While many Mexican Pizza recipes use two tortilla layers, we made ours with only one.
2 burrito size tortillas
1 lb ground beef
1 packet taco seasoning (any brand is fine)
1/2 cup heated refried beans (optional)
1 cup shredded cheese
Optional toppings: (these go on after the pizza comes out of the oven)
chopped green onions
diced green chiles or jalepenos
1. Prepare taco meat according to package directions.
2. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Place tortillas on a large baking sheet. Poke the tortillas with a fork to prevent them from puffing up in the oven. Bake tortillas for 3-4 minutes or until slightly golden brown. Remove from the oven.
3. Evenly spread tortillas with beans, then taco meat. Next, top with shredded cheese. (Some people like to spread salsa on and then top with cheese.) Bake for 4-5 minutes or until cheese is melted and edges are golden and crisp.
4. Transfer the pizzas to a cutting board and let cool for 1 minute. Top with olives, tomatoes, onions, cilantro, etc. Cut into slices and serve immediately.
