Mexican Pizza!

Once again, in an attempt to trick Tony that tonight is not again Pizza Party Friday, I decided to make Mexican Pizza!

With the leftovers from the refried beans and taco meat, a delicious pizza was born!

The first layer?  A mixture of 1/2 can fat free refried beans with a half can of enchilada sauce:


The rest of the ingredients – except no jalapenos for Tony!  Although, as careful as I was, he got 1/2 of one slice on his side!

enchilada/refried bean mix, black beans, taco meat, mexican cheese, jalapenos for me and shredded lettuce!

After the first two layers:


Here’s my side – I put the peppers on top so as Tony wouldn’t get any on his side – one may have jumped over though!


Now after you take it out of the oven, let it cool about 5 minutes.  Then sprinkle with cold shredded lettuce – don’t dismiss this last step – IT MAKES THIS PIZZA! 


Hope everyone had a great Friday – I am off to beat Tony’s a$$ in Monopoly, turns out he won’t play Scrabble with me anymore and he always wins Monopoly!  (Yes, I am that good.  Any takers?!)  See you at breakfast!

    November 15, 2008 at 3:33 am Love your Mexican pizza and I know my husband would too. Friday night is pizza night at our house. We used to get take out and the hubby's favorite was a Big Mac Pizza (spread with lettuce like yours) from our local pizza place. Now (like everyone else) our budget has shrunk so I make homemade pizza every week. We'll give yours a try.

    November 15, 2008 at 4:53 am Looks awesome! It looks like you make your own crust for all these pizza Fridays. Perhaps I missed it, but did you post the recipe for that? I LOVE board games. Johnny won't play Scrabble with me either, or Scattegories. He says thinking of words and letters isn't fun for him, but really I think he's jealous that I always win. *scoffs* .. Men!

    November 15, 2008 at 3:29 pm Nope we don't have scattergories - I think its a word game though? DOUGH RECIPE: 2 1/2 cups flour (divided) 1 cup warm water (110 degrees) 1 package yeast 1 tablespoon olive oil 1 teaspoon salt Put flour in food processor with salt. In a separate bowl, mix warm water and yeast. Let it sit for 5 minutes, or until the yeast is bubbly. Turn on processor and add water/yeast mixture. Now add enough flour so that it doesn't stick to the side of the food processor - for me its usually about an extra 1/2 cup, but you can eye ball it. Once it doesn't stick, pour in the olive oil - this will give the dough a nice sheen. It will be sticky - roll out using flour. This recipe makes two 14 inch pizzas. Enjoy!
