Refried Bean-Taco Pizza Recipe

Refried Bean-Taco Pizza Recipe

When I’m in a rush, I take advantage of convenient prepared pizza crust to create this Mexican-style pizza. If you like it spicy, add a little chopped jalapeno pepper to the skillet when cooking the beef.—Mary Detweiler, Middlefield, Ohio
