    1 14.5 ounce can fat-free refried beans
    2 T ground cumin
    1 small onion, sliced
    1 bell pepper (any color), sliced

    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

    This was fantastic!!! I loved it and it was great way to have pizza and mexican food without feeling guilty. I also loved the crust! I can't wait to use for traditional pizzas as well. - 4/22/09
