Paleo Mexican Pizza

The husband and I just got back from a trip to San Francisco. We had a fantastic time eating and drinking. Believe it or not, towards the end of the trip, I started missing fruits and veggies! We had so many sandwiches, burgers, fries, drinks, that I just needed a break!

On the way home I made the husband stop off at the grocery store to pick up some fresh fruits and veggies. I need to get home (after a 5 hour flight and 2 hour commute) and juice! I came home and made an Orange, Apple, and Ginger Juice and a Green Citrus Monster. I’ve been drinking a glass of each every day and feel oh-so-healthy.

Dinner has been pretty healthy too since our return. We’ve been trying to go Paleo, but mainly just eating more fruits and veggies and less carbs. So, for dinner tonight, I browsed the great internet looking for yummy recipes. I found recipes for Paleo pizza, but most of them had beef crusts. Wanting something vegetarian, I kept hunting. Then I came across a Black Bean Crust Pizza – perfect! I was craving Mexican food, so I was going to make mine a Mexican style crust, rather than the Italian seasoned version in the recipe.

Watch your husband eat the whole thing in less time than it took to make! ;)

We ended up eating the pizza with forks because my crust was too creamy. I did add a little water while blending the crust together and I guess that made it a bit too creamy. Don’t be me and have some patience and let it combine naturally! The hubby and I were completely full after eating the pie. It’s a great quick meal and you could easily change up the toppings. I’ll definitely be making it again, especially with the Avocado Margarita!

Enjoy!
