  • 1 envelope Fleischmann’s® RapidRise™ Yeast
  • 11/2 teaspoons sugar
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2/3 cup very warm water (120° to 130°F)
  • 3 tablespoons oil
  • 1/2 cup crumbled nacho cheese flavored tortilla chips

Toppings

  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1/2 cup diced onion
  • 1 package taco seasoning mix
  • 1/2 cup black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 12 chipotle peppers from can of chipotle in adobo, plus 2 teaspoons adobo sauce
  • salt to taste
  • 2 cups Cheddar-Jack cheese
  • Toppings as desired: chopped tomatoes, avocado, cilantro

Instructions

Crust

  1. In a large bowl combine 1 3/4 cup flour, yeast, sugar, salt, water, and oil. Stir until smooth, adding more flour if necessary. Dough should be slightly sticky, but form a ball.
  2. On a lightly floured surface, knead the dough for 3-4 minutes until smooth and elastic.
  3. Alternately you can mix the dough ingredients in your stand mixer fitted with the dough hook attachment.
  4. Cover the bowl and allow the dough to rest for 10 minutes. Prepare toppings, while the dough is resting.

Toppings

  1. In a medium skillet over medium-high heat cook the ground beef and onion together until meat is cooked and onions are soft. Drain excess fat, if necessary. Add taco seasoning packet, black beans, and 3-4 tablespoons of water, and cook for 2-3 more minutes. Remove from heat and set aside.
  2. In a small bowl mix together the sour cream and chipotle peppers and adobo sauce. Add as many peppers, or as much adobo sauce as desired. Season with salt to taste.

Assembly

  1. Preheat oven to 425°F.
  2. When the dough is ready, spread it out 12-15 inches, depending on desired thickness onto a lightly greased pizza pan. Press the crushed tortilla chips into the edges of the dough.
  3. Top with all but 2 tablespoons of the chipotle cream, reserving those for garnishing the pizza.
  4. Top the chipotle cream with the meat/bean mixture, and then the cheese.
  5. Bake for 12-15 minutes until the crust is golden brown and the cheese is melted.
  6. Top with tomato, cilantro, avocado and drizzle the remaining chipotle cream on top.
  7. Serve warm.

Notes:

Store leftovers in refrigerator for up to 3 days. To reheat, preheat oven to 400°F. Place pizza on baking sheet and heat for 5-10 minutes until cheese is melted.
