Fresh Corn and Black Bean Pizza

Everybody loves pizza, but the saturated fat of most conventional versions is not a good thing for our arteries. Thatís where this fabulous Mexican-inspired version comes to the rescue: Great zesty taste with protein and heart-healthy fiber from black beans and corn makes this a pizza that your family will love and that you will love to serve.

1 plum tomato, diced
1 cup cooked or canned black beans, rinsed
Kernels from 2 ears fresh corn

1 cup shredded smoked mozzarella

1. Preheat oven to 450F. In a medium bowl, combine the tomato, beans, and corn.

Thank you.
It's easy to make your own pizza base, just use bread mix - it's ready in under a minute in your food processor and the best thing is: you can have a wholemeal pizza dough. (These are very hard to find).
