You heard me, Pizza Burrito. Two of my favorite things join hands in this delicious combination to bring you a tangy, spicy, salty, cheesy, creamy, crunchy, soul satisfying bite. This dish was born on the drive home from a weekend climbing trip as my husband and I discussed what we should have for dinner. His go-to is pizza, and mine is burritos. We compromised/brought both our favorites to the next level.

There are two ways to go about pizza burrito making, and both are amazing. 1) make a tortilla pizza and add burrito filling, or 2) make a calzone filled with both pizza and burrito fillings. I like the calzone version better, but the tortilla version is a little less work.

I realized as I wrote this recipe I have never posted about pizza, pizza dough, or guacamole! . I’m sorry. I will rectify my oversight soon.

 Ingredients
  • Pizza sauce
  • Tortillas or Pizza Dough
  • Leftover refried beans, or canned
  • Vegan or regular mozzarella cheese
  • Soyrizo or other fake taco meat
  • Guacamole
  • Hot Sauce

Instructions

Tortilla Version

  1. Preheat oven to 375.
  2. Place tortillas (1 per person) flat on a baking sheet and spread pizza sauce in a thin layer on tortilla topping with cheese.
  3. Bake tortilla pizza in hot oven for 10-12 minute until cheese is melted and tortilla is starting to brown.
  4. While tortilla pizza is baking heat beans and taco meat until warmed through.
  5. When tortilla pizzas are done top with beans and taco meat, roll up, and cover with guacamole and hot sauce.

Calzone Version 

  1. Preheat oven to 400.
  2. Roll out pizza dough into an oval about 1/4″ thick (1 oval per person).
  3. Spread pizza sauce over half the oval and top with cheese, heated beans, and heated taco meat.
  4. Fold the naked half of the pizza dough over the topping and pinch the edges together to keep the filling inside.
  5. Bake in hot oven until golden brown, about 15-20 minutes.
  6. Finish with guacamole and hot sauce and be careful because the filling is HOT!!
