Mexican Pizza

When I told my husband we were having pizza for dinner, he told me to make sure I got spaghetti sauce and mozzarella when I went to the store.  Funny enough, I didn't need either for this version of pizza (well, I needed mozzarella, but I had a package in the fridge).

This was so incredibly tasty, and was a great end to a week chock full of delicious homemade meals.  My pizza turned out really ugly because, for some reason, we tend to have problems getting our pizza from the pizza peel to the pizza stone.  It didn't at all take away from the yum that was this pizza.

Make this for your next pizza night.  Dooooo it!!
