Servings: 4 servings

     15-ounce can  black beans, rinsed and drained
     tablespoons  snipped fresh cilantro or parsley
     tablespoons  salsa
     teaspoon  ground cumin

Spread bean mixture over hot crust. Sprinkle with Cojack or cheddar cheese, chopped red sweet pepper, and green onion. Bake about 10 minutes more or until cheese melts and pizza is heated through.
In a small bowl combine sour cream and 2 tablespoons salsa. Serve pizza with sour cream mixture. Makes 4 servings.
