New Mexico-Style Pizza

Sometimes creativity and extra food in the refrigerator come together in amazing ways. Lisa Renshaw of Kansas City, Missouri writes, “This outrageously delicious pizza really was developed from combining leftovers. Now it's my husband's favorite!”

    I love the recipe as-is, and make it this way often. Other times, however, I mix the salsa verde with low fat cream cheese, to make a thicker "sauce". I also like to add black beans. It's a delicious meal!

    MMM! Just like the author I had a bunch of leftovers to use up and tried this recipe. It's sooo good! I ran short of the salsa verde and used a chopped up tomato to make up the difference. Was still incredibly yummy. (also omitted the sour cream. you'll never miss it.)
