                         ----Crust----
    3 1/4  c             flour (I use unbleached & wheat flours)
    1      pkg           active dry yeast
    2      tsps          salt
    1      c             water -- warm (120-130)
    2      tbsps         olive oil
                         ----Sauce----
    1      tbsp          olive oil
    1/2    c             onion -- chopped
    1/2    c             bell peppers -- chopped
    1      14.5 oz can   tomato sauce
    1      6 oz can      tomato paste
    4      tsps          chili powder
      1/2  tsp           red pepper -- flakes
    1      tsp           salt -- or to taste
      1/2  tsp           black pepper -- or to taste
    1      tbsp          parsley
    2      15 1/2 cans   beans -- drained/mashed
    2      c             mozzarella cheese -- shredded
    2      c             cheddar cheese -- shredded
 
 Preheat oven at 350.  Prepare pizza pan with cooking spray and flour. To
 prepare crust, in a mixing bowl, combine for 30 seconds 1 1/4 cups flour,
 yeast, salt, water, and oil. Beat for 3 minutes more. Using a spoon, stir
 in as much remaining flour as you can. Turn out onto lightly floured
 surface. Knead in enough flour to make a stiff dough that is smooth and
 elastic. Cover; let rest for 10 minutes.  To prepare sauce, heat oil in a
 skillet and cook onion and bell peppers over medium heat, stirring, for 2
 minutes. Add tomato sauce,tomato paste, chili powder, red pepper flakes,
 black pepper, parsley, and beans, after lightly mashed. Spoon mixture
 evenly over crust.  Sprinkle cheeses evenly over crust. Bake for 15 minutes
 or until crust is golden.  Remove from oven, let stand for 2 to 3 minutes,
 then cut into slices.
