Mexican Pizza Recipe by Paula Deen

Easy Level
35 MIN 15 Prep + 20 Cook
6 Servings
$ /Serving

Ingredients

  • 2 (16 oz) jars chunky salsa
  • 2 oz can sliced black olives
  • 1 cup ham, cooked and chopped
  • 2 (12 inch) pizza crusts, or frozen cheese pizzas
  • 3/4 cup sliced fresh mushrooms
  • 3/4 cup green bell pepper, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 2 (8 oz) packages Monterey Jack cheese, or cheddar
  • lettuce, shredded
  • sour cream

Preparation

Position the oven rack at the lowest level. If you have a pizza stone, place it in the oven on the rack. Preheat the oven to 425°F.

 

Heat the oil in a small saucepan and saute the mushrooms and green pepper over medium heat until crisp-tender, about 2 minutes. Cut the crusts into biscuit sized pieces using a biscuit cutter. Distribute the vegetables evenly over the crusts. Reserve 1 cup of the salsa and spoon the remaining salsa evenly over the 2 pizzas. If you don't have a pizza stone, place the pizzas on a baking sheet. They won't be as crisp as they would be if you placed them directly on the rack, but this is a lot less messy.

 

Bake the pizzas for 10-12 minutes, and then sprinkle with the cheese. Bake for 7 minutes more. Serve pizza slices topped with the reserved salsa, olives, cooked ham, shredded lettuce and sour cream.

 

Cook's Tip:

-For a Greek style pizza, use olives, tapenade, spinach and feta cheese.

-For an Italian style pizza, use tomato sauce and provolone cheese.
