Taco Pizza

Our local Godfather's Pizza makes a great taco pizza that is my son's favorite when we splurge and go eat out there. I've decided we can probably make the exact same thing at home for much less cost. Here is my version.


For the crust:
1 tbsp active dry yeast
1 cup warm water (105 to 115 degress F)
1 tsp sugar
1 tsp salt
2 tbsp vegetable oil
2 1/2 cups flour

1 small can enchilada or taco sauce
1 lb lean ground beef
2 T homemade taco seasoning
1/2 cup diced onion
2 oz shredded mozzarella cheese
2 oz shredded cheddar cheese (I use reduced fat cheeses)
shredded iceberg lettuce
1 tomato, diced
1 oz shredded cheddar cheese

Brown ground beef in a large skillet. Drain. Add onion and spices and cook until onion is softened. Set aside. 

To make the crust, dissolve the yeast in the water. Add the rest of the ingredients in and mix. Dump onto a floured surface. Knead into a smooth dough (five minutes or so). Roll out and press down onto a greased pizza pan.

Spread the enchilada sauce over the crust. Top with the ground beef/onion mixture. Top with the 2 oz of cheddar and 2 oz of mozzarella. Bake at 450 degress F for around 12-15 minutes until the crust looks crispy and lightly browned.Remove from oven.

Top the pizza with the shredded lettuce, diced tomato, and remaining 1 oz of cheddar.

We make a super similar pizza and add a little sour cream on top with the lettuce and tomato! Yummy treat and thanks for sharing your version!
