We are straying from the norm this week and going out on a limb with Mexican pizzas! It's still technically made up of all things taco, just on a pizza crust, with a lot of cheese, minus the meat, and well, okay it's not really a taco at all but we want pizza and we don't want to wait till Friday. A Couple Cooks Mexican Pizza looks amazing with lots of seasoned black beans and cheese. Don't bother making your own crust, just swing by Whole Foods and pick up pre-made pizza crust dough. Fiesta!
