At dinner we talked about what to name her creation. We made up all kinds of names...Pizzaco was one but decided that naming it what it is was a better idea, taco pizza....pizza with a Mexican flair!
The crust had that wonderful crunch on the bottom. I think that is because the directions say to pre-bake the crust for five minutes. Sometimes we get so eager that we forget to read directions! This time we followed the steps as written for preparing the crust....delicious crunch accompanied by Lindsey's great flavors!
Lindsey's Taco Pizza
1 Pillsbury Pizza Dough - Thin Crust
1 bottle taco sauce
1 can refried beans
3/4-1 pound hamburger meat (I used 96% lean.)
1/2-1 package Taco Seasoning mix
1 can green chilies, drained
1 can sliced black olives, drained
Grated Cheese (I used the Mexican cheese mix that came pre-grated.)
Salsa (I used hot, by preference.)
Avocado slices or guacamole
2 Tbsp chopped cilantro
Cook hamburger per directions on Taco Seasoning mix package.
Unroll the dough onto a greased baking sheet. Pre-bake per package directions.
Remove from oven.
Layer the following.
Spread taco sauce onto crust.
Spread refried beans over the crust.
Spread meat mixture over the beans.
Sprinkle chilies over meat.
Spread cheese over pizza.
Sprinkle black olives over the top.
Bake for remaining time.
To serve, cut the pizza as desired.
Garnish with lettuce, a spoonful of sour cream, a slice of avocado,a spoonful of salsa and a sprinkle of cilantro.
This is so tasty. The whole family loved it. Thank you Lindsey for sharing your creation with me!
