"I was looking for a recipe for a taco style pizza, but couldn't find exactly the kind I was wanting so I decide to wing it and came up with this one myself. The results were great. My husband said it was the best one he'd ever had! For an extra treat, top with lettuce, tomato and sour cream." — DESHL

Very easy and very tasty! This is perfect for a nice summer meal. If you love tacos and you love pizza then this combination is for you! I used "Taco Seasoning II" from this site vs. using a packaged taco mix. I also saved time using a pre-made dough vs. making it homemade. I sauteed about 1/4 cup of onion along with the ground beef for a little extra flavor. After the "pizza" cooled a bit, I topped it with all the typical "taco" toppings to make it nice and pretty: shredded lettuce, chopped de-seeded tomatoes, sliced black olives, thin sliced green onion, and a few well placed dollups of sour cream and homemade guacamole! The leftovers are great too... that is is you have any!
The best thing about this recipe is the crust. It really did turn out so well. I will use the crust recipe in the future. My only complaint with the topping is that the dominant flavor of this dish is the taco seasoning packet which just isn't my favorite. You must really enjoy the flavor of packaged taco seasoning mix to like the finished product here. I think it would be far better to follow the recipe and substitute your own spices (chili powder, cumin, garlic, a little oregano, etc.)
We did these on the grill using tortillas instead of the pizza dough. Brushed the tortillas with a bit of olive oil, browned on one side, flipped them over and then added the toppings. Mexican food heaven!!
We use Tyler Florence's pizza recipe so I can't comment on this one but the idea to mix the refried beans with the salsa was a good one. We browned the beef and chopped onion together, added 1 cup of water and the taco seasoning and cooked it down as directed on the package. We warmed a can of refried beans with enough salsa to make it the right consistency to use as the base sauce. We put the beans down then the crumbled beef and cheese and cooked it in a 500 degree oven. We added chopped tomato and lettuce and piped sour cream over in a sandwich bag with one corner cut off when it came out of the oven. Best taco pizza we've ever had. Thanks for the idea.
Yummy! You have to serve this with crushed Doritos on top and hot sauce - trust me!!!
A great recipe that is simple, inexpensive, and very tasty. I don't have a bread maching so I used a store bought pizza crust (Boboli brand). I also didn't notice that the recipe was for 2 pizzas until I started cooking. I made 1 pizza using the full 1/2 lb of ground beef, and mixed the other ingredients as stated in the recipe. While assembling the pizza I used what looked right to me - not necessarily half of everything.
As a Mexican food LOVER..I laughed when I realized i'd never made Taco Pizza! Well I did, and it was great! I used taco sauce instead of tomato paste + and took the heeded advise about the crushed Doritos..yumm..will be making this at least once a month! Thanks!
I tried this out on my friends, we all loved it! Added a diced tomato, shredded lettuce and sour cream. We will deffinatly be having this again.
