Who doesn't love pizza? You'd be hard-pressed to find anyone in the United States who doesn't at least like pizza. There are many variations on the traditional pepperoni and cheese pizza; one of the reasons this dish is so popular is because it's so customizable.

Mexican pizza is an amazing variation. If your Mexican nights have grown boring with the same tacos week after week, then you need to switch up the menu and serve this recipe instead. This particular Mexican pizza uses refried beans and cheddar cheese for its main toppings.

Refried beans on a pizza may sound a little odd, but once you read through this recipe you'll understand our thinking here. We wanted to make this pizza Mexican from the dough up! Fortunately, it won't require a lot of effort on your part to make this recipe.

In fact, this is one of the easiest Mexican pizza recipes you'll find. The reason for that is that you're not making your own dough here. Instead, you'll be using pre-made pizza dough. You'll still have to roll it out, but that step is not as complicated as the media often makes it seem.
