Black Bean Pizza.

A healthy way to enjoy a homemade pizza with a southwestern kick. Creamy avocado, sweet corn and hearty black beans play counterpoint to the kick of chili powder, cumin, and scallions.


  • 1 (15 oz.) can black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 avocado, diced
  • ½ cup chopped scallions
  • 4 plum tomatoes, chopped
  • 1 cup corn
  • ¼ tsp. black pepper
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. chili powder
  • 1 tsp. cumin
  • 16 oz. whole-wheat pizza dough
  • 1 cup shredded reduced-fat sharp cheddar


  1. Preheat the oven to 450ºF and place an empty baking sheet on the middle rack.
  2. In a medium bowl, combine everything except for the pizza dough and cheese. Set aside.
  3. Working on a lightly floured surface, roll the pizza dough into a 13″ circle and crimp the edges slightly to form a lip at the edge of the crust. Transfer to warmed baking sheet. Top with black bean mixture, sprinkle with the cheese and bake until the crust is golden brown (20 minutes). Slice and serve.
