    I enjoyed making and eating the Mexican pizza. It was easy. I mashed my black beans before I spread them on the crust. I felt like I was eating something from a local Mexican resturant. I will make this again. - 4/16/09

    Made this last Friday and it turned out awesome - we were already coming up with variations! We topped ours with corn, fresh tomatoes, onions, and shredded Mexican cheese. I made my own mashed and seasoned pinto beans, and served with fresh made guac. Yum!!! - 4/13/09

    This was so good! It's a great way to get some extra veggies and so easy.

    I used a corn tortilla as a base for mine because I was too tired to make the crust from scratch. - 4/14/09

    This was very good. I made it for my whole family. My two oldest daughters had their boyfriend and husband here and they both devoured it. I topped it with shredded lettuce, diced tomatoes and sliced olives. It was a great success. I have already been told to make it again SOON. - 8/2/09

    My family has made these for our family night. Each one uses a tortilla and makes their own pizza. It's great for those who don't like peppers and my dh wants mushrooms on his. One of our boys likes to put pineapple on his. Wonderful fun! - 6/26/09

    This one is a keeper!!! I don't like sour cream on my Mexican food but would have it on hand for family members who do! It's only a 'side item' anyway, right? - 10/12/09

    I loved this! Having a second slice right now! I happened to find some whole wheat pizza dough at Fresh and Easy and popped it in the oven and then did the toppings! Wow, great recipe! - 11/12/09

    I have been making something like this for years, but instead of a "pizza" crust I just use a fresh corn tortilla. Sometimes I steam the tortilla a little in the microwave other times I carefully crisp them in the toaster oven. Either way It's a big time saver and perfect when cooking for 1 or 2. - 10/24/09

    I've been doing a version of this for years, using the whole grain pocketless pita. (?Kontos?) A base of fat-free refried beans and lite or lo fat cheddar. After it is heated, topped with salsa, lots of lo-or nonfat sour cream, and lots of chopped scallions. I might try the cumin for added flavor. - 10/12/09

    This was an interesting pizza. I found the refried beans made the crust a bit soggy after it sat awhile. I added mushrooms and shrimp. Served it with the sour cream and it was pretty darned good. - 12/7/09
