Another Pillsbury goes to Karen Durrett from Oregon for creating this wonderful dish in the 1994 Pillsbury Bake-Off. A *tostizza* is a combination of a pizza and a tostado. It's piled high with chicken and black beans that'll make your mouth water.

Perfect! These came together so quickly and was so yummy, we decided to do the "Cha-cha" around the house! I used my own biscuit type of dough, but other then that, stay directly to the glorious recipe. I didn't overload the dough - as I didn't want to get anything to soggy, and they came out lovely! I used a hot & chunky salsa, and added some fresh jalapeno's along with the green pepper. Great recipe, one that deserves big 5 stars or more! Thanks, for posting my PAC baby 2011 - DuChick!

Quick, easy, and very tasty---my favorite combo. Also loved the spiciness. Most of all loved the ease of the crust and the potential for variations. Thanks for posting.
