I’m a book-reading, craft-making newlywed living outside Chicago. I love my husband, cooking dinner and especially eating desserts! We love to ride bikes all over town and read books at coffee shops. I also enjoy shopping at JoAnns, drinking wine on the patio and playing with my bunny rabbit Penelope. Thanks for stopping by and visiting my blog. Please leave a comment- they really make my day! :)

Taco Pizza

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.

Taco Pizza

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!
