Recipe type: Vegetarian
Yield: 4 Servings
Ingredients
  • 4 rounds Pita or Naan (or 1 pre-cooked pizza dough)
  • 1 can Refried Beans
  • 5 oz Shredded Cheese, Mexican Blend
Optional Toppings:
  • Shredded Lettuce
  • Salsa
  • Guacamole / Sliced Avocados
  • Black Olives
  • Jalapenos
  • Tomatoes
  • Green Onions
  • Sour Cream
Instructions
  1. Turn on the oven's broiler (I like to use the lowest setting so that things don't burn if I get distracted for a moment).
  2. While the oven heats, prep and set out any toppings you'd like for the pizzas.
  3. Place pita or naan on a sheet pan. Slice sheet pan under the broiler and toast bread on both sides until crisp. (This should just take a minute or two on each side, but will help the bread from turning too soggy when you add toppings.)
  4. Spread beans on bread and top with cheese. Return to the broiler and broil until cheese is melted.
  5. Pile on any of the toppings you'd like and slice into wedges. Serve warm with some extra salsa or sour cream at the table.
