1 ball of pizza dough
1 15 ounce can of black beans, drained and rinsed
shredded cheddar cheese
1 tomato, diced
1 avocado diced (I omitted)
shredded lettuce or fresh baby spinach (I just garnished mine with fresh parsley)
Preheat oven - 475 F.
Prep pizza crust on the pan. Stretch ball of dough out to about 12-14 inches. Cook on lowest rack for 5 minutes. Slightly mash black beans in a bowl and add taco seasoning to taste. Top the taco sauce and then the beans and tomatoes*. Top with the cheddar cheese. Place back in oven for 9-11 minutes.
After pizza is cooked, top with a layer of sour cream, the lettuce, spinach or parsley and diced avocados.
*The original recipe calls for the tomatoes to be place on after the pizza is cooked, but I prefer mine heated with the pizza.
