1/2 cup (2 ounces) shredded reduced-fat sharp cheddar cheese
1/2 cup (2 ounces) shredded Monterey Jack cheese
How to Make It
Preheat oven to 375°.
Place pizza crust on a baking sheet; bake at 375° for 5 minutes or until crisp.
Mash beans with a fork; combine beans and next 4 ingredients (beans through garlic) in medium bowl, stirring to combine. Spread bean mixture over crust, leaving a 1-inch border. Spoon salsa evenly over bean mixture; top with spinach and cilantro. Drizzle with hot sauce; sprinkle with cheeses. Bake at 375° for 15 minutes or until crust is lightly browned.
I love this recipe and it is one of our family weeknight staples. I use a store bought thin crust pizza and it turns out nice and crispy in this recipe. Even with the hot sauce, the recipe turns out pretty mild, so those who like it hot (like my hubby!) can add more hot sauce to their individual pieces. Highly recommend - you won't be disappointed!
A really nice, healthful meal. It is indeed better the next day. I used the whole package of spinach (hey, why not?). It's a little heavy on the onions, which remain crunchy -- not my favorite thing. I'd probably use 1/3 cup next time and/or chop them more finely.
I enjoyed this! Was only me so I cut the 10 oz crust in half as did the recipe (roughly). Used fresh spinach sauteed with olive oil, added chicken fajita strips (from the freezer section) chopped. Used fat free cheddar and colby-jack combo as those are what I had.
Next time I will mix the salsa into the bean mixture like someone else had suggested. It was dry where there was only black beans and no salsa. My pizza wasn't as thick and as decadent at the picture because I didn't really LOAD on the stuff, but next time will definitely use more cheese.
Think I'll make this more veggie by using shredded carrots, maybe some mexi or whole kernel corn.
