This dish was served at a small drive-in type eatery that my Aunt worked at in Detroit years ago. It sounds odd, but it's really good!

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Crush Doritos- put in bottom of a rectangular baking dish- I use a lasagna pan.
  3. Brown ground beef with salt, pepper, and garlic powder- DO NOT DRAIN OFF FAT!
  4. Spread cooked beef and all juices over the Doritos.
  5. Sprinkle all of the cheese over beef.
  6. Bake for about 20 minutes or until cheese is completely melted.
  7. While it is in the oven, cut lettuce into shreds and dice tomatoes.
  8. Toss with Italian dressing.
  9. Place a mound of the salad on the plate.
  10. Cut "pizza" into lasagna like squares and put it directly on the salad mixture.

This was interesting.. the taste grew on me with each bite. I wouldn't think of it as 'pizza', though.. more like a hot taco salad.. Thanks for posting!
