Recipe from a Reader
Black Bean Pizza

You can spread this flavourful mixture on store bought pizza crust or pita

bread. Use any leftovers for a quick lunch later.


1 15oz can black beans, drained and rinsed 3 green onions, finely chopped 1 cup salsa (up to 1/2 cup more if desired) 1 cup shredded old cheddar cheese or jalapeno flavoured cheese


  1. In a medium sized bowl combine the black beans, green onions and salsa.
  2. Spread an even layer, not too thick, over the pre-made pizza crust and sprinkle with cheese.
  3. Place in oven at 400F until cheese has melted.
Store any leftover bean mixture in a sealed container for later use. (If using pita bread be sure to oven toast the pita until it has dried out a bit, or is just crispy, as the salsa makes the mixture wet and will slowly soak through the bread.)
