Chipotle Raspberry and Black Bean Pizza

Because you’re probably running around shopping for forgotten groceries, making last minute plans and acting like an all around basket case (or is this just me?), I’m going to try and make this post short and sweet. Keyword try. Because this pizza does require a little bit of explaining.

Chipotle Raspberry and Black Bean Pizza
Here it is:

So there’s this restaurant in my college town that serves the dip of all dips. The dip my friends and I demolished time after time in our college days – hello extra ten pounds. The dip that we still go back for each year. The dip that we dream about at night – ok not really, but I think about it A LOT.

The last time I went back for a girl’s weekend, six girls got up at the crack of dawn, shared one shower, in one itsy bitsy (not to mention dumpy) hotel room to get ready in time for the doors to open at our favorite restaurant. I think our waitress must have thought we were just a little nuts when immediately after we sat down, before she could even take our drink orders, one of us erratically shouted, “We’ll have two raspberry black bean dips, PRONTO!” She must have thought we hadn’t eaten in years or had some form of Tourettes Syndrome.

When we spotted the dip headed our way, the excited chatter came to a halt, the table went silent, and all eyes were on the prize. Six girls then proceeded to inhale said dip within three minutes of the waitress carefully setting it down in front of out salivating faces – it’s a wonder one of us didn’t chew her arm right off in the process. In our defense, it was a horribly long night before with six grown girls sleeping in two full size beds that were pushed together for extra room – needless to say, we did not sleep well. Never again.

What’s in it you ask?? Black beans, puddles of warm cream cheese, sweet but spicy raspberry chipotle sauce, and gooey Monterrey jack cheese. That’s it. Seems simple, but it’s so so perfect.

The other day I had an ah-ha moment! Raspberry black bean dip…on…a…pizza. Genius if do say so myself!

A homemade (or store-bought) crust is slathered liberally with softened goat cheese, spread with raspberry chipotle sauce and then covered in Monterrey jack cheese and black beans. Heaven on a pie.

Oh, and I threw on some crispy bacon for good measure, but ate it all of before we could eat it for dinner. Don’t do that, it’s rude.

K-State girls, can I get an amen?!

Luckily, I got the exact raspberry chipotle sauce as a gift for one of my bridal showers. You can find it here, they also sell it at Walmart and most grocery stores, if you can’t find it, any raspberry chipotle sauce will work.

    Girlfriend, I cannot WAIT to try this! Your recap of us stuffing our faces with the dip is so accurate it’s embarrassing. Nonetheless, I’m salivating at the thought of it. Thanks for the awesome post!

  2. You definitely get an Amen over here!! Looooove So Long and all that is this dip.

  3. The ingredients are very intriguing! Thanks for the recipe!

  4. Nicole!!! This pizza sounds so ridiculously amazing! I am such a fan of homemade pizza over going out for pizza because you can basically create whatever you want and this is so freaking genius! I am so making this and I know my husband will be thanking you all week! Cream cheese what??!!! Love it!

  5. I want raspberry black bean dip! And I want this pizza! Both sound so incredible. I would have never thought of putting raspberries and black beans together. Love it. And putting it on a pizza is simply amazing.

  6. Okay for real. I can’t get over this. It sounds so amazing! Pinning!

  7. I am intrigued! I love the idea of sweet and savoury, especially when it involves chipotle and raspberries. This will definitely be going in my pizza-topping arsenal, so thanks for the inspiration! And I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving!

  8. Now this is a pizza! Really genius flavor combo!

  9. I would like to try your recipe, but have a question. One place you mentioned using goat cheese, but the recipe calls for cream cheese. I’m assuming they are interchangeable for this recipe?

    • I meant to say goat cheese! Oops!! Changing text now!

      • I had to improvise with what I had; No pizza stone, so in a convection oven set at 425, I rolled out and baked a Pillsbury classic pizza dough for 6 min then added cream cheese, 1/2 c. seedless raspberry jam mixed with 1 tsp. smoked chipotle powder, caramelized onions, cheese, black beans and 6 slices cooked bacon. I baked for another 6-8 minutes and it turned out delicious!

  10. This sounds delicious! Where could I buy the raspberry chipotle sauce? I have never heard of that before but it sounds great.

  11. Perfection!!! My family and I are big fans of the So Long dip, so we were pretty excited to try this and the pizza blew our mind! They loved it! Definitely a recipe I will make again and again.
