Southwestern Pizza

Yum!!! Its like nachos on a pizza crust and its healthy... you can't get better than that! I just made this dish on Monday night and it was a huge success in our house.

Makes: 3 Servings
Prep Time: 8 Minutes
Cook Time: 10 Minutes

Nonstick cooking spray
1 12 inch 100% whole-wheat pizza crust
1 cup of prepared tomato salsa
1 1/4 cups of reduced fat 2% mozzarella cheese
1 1/3 cups canned black beans, drained and rinsed
1 small sweet red pepper, seeded and thinly sliced (about 2/3 cup)
2 scallions, trimmed and thinly sliced
1/4 cup cilantro leaves for garnish (optional)

  1. Heat the oven to 450 degrees. Coat a baking sheet with cooking spray. Place crust on sheet and top with salsa, 1 cup of mozzarella, beans, sliced red pepper and scallions.
  2. Top pizza with remaining 1/4 cup of cheese
  3. Place pizza in the oven and bake 8 to 10 minutes or until cheese is melted. Remove from oven and garnish with cilantro if desired. Cut into 6 slices and serve.

** I added cumin to spice up this dish. It was a great touch.
