Mexican Pizza

2 prepared 12-inch Pizza Crusts
16-oz. can Refried Beans
1 package Taco Seasoning Mix
1/4 cup Sour Cream
1 large Green Onion, thinly sliced
1 cup Cheddar Cheese, grated
1 cup Monterey Jack Cheese, shredded
1/2 cup sliced Ripe Olives, drained
4-oz. can diced Green Chilies
1 cup prepared Salsa
2 Tbs. fresh Cilantro, chopped
1/4 cup fresh Tomato, chopped
Lettuce, chopped
Red onions, chopped
Cheddar cheese, grated
Sliced Jalapenos, optional garnish
Sour cream, optional garnish

In a medium-sized mixing bowl, combine the refried beans with the taco seasoning mix, sour cream, and green onion slices. Spread half of the bean mixture over each pizza crust to within about an inch from the edge. Top with a half-cup of the cheddar cheese and a half-cup of the Monterey Jack cheese on each pizza. Sprinkle one-quarter cup of ripe olive slices and one-quarter cup of the green chilies on each pizza.
Bake as directed on the pizza crust manufacturer's package or until the crust is crisp and the cheese is melted.

Top each pizza with several tablespoons of the salsa, then add a sprinkling of cilantro, chopped tomatoes, chopped lettuce, salsa, chopped red onions, grated Cheddar cheese, and jalapenos and sour cream, if desired. Slice to serve.
