Recipe by Chef Mindi
This is really good and a nice comfort food. I imagine it would be good to also cook for a superbowl party or other gathering. It doesn't take many slices to fill you up, though! I came up with this one day when a local restaurant was closing and the taco pizza was my favorite item there. I think this is as good as theirs. I found it fun and easy to make too.
- 1⁄2 lb ground beef
- 1⁄2 lb pork sausage
- 6 ounces tomato paste
- 14 1⁄2 ounces of canned diced tomatoes, drained
