When you’re craving Mexican food and pizza on the same night, reach for Phyllo dough instead of taco shells. Replace the marinara with enchilada sauce, and load on the cheese and beans to combine the best flavors of both worlds.
- 10 sheets Athens® Phyllo Dough (9″x14″), thawed
- 1 egg white
- 2 tablespoons canola oil
- 1 1/2 tablespoons water
- 3 tablespoons red enchilada sauce
- 1 jalapeno chicken sausage, casing removed and crumbled
- 1/4 cup black beans, drained and rinsed
- 1/4 cup Mexican style canned corn, drained
- 1/2 cup shredded cheese, taco blend
Phyllo Crust: Thaw one roll of Phyllo, following thawing instructions on package. Preheat oven to 375ºF.
In a small mixing bowl, combine egg white, oil and water with a fork. Open the Phyllo and cover the sheets with a damp towel or plastic wrap to prevent drying out. Place one sheet of Phyllo on cutting surface and lightly coat with egg white mixture. Repeat with nine more sheets of Phyllo. Cut the layered Phyllo in half widthwise to create two pizza bases and place on a baking tray. Reroll unused sheets and follow storing instructions on package.
Bake for 8 minutes or just until the Phyllo starts to brown. Remove from oven and cool.
Spread half the enchilada sauce over each baked pizza base. Top each pizza with sausage, beans, corn and cheese. Bake on baking tray for 10-12 minutes. Remove and cut into pieces. Serve.
Assembled pizzas can be wrapped in plastic wrap and frozen prior to baking. To serve, unwrap and follow baking instructions.
Egg white mixture holds Phyllo layers together better than cooking spray.
