This easy, fast, healthy pizza, makes for a great dinner or a fast lunch on the weekends.  Add a side salad and you have a complete meal!


  • 1 1/4 cups shredded Cheddar cheese
  • 1/4 cup shredded Monterey Jack cheese
  • 2 tablespoons of olive oil
  • 8 (6-inch) flour tortillas
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 1 (15 ounce) Black Beans, drained
  • 1/2 cup salsa, mild or spicy
  • 2 ounces canned chopped green chiles
  • 1 cup pulled pork or chicken


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Combine half of the Cheddar with all of the Monterey Jack cheese in a bowl and set aside.
  2. Brush a baking sheet with 1 tablespoon oil and arrange 4 of the tortillas in a single layer.
  3. Sprinkle the other remaining half of the cheddar cheese over each tortilla. Top with remaining 4 tortillas and bake for 4-5 minutes or until lightly browned.
  4. While tortillas are baking, heat 1 tablespoon of oil in a skillet and cook onions until soft and browned. Add beans to onions and partially mash using the back of your fork (or a potato masher).
  5. Remove tortillas from the oven and top each tortilla evenly with bean mixture. Top evenly with salsa, chiles, pulled pork and cheese blend.
  6. Put back into oven and bake for about 10-15 minutes or until cheese is melted.
