Mexican “Flatbread” Pizza

My husband loves Mexican food and I love pizza, so this recipe was right up our alley.  It was really simple to put together, in fact you could even cook the ground beef in advance to make it even easier.  It was amazing how crispy the biscuits got…you wouldn’t even know that it was biscuits as the crust!  This would be a fun meal to make with kids, letting them pick which toppings they wanted for their own.  It would also work well with pizza toppings!

Ingredients:
1 large can Grands Biscuits (8 in a can) -NONFLAKY
olive oil
1 can refried beans
3 tbsp salsa or picante sauce
1.5 cup grated cheddar cheese
Pico de Gallo (we used salsa)
2 cups browned ground beef, seasoned with 1 pkg  taco seasonings
1 tbsp salsa of your choice
5 tbsp sour cream
cilantro, iceberg lettuce, other toppings you might like (we went with avocado)
Flour for rolling biscuits out

Method:

Preheat oven to 375.

On a clean, floured surface, roll each individual biscuit out until it’s really flat (see Pioneer Woman’s recipe for photos).  Place on a nonstick pan, brush lightly with olive oil and bake for 8 minutes, or until beginning to turn golden.  Remove from oven and set aside.

Heat ground beef, set aside.  Mix refried beans with 3 tbsp salsa in a pan and heat on the stovetop. 

To assemble each pizza, first spread on the refried bean mixture, then sprinkle on some ground beef and cheese.  Pop back in the oven for about three minutes, or until the cheese has melted.  Top with the remaining toppings you desire.

Mix together the remaining 3 tbsp salsa and the sour cream and drizzle over each pizza.
