Home Appetizer Taco Pizza

Taco Pizza

by Laura

Today’s taco pizza recipe is one that I made for the Super Bowl.  I got my inspiration from a recipe I saw at Jolene’s Culinary Adventures.  The great thing about this recipe is you can cut it into large squares and serve it as a main dish. Or  you can cut it into smaller squares and serve it as an appetizer.

The original recipe gets topped with tomatoes, olives, and and green onion and the placed back in the oven to melt with the cheese. I like to just add the cheese and bake it. Then I top it with the tomatoes, olives, and green onion and drizzle with sour cream. I love the contrast of the the hot pizza with the cold fresh toppings. However, either way you make it is awesome.

This is yummy and easy to put together.  You can’t loose with pizza at my house.  I also created a completely cold version of this that I will share tomorrow.

Taco Pizza


    Ingredients

    Scale
    • 1 lb.ground beef
    • 1 envelope taco seasoning mix
    • 2 (8 oz) tubes Pillsbury crescent rolls
    • 1 (16 oz) can refried beans (I used the jalapeño kind)
    • 23 cups shredded cheddar cheese or Mexican blend
    • 1/2 cup chopped tomatoes
    • 1/4 cup sliced black olives
    • 4 green onions, chopped
    • Optional topping, sour cream

    Instructions

    1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
    2. In a skillet, brown ground beef and drain. Add taco seasoning to the ground beef according to the package directions.
    3. Unroll crescent rolls into rectangles. Place in ungreased 11 1/2 inch x 16 1/2 inch jelly roll pan or cookie sheet. Press dough over the bottom and 1/2 inch up sides to form crust. Bake at 375 oven for 11 to 13 minutes or just until golden brown.
    4. Microwave beans in a microwave safe bowl for 1 minute. Carefully spread beans over warm crust creating a thin layer.
    5. Top with cooked beef mixture, sprinkle with. At this pot you can also add the tomatoes, black olives and green onion or you can wait until after cooking and add the tomatoes, olives and green onion. Either way, return to oven for 3-6 more minutes until cheese is melted. Serve immediately and drizzle with sour cream if desired. Makes 12 main dish servings or 48 appetizers.

    Very good, will definitely make again. I’m thinking next time putting the olives, green onions and tomatoes and maybe even a little iceberg lettuce on after it comes out of the oven and cools just a bit. A dollop of sour cream on top will definitely be used the next time I make.

    Was wondering how many refrigerated pizza crust cans did you [she] use?
    Have tried with crescents and didn’t like that taste – we love Taco Pizza and get them from our local Pizza Hut [which isn’t on the menu, but they will make if asked].

    Made this tonight for dinner for 3 adults — we are stuffed!
    Followed recipe [left off onions, tho!] and added lettuce, sour cream, and salsa on top after baking.
    Def making again – gonna try another type of crust – probably a refrigerated pizza crust.
    Thanks for giving me an idea of something different for dinner! 🙂

    I found this on Pinterest quite a while back but never commented. I have made it SEVERAL times (at least once a month since finding the recipe, so at least 8 times lol) and we have loved it every single time. My husbands requests it pretty often. It is just the 2 of us, so we have leftovers, but they heat up wonderfully and are also good cold. Hubby takes a slice or 2 to work the next day and never complains 🙂
    I made it a bit differently each time and it was always delicious. Some things I’ve done:
    -used Rotel diced tomatoes & chiles in place of the diced tomatoes for a little extra heat
    -added all sorts of extra toppings, like black beans, diced avocado, diced red onion, extra green onions and sautéed bell peppers
    -served with salsa, sour cream, pico de gallo, and chipotle ranch dressing
    I tried using the Pillsbury refrigerated pizza crust once, but it was too thick for me. Still tasted delicious but too much bread-to-topping. The crescent rolls work perfectly every time!

    The family loved this!I have a kid who hates beans, so I used half a can of fat free refried beans mixed with about 6 oz. lowfat cream cheese and some taco seasoning. He didn’t detect the beans at all and ate a big piece of it! Served it with shredded lettuce, sour cream, and salsa on top. Didn’t even think of the crushed chips but seeing others’ comments about that, I will add those next time.

    And I would also use the lettuce and tomatoes after cooking. And I’ll be using some mozzarella cheese so
    it will taste like real pizza
