Taco Pizza



Pizza isn't my favorite.  Don't worry, keep reading!  I am still the same blogger you know and love :)  I eat pizza, and enjoy it, but I could also go without it.  Taco Pizza on the other hand, that I love!  Unfortunately my family does not agree with me, so I almost never get it.  For a girls night in, my friend Katie and I have been known to get Taco Pizza from a local place, along with a pack of Budweiser Select.  Only 55 calories a piece.....girl math (counteracts the calories in the pizza).   We may or may not play Just Dance on the Wii as well.  Just one of the things I am really going to miss with moving 800 miles away :(

My 6 year old loves to make pizza at home.  Recently, I got the brilliant idea to make myself Taco Pizza on these nights!  Genius! In the process of cleaning out my freezer, I found a couple balls of Naan dough.  These were the perfect size for our dinner.  My son made his a plain cheese pizza, but I topped mine to the max!  I am so excited to add this to our pizza nights. 


Taco Pizza
Printable Recipe

1 pound pizza dough (recipe found here)
Taco Meat
Refried Beans (optional, I don't use them)
1/4 cup Taco Sauce
1 cup Cheddar Cheese
1 1/2 cup Lettuce, chopped
1 Tomato, chopped
1/4 cup Black Olives, chopped
1 cup Nacho Cheese Doritos, crushed

Preheat oven to 450 degrees.  Roll dough out onto a greased baking tray.  Pierce dough with a fork.  Bake for about 5 minutes. Remove from oven.

Spread Taco Sauce over dough.  If using beans mix them in with the meat.  Spread meat over the sauce.  Sprinkle with cheese.  Bake for 10 minutes, or until cheese is bubbly.  Top with lettuce, tomato, black olives and Doritos.  You can also top with more cheese and serve with additional taco sauce as desired.

Interesting! I don't think I can quite imagine it, especially with the crunchy chips, but it sounds like something I'd be more than curious to try :)

You know whats funny, I could go without pizza too. I was spoiled my whole life with my grandfathers homemade pizza, the best I've ever had. But I could totally get into this Taco Pizza!! Haha it sounds amazing! I love the doritos on top, nice touch!

Taco pizza is so fun. There's a local restaurant that has a great one. Your homemade version sounds great too!

Man could I go for this. Rachel thinks I'm insane to want to mess with the plain old pizza formula, and that I'm even crazier to want to put lettuce on a pizza. I first had something like this in Japan (of all places). Glad to hear I'm not alone in loving this :)

Taco pizza is awesome! I haven't had it in many years. I used to go to a pizza place that served it. Now I can make it at home. Yay!! :-)

This is awesome! I love taco anything. Now I've got to convince the hubby to try it.

Taco pizza is a favorite of mine and I can never convince anyone to get it with me. Needless to say I get it very seldom.

Im a sucker for anything 'taco' and pizza is a bit of a staple in this house. Love the idea of this as an individual 'pie' for myself. ;)

How can you go wrong combining pizza and tacos together? This would be a huge hit in my house!
