Tostada Pizza

The following is a new recipe that I found that our family loves. It feeds our family of six to the brim. I am always looking for new recipes and since I found a winner, I thought I would share. Enjoy!
Tostada Pizza

2 c. flour
1 ½ t. baking powder
¾ t. salt
¾ c. milk
3 T. vegetable oil

1 lb. ground beef
1 envelope taco seasoning
1 (16 oz) can refried beans
1 c. salsa
1 c. cheddar cheese

½ c. green onions
1 c. shredded lettuce
½ c. chopped tomatoes
Chopped cilantro

1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
2. Prepare beef with seasoning mix, according to package directions.
3. Meanwhile, in a bowl, combine first 5 ingredients and stir until mixture leaves the side of the bowl. Press into a ball and knead 10 times in bowl.
4. Transfer dough to a floured surface and roll out to desired size pizza pan. Place dough on pizza pan, turning edges up to form a crust.
5. Bake for 5 minutes.
6. Spread beans over the crust, top with ground beef and salsa.
