  • Makes
    15-20 servings


  • 1 tube (13.8 ounces) refrigerated pizza crust
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 tablespoon canola oil
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped zucchini
  • 1 can (15 ounces) black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 can (14-1/2 ounces) Italian diced tomatoes, undrained
  • 1-1/2 cups shredded Mexican cheese blend, divided


  • Press dough into a greased 15x10x1-in. baking pan. Bake at 425° for 4-6 minutes or until crust just begins to brown.
  • Meanwhile, in a large skillet, saute onion and garlic in oil until tender. Add zucchini; cook and stir for 1 minute or until crisp-tender. Add the beans and tomatoes; bring to a boil. Cook, uncovered, for 2 minutes or until heated through; drain.

    This is an awesome recipe, my kids loved it. Also try adding boneless chicken, it is great either way.
