Ordering pizza is a nice break for the cook in the kitchen once in awhile but be careful not to get seduced by the convenience! Sure it’s nice to make a phone call and have dinner arrive at your door 20 minutes later, especially on a busy weeknight. But did you know you could make your own pizza in the same time it takes for you to make the make the call and get the delivery? Try our Smoky Corn & Black Bean Pizza. It’s finished in 30 minutes flat. It uses convenient pantry items like canned black beans and barbeque sauce so you can get it done quickly and by making your own pie, you’ll avoid the tons of fat and sodium you get from a takeout version.
