Ingredients

One 13.8-ounce can premade pizza crust dough or a pre-formed round crust, such as Papa Murphy's

1 pound ground beef 

1 packet taco seasoning 

One 16-ounce can refried beans 

1/2 cup picante sauce (see Cook's Note) 

3/4 cup sliced green or black olives 

8 ounces sharp cheddar, shredded 

Kosher salt 

1 cup finely diced tomato (about 1 large or 30 grape tomatoes) 

12 ounces shredded lettuce (about 1 large head)

1/4 cup sour cream 

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F. Roll out the pizza dough and fit it onto a 15-inch pizza pan.
  2. Brown the ground beef in a medium skillet over medium heat, about 10 minutes. Stir in the taco seasoning. Set aside.
  3. In a medium bowl, mix together the refried beans and picante sauce until combined. Spread the mixture onto the crust. Scatter the olives over the crust, then top with the cheese and the browned beef. Bake for 20 minutes, or until the crust is lightly browned.
  4. While the crust is baking, lightly salt the tomatoes, then, in a medium bowl, toss them with the lettuce and sour cream. Once the pizza is out of the oven, top it with the cool lettuce mixture. Slice into eight pieces and serve.

Cook’s Note

Garth likes extra-mild picante sauce. I'd use medium to hot.
