Mexican Pizza

While many of us sit around the TV this afternoon watching the Nascar Daytona 500 (go Gordon!) we are looking for good food to snack on.  Here is a recipe that I think is fun, it combines the great taste of tacos with the ease of pizza.

1 large Boboli Pizza Crust
3/4 cup refried beans
1/2 cup red enchilada sauce
1 cup ground beef
1 pkg. taco seasoning mix
3/4 cup water
2 cups Mexican blend cheese
Cilantro, chopped
Green Onion, diced
Diced Tomato
Shredded lettuce

Cook and drain ground beef, add taco seasoning and water and cook on high until bubbling, then turn down heat to low for 3 minutes until thickened.  Preheat oven to 500 degrees.  Heat beans and spread a thin layer over crust.  Top with enchilada sauce and cheese (use more or less as desired).  Add green onion and cilantro and bake until bubbly.  Top with shredded lettuce and diced tomato.
