Attempting Something New - Taco Pizza

Taco Pizza

After coming home from a walk around town delivering eggs and running errands, my son and I were really hungry! Tony said that he'd like to have a taco pizza for lunch, but not the store-bought kind because of fat and calories...but something homemade...could I do that? I said that surely I could come up with something and I set to work. To my surprise and pleasure the making of a taco pizza also aided me in using up some of the things that I had on my list to use up as soon as possible out of the fridge (leftover salsa, salad, and cheese).

I made my regular pizza crust and topped it with the following:

2 cans black beans mashed and seasoned to taste with onion powder, cumin, and chili powder
2 cups salsa
1 can chopped green chilis
2 cups mozzarella cheese

After the pizza finished baking (450 degrees for approximately 20 minutes) I topped it with leftover salad, a sprinkling of fat-free cheddar cheese, and a handful or two of crushed tortilla chip.

The general consensus? Absolutely awesome!!!
