1 (6 ounce) can tomato paste
3/4 cup water
1 (1.25 ounce) package taco seasoning mix, divided
1 teaspoon chili powder, or to taste
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper, or to taste
1 (16 ounce) can refried beans
1/3 cup salsa
1/4 cup chopped onion
1/2 pound ground beef
4 cups shredded Cheddar cheese
Shredded lettuce
Tomatoes (diced)
Four cheese Blend (or any cheese you like)

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F
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.

Spread a layer of the bean mixture on pizza dough, then a layer of the tomato mixture. Sprinkle with seasoned beef and top with cheddar cheese.
Bake in preheated oven for 10 to 15 minutes, or until crust is golden brown and cheese is melted. Turn pizzas halfway through baking.

Serve topped with lettuce,cheese, tomatoes,black olives, or anything else that you like on a taco. This recipe makes 2 small or one large pizza.

Personal Notes:
My favorite pizza by far! Try it, I think you will like it too. I like to crush taco shells or doritos on top too.
