Mexican Pizza

  • Prep Time 10m
  • Cook Time 5m
  • Servings 3

Ingredients

  • 1 15.5-oz. can  vegan refried beans
  • 1 Tbsp.  olive oil or safflower oil
  • 6 large  flour tortillas or tostada shells
  • 1 8-oz. pouch  of enchilada sauce
  • 1/2 cup  shredded vegan cheese (Try GO Veggie! Mexican Style Shreds or Daiya Cheddar and Mozzarella Style Shreds)
  • 1 cup chopped black olives
  • 1 stalk  green onion, chopped
  • 1 medium-sized  tomato, chopped

Instructions

  1. Heat the refried beans in a small pot.
  2. While the beans are cooking, heat the oil in a medium-sized frying pan and crisp both of the tortillas for about 30 to 40 seconds on each side, or until golden brown.
  3. Remove the refried beans from the heat and spread onto one tortilla. Cover with the second tortilla.
  4. Top with the enchilada sauce (Find this one at your local grocery store!) and shredded vegan cheese. Place in an oven or a microwave and heat until the cheese is melted (don’t overdo it!), then top with the black olives, green onions, and tomatoes.

When I found out that this month’s Recipe of the Week theme was “fast-food faves,” I immediately knew what I was going to whip up: a Taco Bell–inspired Mexican pizza.
