Usually on Friday nights if we aren’t indulging in a restaurant, we order pizzas take out to relax in our cozy couch in front of our favorite tv shows. But after consuming so much calories and unhealthy bites and of course over eating, the after effect like bloating and lethargy take away all the fun from it. I end up feeling guilty and try to compensate for it the next day and it’s quite a task.
I have been adding more protein to my diet and so an idea crossed my mind to make a protein rich pizza crust so as to make it healthy and delicious and of course guilt free.
I spotted a can of black beans in my kitchen pantry and I thought of trying pizza crust with it. To make it quick I added black beans, eggs and little oil in the food processor and ground it smooth. Well, my intentions were to hide the black beans so that my family can enjoy the pizza without knowing that they are eating healthy. Then, in a mixing bowl I made soft dough out of all the ingredients and flattened the dough in a prepared cookie sheet. You can flatten the dough in the pizza sheet as well and place it in the middle rack of the preheated oven.
I could smell the deliciousness of the pizza but was skeptical if my family would like to replace the store bought pizza. I added their favorite toppings to the pizza crust and served them warm. Pizza was gone in just a few minutes, and I hardly got a bite to even taste it. Wow, that was quick. After sometime, they asked to bake this Black Beans Crust Pizza again for the coming Friday night instead of ordering it from any joint. With utmost contentment I baked another batch of Black Beans Crust Pizza in the same week and decided to share this recipe with you all.
Try it!!! I guarantee you will never go back to ordering any pizza anymore and that you will fall in love with this flavorsome and mouthwatering pizza forever.
