Gratitude Monday -- Beanizza Edition

I had an idea recently for bean pizza. I wanted pizza, but nothing too heavy. I went looking and discovered that yes, bean pizza does exist in the wild.
This was good as it gave me a solid basis to ignore when I made my own.
Also, I wanted to know if Robin Hood Gluten Free flour was good for pizza crust.
It is the best.
The first one I tried was kale and kidney bean with two kinds of goat cheese.
It was very good.
For Christmas I made baked bean pizza with bacon and mushroom.
We only stopped eating it because it was gone.
My husband loves these pizzas even more than I do and for that I am grateful.
Yesterday I decided to make another version of the kale and kidney bean. I used regular dairy mozzarella and some honey goat cheese on it along with mushroom, onion, and bell peppers.
I am grateful it turned out so well. It is filling and healthy and fun to make and I am grateful for that, too.

I am sure you are curious.
This is kale and kidney bean beanizza:

Your ingenuity never ceases to amaze me, and it always looks and sounds so delicious!

Why thank you, Messymimi.

That looks scrumptious. You're such a creative cook. And you cracked me up with "This was good as it gave me a solid basis to ignore when I made my own."

Leah J. Utas said...

Thanks, Hilary.

Eating healthy can be hard when we are confronted by all kinds of bad foods. Is the bean taking the place of a tomato sauce?

Leah J. Utas said...

Tabor, no. I have tomato paste on it. The bean is the protein.

I have to tell you that I first read the title as BeaRnizza which I would have expected to have quite an interesting history.
"a solid basis to ignore" is exactly what I need.

Mary Anne, I create better when I have something to thumb my nose at.

DJan, I recommend.
