Ingredients 

For the crumbled ground beef:

  • 1/2 pound lean ground beef
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • kosher salt and ground pepper

For the mashed black beans:

  • 15 ounce (can) black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1/3 cup jarred salsa
  • 1/4 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cumin

Other ingredients for the pizza:

  • 1 pound pizza dough
  • 1 cup shredded Monterey Jack cheese
  • 1/2 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese
  • chopped lettuce, tomatoes, green onions, black olives, salsa, cilantro and plain Greek yogurt or sour cream

Instructions

  • To make the crumbled ground beef, in a large skillet over medium high heat add the ground beef. Use a wooden spoon or spatula to break up the beef into small crumbles. Season the beef with the spices, salt and pepper. Cook the beef until it is done then pour it onto paper towels if there is any excess grease.
  • To make the mashed black beans, in a bowl mash together all of the ingredients with a potato masher until desired consistency is reached.
  • Preheat oven to 475 degrees. Stretch or roll the pizza dough out onto a prepared pizza stone or baking sheet lined with parchment paper and sprinkled with cornmeal. Spread the mashed black beans evenly on top of the pizza dough. Sprinkle half of the shredded cheese over the beans. Top with the crumbled ground beef and the rest of the shredded cheese. Bake the pizza on the middle rack of the oven for 10-12 minutes or until the crust is golden brown and the cheese is melted and bubbly. Remove from the oven and top with any or all of the listed toppings.
