How to make a Mexican pizza
- Warm tortillas. Place tortillas on a lined baking sheet or pizza pan and warm in oven at 400ºF for about 3 minutes.
- Make bean mixture. While the tortillas warm, heat the beans in pan over medium-low heat for 2-3 minutes. Then mix in 3 Tablespoons salsa, taco seasoning and salt.
- Assemble. Take the tortillas out of the oven and place 5 of them in a line. Spread the bean mixture on top of the 5 tortillas, then add cheese, meat and another tortilla on top. Spread salsa over the top tortilla and then sprinkle on some more cheese.
- Bake. Bake the pizzas until the cheese is melted and bubbly, about 5 to 7 minutes.
- Top and enjoy. Remove from oven and add your favorite toppings. Slice into 4 pieces. Enjoy!
The beauty of this recipe is that you can easily make it your own! I used flour tortillas, black bean refried beans, mild salsa, cheese and chicken for the base. Feel free to customize these base ingredients, such as using hot salsa, regular refried beans or taco meat.
Then once it’s done baking, add any of the delicious toppings below:
- Sour cream
