Mexican Pizza

Mexican pizzaImage by Kodamakitty via FlickrI got this recipe from my mother-in-law, and we really like it. I haven't made it in a while, but a friend's pizza crust the other night reminded me - so I had to share, because I think this pizza would be great with her crust.

Mexican Pizza
for each pizza crust:
  • 1 pkg. pizza crust mix
  • 1/2 cup cornmeal
  • 1/2 cup plus 2 T. water
  • 1 can refried beans
  • chopped onions
  • chopped green pepper
  • sliced mushrooms - fresh or 4 oz. can
  • black olives, sliced
  • tomato, chopped (or use well drained, canned)
  • Colby/Jack cheese, shredded 
  1. Mix pizza crust mix and cornmeal for 1 pizza crust.  Add water and mix according to package directions.  Let sit 5 minutes, then press onto pizza pan. 
  2. Bake 10 minutes @ 450°. 
  3. Remove crust from oven, and spread 1/2 can refried beans on top. 
  4. Add remaining ingredients, saving some for the second pizza, and return pizza to oven.  Bake until cheese is melted and slightly browned (or however you like your pizza). 
  5. Repeat with remaining ingredients to make the second pizza. 
 Serve with some crushed red pepper to sprinkle on top.  Makes 2 pizzas.

You can use any pizza crust.  When I first started making this, I had some packages of pizza crust mix I had gotten really cheap, so that's what I used.  The added cornmeal is absolutely perfect with the toppings on this pizza.  I really need to make this soon! (and maybe this one, too)
