  • 1 cup water
  • 1 tablespoon yeast, active dry
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 2 cup flour, all-purpose
  • 1 cup flour, whole wheat
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoon olive oil
  • 15 ounce pinto beans, canned
  • 8 ounce cheddar cheese
  • 1 medium tomato, red
  • 1 medium avocado
  • 8 3/4 ounce corn, canned

Serve With

  • 2 cup strawberries


  • Pour warm water (80-90° F) into a medium mixing bowl. Sprinkle yeast over water and let stand for 5 minutes or until foamy. Add sugar, flours, salt and oil to bowl and stir with a mixer or by hand until a dough is formed. Knead using a dough hook or by hand for 5-8 minutes or until it forms a sticky ball. Cover and let rise for 30 minutes.
  • Roll dough out onto pizza pan. If dough shrinks back, let rest for 5-10 minutes then roll again. Repeat until it stretches the entire size of the pan.
  • Preheat oven to 400°F. Bake for 5 minutes.
  • Drain and rinse beans. Add to a food processor and pulse to puree. Spread onto semi-cooked pizza crust. Shred cheese and sprinkle evenly over beans. Bake 5-7 minutes or until cheese has melted.
  • Meanwhile, chop tomato, dice avocado and drain corn.
  • Cut pizza into 8 slices. Top with tomatoes, avocado and corn as desired. Serve with sliced strawberries on the side. (Serving size: 2 slices pizza, 1/2 cup strawberries)
