Loaded Mexican Pizza Recipe

This healthy pizza has lots of flavor, and he actually looks forward to it.

  • 1 lb. ground beef or turkey, 20 oz. of turkey is fine
  • 2 tsp. chili powder
  • 1/2 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1 tsp. onion powder
  • 1/2 tsp. ground cumin
  • 1 tsp. dried oregano
  • 3/4 tsp. kosher salt
  • cayenne pepper to taste, optional
  • 8 corn tortillas
  • 1 c. refried beans
  • 1 c. red salsa
  • 1 c. green salsa, or use all one kind of salsa if you prefer
  • 3 c. Mexican blend shredded cheese
  • 1 ripe avocado, sliced
  • 1 small can sliced black olives
  • 4 Roma tomatoes, diced
  • 4 green onions, sliced thin
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil, and spray with cooking spray. (Seriously, or else your pizzas might stick.)
  2. Heat a skillet over medium high heat and spray it with cooking spray. Add ground meat and spices, and brown and crumble until cooked through.
  3. Spread ¼ c. refried beans evenly over four tortillas, and place them on the prepared baking sheet. Evenly spread meat over beans (you will probably have some leftover). Sprinkle ¼ c. cheese over the meat, and drizzle with 2 tbsp. red salsa.
  4. Place another tortilla on top, and spread 2 tbsp. green salsa evenly over that one. Sprinkle ¼ c. cheese over the salsa, and arrange avocado, olives, tomatoes, and green onions over the cheese. Sprinkle ¼ c. cheese over the top of each pizza.
  5. Bake in preheated oven for 8-12 minutes, until cheese is melted and bubbly. Carefully remove each pizza with a large spatula and serve.
