With the processor running, add the chicken broth until a smooth mixture is formed.

Spread the bean puree onto the shaped pizza crust in an even layer (about ¾ of the puree).

Layer evenly with the cheddar and monterey jack cheese.

Sprinkle the jalapeño, red onion, tomato, corn and cilantro over the cheese layer.

Season with salt and pepper if desired.

Transfer the pizza to the preheated pizza stone and bake until the cheese is melted and bubbling and the crust is lightly browned, about 10-12 minutes.

Remove from the oven and let cool slightly before slicing and serving.

VARIATIONS: This can also be jazzed up by adding chorizo, sausage, ground beef, etc.
