Ingredients

  • 12 oz lean ground beef
  • 1 onion chopped
  • 2 minced cloves of garlic
  • 1 tablespoon chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/4 teaspoon each of salt and pepper
  • 1 1/2 lb whole wheat pizza dough
  • 1 cup salsa
  • 1 cup pizza sauce
  • 1 cup shredded extra-old Cheddar cheese
  • 1/4 cup light sour cream
  • 2 cups shredded lettuce
  • 1 tomato chopped
  • 1/2 avocado
  • 1/4 cup sliced black olive (optional)

Method

In large nonstick skillet, cook beef over medium-high heat until no longer pink, about 5 minutes. Drain off fat.

Add onion, garlic, chili powder, oregano, salt and pepper to pan; cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until onion is softened, about 3 minutes.

On lightly floured surface, divide dough into quarters; shape each into disc. Roll out each into 8-inch (20 cm) oval; place on large greased baking sheet. Spread each with salsa; sprinkle with meat mixture then cheese. Bake in bottom third of 425°F (220°C) oven until cheese is bubbly and crust is golden, 20 to 25 minutes.

Top each pizza with sour cream, lettuce, tomato, avocado, and olives (if using).
