Equipment

  • Half Sheet Pan

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

  • 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).
  • While the oven heats, prep and set out any toppings you'd like for the pizzas.
  • 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.)
  • Spread beans on bread and top with cheese. Return to the broiler and broil until cheese is melted.
  • 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.
