One of our favorite pizzas is the Taco Pizza, so I decided to try making one. It was as good as the one we order from the local Pizza chain.
Yield: 4-6 servings
This delicious version tastes just like a taco and I suppose it should with a name like, Taco Pizza.
- 3 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 (.25 ounce) package active dry yeast
- 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 tablespoon white sugar
- 1 cup warm water (110 degrees Fahrenheit)
- 1 pound ground beef
- 1 (16 ounce) can refried beans
- 1 (1.25 ounce) Taco Seasoning Mix
- ¼ cup water
- 1 whole avocado, diced
- 2 cups lettuce, shredded
- ½ cup salsa of your choice, divided
- 1 whole tomato, diced
- 4 green onions, sliced
- 2 cups Cheddar cheese, shredded, divided
- ¼ cup sour cream
- Preheat oven 375 degrees Fahrenheit.
- To make pizza dough, combine flour, salt, sugar and yeast in a large bowl. Mix in oil and 1 cup warm water.
- Spread onto a large pizza pan and pre-bake in oven for 8-10 minutes.
- Meanwhile to make pizza, place ground beef in large non-stick skillet and brown (do not over cook); drain. Add Taco Seasoning Mix and ¼ cup water. Blend until ground beef is completely covered with seasoning.
- Remove pizza crust from the oven and spread the refried beans to within ½-inch of the edge. Add seasoned ground beef, green onions, ¼ cup salsa, and 1¾ cup cheese.
- Place the pizza back into the oven and bake for an additional 20-22 minutes until the crust is starting to brown.
- Remove from the oven and top with lettuce, avocado, tomato, dollops of sour cream, and the last ¼ cup of cheese.
You can add ripe olives or anything you normally prefer on your tacos.
