15ouncecan refried black beans(or regular refried beans) - you'll use half
1/4salsa(use your favorite; a peach-mango tomato salsa is mine)
1flat bread round or blind-baked pizza crust(such as Boboli*)
2cupschopped vegetables(see suggestions below)
1cupof a grated melty cheese(such as quesadilla or fontina)
Preheat oven to 400°F.
Heat 1/2 can of refried beans in a small sauce pot over medium/low heat, until soft and stirrable. Add the salsa and reduce heat to low, stirring occasionally to keep the black beans from drying out.
Place the pizza round on a baking pan. Spread the black bean sauce over the crust, leaving a finger-hold's width along the edges (an offset spatula or sandwich spreader works really well here).
Sprinkle the vegetables over the sauce evenly, followed by the cheese.
Bake for 8-10 minutes (or according to the instructions of your pizza crust - the toppings will be okay, whatever the length).
Top with the cilantro, and serve immediately.
* You can absolutely use your fresh pizza dough here - just treat the whole thing as you normally would a tomato-sauce-based pizza. The pre-baked rounds are super convenient for weeknight meals. Suggested toppings: bell peppers green chilis red onions green onions black olives green olives jalapenos fresh cherry tomatoes corn avocado mangos herbs, such as oregano and thyme
