We love pizza, as most people do! I make it normally about once a week using those pizza crusts you can find in the refrigerated section at the grocery store. My parents gave me this tip about how good they were about 2 years ago and I haven’t looked back since! My favorite is the Pillsbury thin crust version (not sponsored I just really love them!).

I love being able to come up with my own “specialty” pizzas! I made this ah-mazing taco version and will be going back to it again and again! My inspiration for easy taco pizza came from those Mexican pizzas they used to serve at school. Or they still do? They were everyone’s favorite! And, I might add my version is WAY better, LOL!

Easy Taco Pizza

Ingredients

Taco Meat:

  • 1 pound ground beef I prefer ground chuck
  • 1 packet taco seasoning
  • 15 oz can pinto beans preferably no salt added
  • 1/2 tsp paprika
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 2/3 Cup water

Taco pizza sauce:

  • 15 oz can tomato sauce
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp onion powder
  • 1/2 tsp paprika
  • 1 tsp ground cumin

Pizza assembly:

  • 1 can thin crust pizza dough
  • 3 Cups shredded cheddar & monterey jack cheese blend
  • toppings: diced tomatoes shredded lettuce, chopped cilantro, sliced scallions, sour cream, taco sauce, etc.

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Brown ground beef over medium heat in skillet. Drain fat, add in the pinto beans and seasonings for the taco meat. Mix and let the seasonings coat the meat and cook until fragrant about 30 seconds. Add in the water, allow mixture to simmer over medium low heat.
  • While browning the meat, get the taco pizza sauce ready by placing all ingredients in a small sauce pan, mix, cover and let simmer until ready to assemble pizza, stirring occasionally.
  • While the taco meat and sauce is simmering, per the direction on the back of the pizza crust, pre bake the dough. After the first baking, layer as much sauce as you like on the pizza crust. Add about 2/3 of the meat mixture on top (try not to get too much of the meat's sauce or the crust might come out soggy.) Layer on the cheese evenly, back for an additional 10 minutes or per the directions on the back of the pizza crust can, until the cheese is bubbly and the crust is golden brown.
  • Top with your favorite pizza garnishes, cut, serve and enjoy!
