This easy, satisfying pizza feeds a crowd while using a small amount of lean, flavorful grass-fed beef. Add your favorite taco-style garnishes to top the pizza just after it comes out of the oven: green onions, cilantro, shredded lettuce and a drizzle of sour cream are all terrific.
- 1/2 pound ground grass-fed beef
- 3/4 cup fresh or frozen corn kernels
- 1 tablespoon chili powder
- 3/4 cup no-salt-added black beans or pinto beans (from a 15-ounce can), drained and rinsed
- 1 pound whole wheat pizza dough
- Canola spray oil
- 2/3 cup salsa, preferably medium or hot
- 3/4 cup shredded mild cheddar cheese
Preheat the oven to 450°F. Place beef in a large skillet over medium heat. Cook, breaking beef up, until browned, about 7 minutes. Stir in corn and chili powder, and cook until corn is warmed through. Stir in beans.
Place pizza dough on the lightly-oiled reverse side of a baking sheet and press or roll out until it is very thin, and you have an 11x15-inch oval, leaving a 1/2-inch border. Top evenly with beef mixture and sprinkle with cheese. Bake until crust is browned and crisp, and cheese is browned and bubbling, 15 to 20 minutes. Cut into 12 pieces and garnish as desired.
