We used to go to a pizza place in Georgia that served a taco pizza. This is my version. It is different, but really a nice blend of the two. Prep time is if crust is pre-made.
- 12 -14 inches pizza dough
- 6 -8 ounces pizza sauce (your choice)
- 6 -8 ounces taco sauce (hot or mild your choice)
- 1⁄2 lb ground beef
- 2 tablespoons taco seasoning
- 2 tablespoons water
- cheddar cheese, as desired
- black olives
- onion (sliced)
- extra cheese
- sour cream
- extra taco sauce
- Brown ground beef, drain fat, add taco seasoning and water, mix well and set aside to cool.
- Mix taco sauce and pizza sauce together.
- Spread sauce on crust.
- Top sauce with"taco meat", any optional ingredients desired, cheddar cheese.
- Keep in mind you will add more cheese when it is done.
- Bake@ 425° until crust is browned and cheese is bubbly.
- Top with a light bed of shredded lettuce.
- Sprinkle with cheese, arrange onion and tomato slices.
- Dot with sour cream and drizzle with taco sauce.
- If you desire add black olives for appearance.
I made serveral changes to this recipe but it was great! I used a canned pizza crust and then used enchilada sauce instead of pizza sauce and taco sauce. Which tasted awesome! Browned taco seasoned ground turkey with a chopped chipolte chili and added jalepeno refried beans once the meat was cooked. I added the cheese, put it back in the oven to melt the cheese and then added the lettuce, tomato, onion etc. I also used sliced jalepenos and topped it all off with green chili with pork...omg...the kids scarffed it down! Great starter recipe. A real keeper in our house.
YUM! I made some changes to suit us but followed your general recipe. I used 1lb. ground turkey and seasoned according to the meat amount. I added chicken broth while cooking the meat. I knew it was going to be cooked twice so I wanted it really moist to keep it from drying out. I did leave out the pizza sauce (personal pref) but the taco sauce was right on. Now our regular pizza has some competition. I will make this again. It's also a nice change from tacos all the time. Best to eat it all at one sitting since taco toppings don't reheat well. It wasn't a problem for us ;)
I also cooked my crust on the grill (one side and flip, add sauce, meat, and cheese to melt). This was delicious and very attractive with the lettuce/tomato. Thanks SwoR, for posting. Roxygirl
