A friend and I were bored one day and chatting about ways to make pizza more substantial in our manly guts and decided that some experiments would be done, this is the first of my experiments to find out how to tank out pizza...
I'd call it a success, also despite being doubly as filling and damn tasty it's tipping the scales between 900 and 1000 calories, which is not too bad, most store bought pizzas are a few hundred more and one I had to myself which was good turned out to be over 2000 calories, so for fulfilment to health ratio I'd call it healthy, though you could knock two hundred off by not adding a second layer of cheese.
The eating experience was interesting, the combination of pizza and bean textures was nice but it's extremely messy, this could be helped but lowering the bean count a bit and putting them on the top layer instead of the bottom.
Tastiness was definitely good though I do recommend using hot sauce or a preferred condiment like I did, because I left a bit without to see how it was and it the tomato sauce of beans wasn't up to much when pizzafied.
Kidney beans or some such may be more suitable for this application, but not butter beans, that would be vile.
Step 1: Ingredients.
The ingredients are rough guesses and not complicated.
Pizza base or pizza dough, make your own if you like, if you do make it yourself give it a pie like lip to make the construction process easier.
Beans, about half a standard can, I used more but to keep it from falling apart as much as mine did I'd use a little can or just a bit less than half a normal can.
Cheese, I used roughly one hundred grams of cathedral city mature cheddar, use your preferred cheese(s) and drop to roughly 75 grams for single layer.
Tomato puree/sauce or your preferred variation, I went for simple sieved tomatoes here because I reckoned using my usual tomato and basil wouldn't mix well, the tomato sauce makes it more like a standard pizza but I reckon it could be done without, however it makes the leap smaller.
Hot sauce, I like cholula but you could change it out for some other condiment, brown sauce goes nicely with beans, even sweet chilli could go well...
