We harvested some beautiful salad greens from our garden. They are small and tender and so delicious. Most people would think "Salad!". My first thought was "Taco Pizza!".
I used raw tortillas for these pizzas. They are made by Tortilla Land and they are the only ones I use anymore! Fresh = Fantastic. Our taco pizzas were vegetarian, but you can add any variety of toppings to make them your own!
Grilled Taco Pizza
5 uncooked tortillas (you may use regular 10" flour tortillas if you must)
1 1/2 cup low fat refried beans, try mine
1/2 cup water
1 large yam, sliced into 1/2" thick rounds
1 Tbsp + 2 tsp ancho chile powder
2 tsp ground cumin, divided
1/2 tsp sea salt
2 tsp olive oil
1/2 cup white onion, finely chopped
1 small jalapeno, seeded and chopped
1/2 cup fresh cilantro, chopped
1 cup tomato, seeded and chopped
3-4 oz fresh mozzarella, sliced into thin rounds (or feta)
2 1/2 cups fresh salad greens
Preheat and clean grill. Spray grill rack with baking spray. In a large dish, toss yam rounds with 1 Tbsp chile powder, salt, and 1 tsp cumin. Place yam rounds onto grill rack over medium heat and cook for ~2-3 minutes on each side, until just cooked through. Remove and set aside to cool slightly. When cool, cut into 1/2" cubes.
Place refried beans in a medium nonstick saucepan. Add 1/2 cup water, 1 tsp cumin and 2 tsp chile powder. Heat on low until warm.
On clean grill rack, place tortillas (two were all that would fit at one time on mine). Cook over medium-low heat. When grill marks appear, remove from grill. On side with marks, spread 1/3 cup refried beans, chopped yams, chopped onion, jalapenos (if desired), fresh chopped tomato, and cilantro. Place a few mozzarella slices (or feta) evenly onto toppings. Return pizza to grill for additional 3-4 minutes, until cheese is melted and tortilla is crispy.
Remove from grill and place 1/2 cup fresh salad greens onto pizza and slice into quarters. Garnish with salsa if desired and serve.
