Mexican Pizza


Linking up with Stephanie and Katie again to show my latest Pinterest recipe! 


Weight Watchers Friendly Mexican Pizza! 

Here's the original pin


Ingredients:

3.25oz 95% lean ground beef
2t reduced sodium taco seasoning
Boboli 12" Whole Wheat Thin Pizza Crust
1/2 cup chunky salsa
2T taco sauce
1/3 c canned black beans, drained and rinsed
3/4 c reduced fat shredded cheddar cheese
4 medium black olives, chopped
1 medium scallion, chopped

Directions:

1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees

2. In a large skillet, brown the ground beef over medium-high heat. Add taco seasoning and stir to evenly combine


3. In a small bowl, combine the salsa and taco sauce and stir together. Spread the mixture evenly across the surface of the pizza crust, leaving at least a ½ inch edge around the outside. Sprinkle the black beans across the top of the salsa layer and then follow with the reserved taco meat. Sprinkle the cheese evenly across the top and then follow with the sliced olives.





4. Place pizza on a foil covered baking sheet, a pre-heated pizza stone (my preference) or straight onto the oven rack (depending on how you like your crust) and bake for 8-10 minutes. Remove from the oven, slice and sprinkle the chopped scallions over the top.


Yields 6 slices. Weight Watchers Points Plus: 5 per slice (P+ calculated using the recipe builder on weightwatchers.com)
Nutrition Information per slice from myfitnesspal.com: 206 calories, 28 g carbs, 5 g fat, 11 g protein, 5 g fiber

(all nutritional information and recipe taken from here)

Special notes from me:

-We cooked a whole pound of ground beef just because that's easier. Which also means we used a whole packet of taco seasoning. We ended up putting more meat on the pizza :)
-I bought a can of already sliced black olives and just filled the pizza up with those. I love black olives!
-I used cilantro instead of green onions. I love me some cilantro!


This recipe was excellent and super easy! We already bought the stuff at the grocery store to make it again!
