Mexican Style Veggie Pizza featuring Better Bean Co. Beans

Mexican Style Veggie Pizza Featuring Better Bean

Pizza is hands down one of my favorite foods to eat. I always try to make my homemade pizza full of wholesome ingredients and piled high with veggies. This way I can calm my craving with the satisfaction of knowing I am getting an abundance of nutrients.

I was especially excited when Better Bean Co. asked me to create a special recipe using their beans. I knew pizza would be the perfect pairing for their beans. Better Bean Co. makes a variety of beans that are small batch, packed in BPA free containers, low in sodium and best of all, family owned. I opted for the Cuban style beans to spread over my pizza. I really like the flavors of Better Bean Co. beans because they add a touch of seasoning while letting the other flavors in the dish shine. Better Bean Co.’s beans can be added to tacos, nachos, soups or whatever your heart desires. Check out their website for more great recipes and to locate a store near you.

This meatless Mexican style veggie pizza gets topped with fresh ingredients like avocado, tomato, onion and cilantro. I used a shredded Chihuahua cheese–the kind you find in quesadillas, but mozzarella works just as well. Forget the takeout and make this uber healthy vegetable based pizza tonight!
