Shungu’s recipe for Mexican pizza calls for a pound of ground beef, but you can, of course, substitute any other ground meat, poultry, or meatless meat, because the Mexican seasonings are the real highlight here. Those seasonings will come primarily from a packet of taco seasoning mix, which you can purchase in the spice aisle of your supermarket, if you don’t feel like making your own. When you fry up the meat, it will be with the taco seasoning and a half-cup of water.
For assembling the pizza, you’ll need 12 small flour tortillas, which you’ll be warming up on the stove, so you’ll also need some canola oil. You’ll also need a can of red enchilada sauce, a can of refried beans, and a cup of shredded cheese. Shungu’s preference is for colby jack, but you can also use pre-packaged Mexican shredded cheese. Finally, for serving this Mexican pizza, you’ll need sour cream and pico de gallo.
