Taco Pizza

Finally! A one-pizza night! Normally, I have to make pizzas with two different toppings because my husband doesn't like the same fancy toppings I do. But, one night I was staring into the freezer at midnight, when I should have been in bed, wondering what to make for dinner the following day. Something in me said, "Taco pizza!" and before thinking about what he might say, I blurted it out. Shockingly, my husband said, "Oooo! That sounds amazing!" Score! This pizza was really delicious and I've added some modifications in the directions to make things a little clearer. Ole!

Taco Pizza

1 lb ground beef
1 packet Lawry's taco seasoning
1 heart of romaine lettuce, chopped
1 Roma tomato, chopped
2 cups shredded Mexican cheese blend
1/3 cup sour cream
1 cup of your favorite salsa
1 pizza dough (I used half wheat, half white from Fresh and Easy)
2 T flour
2 T olive oil

Preheat oven to 500 degrees. Brown the hamburger in a pan; add seasoning packet and water as directed on the packet. Sprinkle the flour and drizzle the olive oil on a medium cookie sheet. Stretch out the dough and press it into the cookie sheet; work it enough to get it to go out to the edges of the sheet. Bake in the oven only half way, for about 4 minutes. Remove from oven and pour on the salsa. Top the salsa with the ground beef taco meat.

Sprinkle on the cheese. Bake in oven for no more than 10 more minutes--just enough to finish cooking the pizza dough and melt the cheese.

Put the sour cream in a small sandwich baggie and cut off just a bit of one of the corners. Sprinkle the lettuce and tomato on the melted cheese. Pipe the sour cream on the lettuce and tomato. Cut it into squares and enjoy! You could also top it with guacamole, taco sauce, chopped black olives, red onion, cilantro, or anything else that you like on your tacos!
