Enchilada Pizza Recipe

Enchilada Pizza uses a crescent roll crust and is topped with ground beef refried beans, lettuce, cheese, and more for an easy weeknight Mexican dinner.

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!)!

How To Make Enchilada Pizza

Enchilada Pizza Recipe : So Very Blessed

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!

Yield: 6 servings
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 15 minutes
Total Time: 30 minutes

This Enchilada Pizza uses a crescent roll crust and is topped with ground beef refried beans, lettuce, cheese, and more for an easy weeknight Mexican dinner.


  • 1 roll of Pillsbury Recipe Creations Seamless Dough Sheet (or a tube of crescent rolls - you just have to pinch the seams together to form a crust!)
  • 1/2 pound lean ground beef
  • 1/2 cup of chopped onion
  • 1/2 tsp minced garlic
  • 1/2 of a 10oz can red enchilada sauce
  • 1/2 of a 16oz can refried beans
  • 1 cup of Mexican blend shredded cheese
  • 2 cups shredded lettuce
  • light sour cream, hot sauce, salsa, or any other toppings, if desired


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Unroll the dough sheet and press dough into a rectangle onto an ungreased cookie sheet, about 12" by 9".
  3. Brown the ground beef with the onion and garlic, drain. Add enchilada sauce and simmer for 3-5 minutes, until sauce thickens.
  4. Spread beans across the dough sheet, leaving about 1/2" of the outside edge of the dough uncovered.
  5. Spread ground beef mixture across the dough. Sprinkle with cheese.
  6. Bake for 10-15 minutes, or until dough is golden brown.
  7. Let cool for a few minutes, then cut into 6 slices.
  8. Sprinkle with shredded lettuce, hot sauce, and sour cream.


* This is an easy recipe to double if you grab another crust! Then you can just use a full pound of ground beef, a whole onion, and full cans of the other ingredients.

For the exact brands that I used, I calculated it to be 265 calories per slice. Hope that helps!
