This can be vegetarian or you can add the ground beef crumbles to the refried beans.

Ingredients

2
ready-made whole wheat pizza crusts
1 large
can rosarita vegetarian refried beans
1 Tbsp
taco seasoning mix
2 Tbsp
water
chopped lettuce
chopped tomatoes
sliced black olives
minced green onions
sour cream, ranch dressing or salsa
cheddar and jack cheese (if not desiring vegan)

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Bake pre-made pizza crusts in oven for 10 minutes. (I have recently found a thin whole wheat crust that I like---it does not have to be prebaked.)
2
Meanwhile, in a large saucepan, mix your refried beans with taco seasoning and water and simmer til water is evaporated.
If you want to get more veggies in, brown up some diced onions and peppers before adding the beans. I also like to stir in some chopped mild chilies.
3
Remove crusts from oven and spread bean mixture on top of the two crusts. Top with mozzarella cheese.
4
Return to oven and bake til sizzling.
5
Top with diced tomatoes, shredded lettuce, black olives, green onions and a sprinkling of cheddar or jack cheese. Dress with sour cream, ranch dressing or salsa.
