Heat oven to 450°. Brown ground beef in large nonstick skillet over medium heat 8 to 10 minutes or until beef is not pink, breaking up into 3/4-inch crumbles. Remove from skillet with slotted spoon; season with salt. Place pizza crust on ungreased pizza pan or large baking sheet. Spread salsa evenly over crust, sprinkle with 1/2 of cheese. Top evenly with beef, chilies, tomatoes, onion, and remaining cheese. Bake in 450° oven 11 to 13 minutes or until topping is hot and cheese is melted. Sprinkle with cilantro; cut into 8 wedges and serve immediately.
