Taco Pizza with Salsa

As prepared by Gimme Some Oven,

The best of both worlds – tacos and pizza!  What could be better?!?


I’m pretty sure that I could live on tacos.  Or pizza.  Or egg drop soup.

(Ok ok, no soup in this recipe.)

But when you combine tacos AND pizza, I’m definitely a happy camper!  Especially when the pizza is loaded up with all sorts of delicious salsa, seasoned meat and my kind of “greens.”  And, this recipe uses a fabulous whole grain pizza crust that brings it all together in minutes.

If you’re not a hamburger person, feel free to substitute chicken or sausage instead.  Or you can easily go vegetarian!

However you make it, I think you’ll love this simple Taco Pizza.

Everything begins with this whole grain goodness.

Pillsbury Artisan Pizza Crust

So easy!  Just lay the pizza crust out on a greased cooking sheet and pre-bake according to package instructions.

While the pizza crust is baking, cook up some hamburger meat with a little chili powder, salt and pepper.  Then layer some salsa and the browned hamburger on top of the pre-baked crust.

Add some shredded “queso.”  (We are cooking a Mexican pizza here, people!)  Then bake for the remainder of the time.



Oh my heavens.  Melted cheese pizza goodness.

Then layer on some “greens” – chopped lettuce, avocado, green onions and fresh cilantro.  Pretty!

Then drizzle with some sour cream if you’d like.  (I just spooned some into a thick Ziplock bag, and snipped off the corner and drizzled away!)  And then voila!  A delicious taco pizza is ready to go in minutes.

Enjoy!!!
