  • 1/3 cup masa corn flour, optional
  • 12(6-in.) thin flour tortillas
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil, divided
  • 1/2 cup taco sauce (such as Ortega taco sauce)
  • 1/4 cup red enchilada sauce
  • 3/4 cup pre-shredded Mexican cheese blend
  • 3/4 cup pre-shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1 1/4 cups refried beans, heated through
  • 3/4 cup cooked ground beef seasoned with Taco Bell taco seasoning mix
  • 1/2 cup sliced black olives
  • 1/2 cup finely diced tomato

How to Make It

Step 1

Heat a small nonstick skillet over medium. If using corn flour, lightly dredge 1 tortilla at a time in corn flour, and dust off any excess.

Step 2

Add 1/2 teaspoon of the oil to skillet, and add a tortilla; cook, turning often, until lightly golden and crisp, about 4 minutes. Set aside on metal rack or paper towels. Repeat with remaining tortillas.

Step 3

Stir together taco sauce and enchilada sauce in a small bowl; set aside. Combine cheeses in another bowl; set aside.

Step 4

Preheat oven to broil. Spread about 3 tablespoons beans on 1 tortilla; add about 2 tablespoons taco meat. Top with a second tortilla; spread 2 tablespoons sauce mixture evenly over top tortilla, and sprinkle with 1/4 cup of the cheese. Top with 1 tablespoon each of tomatoes and olives. Place on a rimmed baking sheet. Repeat building process with remaining ingredients to make 6 pizzas. Place baking sheet in center of oven, and broil 1 to 2 minutes until cheese is melted. Let stand 3 minutes before cutting into quarters.
