Now Eat This: Mexican Pizza

I'm taking a page from my dear friend Kristi's blog and titling my food posts. Also, I think you should eat this.

A few weeks ago, I was poking around the fridge trying to figure out what to make for dinner. I hadn't planned the week (mistake), but I had some leftover bits and bobs hanging out from the quesadillas I'd made a couple of nights prior and I had a brilliant idea: mexican pizza.

Not ground-breaking, for sure, but tasty. And a hit with Husband, which is always worth noting.

I started with a small 8oz can of Hunt's tomato sauce. Heated is up in a small saucepan along with some chipotle adobo sauce. Can't get enough of the chipotle. I used a Boboli whole wheat pizza crust because I can't be bothered to make my own pizza dough. Because I hate working with it. I do. I just am unable to patiently work with pizza dough. Don't tell me about your recipe- it won't happen any time soon.

Moving on.

Sorry for the poor quality of my pics-nighttime with kitchen lighting is not the best!!

Next, I spread crumbled taco-seasoned turkey meat on the pizza. Husband loves his quesadillas with ground turkey. I try not to use red meat and this works just as well. I also mix up my own taco seasoning which can be found here.

I already had some frozen corn thawed and an open can of black beans, so on they went.

Why don't they sell half cans of black beans? I mean, I try to put them on EVERYTHING once I open a can and I still can't use the whole thing before they go bad.

I smothered the pie with "mexican" cheese- cheddar and monterey jack mix.

Baked according to the Boboli package directions on my pizza stone until golden brown!

I served mine up with a healthy plop of sour cream. (I can't get enough of the stuff- it's a staple in my fridge: Daisy Light.)

Muy Bueno!!

This is a pizza, so you can personalize it any way you like- we're pretty average and boring with our toppings and that suits us just fine. The tomato sauce definitely had a great kick of spicy flavor with that chipotle sauce!

Make your own mexican pie- And feel free to use your own homemade crust. I won't judge you.
