mexican pizza

last night, for "valentines day" my boyfriend and i decided to make dinner and watch a movie. (us making dinner means me making dinner and him doing the dishes..which he hasnt done yet) so i decided to make a mexican pizza of sorts...its a bit different than you would think though...

sorry, i didnt have a lot of time to take photos, i had a very hungry boyfriend!

im not a chef by any means so i like recipes that are easy to make and taste great.
this one definitely has both qualities!
you'll need:

pizza dough (i used the vegan pop can thin crust kind...its best a little crunchy)
1 tub cream cheese (tofutti)
1/4 cup cilantro
2 cloves garlic
1 tbsp lemon (or lime) juice
2/3 cup black beans (drained and run water through)
grape tomatoes
red onion
diced green onion
ripe avocado

preheat oven and bake pizza dough, til golden brown. let cool completely.
in a mixer, add cream cheese, cilantro, garlic and lemon juice and whip until smooth.
layer on pizza dough, then add black beans. then add everything else!

in case you were wondering, yes i eat avocado on just about everything. and i LOVE anything that resembles mexican food! maybe next time ill give you some diversity.


  1. another recipe I'll definitely be trying! Has he done the dishes yet? don't do them! DO.NOT.DO.THEM.

  2. schyler,
