Ingredients
  

  • 12 small corn or flour tortillas
  • Nonstick vegetable cooking spray
  • One (16-ounce) can refried beans
  • ¼ cup onion, chopped
  • 2 ounces fresh or canned green chili peppers, diced
  • 6 tablespoons red taco sauce
  • 3 cups vegetables (such as broccoli, mushrooms, spinach, and red pepper), chopped
  • ½ cup part-skim mozzarella cheese, shredded
  • ½ cup fresh cilantro, chopped (optional)

Instructions
 

  • Brush one side of each of two tortillas with water. Press the wet sides of the tortillas together to form a thick crust for the pizza.
  • Spray the outside of two pressed together tortillas with nonstick cooking spray. Evenly brown both sides in a heated frying pan. Repeat with the rest of the tortillas. Set aside.
  • Heat refried beans, onion, and half of the chili peppers together in a medium saucepan, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat.
  • Spread about 1⁄3 cup of the bean mixture on each tortilla pizza. Sprinkle with 1 tablespoon taco sauce, then top with ½ cup of the chopped vegetables, 1 teaspoon chili peppers and 1 tablespoon cheese for each pizza.
  • Return to frying pan and heat until cheese melts. Top with cilantro, if desired. Serve immediately.
