Individiual Taco Pizzas

My kids love pizza.

My kids love tacos.

So we decided to combine the two.

What they DON'T like is the same toppings on their tacos. They only thing they can agree on is meat.

Thus the individual pizzas.

Curt's had fat-free refried beans, taco meat, salsa verde, lettuce and tomatoes.

Luke's had only taco meat and sharp cheddar cheese.

Mine had a little of everything, PLUS jalapenos!

We used 6-inch Mama Mary's pre made pie crusts, but you could make your own or use any brand you find in local stores. Not one of us finished a 6-inch pizza, keep in mind! 

This really isn't a recipe as much as putting fun things together on a pizza crust, which the kids can do themselves.

Taco Pizzas

Serves 4

4 pre-made pizza crusts such as Mama Mary's or Boboli

1 pound lean ground beef

Taco seasoning

1 14.5 ounce can fat-free refried beans, such as Ortega

Grated sharp cheddar cheese


Salsa verde

Jalapenos, sliced

Lettuce, shredded

Tomato, diced

Sour cream

Or anything else you can think of.

Cook ground beef, drain fat. Add 3/4 cup water and taco seasoning. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer.

Preheat oven to 450 (or follow package directions).

Spread fat-free refried beans over crust. Top with meat and cheese and salsas.

Reduce oven heat to 425 and bake until crust is golden and cheese is bubbly.

Remove from oven and top with other ingredients! Serve immediately.
