Fast & Easy Vegetarian Recipe for Smoky Corn and Black Bean Pizza


  1. 1 plum tomato, diced
  2. 1 cup canned black beans, rinsed
  3. 1 cup fresh corn kernels (about 2 ears)
  4. 2 tablespoons cornmeal
  5. 1 pound prepared whole-wheat pizza dough
  6. 1/3 cup barbecue sauce
  7. 1 cup shredded mozzarella, preferably smoked mozzarella


  1. Preheat grill to medium.
  2. Combine tomato, beans and corn in a medium bowl. Sprinkle cornmeal onto a large baking sheet. Stretch the dough into about a 12-inch circle and lay it on top of the cornmeal, coating the entire underside of the dough.
  3. Transfer the crust from the baking sheet to the grill. Close the lid and cook until the crust is puffed and lightly browned on the bottom, 4 to 5 minutes.
  4. Using a large spatula, flip the crust. Spread barbecue sauce on it and quickly sprinkle with the tomato mixture and cheese. Close the lid; grill until the cheese is melted and the bottom of the crust is browned, 4 to 5 minutes.

Serves 6.

Be careful when grilling! We burned our crust :( Next time it will go in the oven :)

Sounds great! I am definitely going to try it, but since we don't have a grill and our grill pan isn't big enough, it'll go in the oven the old fashioned way.

I'm going to try this tonight, but I'm not sure if I'll be using my grill. It's really small and might not work for pizza. Either way, I know it will be great :)
