Solids and shape layers are common layer types for backgrounds in After Effects. However, if you change the size of your comp you also have to change the size of your background.
This script will allow you to create a background that is always the correct size by applying the effect Solid Composite to a blank shape layer and moving the layer to the bottom of your layer stack. Use it as a standalone script or add it to Kbar for quick background layer creation.
Open the script file and change "BG" to any name that you want your background layers to be labeled.
