  • 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.

Expert 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.
