Taco Pizza!

This is "our" new go to recipe! I just decided on it, ha! The other night I wanted to make something uber easy. With an almost 3 month old, time is of the essence these days. I found this recipe by the Pioneer Woman and it is SO good and easy which is just what I need! It is also fairly healthy! This is a great meatless dinner, so no laying out meat and hardly any prep needed!

To make this scrumptious dish you need:

1 can of black beans
1 pkg of Taco Seasoning
Pizza dough (you can make your own or use a pre-made)
Bunch of lettuce chopped thin
Fresh tomatoes diced
Bunch o' Cilantro!.. For me, the more the better!
Tortilla chips...She made fresh ones...I'm lazy ;)
Shredded Monterey Jack cheese
Sour Cream or Plain Yogurt which is what I used
Tabasco or hot any hot sauce

Make your pizza dough or get out your pre-made one and spread it out on your pan.
Get your undrained black beans and cook them on medium heat in a sauce pan.
Once heated through, smash them all up!
Mix in the taco seasoning and let them cook a little longer until they are a "refried bean" texture.
Dice up your tomatoes, lettuce and cilantro.
Mix up some of your sour cream and hot sauce

Spread your black beans evenly over pizza crust and sprinkle on the cheese. Bake in oven around 400 degrees. Her recipe said 500 degrees, but mine started burning, so I lowered it a tad. :)
It's done when the crust looks golden brown and cheese is melted.
Put on your lettuce, tomatoes, cilantro and tortilla chips.
Then for my favorite part...drizzle on the sour cream or plain yogurt hot saucey goodness all over it! all of that yumminess up!!

I have been trying to really eat clean and healthy lately and this recipe is truly scrumptious!  You can make it even healthier by using the plain yogurt in place of sour cream and even using a wheat pizza crust. I also used the blue corn tortilla chips which worked beautifully as well.

Seriously soo good!

Happy Pizza Eating!

When I worked at Pizza Inn a looong time ago, we made this pizza for the lunch buffet :)
