Taco Pizza - Create a Pizza

 Does your family have a few specific meals that you only make when a certain someone isn't going to be home? For example, we make Taco Pizza on nights when Dad isn't going to be home for dinner. He doesn't like it when we mix the beans and the meat (and I LOVE it!), So we make taco pizza when he isn't going to make it home for dinner.


1 can refried beans
1 packet taco seasoning
1 1/2 C browned ground beef, drained well
cheddar cheese, shredded
taco chips
3/4 C salsa
1 prepared pizza crust (preferably deep dish)

Your favorite Taco Toppings


First, brown your ground beef - if you need to drain the fat from it. 

In the same skillet or saucepan, combine ground beef, taco seasoning, refried beans, and salsa. 

Stir until heated through. 

Spread into pizza crust. Top with crunched taco chips. 

Top with a good bit of cheddar cheese. 

While your pizza is in the oven, chop your taco toppings. We had lettuce, tomatoes and green onions. Sour cream too, but we didn't need to "chop" that. 

 Bake at 350 until cheese is melted and crust is browned. Remove from oven

Top with favorite taco toppings!
