Tostada Pizza

I got this recipe from the Better Homes and Gardens cookbook. It's not your typical pizza. I made it for my family last night and my kids loved it!

Tostada Pizza
1 lb ground beef
3/4 cup water
1 4-oz can diced green chile peppers, drained
2 Tb taco seasoning mix
1 tsp chili powder
1 Tb cornmeal
1 13.8-oz package refrigerated pizza dough
1 15-oz can pinto beans, rinsed and drained
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1 cup shredded lettuce
1 medium tomato, chopped
3 green onions, chopped
chopped cilantro

Cook ground beef until brown. Drain off fat. Stir in the water, green chiles, taco seasoning, and chili powder. Bring to a boil; reduce heat. Simmer, uncovered, for 15-20 minutes.

Preheat oven to 400. Grease a baking sheet and sprinkle with the cornmeal. Unroll pizza dough onto the baking sheet. Bake for 5 minutes.

In a small bowl mash pinto beans with a fork. Spread beans over partially baked dough to within 1/2 inch of edges. Spoon meat mixture over beans. Bake for 10 minutes or until crust is just golden. Sprinkle with the cheese. Bake for 1-2 minutes or until cheese melts. Top with lettuce, tomato, green onion, and cilantro. Serve with salsa.
