Easy Mexican Pizza Recipe

Easy Mexican Pizza Recipe

Ingredients

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

Instructions

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.

Notes

–If you like a thin crust, you will need only 1/2 – 3/4 pound of pizza dough. Adjust baking time as necessary.
