Ingredients (for 2 pizzas of 25 centimeters) (2 persons)
2 homemade or purchased pizza doughs
400g ground beef
3 teaspoons taco seasoning
100g red bean puree
200g of Mexican cheese or grated cheese (or 300g if you have a sweet tooth)
A little of flour
A little of water
Optional toppings: Mexican salsa, cilantro, guacamole, tortilla chips, green chilies, peppers, heavy cream
Preheat oven to 240°.
Cook ground meat in a frying pan over medium heat. Divide it with a spatula into small pieces and wait a few minutes until it turns brown.
Add a little water with the spices to the pan and cook over low heat. Wait a few minutes for the sauce to reduce and thicken, then remove the pan from the heat.
Prepare the pizzas one by one, putting a little flour under the dough so that it doesn’t stick. If you’re worried that your homemade pizza dough is too soft, feel free to pre-bake it for about 10 minutes.
Spread the red bean puree over all but the edges of the dough to form a crust. Place half the beef and half the grated cheese on top of the red beans.
Place baking paper on baking sheet and place pizza on top.
Repeat with second pizza dough.
Place in oven for 20 to 30 minutes so that the dough is crispy and the cheese is melted. While baking, prepare the topping (if any).
Remove from the oven, add the extra topping for freshness, cut out and serve!
