Bean & Cheese Loaf

Driving home from the office this week, I was mentally cataloging what I had in the pantry, thinking about what I could make for dinner. This idea came to me at a stoplight.  It's got only five ingredients and takes only five minutes to prepare.  Add another 20 for baking, and you've got a hearty vegetarian meal the whole family will enjoy.

  • 1 roll refrigerated pizza dough
  • 1 can black refried beans
  • 1/3 cup diced onion
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 2 slices provolone/mozzarella cheese
  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  • Spritz a baking sheet with non-stick olive oil spray.
  • Unroll dough to cover baking sheet.
  • Spread beans in an even layer on dough.
  • Sprinkle onions evenly on top of beans.
  • Sprinkle shredded cheddar evenly on top of onions.
  • Tear cheese slices into pieces and scatter evenly on top of shredded cheddar.
  • From the long edge of the dough, roll up jelly roll style.
  • Spritz top with non-stick olive oil spray.
  • Bake for 20 minutes, until crust is golden brown.
Serves 4 on its own or 6 with a side salad.
