BBQ Black Bean Pizza


  • 2 cans black beans rinsed and drained(or sub an equal amount of previously cooked chicken for a BBQ chicken pizza)
  • 1/2 C barbeque sauce(homemade or look for one that has minimal ingredients)
  • 1 large onion(or 2 small), sliced or diced
  • 2 sweet peppers thinly sliced(I used red, but any color will work)
  • 2 tsp oil


Preheat oven to 425’F.

n a small frying pan heat the oil over medium heat.  Add the onions and cook for 4-5 minutes till softened.  Add in the sliced peppers and cook for another 5-10 minutes till the veggies are soft as they wont cook much in the oven.

Spread equally divided barbeque sauce on two prepared pizza crusts.  Sprinkle the already cooked onions and peppers evenly over both pizzas and then spread out the black beans evenly over both pizzas and then top with cheese.

Slide the pizzas directly onto the rack in the oven so that the bottom crisps up.  Bake at 425 degrees for 10-15 minutes until the bottom begins to turn golden and crispy and then broil just till the cheese on top gets golden brown and bubbles which should only take a couple minutes. You may have to switch racks in the middle to ensure both pizzas are done properly if you put them on two different racks.  Remove pizzas from the oven and cool for 5 minutes before slicing and serving.
