Mexican Pizza Recipe

Day 137.

Sometimes I have huge pizza cravings. This was one of those nights. And, since I already had pasta planned for Italian/Pizza night, I couldn't just cheat and make Friday's meal early. So, Taco Tuesday Mexican Pizza it is. Yum!

Mexican Pizza
Pizza Crust (I used a homemade sourdough crust)
1 C Tomato Salsa
1 C ground beef substitute
2 C Mexican cheese
2 C Black Bean Salsa, from Black Bean Salsa Quesadillas
1/4 sliced black olives

Partially bake crust, if necessary. Spread a bit of olive oil over the top to seal the crust. Top with a layer of tomato salsa, "beef," black bean salsa, cheese and olives. Bake at 400 for 15 minutes.

Seriously delicious and so easy. You could also do a layer of refried black beans and salsa for the "pizza sauce" then top with your favorite Mexican toppings and cheese.
