Healthy Mexican Pizza Recipe

Ingredients
  

  • 1 can of black beans drained completely
  • 1/2 red onion chopped
  • 1/2 yellow pepper chopped
  • 3 tsp chili powder
  • 3/4 tbsp cumin
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 tsp Cholula hot sauce
  • 2 large tomatoes seeded and diced
  • 1 jalapeño pepper diced
  • 1 garlic clove minced
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 tbsp taco sauce
  • 1/4 cup chopped green onions
  • 1 cup freshly shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 cup freshly shredded pepper jack cheese
  • 2 tbsp chopped cilantro or parsley
  • 1 roll of pizza dough

Instructions
 

  • Begin by preparing the tomato mixture. In a bowl, mix together the diced tomatoes, jalapeño, 1 clove of minced garlic, and a pinch of salt and pepper. Set this mixture aside to allow the flavors to meld.
  • Take the drained black beans and place them in a separate bowl. Add 2 tsp of Cholula hot sauce and use a fork to mash the beans to your desired consistency.
  • To the mashed black beans, add the cumin, chili powder, chopped red onions, chopped yellow pepper, and a pinch of salt and pepper. Mix these ingredients together until well combined. Your flavorful bean mixture is now ready.
  • Preheat your oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit (200 degrees Celsius).
  • On a non-stick baking sheet, roll out your pizza crust. If you’re using pre-made dough like Pillsbury pizza dough, this step will be a breeze.
  • Using a pastry brush, spread 2 tbsp of taco sauce evenly over the surface of the pizza crust, leaving a small border around the edges.
  • Gently spoon the prepared bean mixture onto the taco sauce-covered crust. With the back of the spoon, carefully spread the bean mixture, ensuring an even distribution while still leaving that border intact.
  • Now, evenly sprinkle the tomato mixture over the bean layer, followed by the shredded cheddar and pepper jack cheese.
  • To add an extra kick of flavor and color, sprinkle the chopped green onions and your choice of cilantro or parsley over the cheese.
  • Place the pizza in the preheated oven and bake for 20-25 minutes, or until the crust is golden and the cheese has melted to a gooey perfection.
  • Once baked, remove the Mexican pizza from the oven and allow it to rest for about 5 minutes. This allows the flavors to meld and makes slicing easier.
  • Cut your pizza into slices, serve, and savor every bite of this delightful and health-conscious Mexican pizza creation.
