BBQ Black Bean Pizza

I was inspired by Jennifer's pizza a few weeks ago when I saw her using black beans on a pizza. The black beans were really good and "meaty". Baking them drew out some of their moisture and made them nice and chewy!

  • 1 TJ's whole wheat dough ball
  • 1/2 cup TJ's BBQ sauce
  • 1/2 cup black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 cup broccoli
  • 3/4 cup shredded red fat cheddar cheese

Preheat oven to 500 degrees.

Press out dough onto a greased baking sheet. Top with sauce, cheese, black beans and broccoli or toppings of your choice. Bake at 500 degrees for 8 minutes, reduce temp to 350 degrees and bake for an additional 8 minutes. Cool 5 minutes before slicing and serving.

The pumpkin cheesecake from last night was phenomenal. It cut beautifully and also had the perfect amount of holiday spice. I'm thankful there was one small piece left for today :o)

I'm also so happy that we rearranged the family room a bit to fit the tree in. Last year we placed the tree in the dining room and it just didn't seem as warm and inviting. Andy was super sweet to rethink our family room layout and did a great job at decorating the tree!!
