  • 1 package Whole wheat pizza dough I like Trader Joe's fresh pizza dough!
  • 4-5 Tbsp Barbecue sauce Try to get one with the least amount of sugar!
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 15 oz can black beans
  • 8 oz can corn
  • 1 red pepper diced
  • 1 small red onion diced
  • 1 Tbsp chili powder
  • 1 tsp olive oil


  • Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Spread out the dough on a pizza pan, spread the barbecue sauce on top
  • Heat a large pan over medium heat, add 1 tsp olive oil, black beans, diced red onion and chili powder - cook until heated through and onions begin to caramelize (5-10 min)
  • Spread black bean mixture over barbecue sauce
  • Sprinkle mozzarella cheese on top. Then sprinkle diced red pepper and corn on top of the cheese.
  • Bake in oven for 10-15 min (depending on pizza dough and heating instructions)
  • Remove from oven, drizzle 1 Tbsp barbecue sauce over the pizza. Serve and enjoy!




Top tips for making Barbecue Black Bean, Red Pepper, and Corn Pizza

  • Be sure to pre-heat your oven before cooking the pizza.
  • Use a whole wheat pizza dough for extra goodness. For store-bought refrigerated dough, let it sit it at room temperature for two hours prior to baking.
  • Use a barbecue sauce that is low in sugar.
  • If planning to freeze this pizza for future use before baking, place a piece of parchment on a metal pizza pan or heavy-duty piece of cardboard, assemble your pizza on the cardboard (or pan) and freeze altogether.
  • To make vegan, just substitute the mozzarella with a vegan cheese. You could also omit the cheese completely and it'll still taste great!
