1 can (15 ounces) black beans

1 package (1 ounce) taco seasoning

1 cups shredded Mexican cheese blend

2-3 Roma tomatoes, chopped

4 ounces chopped lettuce

4 ounces sour cream

2 teaspoons hot pepper sauce

1 tablespoon chopped cilantro

Tortilla chips

Avocado, optional

1 lime, juiced

Heat oven to 400 degrees.

Roll out pizza dough and sprinkle the corn meal on one side. Flip the dough over and place it on a baking sheet, corn meal side down. Bake 8-10 minutes until the crust becomes a light brown.

In the meantime pour the black beans and taco seasoning into a sauce pan over medium heat. Once the beans have warmed throughout mash them up using a potato masher and set aside.

Take crust out of the oven and evenly spread over the bean mixture like you would a pizza sauce. Then top the entire pizza with cheese. Place pizza back in the oven for 7 minutes or until all the cheese has melted and crust becomes a darker brown. While the pizza continues baking, mix the sour cream and hot sauce in a small bowl until well combined. Place into a resealable bag and snip the corner edge off to make it easy to pipe over the pizza.

Remove the pizza from the oven and top evenly with tomatoes, lettuce, cilantro, tortilla chips, avocado and lime juice. Pipe the kicked up sour cream over the entire pizza in a back and forth motion and enjoy!

Serves four to six.

Cook's note: Meat can also be added, just cook the meat according to the taco seasoning instructions. If you choose to do this do not add the taco seasoning with the black beans.
