can’t decide what to have for dinner? well, if you’re craving mexican food and pizza tonight, this simple recipe is the best of both worlds.

and it was a great way to repurpose leftover meat stuffing from the pork empanadas the other night (see previous yumyumyummers recipe). gotta love leftover redux.

– preheat oven to 400F

prep the dough:
– sprinkle some whole-wheat flour on a clean surface before rolling out the fresh pizza dough (i bought some fresh from the bakery.)
– using a rolling pin, flatten out the dough into a thin, round pie
– sprinkle some more flour on the dough pie, flip over before applying the rolling pin again
– place the prepped dough pie on a pizza stone (at room temperature) or a lightly-greased, round baking pan

prep the toppings:
– 1-1.5 cups spicy fajita mixture (see previous yumyumyummers recipe)
– 1 cup fresh organic baby spinach
– fresh mozzarella (grated)

prep the pie:
– spread 2 tbsp plain, low-fat greek yogurt evenly on pizza dough
– lightly drizzle hot sauce
– season w/ ground black peppercorns
– add a bed of spinach leaves, then add spicy fajita mixture
– sprinkle mozzarella (grated) evenly over toppings
– season w/ ground black peppercorns

bake the pie:
– bake flatbread at 400F for 20min, or until crust is golden brown
– remove from oven & allow to cool on rack before slicing

food styling:
– serve w/ organic mixed greens on the side
– pairs nicely w/ your fave cerveza
