Vegetarian Tex-Mex Pantry Pizza
Prep time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 2-3 servings
  • 1 store-bought pizza crust
  • ½ cup salsa
  • ¼ cup pinto beans (or black beans)
  • ½ cup shredded Mexican blend cheese
  • ¼ cup chopped cherry tomatoes
  • 1 avocado
  • juice of 1 medium lime
  • ¼ cup cilantro, stems included
  • ½ tsp seasoned salt
  1. Prepare pizza crust according to package directions.
  2. Remove crust from oven and spread salsa evenly over crust. Layer beans on top of salsa, and then the cheese.
  3. Return to oven and bake about 5 minutes till cheese is melted. Broil an additional 2-3 minutes if you prefer your pizza more well-done.
  4. While pizza is in the oven, combine avocado, lime juice, cilantro, and seasoned salt in a blender or food processor. Blend until well combined, adding water or avocado oil as needed to thin to desired consistency. (I probably used ¼-1/3 cup water). Transfer mixture to a plastic bag and snip a corner to drizzle over pizza.
  5. Remove pizza from oven and top with chopped tomatoes, extra chopped cilantro, and the avocado sauce, if desired.
