Mexican Pizzas

I made these mexican pizza's the other night and they were so GOOD! I had never even thought about making them before ... then I saw a great recipe, modified a bit for my family's taste and now its added to the list of favorites!

I have to say they are very filling too and better than *any* fast food! I wish I could get a better pic, I need one of those fancy cameras :)

heres the recipe:
1/2 lb ground beef
taco seasoning
1/4 cup water 1/2 can enchilada sauce (I get the red kind)
4 flour tortillas (10 inch)
cooking spray
2 tbsp chopped green onions
1/2 can (8 ounces) refried beans
1 cup diced tomatoes (I used cherry tomatoes chopped up pretty fine)
1 cup shredded cheese
sliced black olives, optional
Dollop of sour cream

**Heat a large skillet over medium heat and cook the ground beef until brown, drain. Return to the heat taco seasoning and water. Continue to cook for several minutes, until cooked through, stirring often.
**Spray both sides of each tortilla with cooking spray and place directly on the middle rack of your oven. Bake for about 6 minutes, turning halfway through, until golden brown and crispy. Watch carefully so they do not burn. Remove to a baking sheet.
**Microwave the refried beans for 30-60 seconds, or until spreadable.
Lay 2 tortillas out on a baking sheet; top each with a spoonful of the beans, ground beef, and 1/4 cup cheese. Top with another tortilla and lightly press down.
**Top the second tortillas each with meat mixture, 1/4 cup enchilada sauce. Layer with diced tomatoes, cheese, green onions and a few black olives.
**Bake for 5-10 minutes or until cheese is melted. Cut into wedges and top with sour cream and/or salsa if desired.
