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!

  1. 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.

  2. Hahha, you go girl! LOL

  3. 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!

  4. Sadly, Tony won again! Christina – I’ll forward my dough recipe to you – its easy – food processor, no rise!

    Laurie – I agree – its so much cheaper, so much better than take out pizza! Wow, Big Mac Pizza! I may have to make that for Tony!

  5. Looks delicious, as usual- could I get your dough recipe also??>

    I am Such a fan of boardgames; and I finally live with roommates who will play with me- ever tried scattergories?

  6. That looks delicious – I love Mexican pizza – now I want some!! Scrabble – my wife kills me at that game!

  7. Nope we don’t have scattergories – I think its a word game though?


    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.


  8. Oh how yummy, I would love these flavors on pizza…thanks for the nudge.
