You guys know just how much we love simple recipes and today’s easy taco pizza is one you can have on the table in under 30 minutes!  Now who doesn’t like that?  Friday nights are usually pizza nights at our place.  It’s the end of the week and I don’t want to fuss too much in the kitchen but at the same time I want to have something with lots of flavor and this pizza fits the bill!  Just look at it and see all the yummy ingredients.  While I’m normally a “cook from scratch” person, this pizza gets a head start with pre-made dough – it’s what makes this recipe easy peasy.  The “stars” of the show are the ingredients that you pile on to your liking.

Classic cheese pizza is usually our go-to, but we like to change things up which is why this Taco Pizza is perfect! My kids are well acquainted with tacos and the ingredients that go with it, so combining the two was well received by the fam, and was similar to our Fry Bread (aka Navajo Tacos) that we know and love so much.

How to Make Taco Pizza

Although we loved the combination of ingredients we used for our pizza, this recipe is so easy to change up based on the ingredients your family loves most. We used some of the classics like:

  • ground beef (with taco seasoning)
  • refried beans
  • salsa
  • cheddar cheese
  • tomatoes
  • lettuce
  • olives
  • cilantro

Other great ingredients can include:

  • tortilla chips
  • other meats (like chicken, steak or pork)
  • sour cream
  • jalapenos

Once you know the toppings you want, making the rest of the pizza is easy peasy. We used store-bought pizza dough to make things even easier and then did the following to make this delicious homemade taco pizza…

  1. Cook beef in a sauce pan over medium heat until no longer pink. Drain and then stir in taco seasoning and water. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer, uncovered, for 10 minutes. Set aside.
  2. Place crusts on ungreased pizza pans or baking sheets. Combine beans and salsa; spread over crusts. Top with beef mixture, chips and cheese.
  3. Bake at 350° for 13-16 minutes or until cheese is melted. Sprinkle with tomatoes, lettuce, olives and cilantro.
