Mexican Pizza Recipe

This is a quick and easy recipe that can be changed to add anything you want. We used to make it pretty often, but since I have been trying new things, we haven't made it in a few months. I got Pillsbury Pizza Dough on sale and decided to make it last night.

Again, this is a recipe where you can use as little or as much as you want.  Here are the basics.
- 1 pizza dough(I use Pillsbury thin crust)
- 1 -1/2 pounds hamburger meat, ground turkey, or shredded chicken
- 1 can of refried beans
- 1 can of black beans
- 1 can of corn
- 1-2 cups of cheese(I usually use the Mexican blend or some sort of white cheese, but I only had cheddar yesterday)
-lettuce, tomatoes, sour cream, salsa, guacamole, etc, etc, etc for toppings.

Preheat oven to 350. Saute half an onion(if wanted) then brown your hamburger meat, turkey meat, or you can use shredded chicken. Mix with a packet of taco seasoning as directed.

Spray pan with cooking spray. Spread your pizza dough to cover pan.

Spread can of re-fried beans over pizza dough.  I leave about 1/2-1 inch of crust on all sides as you would a pizza.  I used to use a spoon to spread the re-fried beans, but it is so much easier just to use your hands.

Pile on the toppings.  I use the meat, black beans, corn, and cheese.  Put in oven for about 10-15 minutes or until sides start to brown.

I then add lettuce and tomatoes.  Only Isabella and I like tomatoes, so I only add it to one side.

I wait until I put them on plates to add the toppings such as sour cream and salsa.  You'll want to eat it with a fork.  This makes enough for my family of four to eat twice, so we have leftovers for lunch or dinner another night.

  Pin It!

I make that same thing! My boys love it and I love that it is full of good veggies but disguised as pizza:)

That's yum-o! To make it a little healthier (sorry) I'd use tortillas for the base. Pillsbury doughs have trans fats. Some tortillas do, but not all. You can find a few really good ones out there that use olive oil or canola instead of hyrogenated fats.

If you've never made pizza dough - it's really super easy.

1/2 cup warm water - mix with 1/2 tsp sugar, 1 3/4 tsp yeast and let sit for 5 minutes.

Come back and add 1/2 tsp salt, 1 1/2 cups bread flour (and any spices, herbs you like). Knead until soft. Let it rise for awhile (or not!) and roll it out. Top with the usual ingredients and bake at 450 (or hotter if your oven can take it) for 6-10 minutes or until dough looks done and cheese is melted. :)

Wow, that looks scrumptious and most important, easy! Not crazy about refried beans but I imagine something else could be substituted.
