Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Position rack in upper third of oven; preheat to 400 degrees F. Line a large rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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 Read More
