How to Make Taco Pizza
Step 1: Start by cooking your ground beef in a skillet. Crumble and cook until the meat is cooked through and crumbled.
Step 2: Roll out your pizza dough. Top with refried beans and then sprinkle your seasoned ground beef on top.
Step 3: Add all your favorite taco toppings, I added red beans or you can use black beans. Add a little salsa and how about some corn. Sprinkle with cheese and bake in the oven as directed in the printable recipe below.
Can I Use Ground Turkey Instead of Beef
You can use ground turkey if you would like. Just use ground turkey or even ground chicken to replace the ground beef.
Cook it in the skillet and crumble until it is fully cooked.
Topping Ideas for Taco Pizza
- Drizzle with sour cream
- Pico De Gallo
- Hot Sauce for amplifying the heat
- Fresh jalapeno slices
Can I Double This Recipe
Feel free to make as many pizzas as you need. Just batch cook your pizzas so you get an even cook. If you do your pizza on the bottom rack it can cook the crust a bit too fast.
Can I Use Homemade Pizza Dough
If you are a fan of homemade pizza dough, go right ahead and make your favorite dough. I personally don’t mind using store-bought dough. It helps to speed up the prep.
As a busy mom, I appreciate cutting corners when I can on nights I don’t have time to make everything from scratch.
How to Store Leftover Pizza
Store your leftover pizza in the refrigerator. It will store for up to three days. Anything after I recommend you use your best judgment.
In terms of reheating, you can do the microwave, or reheat on the skillet on low heat. I find that reheating it in the skillet helps to keep the crust nice and crispy. Where reheating in the microwave can sog up the crust a bit.
