  4. Arrange three tortillas on the baking sheet. Divide and spread refried beans over each tortilla and top with beef mixture and 1 tbsp of cheese. Cover with a tortilla. Divide and spread the pizza sauce over the tortilla then sprinkle with remaining cheese.
  5. Bake until the cheese is melted and bubbling, about 5 minutes. Top with lettuce, tomato, and onions.
