1 Pillsbury Pizza Crust
1 can refried beans
2 T taco seasoning
1/4 cup leftover taco meat; or leave off for vegetarian pizza
1/4 purple onion; diced
1 small can black olives; sliced
1/2 tomato; diced
1 head romaine lettuce; fine chop
2 handfuls Monterey jack cheese
2 handfuls cheddar cheese
15-20 pickled jalapeños (see my pickling recipe to make your own)
4 oz sour cream
1-2 dashes milk
***TIP: you can add or change any ingredient you might like, just keep it close to taco/Mexican based foods
1. Heat the oven to 450 degrees F
2. Take a large cookie sheet (because I don’t have a pizza stone) and line it with parchment paper. Lay your Pillsbury pizza dough onto the parchment paper and drizzle with olive oil
3. Once your oven heats up to 450 degrees F place your dough into the oven. Cook it for about 6-8 minutes or until your dough starts to turn golden. By doing this you’re allowing your dough to get crispy on the bottom vs having it doughy after all your pizza toppings have finished cooking.
4. While your dough is turning golden in the oven use this time to open your refried bean can, black olive can, chop your onion, chop your tomato, shred your cheese, and fine chop your lettuce.
***TIP: buy a block of cheese and shred it yourself, IT IS CHEAPER!
5. To make it easier to spread your refried beans onto the dough, place it in a small sauce pan over low heat. Also add your taco seasoning to the beans so you have the wonderful taco flavoring
6. Ok, now it is time to build your pizza because you dough is nice and golden. Spread your refried beans over the dough (like you would pizza sauce), add your left over taco meat, onions, olives, and tomatoes onto the refried beans. Finally, top with your monetary jack and cheddar cheese.
7. Lower your heat in the oven down to 400 degrees F to finish cooking the pizza. Cook for about another 8 minutes or until your crust has browned and toppings have melted.
8. While your pizza finishes cooking make your sour cream topping. I like to add my sour cream in a small bowl and add a little milk to thin it out. Start small when adding your milk, you can always add more later. This allows you to spread your sour cream without clumps onto the pizza (similar to chipotle sour cream for all you chipotle lovers out there)
9. Remove your pizza once it has finished cooking. Top with your chopped lettuce, pickle jalapeños, and thinned out sour cream
10. I also like to add a couple more fresh raw onions to the top my pizza as well because I like onions A LOT! Don’t forget to make the pizza your own, it’s ok! Cut up your pizza and serve!
