    Units: US | Metric

    • 1 (1 lb) whole wheat pizza dough (I get mine from Trader Joe's)
    • 1/2 cup organic spaghetti sauce (any sauce of your choice)
    • 1/2 lb ground turkey (cooked and seasoned with taco seasoning)
    • 1/2 cup organic black beans (TJ's)
    • 1/4 cup frozen corn (I use organic frozen corn from TJ's)
    • 1/4 cup frozen bell peppers (red, green, and yellow...from TJ's again)
    • 1 -2 cup shredded colby-monterey jack cheese (use what you have or what you prefer.)


    1. 1
      Preheat oven to 450 degrees (or according to your dough directions).
    2. 2
      Follow directions for dough and spread out on a parchment lined baking sheet (the parchment helps avoid sticking). I use a 9x15 baking sheet because it gives a great edge/lip for the crust, and holds all the yummy toppings on the pizza with no spills, but whatever you have will be fine. I'm sure you could do this on a stone, as well.
    3. 3
      Once dough is prepared, Bake dough in the oven for 5-8 minutes (or until dough is starting to brown). This helps make sure everything cooks through :).
    4. 4
      Remove dough from the oven, and spread a thin layer of sauce on the pizza, leaving 1/2 of an inch space all around for crust allowance.
    5. 5
      Evenly spread a layer of cooked ground turkey meat (seasoned with taco seasoning), frozen veggies and black beans. *Also, you could cook the veggies and beans in with the meat to add extra flavor!
    6. 6
      Top with as much shredded cheese as you like.
    7. 7
      Place pizza in oven for 10-15 minutes, or until bottom and crust are golden brown, and cheese is melted. *Time may vary depending on your oven and type of dough you use. Keep a watchful eye so it doesn't over bake =).
    8. 8
      Other yummy toppings for this pizza are: Spinach, mushrooms, olives, goat cheese (so good!), tomatoes -- the possibilities are endless, really. Don't be afraid to add new things to this recipe. It's pizza! Everyone LOVES pizza, right?!

      Yum--great idea for a different pizza! We served it with cilantro and sour cream on the side, and it was delicious. We also put tomatoes and onions on it.

      Yum, yum, yummy!! I was a little sceptical at first but decided to give it a try. I added flax seed meal to the outside of the crust and had myself a pizza that pleased the entire family... we all had seconds!! Thanks for posting, I'll definately be making this again!
