Silver Lining: Mexican Pizza

Mexican Pizza

Hey there! Today I wanted to share one of my favorite quick lunches or dinners - homemade Mexican pizza. It's a fun twist on regular pizza, with lots of yummy ingredients from south of the border. Actually, I'm 99% sure this is not a real dish in Mexico. We just started calling it Mexican pizza years ago and it stuck :) We have this all the time for a quick lunch or dinner. It's another one of those recipes that can be made from almost anything you have around your house.

First, spread heated refried beans on a small tortilla as the "pizza sauce." Then, top with cheddar or pepperjack cheese. Next, put on your toppings. This could be anything you want. We love corn, pinto beans, red peppers, olives and green onions. Put it on a baking sheet and broil it on the top rack of the oven on high for a few minutes, or until the cheese is melted and the tortilla is golden brown.

Slice the tortilla like a pizza and sprinkle with lime juice, salsa, or hot sauce. Serve immediately.
