Yummy Taco Pizza

This Taco Pizza recipe is the perfect mash-up for nights when you can’t decide between tacos or pizza! Yep! That’s right. A taco pizza recipe. I’ve been wanting to do a “Taco Tuesday” post since I started, and why haven’t I? Ummm, that’s a great question, I have no idea. I love pizza. I love tacos even more. So when I was introduced to taco pizza by our local take and bake shop I was ecstatic. Boy was it yummy! Sadly though, it only comes around every now and then for a limited time. That’s okay, because I have since discovered that it is super easy to make! So collect your ingredients, grab your kid to help make it extra special, and get ready for a delicious lunch or dinner. I’ve made this taco pizza recipe more than a handful of times and each time I make it, it just gets better and better! Homemade dough is topped with a pizza sauce made up of beans, taco sauce, and pizza sauce, two types of cheese (yes, two!!), ground beef, lettuce, sour cream, more taco sauce, with…wait for it… taco-styled doritos! Yes that’s right, the good people at Frito-Lay created some type of “chip think tank” and out of it was born taco flavored Doritos! I’m not sure how much R&D went into it, but it was worth it. This is one of my favorite pizzas I love tacos and I love pizza. I came up with this recipe when I wanted to make some green sauce enchiladas. I had no corn tortillas so I said what the heck lets do this on a pizza. And it came out great kids loved it except I made theirs with no jalapenos. You can use red or green taco sauce. I did a tomatillo sauce on my pizza.
