What’s been keeping me well fed lately? My freezer! (And no, I don’t mean ice cream, though that is tempting.) I almost always have whole wheat pizza dough from Trader Joe’s in my freezer, and I also had a small container of Way Better than Canned Black Beans. These aren’t ordinary black beans; they are simmered with onion, garlic, and cilantro so they are packed with flavor.
I decided to make individual Latin-inspired pizzas with the seasoned beans, halved grape tomatoes, and mozzarella cheese. I threw the pizzas together quickly, and after just 10-15 minutes in the oven at 400F, dinner was served, with leftovers for lunches. When I made these beans back in January, I had no idea they would come in so handy – I need to make another batch soon.
