Ingredients:
whole wheat pizza dough (I use the canned pizza crust)
2 (15 oz) cans black beans, rinsed and drained
1 Tbsp olive oil
salt and black pepper, to taste
1/4 chopped cilantro
1 tsp hot sauce
2 tsp cumin
1 medium red pepper, seeded and finely chopped
4-5 green onions, finely chopped
1-2 cups shredded sharp cheddar cheese
chopped tomatoes
shredded lettuce
sour cream or light ranch for drizzling

Directions:
1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees (or what pizza dough can says). Roll out the whole wheat pizza dough.
2. In a food processor, combine beans, oil, salt and black pepper to taste, cilantro, hot sauce, and cumin. Blend until it reaches your desired consistency – preferably somewhat smooth.
3. Spread bean mixture on pizza dough evenly as you can. Top with red bell pepper, green onions, and cheese.
4. Bake for 8-12 minutes or until crust is golden brown and toppings are bubbling.
5. Top with tomatoes, lettuce and if desired, drizzle with sour cream or ranch. Serve.
