Taco Pizza


Taco Pizza


  • ½ lb. ground beef
  • ½ cup chopped onion
  • 1 clove garlic
  • ⅓ cup water
  • ½ 1 oz. packet taco seasoning mix
  • 14.5 oz. can diced tomatoes with garlic and onion
  • 2 cups salsa, or more to taste, divided
  • 2 Tbsp. chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1 cup refried beans
  • 12-inch prepared pizza crust
  • 2 cups Mexican-style shredded four-cheese blend, divided
  • 2 cups shredded lettuce
  • 2 tomatoes, chopped
  • 1 can sliced black olives, drained
  • ¼ cup chopped green onion
  • 1 cup sour cream


  1. Cook and stir ground beef, onion and garlic in a large skillet over medium-high heat until beef is completely browned; drain fat from the skillet.
  2. Stir water and taco seasoning mix into beef mixture and then bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to medium-low and simmer, stirring occasionally, for 5 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, preheat oven to 350 F. Place pizza crust onto a baking sheet.
  4. Blend diced tomatoes, 1 cup salsa and cilantro in a blender until smooth.
  5. Spread refried beans in an even layer on the prepared pizza crust, leaving a border of about 1/2-inch uncovered around the outside. Spread 1 cup diced tomato mixture over beans in an even layer; reserve the remaining sauce. Scatter ground beef mixture over sauce and then cover with 1 1/2 cups cheese.
  6. Bake in the preheated oven until cheese is bubbly and crust edges are golden brown, 15 to 20 minutes.
  7. Remove from the oven and let cool for 5 minutes.
  8. Top pizza with shredded lettuce, chopped tomatoes, black olives, green onions and remaining cheese.
  9. Serve with the reserved sauce, sour cream and remaining salsa.
