I came up with this recipe after searching through my pantry looking for a quick family-friendly meal. My two teenage kids LOVE it!

I hesitate to review this bc I really modified it. But I see it has a bad rating but no reviews so I'm going to go ahead and review it so that others might be willing to try it. Please forgive me. I halved the recipe since it's just me tonight--probably should've quartered it but oh well. I'm really not too sure about the dough--it's sweet from the sugar and I had to add about 1 1/2 c of flour to get it a little less runny. It still ended up like pancake dough but I figure I could deal with that and it baked up well enough. I don't like blue cheese dressing nor did I have any so I eliminated that. I also used sour cream instead of mayo and mixed it up with the refried beans as I always have difficulty spreading refried beans. I didn't have chili but I did have red kidney beans so I used that in place of the chili. Also for flavor I added some taco seasoning. Again I know I changed it a lot but I was happy with my modifications. The only thing I'm not that thrilled with was the pizza dough--again the thickness could be due to my halving the recipe--some dough recipes are not that forgiving but I didn't really like the sweet taste of it and it ended up somewhat crispy. I'd be willing to try the recipe again but with a different dough. And maybe if the bf's home and I have the other ingredients I'll stay truer to the recipe! Thanks for the recipe. Read More

I only did the crust and put my own toppings on. If I do this again I will use less sugar and make two crusts with the dough to make it crispier. I found the dough to be too sweet for a taco crust and too thick. Read More

This recipe was pretty good however I did substitute regular chili instead of turkey chili. The crust is a cornbread crust and is intended to be quite gooey and runny when you put it in the pan but keep the faith it is tasty when it's done! All in all my husband and I thought is was ok but my very picky kids ate it! Read More

I like the concept of this dish but the ingredients and crust really didn't appeal to me. For one I had to cut down the sugar by 50% which I still think it was too sweet. Maybe next time I'll try only 1-2 tablespoons. I also added 2/3 cup of cornmeal but I feel like that wasn't enough. I like that it didn't take yeast but the crust was too soft to be considered a pizza. I also don't care for blue cheese dressing or hot mayonnaise so I left those out. I also made my own re-fried beans using black beans and garlic. I I added just green chilies instead of the rotel tomatoes and topped the pizza with shredded sharp cheddar. For garnish I did use the lettuce and tomatoes but added sour cream and salsa for each person to add to taste. Read More
