This Taco Pizza is the perfect mash-up for nights when you can’t decide between tacos or pizza!
Hi friends! Danae from Recipe Runner and I’m here to share my monthly guest post. Today I’m sharing one of my favorite foods to make and eat, pizza! Next to pizza, tacos are my other favorite food so it only made sense to combine the two and make this Taco Pizza!
Generally I share taco recipes on Tuesday for taco Tuesday and pizza on Friday for pizza Friday. I have no idea why we have dedicated days for specific foods, but if it means I get to eat pizza and tacos every week I’m okay with that! Today though since this is a mash-up of the two, I figured it needed it’s own special day. What should we name it? Pico Wednesday? Tacza Wednesday? I’ll stop now.
Whatever you want to call it there is one word to describe this Taco Pizza and probably a word I use too much when I talk about food, DELICIOUS! I need to keep a thesaurus around so I can look up new adjectives to describe how good food tastes. This pizza is great for a weeknight family dinner because in general most people like pizza and tacos…I actually don’t know anyone who doesn’t.
The pizza starts with a basic crust which you can make yourself or purchase the dough like I did because I was short on time. Instead of a sauce I mashed up a can of black beans with some jarred salsa and a couple of Mexican spices, essentially making my own version of refried beans. On top of the beans was of course some cheese and then seasoned ground beef. If beef’s not your thing go ahead and use ground turkey or skip the meat and keep it vegetarian. The pizza is then topped with all of the usual taco toppings, more cheese, lettuce, tomatoes, black olives, green onions, salsa and sour cream, or in my case plain Greek yogurt. If you’re looking for a new spin on tacos or pizza then this Taco Pizza is the perfect mash-up for you!
