Happy Friday! Do you have big weekend plans? We’re having some amazing Fall weather and trying to get outside and enjoy it as much as possible before it turns cold. Aside from that I’ll probably be working through several weekends as this holiday season gets underway. Luckily, when I make tasty dishes for work we get to enjoy them for dinner! Case in point, this Mexican pizza with a twist I made for Stonefire flatbreads & Alouette spreadable cheese.
I worked with Stonefire earlier this year and have been using their products on a regular basis ever since, so when they asked me to prepare something using Alouette cheese I was happy to do so. They sent me a box of goodies to choose from and I selected the whole grain Naan + smoky jalapeno cheese and made these Mexican pizzas with a twist.
Mexican Pizza with a Twist
- 1 package Stonefire whole grain Naan (there are 2 in a package)
- 1 container Alouette Smoky Jalapeno spreadable cheese (obviously you won’t use the entire container)
- 1 lb. ground beef
- Taco seasoning packet
- shredded lettuce
- diced tomatoes
- dice green onion
- taco sauce
- shredded cheddar cheese
- tortilla chips
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Cook ground beef with taco seasoning according to packet directions.
Place naan directly on the oven rack and cook about 5 minutes. Flip it over and cook another 5 minutes. Remove and let cool slightly.
Spread a thin layer of smoky jalapeno cheese over the flatbreads. NOTE: I used the “bottom” side for this because it is flatter and easier to spread on.
Add a layer of meat, followed by lettuce, tomato, onion, taco sauce, and shredded cheese. Top with crumbled tortilla chips.
Slice and serve.
Makes 3-4 servings
Cooking the bread ahead makes the crust nice and crunchy and helps melt the cheese layer ever so slightly. The smoky jalapeno has a kick to it and really adds a new dimension to this Mexican style pizza. It sort of reminded me of ranch flavored Doritos. I can’t wait to make it again!
