Black Bean Nacho Pizza

Break out the napkins! This pie is an over-the-top, vegetarian concoction with black-bean spread, Jack cheese, tomatoes, scallions, olives and pickled jalapenos; it's part nacho, part pizza. For an even more decadent treat, serve with low-fat sour cream. Beer pairing: Spicy foods need spicy beers—go for an India Pale Ale (IPA). If you're not a hop-head, the malty sweetness of brown ales work well with the sweeter elements on the pizza.

I used a pre-made 14" whole wheat pizza crust and it worked just fine. Definitely a keeper!

Deeeelish :)

I made this pizza for the first time last night and my friends said that it was the best pizza they had ever had. Compliments coming to a girl who struggles to make brownies from the box, the praise must go to the recipe! I would suggest that when you make the black bean paste add some salsa to it and use a smaller grinder. The larger ones tend to have the paste stick to the sides. Otherwise perfectly simple recipe!


I am so pleased with how this pizza turned out! We are serious pizza eaters, and I was nervous about whether we would really enjoy it. It was well worth the effort! I skipped on the olives and jalapenos and added chicken which I had fried up with olive oil and garlic the night before to add flavor. I will be making this again!

Excellent Alternative to traditional pizza

Made this pizza for watching the Super Bowl. I am pretty particular about what goes on my pizza. However, the black bean sauce was excellent and I felt like I was eating a burrito and pizza at the same time. For cheese, I bought a bag of mixed smoked shredded cheeses. If I make this again, I might try to change up the veggies or maybe add some shredded chick or pork.

easy to customize

At first I wasn’t sure how it would taste because of the black bean mixture for sauce, but that was the most important ingredient for this dish. The mixture was great! I will definitely make this pizza again. Another bonus - it's meatless but filled with a lot of veggies.
