Homemade Mexican Pizza
My husband has been looking in the frozen pizza section for the last year for an elusive Mexican Pizza he had once upon a time. Evidently the company stopped making it. After many such trips I finally asked him what was on it and decided to make it myself. This recipe is what I came up with.
~One Can Refridgerated Pillsbury Deep Dish Pizza Dough
~1 lb ground beef
~1 pkg shredded cheese (mexican blend)
~1 can Rosarita Refried Beans
~1 pkg taco seasoning (or make your own!)
~ additional toppings of choice (tomatoes, green onions, black olives, shredded tortillas, shredded lettuce)
Preheat oven to 400. Prepare dough per package instructions. Brown ground beef and add taco seasoning with about 1/2 cup of water. Set aside.
Spread a thin layer of refried beans onto prebaked crust. Spread beef mixture over beans. Spread cheese over beef mixture.
Add toppings as desired. I used diced tomatoes and green onions. Shredded toritilla chips can be used before or after baking.
Bake for 6-10 minutes until cheese is melted and pizza is heated through.
Garnish as desired with sour cream or guacamole.

I'm working on alternate ingredients to make this organic! Stay tuned!
