What is on a taco pizza?
I have seen soooo many versions of taco pizza floating around. Many use refried beans as t he base, but I decided to take a different approach.
I used a store bought pizza crust (I know, such a cheater) and topped it with ground beef that had been cooked and combined with enchilada sauce. This gives you a taco filling that is moist and loaded with flavor. Spread that over your prepared crust and sprinkle with Mexican blend cheese.
Here are some toppings we suggest:
- Fresh diced tomatoes
- Olive slices
- Fresh cilantro
- Chopped lettuce
- Diced peppers
- Crumbled tortilla or cheese chips
- Sour cream
- Green onions
- Diced red onion
This is a great recipe to get the kids to help with. Once the ground beef has been cooked it is all assembly. Have them wash their hands and start sprinkling on the toppings. They will love being involved and you will get some quality time!
How to make a taco pizza:
- Gather your ingredients. You want to pick your favorite pizza crust and any toppings you will want to use.
- In a large skillet, cook the ground beef with chopped onion and diced peppers. Once the meat has browned and the peppers are soft you will sprinkle taco seasoning over the filling. Stir in one can of your favorite enchilada sauce.
- Spread the meat mixture over your prepared pizza crust.
- Top with a hefty amount of cheese.
- Sprinkle with your desired toppings and bake 10- ish minutes.
We like to serve this with homemade guacamole and sour cream. Sometimes even a dash of hot sauce. It is an easy weeknight dinner recipe the entire family will enjoy!
