Wild West Pizza Recipe

One of my Freebies this year, was a calendar from Pillsbury. Included were 12 different recipe cards. I decided to try one of the dinner recipes and share it with you. This meal is different, fun, and very filling! I have included ingredients and directions below but you can click here to print the directions from the website.

Wild West Pizza

1 can (13.8 oz) Pillsbury refrigerated classic pizza crust
1/2 lb lean ground beef (I used turkey and it tasted great! *Healthy alternative)
1/4teaspoon salt
1/8teaspoon pepper
1can (16 oz) refried beans
1cup taco sauce or chunky-style salsa
1can (11 oz) whole kernel corn with red and green peppers, well drained
1cup shredded Cheddar cheese (4 oz)
2cups shredded lettuce
1medium tomato, chopped (3/4 cup)
1/2cup sliced green onions

Heat oven to 400°F. Spray large cookie sheet with cooking spray. Unroll dough; place on cookie sheet. Starting at center, press out dough into 14x12-inch rectangle. Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until edges of crust begin to brown.

Meanwhile, in 8-inch skillet, cook ground beef or ground turkey, sprinkled with salt and pepper over medium-high heat, stirring frequently, until thoroughly cooked; drain.

Spread refried beans evenly over partially baked crust. Spread 1/2 cup of the taco sauce over beans. Top with ground beef mixture, corn and cheese.

Bake 10 to 14 minutes longer or until crust is golden brown and cheese is melted. Top with lettuce, tomatoes and onions. Cut into squares or wedges; serve with remaining 1/2 cup taco sauce.
