This spicy, Mexican-flavored pizza comes together in a snap with just a few ingredients!

Recipe Ingredients

  • ½ (16 ounce) can spicy fat-free refried beans*
  • 1 cup salsa, divided
  • 1 (12 inch) pre-baked Italian pizza crust
  • 2 cups shredded hearts of romaine lettuce
  • 3 medium green onions, thinly sliced
  • ¼ cup ranch dressing
  • ¼ cup crumbled tortilla chips
  • 1 cup shredded pepper Jack or Monterey Jack cheese

Cooking Directions

  1. 1 Adjust oven rack to lowest position, and heat oven to 450 degrees. Mix beans and 1/2 cup salsa in a medium bowl. Place crust on a cookie sheet, then spread the bean mixture over crust. Bake until it's crisp and warm, about 10 minutes.
  2. 2 Remove from oven; top with lettuce, green onions and dollop with the remaining salsa. Drizzle (or, if dressing has an easy-pour top, squirt) dressing over pizza. Top with chips and cheese, then return to oven and bake until the cheese melts, about 2 minutes longer. Cut into 6 slices and serve.

Chef's Notes

  1. I made it for a get together and everyone couldn't stop talking about it and wanted the recipe! I'm sure you could add ground beef if you wanted or seasoned chicken but I loved it the way it was
  2. I used a boxed crust mix and sprinkled taco seasoning on the dough before baking. We love this recipe!
  3. Great simple recipe. I actually used the pre-made pizza crust which made it even easier!
  4. I actually used two canisters of reduced fat crescent roll dough that I baked then cooled. I spread the refried beans first which I did add a little homemade taco seasoning then homemade salsa and just topped with shredded lettuce chopped tomatoes and olives and the green onions then the cheese. I then drizzled homemade - Read more ...
  5. We loved this but did add taco meat which I think made a huge difference. YUM!
  6. Awesome with changes. I use either a premade crust or homemade and precook for a few minutes with a little cheese. I mix the entire can of beans with salsa - enough to make it easy to spread (we use HOT salsa so the pizza is hot). I spread the beans on the all ready - Read more ...
  7. its good. not great. it tastes like a big taco bowl. i even ended up eating it with taco bell hot sauce.
  8. DELICIOUS! I'm a poor college student with not much time to cook--this was the perfect pizza I loved the mixture of toppings (especially the beans) however I bought a pizza crust that was already cooked in order to make it easier. highly recommended
  9. Yum Yum! That was a wonderful recipe! Easy to fix and easy to eat! Healthy too! SueBee
