Salsa Pizza with Cheese Crust
This is no ordinary pizza! Spicy salsa-seasoned beef tops a cheese crust for a pizza that’s out of this world.

1 pound lean ground beef
1 1/4 cups Old El Paso® Thick ‘n Chunky salsa
2 cups Original Bisquick® mix
1/4 cup mild salsa-flavor or jalapeño-flavor process cheese spread
1/4 cup hot water
4 medium green onions, sliced (1/2 cup)
1 cup (4 ounces) shredded Colby-Monterey jack cheese

Heat oven to 375 degrees F. Grease large cookie sheet.

Cook beef in 10-inch skillet over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until brown; drain. Stir in salsa; remove from heat.

Stir Bisquick, cheese spread and hot water until soft dough forms. Turn dough onto surface dusted with Bisquick; roll in Bisquick to coat. Shape into ball; knead 5 times. Roll into 14-inch circle; place on cookie sheet. Spread beef mixture over crust to within 2 inches of edge. Sprinkle with onions. Fold edge over beef mixture. Sprinkle with cheese.

Bake 25 to 28 minutes or until crust is golden brown and cheese is melted.
