Taco Pizza

on March 20, 2012

Another brainstorm. Another amazing recipe! Wow! I’m just full of them this week! Er, or full of something. Right now I’m full of taco pizza! Yummy! It’s really actually pretty healthy and loaded with protein! You can make it unhealthy if you choose to, but how I made it turned out even better than I had hoped for!

Taco Pizza

1 can refrigerated pizza crust
1/2 to 1lb browned ground beef
1 can vegetarian refried beans
1 can black beans, drained and rinsed
1 packet taco seasoning
shredded cheese
shredded/chopped lettuce
salsa
black olives & sour cream (optional)

1. Preheat oven to 400F. On a greased jelly roll pan/cookie sheet, press the pizza crust out as thin as you like, if you can make it go edge to edge, you’ll have a nice thin crust.
2. Heat refried beans in a small sauce pan and then spread over the pizza crust, as far to the edges as you like.
3. In a microwave, heat the black beans to soften and fork mash.
4. In a skillet, add the seasoning packet to the browned ground beef according to packet instructions. When meat has completed simmering, add in the mashed black beans and mix well.
5. Spread the meat mixture over the refried beans.
6. Bake for 15 min or until crust is golden brown.
7. Cut into 12 squares, top each piece individually as desired, or top entire pizza prior to serving.

I have several children in my house tonight, so it worked best to cut and dish up each piece then dress w/taco toppings. by not topping the whole thing, I’m able to store leftovers in the fridge and can heat them and top them at a later point. I was nervous my DD wouldn’t like it, but she and her friend both loved it, as did my DS. Yummy!
