a great, easy meal that’s quick, cheap, and you can eat one handed 🙂

Growing up, we had “Mexican Anything” nights. If you had cheese, salsa, and a packet of taco seasoning, you could figure out something to eat. I’ve outgrown taco seasoning packets in favor of cumin, chili powder, and oregano, but the theory still applies. Once we had discovered the best homemade pizza crust recipe around and sweet corn came in season, this quickly became one of our favorite easy meals. I created the “recipe” (if you can call it that) from ingredients we had laying around, but you can adjust to your taste buds’ liking. I think the seasonings, corn, and black beans make it, though!

Mexican Pizza
Basic Pizza Dough (this is our favorite, but you can buy store bought or use your own favorite recipe)
Tomato Sauce
Cheddar Cheese
Green Bell Pepper
Black Beans
Sweet Corn
Chili Powder
Roll our pizza dough and bake at 375-400 degrees until outside is firm (about 10 minutes or so for most recipes). Spread tomato sauce on pizza, and sprinkle oregano, chili powder, and cumin over to taste (of the three, the only one that will make this pizza spicy is chili powder, so use a mild variety or a little less if you prefer a mild flavor). Add diced onion, diced bell pepper, rinsed black beans, and frozen or fresh sweet corn. Sprinkle cheddar cheese over it all. Bake for an additional 25(ish) minutes.
You won’t regret it.
