When you have fresh pita bread on hand—or any other flatbread, for that matter—homemade pizza is just minutes away. Topped with a tasty corn and black bean combo, these Tex-Mex pita pizzas are assembled after the pita crusts have been crisped in the oven so they won’t get soggy.

We’ve kept the topping mild so it will appeal to adults and kids alike, but you can always adjust the heat level with the salsa you choose. To serve, cut each pizza into wedges or place whole on individual plates to be eaten with forks and knives.

pita pizzas

Ingredients

  • 1 cup chopped onion
  • 1 cup chopped bell pepper, any color
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • ½ teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 15-ounce can black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 cup fresh or frozen corn kernels
  • 6 6- to 7-inch whole wheat pita rounds
  • 1 cup chopped avocado
  • 1 cup oil-free salsa
  • 2 tablespoons snipped fresh cilantro

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper.
  2. In a large saucepan, bring ¼ cup of water to a boil. Add the onion, sweet pepper, garlic, and cumin; cook over medium-low heat for 10 minutes or until the onion is tender, stirring occasionally and adding additional water, 1 to 2 tablespoons at a time, as needed to prevent sticking. Stir in the beans and corn. Cook for 5 minutes more or until flavors are blended and beans and corn are heated through, stirring occasionally.
  3. Meanwhile, place the pita rounds on the prepared baking sheets. Bake for 10 to 15 minutes or until lightly toasted.
  4. Mash the avocado. Spread pita rounds with avocado and bean mixture. Top with salsa and sprinkle with cilantro.

I’m relatively new to being WFPB so I come to this site often to find quick and easy recipes. THIS ONE WILL GO DOWN ON MUST HAVE OFTEN list! Sooooo, so tasty! I didn’t have any avocado or cilantro but I can’t imagine how much more delish that will be when I do! I used blended black beans instead and I tried the “sour cream” recipe here. I think I may have it again tonight for dinner!
