Mexican Pizza

Mexican Pizza: Savory Sweet and Satisfying

Growing up if I ever ate at Taco bell, I always had the same thing, a Mexican Pizza. I loved their Mexican Pizza. I had not thought about that pizza in a long time, until I saw a few different pins for Mexican Pizza.

After looking at a few recipes I decided on one, and made a few modifications. I knew that my home version would not be crunchy like Taco Bell's, but I was pretty sure it was going to be delicious. Turns out it was delicious, even more delicious than I though it would be.

I can't really tell you how it compares to Taco Bell's, because I have not had one of their's in a long long time, but I can tell you it is delicious, easy to make and come together quickly.

Mexican Pizza
1 pound ground turkey (or beef)
2 teaspoons chili powder
1 teaspoon onion powder
1/2 teaspoon cumin
1 teaspoon dried oregano
cayenne pepper, to taste
6 flour tortillas
1 cup refried beans
1 cup red salsa
1 cup green salsa
3 cups shredded Mexican blend cheese
black olives, sliced
3 roma tomatoes, diced
2 green onions, sliced

Preheat oven to 400ยบ F.  Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil and spray with cooking spray.

In a large skillet, over medium high heat, add the ground turkey and spices. Cook until the ground turkey is completely cooked and crumbled.

Spread 1/3 cup refried beans on 3 tortillas and then place them on the prepared baking sheet. Evenly spread the cooked meat over the beans. Sprinkle 1/3 cup of the cheese over the meat and drizzle with 2 heaping tablespoons of red salsa over the cheese.

Place another tortilla on top and press down light to create a flat and even surface. Spread 2 heaping tablespoons of green salsa over the tortilla. Sprinkle with 1/3 cup of cheese. Top the cheese with black olives, tomatoes and green onions. Sprinkle 1/3 cup of cheese on the top of each pizza.

Bake for 8-12 minutes, or until the cheese is melted and edges of the tortillas are crispy. Cut each pizza into wedges and serve.
