Taco Pizza

We love pizza in our house, sometimes we'll make it once a week and other times it might only be once a month. We used to order out a lot more than we do now, but now that I've got a really good recipe for the dough it's no big deal to make up a batch and get three pizzas out of it. Plenty for our family plus leftovers for lunch the next day and we can add whatever toppings we'd like.

Taco is one of my hubby's favorites and when I have extra seasoned meat in the fridge I like to make up a taco pizza for him.

It's especially good in the summer when I've got fresh tomatoes out of the garden to use. We keep ours pretty simple as he doesn't like refried beans. But really there's no wrong way to make this. It's much cheaper than take-out and tastes really good too!

Taco Pizza

Pizza dough, enough for at least one crust
2 cups seasoned taco meat {cumin, chili powder, garlic, salt, red pepper flakes}
1 cup taco sauce or salsa
1-1/2 cups mozzarella cheese
chopped lettuce
diced tomato
grated cheddar cheese
taco chips, crunched up

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. On a pizza stone or pan, roll out dough. Spread taco sauce or salsa over crust. Top with taco meat and mozzarella cheese. Bake for 15-20 minutes until crust is baked through and turning brown.

Remove from oven and immediately top with lettuce, tomatoes, taco chips and cheddar cheese. Cut into slices, serve with additional sauce or toppings if desired.
