Yield: Serves 4

Prep Time: 20 minutes

Cook Time: 35 minutes

Ingredients:

1 package store bought pizza dough
2 tablespoons olive oil
1/2 pound lean ground beef
1/2 red onion, diced
1 jalapeno, seeds removed, diced
1 green pepper, diced
1 15oz can Black-eyed peas, drained, rinsed
1 small tomato, diced
1/4 cup cilantro
1 cup Mariana sauce
2 cups mozzarella, shredded
salt and pepper to taste

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Preheat a skillet to medium-high heat. Add the olive oil, ground beef, and s&p. Saute for a few minutes until the beef is no longer pink. Add the onion, jalapeno, green pepper and continue to cook until softened. Next, add the tomato, black-eyed peas and cilantro. Cook for another few minutes and remove skillet from heat.

To make the pull-apart pizza, spray a large loaf pan with non-stick cooking spray. You’ll want to place some parchment paper in the loaf pan that over hangs by two inches so it’s easier to pull out the bread.

Take the dough and roll out into a 12 x 20 inch rectangle. Pour marinara on top, followed by black-eyed pea mixture. Cut the rectangle into 5 equal sized strips. Put the strips on top of each other and cut into five or six stacks. Place stacks against each other in the loaf pan. Sprinkle top with mozzarella. Bake for 30 minutes and then pour butter over the top. Bake for another 30 minutes. Remove and cool before serving.
