Spinach Black Bean Pita Pizzas

Have you ever tried pita bread as a base for pizza?  If not, give it a try.  Not only is it delicious, it’s easy and affordable.  Of course you can use a pre-made pizza crust instead.  This recipe makes 4 pita bread pizzas but this recipe is easily doubled.

What you’ll need:

  • 1 can black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1/2 cup salsa
  • 1 cup shredded Mexican cheese
  • 2 teaspoons chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 1/3 cup chopped cilantro
  • 1-2 cups chopped spinach
  • 4 pita bread rounds (look for whole-wheat, high-fiber varieties)

What you’ll do:

  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
  • In a small bowl, mash the black beans with the chili powder, cumin, cilantro and onion until it’s a paste-like consistency.
  • Spread the black bean mixture over the pita bread rounds.
  • Top with salsa, spinach and cheese.
  • Bake for 10 to 15 minutes or until the cheese is melted and it’s heated through.
