Mexican Pizza Recipe
  • 1    cup   canned black beans, rinsed
  • 1/2   cup   coarsely chopped jarred roasted red peppers
  • 1      garlic clove
  • 1    tablespoon   chili powder
  •     Kosher salt
  • 1    pound   whole-wheat pizza dough
  •     Cornmeal, for dusting
  • 1    cup   shredded low-fat Monterey Jack cheese (3 ounces)
  • 1/2   cup   grape tomatoes, halved
  • 1/4   cup   pitted black olives, sliced
  • 1      scallion, thinly sliced
  • 1    cup   shredded butter lettuce
  • 3    tablespoons   reduced-fat sour cream
Set a pizza stone on the bottom of the oven and preheat the oven to 450 degrees. In a food processor, combine the black beans with the roasted red peppers, garlic clove, and chili powder and puree until smooth. Season with salt.
Stretch the pizza dough to a 12-inch round and transfer to a cornmeal-dusted pizza peel. Spread the black-bean puree on top, leaving a 1/2-inch border. Sprinkle with the cheese, tomatoes, olives, and scallion.
Slide the pizza onto the preheated stone and bake for 12 minutes, until the bottom is crisp and the cheese is bubbling. Transfer the pizza to a work surface and top with the lettuce and dollops of the sour cream. Cut into 4 or 6 wedges and serve at once.
