{Recipe} ~ Sante Fe Summer BBQ Pizza

Something about the end of busy season and the start of summer has gotten me completely out of a routine in the kitchen. I used to be so good about grocery shopping for the week and trying new recipes. But these days, with traveling, work events, and intern happy hour that turn into happy hours, I haven't been eating very healthy.

So after my quiet weekend at home, I got out my meal planner and got my butt to the grocery store!

But for some reason, a weekend without pizza didn't sound right, so that's exactly what I whipped up Sunday night! This recipe was extremely easy and filling, even without any meat!

Sante Fe Summer BBQ Pizza
from Iowa Girl Eats
1/3 cup BBQ sauce (I used a combination of pizza sauce and BBQ sauce)
1 cup black beans, drained & rinsed
1 cup corn kernels
1 cup halved cherry tomatoes
1 cup mozzarella cheese
1/4 cup chopped cilantro
1 package pizza dough (from Trader Joe's)
Follow the directions on the package for the dough. Once the dough has risen, preheat the oven to 500 degrees. Spray a pizza pan with nonstick spray then spread the dough out into a large circle. Spread BBQ sauce evenly on top, then add black beans, corn, tomatoes, and cheese. Bake for 10 minutes or until cheese is golden brown. Let cook five minutes then slice. Sprinkle chopped cilantro on top before serving.
