“Mom, what’s for dinner?”

No, but really I’m the only one that cooks in my house. It doesn’t bother me but sometimes I struggle on coming up with something easy to prepare.

When I was a kid, my mom used to make this tostada pizza. I always loved when she made it for dinner. It’s such a great staple dish that’s easy and delicious. It’s a fun cross between a taco, pizza and a tostada.

It has a crust made from Bisquick baking mix, then a layer of refried beans and a layer of cooked beef or turkey with chilies and taco seasoning. Bake for 20 minutes, add some cheese and then slice it like a pizza pie. You can add whatever toppings you like – my boys like the veggies on the side. :)

One of the best things about this recipe is that you probably already have most of the ingredients in your fridge and pantry! So tonight when you hear the dreaded “What’s for dinner?” phrase, you can quickly say – Tostada Pizza!! I hope your family enjoys it as much as mine does!

    I’m going to try this tonight. My family loves pizza, and even when we eat outside, they prefer pizza combined with other side dishes. Your tostada pizza looks delicious even without toppings on it. The melted cheese on top is already enough to make anyone drool. I think adding veggies on top is good to make it a healthy meal for dinner.
