Ingredients

  • 1 cup cornmeal
  • 1-1/3 cups water, divided
  • 6 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese, divided
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1 small green pepper, julienned
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 can (8 ounces) tomato sauce
  • 8 fresh mushrooms, sliced
  • 3/4 teaspoon dried basil

  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 can (15 ounces) black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1-1/2 cups (6 ounces) shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese, divided

Directions

In a small bowl, combine the cornmeal and 2/3 cup water. In a large saucepan, bring the remaining water to a boil. Gradually whisk in the cornmeal mixture; cook and stir until thickened.

Meanwhile, in a large skillet, saute the onion, green pepper and garlic in oil until tender. Add the tomato sauce, mushrooms, basil, oregano and pepper. Cover and cook for 5 minutes. Add the beans.
Sprinkle 1/2 cup mozzarella and 2 tablespoons Parmesan cheese over crust. Top with the bean mixture and remaining cheeses. Sprinkle with olives. Bake at 375° for 15-20 minutes or until cheese is melted. Yield: 4-6 servings.
