I seriously miss blogging about food. Cooking food. Baking food.
I guess technically, all I’ve done for the past 15 days is blog about food, but listing juice ingredients is just not the same.And then I remembered. The day before we started juicing, I made Enchilada Pizza! I had written down the recipe and taken pictures and then completely forgotten about it…until now. So, ever so happily, I bring to you – food! That was baked in an oven (such a novelty at this point!)!
First, grab a can of the awesomely easy Pillsbury Dough Sheets. It’s like one massive crescent roll – I love it! When you unroll it, you’ll need to press the dough a bit to get it to spread out to cover the pan. It doesn’t really need to fit your pan exactly, I just happened to have a cookie sheet that it did fit exactly.
Now break out the refried beans. Homemade, store bought, any brand you’d like! Spread it across your dough, leaving enough dough uncovered around the edges to have a crust.
Brown some ground beef, onions, garlic, and simmer it in some enchilada sauce before spreading that on the pizza, too. Then sprinkle on the cheese and it’s ready to bake!
Let it cool for a minute or two before you cut into it, then sprinkle shredded lettuce, sour cream, hot sauce, and whatever other ingredients appeal to you (think olives, tomatoes, salsa, jalapeños, etc) and enjoy!
The crescent dough makes a warm, flaky crust, the toppings are flavorful and fiesta-y, and the lettuce and sour cream add a cool, refreshing crunch to finish it up. It was the perfect way to get my Mexican fix with ingredients I already had on hand!
This recipe would VERY easily double, but there are only 2 of us here, so we didn’t really need 2 whole pizzas. I was planning on using the extra beans and meat in another recipe, but that plan got sidetracked with the juicing!
