Taco Salad Pizza

I made up this recipe last year after having something similar at California Pizza Kitchen, I hope you enjoy it. It has just the right amount of zing to make it special.

4 chicken cutlets, seasoned and cooked
1 ball of pizza dough
1 can black beans, drained
2 cups shredded cheese

Cook chicken in saute pan and chop up. Take ball of dough (raised) and roll out and place on pizza pan. Spread 1 can rinsed black beans and 2 cups shredded cheese and chopped chicken on top of dough. Bake for 20-25 (375 degrees) minutes or until pizza is done.

Ingredients for Avocado Ranch Dressing
1 avocado
1 cup milk
1 pkg spicy ranch dressing mix (follow package directions)
1 cup mayo
1/2 c cilantro
Mix ranch dressing mix and mayo and chill for an hour. Place into food processor along with 1 avacado and 1/2 c cilantro, pulse until creamy.

2 tomatoes, chopped
Avocado Ranch Dressing

After pizza comes out of oven immediently top with shredded lettuce, chopped tomato and drizzle 1 cup of avocado ranch dressing. Slice and serve
