  • Taco Meat:
  • 1 lb ground beef
  • 1 packet taco seasoning mix
  • 2/3 cup water
  • Pizza Toppings:
  • 1 cup refried beans (optional, for a base layer)
  • 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese (or Mexican blend)
  • 1 cup shredded lettuce
  • 1 cup diced tomatoes
  • 1/2 cup sliced black olives
  • 1/2 cup diced red onion
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1 jalapeño, sliced (optional)
  • Sour cream (for drizzling)
  • Salsa or taco sauce (for drizzling)

Instructions

  1. Prepare the Pizza Dough:
  • Preheat your oven to 425°F (220°C). Roll out the pizza dough on a floured surface to your desired thickness and shape. Transfer the dough to a greased baking sheet or pizza stone.
  1. Cook the Taco Meat:
  • In a skillet over medium heat, cook the ground beef until browned. Drain any excess fat. Add the taco seasoning mix and water, stir well, and simmer until the sauce thickens, about 5-7 minutes.
  1. Assemble the Pizza:
  • (Optional) Spread a thin layer of refried beans over the pizza dough for an extra flavor base.
  • Evenly distribute the cooked taco meat over the dough.
  • Sprinkle shredded cheese generously over the top.
  1. Bake the Pizza:
  • Place the assembled pizza in the preheated oven and bake for 12-15 minutes, or until the crust is golden and the cheese is melted and bubbly.
  1. Add Fresh Toppings:
  • Remove the pizza from the oven and let it cool for a few minutes.
  • Top the pizza with shredded lettuce, diced tomatoes, sliced black olives, diced red onion, and chopped cilantro. Add sliced jalapeños if you like some heat.
  1. Serve:
  • Drizzle with sour cream and salsa or taco sauce.
  • Slice and serve immediately. Enjoy your taco pizza!
