Black Bean Pizza

So this sounds weird and my roommates used to mock me for it, but it is WONDERFUL!!  Everyone who I have made try it, loves it!  Enjoy!

Pizza Crust: (You can use premade crusts or you can make this recipe that is really easy.)
1 TBS (or 1 packet) yeast
1 tsp sugar (white or brown)
1 cup hot water (but be careful, too warm will kill the yeast)
2 TBS oil (I prefer olive oil, but vegetable oil works)
1 tsp salt
2 1/2 cups flour

Mix the yeast, sugar, and water together, and let it sit for 5 minutes.  After it starts to bubble and has sat for the 5 minutes, add the rest of the ingredients and mix well.  Put the crust on a greased pan, and cook for 3 minutes at 450 degrees.  This will allow the dough to rise.  Add the toppings and cook for 10 more minutes at the temperature.  

Black Bean Sauce: (use this instead of normal pizza sauce)
1 can of black beans (partially drained--completely drained is too dry and not drained at all is runny)
1 tsp cumin
1 tsp garlic salt
1/4 cup salsa

Blend all of the ingredients together in a blender.  Pour some on top of the pizza crust, add salsa on top of that, cheese on top of that, and then grilled chicken on top of that.  Bake for 10 minutes at 45o degrees.
