Southwestern Style Black Bean Pizza (Vegetarian)

It has been a while since I've posted a recipe on here, and so I thought I would share a great Mexican pizza recipe that has become a family favorite and that is pretty simple to whip out quickly.  It also will be a great meatless option for Fridays in lent.
1 bag Trader Joe's Pizza dough (or your favorite recipe, enough to make (1) 12 to 16-inch crust)

For the black bean "pizza sauce":
1 - 15 ounce can Black Beans, drained
1 - 15 oz jar salsa
1 tsp** Mexican Spice Mix (I used Penzey's Arizona dreaming)

**adjust to fit your taste and spice level

Pizza toppings:

1/2 cup chopped tomato (about 1 small)
2/3 cup chopped red bell pepper (1 small)
1 11 0z can Southwest Style corn (or regular niblets would also work)
8 ounces mexican style cheese (grated)
1 cup shredded lettuce
Sour cream
Juice of 1 lime

Follow instructions on pizza crust by taking it out of the fridge and letting it come to room temperature (20 minutes to an hour.)  You also want to preheat your oven and (if you have one) pizza stone to 450.  If you don't have a pizza stone, you can use a cookie sheet.

While the dough is warming up, you can begin to prep the black bean "pizza sauce" which is actually more like a black bean paste.  Combine 1/2 the jar of salsa and the drained beans in a pan and cook until the beans are soft.  Add additional salsa if the mixture becomes too dry (You will probably need to use almost the entire jar of the salsa.)

Once the beans are soft and the salsa cooked down, use a potato masher to mash the mixture into a paste:

Set the paste aside and shape dough to a flat circle on a lightly floured surface.  I actually roll my dough out on floured parchment paper to make it easier to transfer onto the pizza stone.

Spread the bean mixture onto the crust and top with drained corn:

Add chopped tomatos and peppers and top with cheese:

Carefully transfer pizza to your pizza stone (or baking sheet) inside preheated oven:

 Bake for 10-12 minutes:

After removing pizza from oven, allow it to stand about 10 minutes and then top with lettuce, sour cream and lime juice:

Just like a little bean burrito pizza style!

  1. This bench would be perfect on my front porch!

  2. I would put this on my patio next to the pool

  3. My front porch. :) For when spring finally arrives!

  4. I just bought a new house and this would look great on my front walkway!

  5. This looks incredible! Thank you for the recipe. With all the ways moms try to remain conscientious of their finances, one of the greatest joys is stumbling upon little ways to save big when you least expect it. We just stopped by to let you know about Dorco. We're a manufacturer of high quality shaving systems, cartridges and disposable razors for men and women.

  6. You've done a nice job. Being that the article was several years ago, I'm sure you've put some good use to it. Can you tell me which Ikea cabinets you used for the base? I'm trying to do the exact same thing for a base in my laundry room.

  7. They are Ikea kitchen base cabinets. They only make one type.. AKRUM. (You only customize them by changing the door/drawer style.) But in this case, I just bought base cabinets without any doors. My cabinets are "single door" style with 2 shelves.. I only added a single shelf in the middle to make the cubbies. Your choice of cabinet width will depend on how wide your space (and laundry baskets) are.

  8. I would put this out in our backyard near the garden & hummingbird/Oriole feeder station.

  9. We got a new shed last year and it'd look fabuloso in front of it :D

  10. I love it!!! Just Beautiful!
