  • 10 fluid ounces warm water
  • ¾ teaspoon salt
  • 3 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons active dry yeast
  • 1 (6 ounce) can tomato paste
  • ¾ cup water
  • 1 (1.25 ounce) package taco seasoning mix, divided
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder, or to taste
  • ½ teaspoon cayenne pepper, or to taste
  • 1 (16 ounce) can fat-free refried beans
  • ⅓ cup salsa
  • ¼ cup chopped onion
  • ½ pound ground beef
  • 4 cups shredded Cheddar cheese


Step 1: Add the water, salt, oil, flour and yeast to your bread machine in the order listed. Select the dough cycle. Check your dough after it has been mixing a few minutes. If it is too dry and not mixing, add water 1 tablespoon at a time, until it is mixing and has a nice dough consistency. 

Step 2: Meanwhile, in a small bowl, combine tomato paste, water, and 3/4 of the package of taco seasoning mix. Stir in chili powder and cayenne pepper; set aside. In another bowl, mix refried beans, salsa, and onion; set aside. In a large skillet, cook ground beef until evenly brown; drain excess fat. Season with the remaining 1/4 package of taco seasoning and a small amount of water. Simmer a few minutes, then remove from heat.

Step 3: Preheat Pizzello oven to 400 ℉ (200 ℃).

Step 4: When the dough cycle is finished, remove the dough from the machine. Divide the dough in half, and pat into two 12 inch pans. Spread a layer of the bean mixture on, then a layer of the tomato mixture. Sprinkle with seasoned beef and top with cheddar cheese.

Step 5: Bake in preheated oven for 10 to 15 minutes, or until crust is golden brown and cheese is melted. Turn pizzas halfway through baking.
