There's nothing like a baked pizza fresh out of the oven that you could make any time of year for an equally satisfying lunch or dinner. Fresh cilantro, chicken, and barbecue sauce add pizzazz to this pizza, and black beans add flavor and fiber. The Mexican-style cheese of course helps tie everything together. You only need seven ingredients and a half an hour to make this pizza, thanks to using pre-baked dough, and with no special equipment or grilling required. You can top with other herbs you have on hand if you're not a fan of cilantro, such as oregano, parsley, or basil.
