  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. 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.

  • * If you can't find the spicy variety of refried beans, then use the traditional kind and stir in 1 tsp. of chili powder.

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 hot crust and top the beans with LOTS of sharp cheddar cheese. I cook it in the oven until the cheese is melted and browned. That's it! I top slices with lettuce, onion, salsa, sour cream, black olives, etc. It's the best taco pizza ever.

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 ranch-mexican dressing over the top. I did not use the tortilla chips only because I don't keep them on hand. Really quick supper and quite enjoyed by my boys. This is great for a last minute dinner on a busy day.

We loved this but did add taco meat which I think made a huge difference. YUM!

Great, simple recipe. I actually used the pre-made pizza crust which made it even easier!

I used a boxed crust mix and sprinkled taco seasoning on the dough before baking. We love this recipe!

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
