Mexican Vegetable Pizza

Mexican vegetable pizza… doesn’t this sound really cool?

I was always a bit hesitant to make this recipe, since I thought it required a lot of canned vegetables and beans which are not easily available in my nearby market. Then, I came across this amazing recipe which is made with home-made refined beans, salsa and some colourful peppers.

Cooking Time:  25 mins

Serves: 8

Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup Tomatoes chopped
  • 1/2 cup Onions chopped
  • 3 tbsp Olives sliced
  •  1/2 cup Cream
  • 1/4 tsp Ground Cinnamon Ground
  • 1/4 cup Green Chillies
  • 1/2 tsp Cumin Ground
  • 1/2 cup Pepper (Green) chopped
  • 1/2 cup Corn (thawed)
  • 1 tsp Chilli Powder
  • 1 tbsp Water
  • 1 cup Salsa
  • 1 cup Cheese (shredded)
  • 1 loaf Baked Italian Bread
  • 1 cup Black Beans (rinsed and drained)

  Method

  • In a pan, combine chopped onions, cinnamon, cumin powder, chilli powder, cinnamon powder and water.
  • Cover the pan and cook the mixture for 4-5 minutes.
  • Switch off the flame and combine chillies and beans to the mixture.
  • Blend half bean mixture in a blender till it is grounded.
  • Lay this pureed mixture on the Italian bread.
  • Also, spread salsa sauce on the bread.
  • Garnish the bread with shredded cheese and left over bean mixture.
  • Lay the green pepper, tomatoes, corn, olives and left over cheese.
  • Bake the bread at 450 degree F in a microwave for ten minutes.
  • Make sure the bread’s crust is golden brown in colour.
  • Finally top the pizza with (sour) cream.

My Tip

*Keep the vegetables crunchy and colourful.

* Use sour cream for a better taste.

* You can use frozen corn also.
