Follow our Pizza Dough recipe or use your own.  The pizza dough recipe we selected is one made with spelt and barley flour, but a dough made with whole wheat flour will work just as well.  With this recipe, you also may wish to substitute sweet basil for the oregano.

While the pizza dough is rising, peel one of the onions and the garlic.  Dice the onion and crush the garlic.   Place in a microwaveable covered glass dish or pot (for stove top cooking) that is large enough to also hold the beans, tomato paste, and seasonings.  Add the finely chopped chipotle pepper (chipotle sauce or salsa can be substituted).  Cook until the onions become semi-translucent.

Open the two cans of beans and discard the liquid.  Add one half of each can's contents to the cooked onions and garlic, along with the tomato paste, chili powder, cumin, and basil.  With a potato masher, coarsely mash the beans and other ingredients together.

Add the remaining beans and mix well with a spoon.  Heat all the ingredients until they just begin to boil.  If heating on the stove top, stir frequently over low heat to prevent burning.  Set aside.

By this time the pizza dough should be ready to go into your preheated 400 degree F. oven for 15 minutes to firm the crust.  While the pizza crust is baking, peel the second onion, and thinly slice enough for the onion ring topping.  Open the can of olives and slice if necessary.

When the pizza crust has completed the first phase of the baking process, remove it from the oven and place the pan on a wire rack.  Quickly, but gently, spoon on the bean topping mixture, and smooth out to the edges of the pizza with a spatula, leaving about 1/4 inch of the crust visible.  (to enlarge the photo of the chili pizza preparation, click on the photo or link)

Place the jalapeno pepper slices on top of the bean mixture.  Sprinkle on the ripe olive slices and garnish with the onion rings.  Immediately place the prepared pizza back into the pre-heated 400 degree F. oven for another 15 minutes of baking.

Remove the baked chili pizza from the oven and place on a wire rack.  Let cool for about five minutes.  Cut into the desired size pieces and serve.  The chili pizza goes great with a mixed green salad. (to enlarge the photo of the chili pizza slice, click on the photo or link)



The above recipe is in keeping with God's creation intent (Genesis 1:29-31):  'Then God said, "I give you every seed-bearing plant on the face of the whole earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it. They will be yours for food.  And to all the beasts of the earth and all the birds of the air and all the creatures that move on the ground-- everything that has the breath of life in it-- I give every green plant for food." And it was so.   God saw all that he had made, and it was very good.' (NIV)  Let no animal suffer or die that we may live!  (d-15)
