INGREDIENTS:

1 tsp olive oil
1/2 cup chopped onions
6 garlic cloves, minced
1 pinch salt
2 tsp chili powder
1 tsp ground cumin
1 (15.5 oz) can pinto beans, undrained
3-4 Tbsp water
Enchilada Sauce ( See Recipe Below)*
8 (6″) uncooked corn tortillas
2 cups shredded Monterey Jack cheese
1 ripe avocado, halved, pitted, peeled, chopped coarsely
1 cup crumbled Queso Fresco (4 oz)
1/2 cup fresh cilantro, snipped
1/2 cup red onion, cut in slivers

Enchilada Sauce Ingredients:

1 Tbsp vegetable oil
1/2 cup chopped onion
1 Tbsp bottled minced garlic
Salt
1 (14-5 oz) can petite diced tomatoes, undrained
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
1 (28 oz) can red enchilada sauce
3/4 cup beef or vegetable broth
1/2 oz insweetened chocolate, chopped
1 Tbsp honey

(Sauce Directions):

In a large saucepan heat oil over medium-high heat. Add onion, garlic, and a pinch salt; cook and stir for 2 minutes. Stir in tomatoes and cayenne pepper. Cook, covered, for 4 to 5 minutes or until tomatoes can be easily mashed. Let cool slightly. Transfer tomato mixture to a food processor or blender. Cover and process or blend until smooth. Return mixture to saucepan. Stir in enchilada sauce, broth, chocolate, and honey. Bring to boiling over medium heat; reduce heat. Simmer, uncovered, about 20 minutes or just until sauce thickens enough to coat the back of a spoon. Season to taste with additional salt.

PIZZA DIRECTIONS:

1. Place a pizza stone on bottom rack of oven. Preheat oven to 450 F.

2. In a small saucepan heat oil over medium-high heat. Add onion, garlic, and salt; cook about 3 minutes or until onion and garlic are tender. Stir in chili powder and cumin; cook for 1 minute more. Remove from heat; stir in beans and 3 tablespoons of the water. Transfer mixture to a food processor or blender. Cover and pulse with several on/off turns until bean mixture is spreadable but still chunky, adding more water if necessary.

3. Working with one tortilla at a time, evenly spread a thin layer of the bean mixture on tortilla. Top with 1 to 2 tablespoons of the Enchilada Sauce and 1/4 cup of the Monterey Jack cheese. Transfer the topped tortilla to the pizza stone. Bake for 4 to 5 minutes or until cheese is bubbly and edges are crisp.

4. Transfer pizza to a cutting board; let cool for 1 minute. Top with some of the avocado, 2 tablespoons of the queso fresco, 1 tablespoon of the cilantro, and 1 tablespoon of the red onion. Repeat with remaining ingredients to make eight pizzas total.
