  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Coat 2 pie plates with non-stick cooking spray.
  2. Place beef, onion and garlic in a skillet over medium heat. Cook until beef is evenly browned. Drain off grease. Season the meat with chili powder, cumin, paprika, salt and pepper.
  3. Lay one tortilla in each pie plate, and cover with a layer of refried beans. Spread half of the seasoned ground beef over each one, and then cover with a second tortilla. Bake for 10 minutes in the preheated oven.
  4. Remove the plates from the oven, and let cool slightly. Spread half of the salsa over each top tortilla. Cover each pizza with half of the Cheddar and Monterey Jack cheeses. Place half of the tomatoes, half of the green onions, and half of the jalapeno slices onto each one.
  5. Return the pizzas to the oven, and bake for 5 to 10 more minutes, until the cheese is melted. Remove from the oven, and let cool slightly before slicing each one into 4 pieces.

Could be good for a person with munchies, though the seasoning is a bit unimaginative. Has no sort of relation at all to pizza.

I could have sworn I had tortillas in the freezer so when I realized I didn't, I decided to just use regular canned pizza crust for this recipe. I used ground turkey, baked the crust for ten min...

Delicious and easy to make. One bit of advice: don't add the garlic and onion to beef and then drain your fat. You pour off a lot of the flavor of the garlic and onions that way. Sauté your G...

I didn't think this was anything like Taco Bell's Mexican pizza; I thought it was WAY better. Apart from adding a litte fajita seasoning to the meat, I made this as stated, and it turned out gre...

really good imitation of taco bell's mexican pizza and so much healthier i'm sure. I used ground turkey, black beans, and fajita sized tortillas instead and they worked fine. I baked the torti...
