    Now who doesn’t like Taco’s?  Every now and then, it’s nice to switch it up a bit and make them a little differently.  This is pretty quick & simple, and utilizes the Pillsbury Pizza Dough in a tasty way as well.

Taco Pizza

What You’ll Need:

Pizza Dough – I used Pillsbury, but you can use whichever you prefer
16 oz. salsa or picante sauce
8 oz of re-fried beans
1 lb ground beef
1 onion diced
2 tbsp chili powder
1/2 tsp cayenne
1/2 tsp garlic powder
2 cup shredded cheddar cheese

Preheat over to 350 degrees.  Press pizza dough into a 9×13 baking pan.  I like to bake it for about 10 minutes so that it isn’t to soggy from all the toppings.  While that is in the oven, brown your hamburger, an add all your spices & diced onions.  Once those 2 tasks are completed, it’s time to layer it up!

Layer 1:  pizza dough
Layer 2:  spread re-fried beans across the entire crust
Layer 3:  picante sauce
Layer 4:  ground beef mixture
Layer 5:  cheese

Bake for 1/2 hour or until your cheese is lightly browned.  Now, when you take this out of the oven, get ready to garish it with lettuce, tomatoes, onion, green pepper, crunched up doritos, more salsa, black olives, sour cream….the sky is the limit!  Enjoy!

     Sometimes when I have no idea what to make for dinner, I'll whip together a pizza of some kind.  This time is was Taco Pizza.  It's so quick, will save you a lot of money from your local pizza  place, and it tastes even better.  Just a hint….  Always keep a couple cans of 16.3oz Pillsbury Grands.  They really come in handy when you can't think of anything to make for dinner.  

Taco Pizza

What you'll need:

1 – 16.3 oz can of Pillsbury Grands  Squish together the entire package of rolls & form into a ball.  Sprinkle your table with flour, and press your dough out with you fingers.  Flip over so both sides have a light coating of flour on each side to prevent your dough from sticking to the your surface while rolling out.  Roll out until it fit's your pizza pan or cookie sheet.  Pour 2 tbsps of olive oil on your pan, and coat the pain with the oil.  Place your rolled dough on the pan, and press all the way to the corners.  I do the dough work while I'm frying the meat mixture below.

Meat Mixture
1 lb lean ground beef
1 small onion
2-3 tbsp chili powder
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp cayenne (optional)

*1 lb grated cheddar cheese

Fry all the ingredients until fully cooked.  Sprinkle on top of the dough, and spread out evenly over the dough.  Next add your grated cheddar cheese.   Bake at 375 for approximately 20 minutes or until crust is a golden brown.  Top it off with your choice of lettuce, tomatoes, olives, onions, chopped green onion tops, sour cream, taco sauce or picante etc.  This is so good, and it satisfies your urge for junk food pizza!  Enjoy!!
