When a Burrito Becomes a Pizza

On Cinco de Mayo eve, Z and I made these Roasted Veggie and Black Bean Burritos from Aggie's Kitchen (with a few tweaks, based off what we had in our kitchen...including using refried black beans). We washed the burritos down with some Skinny Girl Margaritas (much to Z's dismay).  

Last night, I had a bunch of the roasted veggies leftover (sans beans) - and they were one day away from being past edible. I had picked up some whole wheat pizza crusts at the grocery store over the weekend, and we had some leftover goat cheese in our fridge. With those ingredients, a pizza was born. 

The combination of the spicy roasted veggies with the cool, creamy goat cheese made this a delicious and innovative pizza. I enjoyed a slice alongside a simple green salad. 

I was happy that we got to use these leftover veggies in a creative and successful way!

Are you a fan of leftovers? Why or why not?


  1. Leftover pizzas is one of my favorite things to make! I usually make them on Joseph's flax pitas.

    1. Oooh, I'll have to try them with flax pitas next time. Thanks for the tip!

  2. I love using leftovers for pizza, burritos or quesadillas. So easy and resourceful!

  3. love leftovers! looks like an awesome pizza.

  4. I love being able to repurpose leftovers like that. Much more exciting than having the same exact thing night after night.

  5. I love the challenge of making something out of leftovers. It looks like you had some good ones to work with!
