    meredith88 - I hope you are feeling much better after your surgery! Your pizza sounds great tonight.

    MEREDITH88 - I HOPE your surgery was a success and you are feeling better !
    We love beans of all kinds and I am trying to find ways to add them to our diet without extra fat and/or sodium .

    Observant - We've always used refried beans in the past on our Mexican pizzas. However I had jaw surgery 3 weeks ago and was on a soft food diet for 10 days and discovered a love for blended black beans instead of refried beans so we thought we'd try them on the pizza this time.

    mEREDITH88 - I like your idea of the beans instead of sauce on the pizza - I am keeping your recipe to try this weekend ! Thanks

    Friday night is pizza night at our house :-) Tonight we are making a Mexican pizza. The crust is our last Mama Mia crust from a great sale a while back. Instead of sauce I'll blend up some seasoned black beans and spread that on the crust. We always have lots of shredded cheese on hand from HT B2G3 free deals. Then I think we'll top it with from shredded turkey left from Thanksgiving that we froze, olives, tomatoes, onions, peppers and jalapenos. Add some salsa or sour cream right when you serve and it's ready to go!

    Faye - Thanks. I hate to miss our Saturday event but don't want to give this to anyone.

    Tonight we are having veggie burgers and cheese on wheat rolls with sauteed onions and mushrooms on them and sides of steamed broccoli and mashed sweet potatoes.

    ascherer - so sorry you are still under the weather. I hope you can get plenty of rest this weekend.
