Please try to tell me that this does not look delicious.  You cannot do it can you? ;)  Good decision, because this was an absolutely yummy pizza!  Not to mention the fact that it is beyond easy to make (which is always a plus in my book)!

Vegetarian Taco Pizza

Servings: 2-3 (makes 6 pieces)

Ingredients

1 pre-made whole wheat crust (or make your own)
1 15 oz can of dark kidney beans, drained and rinsed
3/4 cup of salsa + extra for topping
1/2 small yellow onion, diced
1/2 green bell pepper, diced
part-skim shredded Mexican or taco cheese
shredded lettuce, optional
diced tomatoes, optional
chips (tortilla or Doritos), optional
guacamole, optional
taco sauce, optional

Directions

1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.

2. Measure out 3/4 cup of the kidney beans and mash them in a bowl.  There should be some small bean pieces left.  Add 3/4 cup of salsa to the mashed beans and mix well.

3. Spread the bean and salsa mixture onto the pizza crust.  Top with remaining kidney beans.

4. Next, top the pizza with the diced onions and green peppers.

5. Sprinkle the pizza with the shredded cheese.

6. Bake for 8-10 minutes, or according to the pizza crust package directions.

I topped my Vegetarian Taco Pizza slices with shredded lettuce, tomatoes, salsa, and crushed tortilla chips…

This was one simple, fast, and delicious meal!

    Not that is interesting. I love home made pizza. You can be so creative when you make it yourself. Looks yummy.

    It was great Hannah. I think it is easy enough for even me to make!!

    Yum! I love tacos, so I have no doubt I’d enjoy this pizza-fied version, too! The addition of the crushed tortilla chips is a fun (delicious) touch, too! Thanks for sharing! I’d love to try this on a gluten free crust (or corn tortilla). :)

      This would definitely be super yummy on a corn tortilla. Kind of like your own personal pizza! :)
