Vegan Mexican Flat Bread

Here is another Friday night "pizza" idea. I am always looking for different recipes to put on a pizza. We are running low on food again and I just used some things I had left in the pantry. This is really simple and does not take very long to make either. It is great served cold the next day too! I have been eating it all morning!!!!
I forgot to take a picture before I cut it all up but this gives you a good idea of what it looks like!

Makes: 2 medium pizzas
Total Cook Time: 45 minutes

Dough Ingredients
2 cups whole wheat flour
1/2 cup all purpose flour
1/2 (or more) cups warm water
1 tablespoon olive oil

Mix all ingredients in medium bowl until they stick together. Kneed for about 5 minutes. Place in plastic wrap or a zip-lock bag and put in fridge until you are ready to use it.

Flat Bread Toppings
1 can whole black beans
1 can whole kernel corn
1 can diced tomatoes (or 1 whole tomato)
2 avocados
olive oil
garlic salt
Cayenne pepper
taco seasoning
daiya cheddar cheese (optional)
tofuti sour cream

Drain your bans, corn and tomatoes. If you are using a whole tomato dice it into small squares. If you used a can after you drain it you may want to dice them a little smaller but it is your call.

Place in a medium bowl and add olive oil, cayenne pepper, taco seasoning and salt/pepper to taste. You may want to taste it before you add to much. Mix everything together.

Roll out your dough into 2 even pieces. Place on a tray with nonstick cooking spray. Cover evenly with olive oil and sprinkle with garlic salt. Place your combination of beans,corn and tomatoes evenly on top. Place in oven for about 8 minutes.

If you are adding the vegan cheese do this now. Place back in oven for about another 10 minutes or until dough is crispy.

While it is cooking slice open your avocados and cut into small squares. When the flat bread is done remove form oven and let cool. Place the avocado pieces evenly on top 
and sprinkle with a little more salt and pepper.

Cut to your liking and serve hot with some tofutti sour cream on the side. 

Enjoy :)
