Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Grease a 14-inch round baking stone, 12-inch pizza pan, or large baking sheet; set aside. Roll Whole Grain Pizza Crust dough on a lightly floured surface into a 12-inch circle. Transfer to the prepared baking stone. Prick the dough all over with a fork. Bake for 6 to 8 minutes or until the crust is lightly browned.

  • Lightly brush 1 inch of the edge of the hot crust with oil. Spread salsa over crust to within 1 inch of the edge. Top with black beans, bell pepper, and, if desired, jalapeño pepper; sprinkle with cheese.

  • Bake for 6 to 8 minutes more or until the cheese is melted and the toppings are heated through.


Tip: Because hot chile peppers, such as jalapeños, contain volatile oils that can burn your skin and eyes, avoid direct contact with chiles as much as possible. When working with chile peppers, wear plastic or rubber gloves. If your bare hands do touch the chile peppers, wash your hands well with soap and water.
