  • 3/4 lb (375 g) lean ground beef
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 green pepper, chopped
  • 1 jar (440 mL) Old El Paso* Thick N’ Chunky Salsa (about 1 3/4 cups/425 mL))
  • 1 pre-baked pizza crust
  • 1 1/2 cups (375 mL) shredded Monterey Jack cheese


  • 1
    Brown beef in skillet over medium-high heat. Reduce heat to medium; stir in onions, garlic and green pepper, and cook 3 minutes longer or until onion is softened.
  • 2
    Stir in salsa and cook for 5 minutes or until most of the liquid has evaporated.
  • 3
    Place pizza crust on pizza pan. Remove beef mixture from heat and spoon onto pizza crust.
  • 4
    Sprinkle green pepper and cheese evenly over beef mixture.
  • 5
    Bake in a 450°F (230°C) oven for 20 to 25 minutes or until cheese has melted and pizza is heated through.

  • Tip: Add fibre and loads of flavour by switching to a whole wheat or multi-grain crust. Additonally, try adding a sprinkling of black beans over top of pizza, just before serving.
