Taco Pizza RecipeYou might be tired of hearing me say this, but my family loves to make pizza.  We eat homemade pizza weekly, and I’m always trying to find new ways to dress up our dough.  This week we had Tacos on the menu for dinner, and I doubled the batch of taco meat that I made for lunches.  Since we had so much leftover I decided to put together a pizza with it.  It was so tasty!  And there wasn’t much work required either, which makes it a winner in my book.  Enjoy!

Taco Pizza:


Pizza Dough (visit our Favorite Pizza Recipes post)

Taco Meat (I used ground beef seasoned with taco seasoning – approximately one cup – just enough to cover crust)

Colby-Jack Shredded Cheese

Jalapenos (sliced)

Tomato (chopped)

Lettuce (shredded)

Taco Pizza hot out of the oven  (before Tomato & Lettuce)

Taco Pizza hot out of the oven (before Tomato & Lettuce)


Preheat your pizza stone in a 450º oven.   Sprinkle flour on a flat surface and roll out your dough.  Sprinkle a bit of cornmeal onto the hot stone and then slide your dough onto the stone.  Spread the meat over the dough up to about an inch from the edge.  Top the meat with shredded cheese, add jalapenos if you’d like then put the pizza in the oven.  Bake for about 15 minutes until the cheese is golden.  Cook time may vary oven to oven, so eyeball it the first time you make the pizza and take it out when it looks done.  After you take the pizza out of the oven slice it and add shredded lettuce and chopped tomato to the individual slices.  Add sour cream if you’d like as well.  I wouldn’t recommend adding the tomato and lettuce to the entire pizza unless you are going to eat the whole thing right out of the oven.  The pizza won’t reheat well with the tomato and lettuce on it.
