Ingredients

  • 1 batch whole wheat pizza dough
  • Whole wheat flour for rolling out the crust
  • 1 3/4 cups chunky salsa
  • 1 15- ounce can no-added salt black beans drained
  • 1 cup shredded Mexican cheese
  • 1/3 cup corn I used frozen, but feel free to use low-sodium canned or fresh
  • Optional: any additional pre-cooked vegetables cut into bite-sized pieces

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 425F. Place pizza stone in oven while it preheats. Meanwhile, roll out dough on a clean, floured surface to your desired thickness.
  • Once oven is preheated, carefully place rolled out dough onto preheated pizza stone. Alternatively, you can use a baking sheet, but no need to pre-heat the baking sheet.
  • Spread salsa evenly over crust, followed by cheese, beans, and corn (you may end up not using all of the beans). If using additional veggies add them on now. Fold edges of dough over to form the crust.
  • Place pizza in pre-heated oven and cook 20-25 minutes, or until bottom of pizza crust is a golden brown (or longer if you prefer crispier pizza).
  • Remove from oven and slice into 8 equal pieces. Enjoy!
