You love tacos. But you also love pizza. Can there be too much of a good thing? Cue the taco pizza, the ingenious combo where Italian meets Mexican, taco meets pizza. This fast and easy dinner is equally perfect for Taco Tuesday (still counts) and a weekend pizza night. 

Anything you might fill your taco with is great for a taco pizza. Spread refried beans and salsa are across pizza dough (homemade or store-bought, we’re not judging). Then top with taco-seasoned ground beef, Mexican shredded cheese blend, and sliced black olives. Garnish with shredded lettuce, more salsa, jalapeños, sliced green onions, and a dollop of sour cream to finish. 

Nab Pre-Made Pizza Dough or Make Your Own

You might already have a favorite pizza dough recipe, but in case you need some inspiration, check out this no-knead pizza dough. Rather than make it all in one go, you can make this dough a day in advance. 

In a bit of a rush? Nab pre-made dough at your local supermarket, or pop into your favorite pizzeria and ask if you can buy a couple balls of dough. 

Simple Tip!

You can use two 12-inch pre-baked pizza crusts if you’re pressed for time. Assemble the pizzas as written in Step 4 and bake according to the directions on the package.
