What do you do when you have half the ingredients to make tacos and the other half to make pizza? Make Taco Pizza!! I googled some recipes, but then got lazy and made up my own.
1 lb. ground meat (I used turkey)
1 taco seasoning package
1 can black beans
1/2 can tomato sauce
1/2 onion (I used purple)
1 ready-made pizza dough (I used Trader Joe’s whole wheat dough)
1 tsp. salsa seasoning or other spicy spice (optional)
Roll out dough and bake for 6 minutes. Meanwhile chop and saute onion. Add ground meat and brown. Drain and add rinsed black beans, taco seasoning package and 1/2 can of tomato sauce. Stir to combine and then put on the half-baked pizza. Top with cheese and bake for an additional 6 minutes or until cheese is melted. EAT!!
The reason I half-baked my dough is otherwise I have a problem with my toppings burning while the center of my dough remains doughy. Not sure what I’m doing wrong, but the half-baking things seems to work for me.
After eating it, I asked ThatGuy what he would change for next time. He replied, “add olives.” (see Pasta Salad) YUCK!
