Enjoy chili in a new way, in a bruschetta-style pizza! Made with the convenience of canned vegetarian chili, this flavorful pizza gives you another way to get the health benefits of fiber-rich beans. And the combination of hearty chili, melted cheese, sun-dried tomatoes, olives and fresh herbs turns this recipe into a true crowd pleaser! (Hint: For tailgating party, make pizza ahead at home, then heat it up on the grill!)
