If you have never tried a taco pizza, you must try this recipe and see what you have been missing.
Our family loves tacos, tacos in a bag, and taco pizza. My husband and I have eaten taco pizza many times at our local Pizza Hut. We have not been able to find this any other place, and the last time we ordered it there, they said it was being removed from the menu.
One day we were craving a taco pizza, so I created this recipe.
A taco pizza has a layer of refried beans spread on it instead of a sauce. I did add some meat to mine also. You can be versatile with the toppings and add anything that you would add to your taco.
I started with a crust made from a package mix that I had available. You can use any pizza crust. .
Here is how I made this taco pizza.
Prepare crust as directed, spread on pizza pan. Bake 9 minutes.
Spread layer of refried beans and ground beef.
Sprinkle shredded cheese over the top.
Return to oven for cheese to melt and crust to bake longer.
Remove from the oven and build the toppings.
Cut into slices and then add the salsa and sour cream. Sprinkle with colored tortilla strips or crumbled corn chips (Forgot in picture)
