Chicken and Black Bean Pizza

Chicken, black beans and cilantro.  On a pizza.  What's not to love about this?

Chicken and Black Bean Pizza
Inspired by this Pillsbury Bake-off recipe

  • 1 boneless, skinless chicken breast
  • garlic powder
  • pizza crust for 1 pizza
  • 1/2 cup thick & chunky salsa
  • 1 (15 oz.) can black beans, drained
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1/4 t. cumin
  • chopped onion
  • green or red pepper strips
  • 1-1/2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
  1. Sprinkle chicken breast with garlic powder and broil for 15-18 minutes, or until done, turning halfway. (or cook on your George Foreman Grill)
  2. When cool, dice chicken.
  3. In medium bowl, combine salsa, chicken, black beans, cilantro and cumin; mix well.
  4. Bake pizza crust for 5-7 minutes; remove from oven and spread bean and salsa mix evenly over pizza crust.
  5. Top with onion, pepper strips, and cheese.
  6. Bake at 400° for 15-20 minutes or until crust is golden and cheese is melted.
  7. To serve, garnish with sour cream and guacamole (or avocado). 

Makes one pizza.

    I like to use a pizza crust I make in my bread machine, but you can also use a packaged crust mix or a pre-made crust you can find in the store. My bread machine recipe makes enough dough for 2 pizzas so I just double the recipe.  One chicken breast also seems to be enough for two pizzas.

    The ingredients can be varied to suit your own tastes. Mushrooms and green onions are really good on this.
