    1. Cook and stir the beef mince, onion and garlic together in a large pan over medium-high heat until the beef is completely browned.
    2. Stir the taco seasoning mix and water into the mince mixture; bring to the boil, reduce heat to medium-low and simmer, stirring occasionally, for 5 minutes.
    3. Preheat an oven to 180 C / Gas 4.
    4. Place the prepared pizza base on a baking tray.
    5. Blend the chopped tomatoes with garlic and onion, salsa and coriander in a blender until smooth.
    6. Spread the refried beans in an even layer on the prepared pizza base, leaving a border of about 1cm uncovered around the outside.
    7. Spread some of the tomato mixture over the refried beans in an even layer; reserve the remaining sauce.
    8. Scatter the beef mixture over the layer of sauce.
    9. Cover the beef with grated cheese.
    10. Bake in the preheated oven until the cheese is bubbly and the edges of the pizza are golden brown, 15 to 20 minutes; set aside to cool 5 minutes.
    11. Top the pizza with sliced lettuce, chopped tomatoes, black olives, spring onions and grated spicy Cheddar cheese. Serve with the reserved tomato sauce, soured cream salsa.

    Tip:

    For a crispier pizza base, bake the pizza directly on the oven rack.
