Mexican Pizza Plantain Crust

Toppings (measurements are rough guesses)

1/2 cup taco sauce

3 tbsp cilantro

1/2 red bell pepper, diced

1/3 cup black olives

3 tbsp red onion, chopped

Couple shakes of cumin

Shredded reduced fat colby cheese, to your liking


Preheat oven to 375º F. Line a perforated pizza pan with parchment paper.

In a medium-sized bowl, mix the mashed plantains and eggs together. Stir in all the dry ingredients until well incorporated.

Spread mixture evenly across pizza pan. Bake the plantain crust for about 10 to 11 minutes, or until the crust is firm to touch.

Remove from oven and add toppings. Bake at 400º F for about another 10 minutes, or until the toppings are cooked through.
