Loaded Mexican Pizza Recipe

My husband is a picky eater, but this healthy pizza has lots of flavor, and he actually looks forward to it. Leftovers are no problem, because this meal tastes better the next day. —Mary Barker, Knoxville, Tennessee

"This pizza was the perfect Cinco de Mayo feast! I served it with homemade guac., but it really wasn't needed. This will become a staple in our house!"

"We really liked this; husband says it's a keeper. Followed recipe as it was written."

MY REVIEW

"I thought it was good. My husband did not. I went with the salsa in the beans and did not drain it. Should have. When I took it out of the oven, there was liquid coming out. So, with the tomatoes and salsa, too much liquid. I also cut back on anything hot. The only reason I won't make it again is because my husband won't eat it."

"This pizza was such a nice change of pace! Very very good! My husband (who thinks that if there isn't any meat then it's not a full dinner) didn't even notice it was vegetarian. My two daughters cleaned their plates too! I left off the jalapenos to keep the spice level down, but they can be added to individual slices later. It was a great tip to add salsa to the mashed black beans to make it easier to spread too!"

"EXCELLENT pizza. I didn't miss the meat at all. I did a couple changes but mostly small stuff. Did a red pepper instead of a yellow pepper. I did only 1 tsp of chili pwd since I was serving it to my little boy and skipped the jalapeno. I added almost a full cup of homemade salsa to the bean mixture that was first spread on the crust and it seemed to make it easier to spread. I used shredded mozerella cheese, just a tad bit of shredded pepper jack and shredded cheddar. I was trying to keep the spiciness down but not kill it. I also put some of the cheese down over the first bean layer so it wouldn't all be on the top and be given the chance to slide off. After cutting the pieces I topped them with sliced avocado. Very healthy and very very good flavor :)"

"This was so, so good! I can't believe I didn't make it sooner. I processed the beans in a food processor and added a splash of lime juice & salsa for moisture. I also threw in a few scraps of chicken between the bean and tomato layers. I LOVED this."

"This was fabulous!! The amount of onions is just fine. This recipe has a nice little 'kick' to it, but not too much. Of course, like garlic and peppers, onions are a matter of personal taste. My husband and I really enjoyed this meal."

MY REVIEW

"The amount of onion needs to be decreased by more than half. I would not make this again as the recipe reads."
