Mexican Pizza

1/2 C diced onion
1 can diced tomatoes, drained or 1 C prepared salsa
1/3 C frozen or canned corn
1 can refried beans (I used non-fat)
1/2 pkg. taco seasoning
3/4 C reduced fat cheddar cheese, shredded
1 whole wheat pizza crust
*any desired veggies can be used in the mixture - these were just the ones I had on hand.
**chicken, pulled pork or ground beef can also be added for a meaty mexican pizza. 
Preheat oven to 450 degrees.

In a medium pan, saute onions with a tablespoon of olive oil over medium heat. Add about 1 T of taco seasoning and combine. Once the onions are softened, about 5 minutes, add the drained tomatoes (I used diced tomatoes with Garlic and Olive Oil in them for added flavor, but any will do) and corn and the rest of the taco seasoning (to taste). Cook on medium low for about 5 minutes and then mix beans into veggie mixture.
To assemble the pizza, put desired amount of bean/veggie mixture into the middle of the pizza crust and spread to the edges.  Top with cheese and bake for 10 minutes directly on the oven rack.  

Let cool for a few minutes. Serve with taco sauce and reduced fat sour cream if desired.
