Tostada Pizza Night!

Here is a great summer supper pleaser.     Not to involved if you buy a pre-made pizza dough or a ready made pizza crust from the bread section of your grocery.    I have topped this pizza with my favorite ingredients, but please add your favorites including diced jalapeno peppers, black olives, chopped green onions, what ever your family prefers.

Tostata Pizza

@@@@@ Now You're Cooking! Export Format

Tostada Pizza

Mexican, Pizza

  pizza dough of your choice
12 oz ground beef
14 oz refried beans
1 ts taco seasoning
4 whole corn tortillas; cut in strips
1/2 c vegetable oil; for frying
1 c sharp cheddar; grated
1 c Monterey jack cheese; grated
  romaine lettuce; thin slice
2  tomatoes; seeded and diced
1/2 c cilantro leaves; fine chop
1/4 c sour cream
3 tb Tabasco Sauce or to taste

Make the pizza dough. Set aside.   I prefer the Fine Cooking version attached to this link

Sauté beef breaking up to crumble. Brown, drain and set aside.

Pour refried beans into a skillet.  Add taco seasoning and heat. Using back of large spoon, smooth and heat through.  Set aside.

In a small skillet, heat vegetable oil over medium heat and fry strips.  Drain on paper towels.  Fry in several batches to avoid clumping.   Set aside.

Place oven rack in the bottom position in the oven. Preheat oven to 500 F.

Spread pizza dough on an oiled baking sheet. Spread layer of refried beans over pizza crust.   Sprinkle cooked beef over pizza crust. Sprinkle mixed grated cheeses over the top. Reduce oven temperature to 425F.  Place pan on baking stone and bake for 9 to 12 minutes. Bake until golden brown.

Remove pizza from oven. Sprinkle on shredded lettuce, diced tomatoes, and cilantro leaves.

Mix together sour cream and hot sauce, adding enough hot sauce to make the mixture pourable. With a spoon (or you can put it in a pastry bag) drizzle mixture over finished pizza.

Sprinkle with tortilla strips. Cut into squares and serve immediately.

Boo hoo! The photos aren't visible! They must be wonderful from the sound of the recipe. It never would've occurred to me to put sour cream and hot sauce on pizza, yum! And refried beans---I was just reminded yesterday of how I devoured them for breakfast every morning whenever in Mexico. Ahhhh! This is a must try!
