Directions

Crust:

In a bowl, add the warm water and yeast. Stir and let the mixture sit until yeast turns foamy and dissolves.

Then, add in the flour, olive oil, salt and sugar. Mix together by hand or with a mixer at low speed until dough begins to form.

Once the dough is smooth and well combined, knead it by hand for about 10 minutes. Add more flour if needed.

After the dough becomes elastic and bouncy, shape it into a round and put in back in the bowl. Drizzle some olive oil over it, cover the dough and allow it to rise for 1 hour.

After an hour, the dough will appear to have expanded in size, poke the middle to release the extra air.

Preheat the oven to 450 F.

Take a skillet, grease it and drizzle it with some flour to prevent the dough from sticking.

Spread the dough on the skillet, building a thick crust around the edges and it is ready to be topped!

Topping:

In a pan, cook the ground beef, black beans and olives. Then mix in the taco seasoning.

Then, evenly spread the salsa on the pizza dough and spoon the beef mixture over it.

Sprinkle the cheese blend over the beef and top it off with the tomato halves.

Let it bake for 10-15 minutes until the crust turns brown and the cheese is melted.

Remove, cut and serve!
