Recipes from Martha Ruth Leonard
1 lb. lean ground beef or ground turkey
5-oz. can dark red kidney beans or pinto beans, rinsed and drained
For filling, in a large skillet cook the beef or turkey til no longer pink; drain off fat. Stir in half the beans and all of the salsa. Mash the remaining beans with a fork or potato masher; add beans to the meat mixture. Bring to boiling; reduce heat. Simmer, uncovered, about 5 minutes or until most of the liquid has evaporated. Cool about 5 minutes.
Spray a 15x10x1 baking pan with nonstick coating; set aside. On a lightly floured surface, roll one sheet of pizza dough into a 12x10 rectangle. Trim dough to a 10-inch square, reserving trimmings.
Spoon half of the shredded cheese down the center of the dough square. Spoon half the meat mixture over the cheese. Moisten the dough edges with milk. Bring the edge sides of dough together over the filling; stretch and pinch to seal well. Fold the ends up and pinch to seal.
Repeat the process with the remaining dough, cheese and meat mixture.
With the leftover dough, cut out designs and place on top. Sprinkle tops with 1/2 tbsp. each of cornmeal.
Bake for 30 minutes or until golden brown in a 400° pre-heated oven. Slice into serving size pieces. Serve with extra salsa if desired.
