Easy, beefy and cheesy–this dinner has it all! Pillsbury™ pizza crust takes the effort out of homemade pizza.

Ingredients

1/2
lb lean (at least 80%) ground beef
1
cup coarsely chopped onion
1
teaspoon chili powder
1/2
teaspoon salt
1
can (14.5 oz) Muir Glen™ organic fire roasted diced tomatoes, undrained
1
can (4.5 oz) Old El Paso™ chopped green chiles
1
can (11 oz) Pillsbury™ refrigerated thin pizza crust
2
cups shredded Mexican cheese blend (8 oz)
1
tablespoon ripe olives, if desired
2
tablespoons fresh cilantro leaves, if desired
Sour cream, if desired

Directions

  • 1 Heat oven to 425°F. In 10-inch skillet, cook beef, onion, chili powder and salt over medium-high heat 5 to 7 minutes, stirring occasionally, until brown. Transfer to medium bowl, cover with foil; set aside.
  • 2 Add tomatoes and chiles to skillet; heat to simmering over medium heat. Cook 6 to 8 minutes, pressing on tomatoes with spatula to break down, until sauce forms.
  • 3 Meanwhile, spray rimmed baking sheet with cooking spray. Unroll pizza crust dough on baking sheet. Bake 10 minutes.
  • 4 Spread tomato mixture over partially baked crust to within 1/4 inch of edges. Top with 1 cup of the cheese, then the beef mixture. Top with remaining 1 cup cheese and the olives. Bake 6 to 9 minutes or until crust is golden brown and cheese is melted. Top with cilantro and sour cream.
Tips  

Try topping with hot sauce, pickled jalapeños or Sriracha for a little extra zip.

Really press on the tomatoes and chiles with a spatula to help them give up their juices for a delicious Tex-Mex pizza sauce.
