Simple Mexican Beef Pizza

Ingredients

  • 2 pounds ground beef
  • 1 package burrito or taco seasoning
  • 1 1/2 cup chunky salsa
  • 1 can refrigerated pizza crust
  • 1 cup shredded Monterey Jack cheese
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 cup sliced black olives

Directions

Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Prepare pizza crust (depending on the crust, you may want to bake crust for 8 minutes or until crust begins to brown. Boboli's do not need pre-baking).

Brown ground beef, mix in taco seasoning.

Spread salsa on crust, followed by meat and cheeses. Sprinkle olives over pizza.

Return to oven, bake additional 7-12 minutes, or until edges of crust are golden brown and cheese is melted.

Stuffed Mexican Pizza

Ingredients

  • 1 can (15 oz.) chili with beans
  • 1 can (4 oz.) diced green chiles
  • 2 packages (8 oz.) refrigerated crescent roll dough
  • 1 cup shredded Monterey Jack cheese (can also use cheddar)
  • 2 cups toppings
    (shredded lettuce, chopped tomato, sliced
    ripe olives, chopped onions, guacamole, sour cream
    and shredded cheddar cheese)


Directions

Preheat oven to 350° F.

Combine chili and green chiles in medium bowl. Slightly overlap crescent dough triangles around edge of 10-to 12-inch-round pizza pan, positioning top half of each triangle so that it is hanging over the edge of the pan.

Spoon chili mixture in center of each crescent roll triangle; bring top half of each triangle over chili and tuck under pointed end. Sprinkle with cheese.

Bake for 30 to 35 minutes at 350F or until golden brown. Top immediately with toppings. Serve hot.

Note: you can also use two pizza crusts instead of crescent rolls.
