Recipe: Taco Pizza

Taco Pizza… now doesn’t that sound good?... It combines two family favorites….  Tacos and Pizza!  Make parts of it ahead for a quick and easy weeknight meal.

I serve it with a side salad of shredded lettuce and dollops of guacamole and sour cream.   This side salad is one served at one of our favorite Mexican restaurants and has become a family favorite.


I highly recommend making your own Taco Sauce … it’s very easy.. you probably have the makings in your cupboard.  Put it into a saucepan and let it simmer, 15  to 20 minutes is all it takes.   Save time and make it ahead.

You can also make the Taco meat ahead too..  so putting the pizza together is super quick.  Use my Taco Seasoning recipe for really great Taco Meat.

Use both the green and the white parts of the green onion.

Use the quantities as a guide, add more or less to your tastes.  I do caution you not to overdo the Taco Sauce, otherwise the crust will get soggy.  Don’t overdo the Taco meat too much either otherwise the pizza will get too heavy.

I know the cooking instructions on the can tell you to cook the crust a little first, I don’t… and it comes out perfect.

I hope you try this!
