Taco Pizza with Refried Black Beans

Taco Pizza with Refried Black Beans by EclecticRecipes.com #recipe

Are you still on the fence about what to prepare for today’s big game? This taco pizza is an easy pizza that is perfect for game day. I first fell in love with taco pizza when I use to work at Pizza Hut. It was the only one of their pizzas I would eat when I worked there. This pizza is just as good on a thin and crispy crust, as it is on a traditional crust. This time I made the pizza on a traditional crust. It is more filling with the thicker crust and great for parties. For my pizza, I used my leftover black bean soup, which consisted of about 2 cups of beans and not much soup. I reheated the beans, while mashing them with a potato masher. I heated them until they had thickened the consistency of refried beans. You can also just use a can of black beans, and mash them up, or just use refried beans. I then pre-baked my pizza dough and topped the dough with the refried beans. Then I topped that with seasoned ground turkey and shredded cheese. After this bakes, cut the pizza before adding the cold toppings. Serve with salsa and sour cream.

    Different but I am kind of familiar. I used to make a BLT Pizza with lettuce, tomato and mayonnaise on top.

    Taco pizza! In Japan, taco rice is popular but I never thought of having it on a pizza base. All my favourite flavours, and pizza – will have to try it.

    You really make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this matter to be really
    something that I think I would never understand. It seems too complex and extremely broad for me.
    I’m looking forward for your next post, I will try to get the hang of it!
