Ingredients

    Nonstick Cooking spray
    1 1-pound loaf frozen bread dough, thawed (or make own see whole wheat pizza dough)
    1 cup shredded 2% cheddar cheese
    12 ounces extra lean ground beef
    1/2 cup chopped onion (1 medium)
    2/3 cup bottles salsa
    1 1/2 cups chopped tomatoes (2 medium)
    1/2 to 1 cup shredded lettuce
    1 cup baked tortilla chips, coarsely crushed, or 1/2 cup tortilla chips, coarsely crushed

Directions

1) Lightly coat a 12- to 13-inch pizza pan with nonstick cooking spray. Pat dough evenly into prepared pan, extending edges over pan slightly. (If dough is hard to pat out, allow to rest for 10 minutes.) Sprinkle half of the cheese in a thin strip around the edge of the dough. Moisten edge of dough. Fold down edge over cheese and seal tightly to enclose the cheese. Prick crust all over with a fork. Bake in a 425 degree oven for 10 minutes.

2) Meanwhile, in a large skillet cook the ground beef and onion until meat is brown and onion is tender. Drain off fat. Stir in the 2/3 cup salsa. Top partially baked crust with meat mixture. Bake for 5 minutes more. Sprinkle with tomatoes and remaining cheese. Bake for 1 to 2 minutes more or until cheese melts.

3) To serve, top with lettuce and tortilla chips. If desired, serve with sour cream and additional salsa.
