked her if there was anything she wanted me to cook for her and she mentioned Black Bean Pizza. It was a recipe I had not yet posted, so I thought I would add it now. It had been a while since I had made it and we all enjoyed eating it. It's sort of like refried beans on a pizza crust.

Black Bean Mexican Pizza

1 pizza crust, baked 7-10 mins. (here's a basic recipe)
1 15 oz. can black beans, drained and rinsed (could also use pinto beans)
3-5 Tbsps. salsa
2 Tbsps. chopped fresh parsley or cilantro
1 tsp. cumin
dash of ground ginger
1/2 tsp. salt
1 clove garlic, minced
2 cups grated Mexican blend cheese (or any yellow cheese)
2 oz. sliced ripe olives
1/2 cup diced green peppers
additional salsa and sour cream, and chopped tomatoes for garnish

In food processor combine beans, salsa, parsley, garlic, and spices and process until smooth. Spread this over the crust. Top with cheese, olives, and green peppers. Bake at 425 degrees for about 12 minutes or until golden brown. Serve with additional salsa, sour cream and chopped tomatoes. Serves about 4 as a main dish.

I hope you will try this for a new twist on pizza.

    I just bookmarked this to make soon.

    Black beans are the only bean my son likes and I’m always looking for a way to incorporate them into our meals.
