Recipe: Mexican Pizza

Found this recipe on Pinterest, duh, courtesy of All Recipes, which is one of my favorite iPhone apps. It's free, download it now. Their dinner spinner is really fun! Anyway, fell in love, because I have a weakness for Taco Bell (I know it's gross, you don't have to tell me) and immediately made it for dinner. Good grief. It's GOOD y'all.


  • 1/3 pound ground turkey
  • 1/2 medium onion, diced
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 can (16 ounce) fat-free refried beans
  • 4 (10 inch) flour tortillas
  • 1/2 cup salsa
  • 2 cups Mexican-blend shredded cheese
  • 2 green onions, chopped
  • 2 roma (plum) tomatoes, diced
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped jalapeno peppers
  • 1/4 cup fat free sour cream (optional) ... yeah right.


1. Preheat the oven to 350. Coat 2 pie plates with non-stick cooking spray - round cake pans will work if you only have one pie pan!
2, Place ground turkey, onion and garlic in a skillet over medium heat. Cook until beef is evenly browned. Season the meat with chili powder, cumin, paprika, salt and pepper.
3. Lay one tortilla in each pie plate, and cover with a layer of refried beans. Spread half of the seasoned ground beef over each one, and then cover with a second tortilla. Bake for 10 minutes in the preheated oven. 
4. Remove the plates from the oven, and let cool slightly. Spread half of the salsa over each top tortilla. Cover each pizza with half of the Cheddar and Monterey Jack cheeses. Place half of the tomatoes, half of the green onions, and half of the jalapeno slices onto each one.
5. Return the pizzas to the oven, and bake for 10 more minutes, until the cheese is melted. Remove from the oven, and let cool slightly.

6. Slice each one into 4 pieces with a pizza cutter. Top with dollop of sour cream.
