With this delicious and easy Mexican Pizza recipe with only 5 ingredients, you can have a cheesy homemade pizza on the table in no time!
1 lb pizza dough (or premade large pizza crust)
1 cup refried beans
4 ounces cooked chicken meat, chopped with no bones or skin
6–8 ounces Colby-Jack cheese blend, shredded (or more, if you wish!)
1 Roma tomato, sliced (and each slice cut in half, if desired)
Optional garnish: Cilantro leaves, with stems removed
If using pizza dough, press pizza dough out on a greased 14″ round pizza pan (or another suitable baking sheet). If using premade pizza crust, place crust on baking sheet.
Spread refried beans on pizza dough/crust, almost to edge but leaving a 1/2-1″ edge uncovered, all the way around. Top evenly with shredded cheese. Top cheese with cooked chicken and tomato slices.
Bake in a 425 degree F oven for 12-15 minutes or until cheese is melted and beginning to brown and crust is golden. Remove from oven and sprinkle with cilantro leaves. Cut into slices and serve.
–If you like a thin crust, you will need only 1/2 – 3/4 pound of pizza dough. Adjust baking time as necessary.
