This was easy & very adaptable to any family's preferences. I used Easy Peezy Pizza Dough (Bread Machine Pizza Dough) for the dough and used ground turkey instead of the beef. I added 1 diced (seeded) jalapeno and 1/3 of a green pepper, sliced black olives, and the onions to the pizza before baking. I only used about 1/3 of the head of lettuce. We enjoyed our pizza night. Thanks Twig!
This is close to the PH recipe but there are a few differences. The sauce used is thinner than regular refried beans. Not sure if it is simply dilluted with water or some sort of broth, but it is definitely a TON thinner than refried beans. The browned & drained ground beef (best cooled prior to assembling pizza) and cheddar cheese are mixed TOGETHER then placed on top of the bean sauce (not cheese on top of beef). Once removed from the oven the pizza is sliced and the basic toppings then added are lettuce, diced onions (I believe they use red onions now, pretty sure it used to be white onions though), diced tomatoes, and then crumbled up nacho chips (either white or yellow corn would work). They include taco sauce packets with the pizza and if it isn't just taco bell sauce I'm guessing it is pretty close. A thin or hand-tossed crust would require just a cookie sheet on a baking stone or a pizza sheet with holes in it (with a little spray on vegetable oil). For a pan pizza you'll need a couple tablespoons of olive oil in the bottom of a 2" deep pizza pan so that the dough sort of fries while being cooked.
