  • 2 large eggs
  • 1⅓ cups masa harina (see Tip) or cornmeal
  • ½ cup sliced scallions
  • ½ cup water
  • 1 tablespoon chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup refried black beans, heated
  • 1 cup shredded pepper Jack cheese
  • 2 cups shredded romaine lettuce
  • 1 medium ripe avocado, thinly sliced
  • ¼ cup slivered red onion
  • ½ cup pico de gallo or fresh salsa
  • ¼ cup chopped fresh cilantro


  • Prep

  • Ready In

  1. Position rack in upper third of oven; preheat to 400°F. Line a large rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Beat eggs in a medium bowl. Mix in masa (or cornmeal), scallions, water, chili powder, garlic powder and salt. Spread evenly on the prepared baking sheet into a 9-by-11-inch oval.
  3. Bake the crust until lightly browned, about 10 minutes. Spread beans on the crust and sprinkle with cheese. Bake until the cheese is melted, about 5 minutes more.
  4. Top the pizza with romaine, avocado, onion, pico de gallo (or salsa) and cilantro.
  • Equipment: Parchment paper
  • Tip: The deep, corny flavor of masa harina—the lime-treated ground dried corn used to make tamales and tortillas—shines in this crust. Look for it in the baking or Latin section of supermarkets or at Latin grocers.

This was lunch! I needed something different! This is kind of an inverted taco pie w/cornbread top! Just crispier! Don't skip the crust add ins, they make a big difference! I kicked up the beans with cumin and a little salsa verde! Topped with fave veggies, and, soy pepper jack chz. Shared with my neighbor, we both loved it!! I warmed some spiced plums I made last night as a side. Perfect!!! If you want to make this a heartier meal, add fave taco meat.raf
