Well I've been mulling this around in my head for quite some time.
A 'Taco Pizza' that uses refried beans in it.
I brought home some premade pizza dough and got started.
I had left over ground chorizo that I'd picked up from a local family run Mexican store and had cooked for Taco's last night. I let the refrigerated dough warm up some then rolled it out and put in an oiled pan and made a ridge around the edge. I then spread the refriend beans on the bottom then some jarred picante sauce then I put the chorizo on then I added some mozzarella cheese, chopped yellow onion and some sliced black olives and popped it in the oven. (I figured that the cheese and other toppings would keep the well cooked meat moist).
Here's the before baking pic;
And after about 16 minutes at 375 degs;
I love the flavors however the picante sauce was too watery and the center of the pie couldn't be eaten with hands so I used a fork (yes I know that's Blasphemy)!
I'll try it again but I'll put the picante sauce in a wire strainer to thicken it up and then add the juice back to the jar as I usually just use it on chips or tacos so the added liquid wouldn't hurt.
Yes I know that most pizza places use shredded ice burg lettuce on top but I'm not a lettuce person. If I were to be serving guests I'd offer it on the side along with some sour cream.Our house is as Neil left it- an Aladdin’s cave of ‘stuff’

I warmed the slices in the microwave for about 20-25 seconds then placed them on a cast iron pan that was on a burner at medium low heat to crisp the bottom of the crust up. Then I had a go with them!
It worked great! I could eat the pieces with my fingers! Who'd have thought!
I have no idea what happened to the extra liquid as even without browning the crust there wasn't any extra liquid. All I can think of is that it was absorbed into the crust. Why it wasn't soggy is way beyond this old redneck boy!Our house is as Neil left it- an Aladdin’s cave of ‘stuff’

bought a new sous vide cooker yesterday, first dinner prepared in it.
Fillet of deer, mashed beans with black truffles, pickled beets and carrots.
