Mexican Pizza

This isn't very Mexican, but it's very requested at our house. No pizza night is complete without it! It's also fast and easy.

1 unbaked pizza crust - homemade, store bought, mix, swiped from a neighbor's counter - whatever!
1 14 - 16 ounce can of refried beans
1 12 - 24ounce bottle of your favorite salsa, taco sauce, picante sauce, etc.
2 - 4 cups cheese - cheddar, Mexican blend, etc.

1 ) Spread the beans on the crust. Pour on as much sauce as you like. Don't skimp! Let the crust rise if needed.

2 ) Bake at 400 (or whatever temp is recommended) until the edges are getting a bit golden and the bottom is nearly done.

3 ) Top with cheese and return to the oven until the cheese is melted, bubbly, and maybe a bit browned.

4 ) Remove from the oven. Cut.  If you like, put out bowls of chopped lettuce, olives, salsa, peppers, etc to top the slices.
