Ingredients:1 Pizza Crust
1 lb ground pork (you can use beef or turkey as well)
Taco Seasoning (or 1/2 tbsp of garlic powder, cumin, chili powder, and onion powder)
1 can refried beans
1.5-2 cups shredded taco/mexican blend cheese
1 can petite diced tomatoes
1 bag of shredded lettuce
Optional Extras: Sour Cream, Taco Sauce, and Salsa
DirectionsPreheat the oven to 425
Bake the crust until its slightly brown on the edges. Even if its a premade crust this will make it a little crispier.
Meanwhile, brown the ground meat until no longer pink. If your meat isn't real fatty go ahead and put the following seasoning in while you brown. If you will need to drain the meat, you'll want to wait to add seasoning after you drain it
Add taco seasoning OR the garlic powder, cumin, chili powder, and onion powder)
Mix in the can of refried beans
Spread mixture over the pizza crust (mine was really think on a smaller premade crust)
Sprinkle cheese over the meat mixture
Bake at 425 for 5-7 minutes until cheese is melted
Top with lettuce and tomato.
Note: You can also serve it as is, providing all the lettuce, tomato, salsa, taco sauce, etc as toppings so you can fix it however you like.
SummaryThis recipe was awesome! Due to the crust size (standard pre made crust) the meat mixture was really thick, it still tasted great. If you used refrigerated dough you could probably spread it out a lot more.
I made mine with tomatoes and lettuce (just about a full salad on top of my piece) and loved it. Andrew did salsa and taco sauce the first time and bbq sauce the second and really liked it. We'll definitely be keeping this one on the list for a long time!
