Homemade Taco Pizza

Happy Veteran's Day! I was originally planning on making something red, white and blue but that fell through. Red tomatoes, white crust and a blue plate close enough, though? I was going to write a long intro for this recipe but I think it can all be summed up in two words: Taco pizza. Enough said.


Ingredients:
  • 1 pizza crust - click here for my homemade recipe
  • 1/2 c tomato sauce
  • 1/4 lb beef seasoned with taco seasoning, recipe follows
  • 1/2 c Iceburg lettuce, chopped
  • 1 c shredded cheddar jack cheese
  • 1 tomato, chopped
  • Sour cream, to taste (optional)
Directions:
  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees, or according to your pizza crust recipe directions.
  • Spread the tomato sauce over top of your crust (I omit this step and we dip our pizza slices in the sauce).
  • Sprinkle beef evenly over all.
  • Place the lettuce on top of the beef.
  • Top with cheese.
  • Scatter tomatoes over all.
  • Optional: Dollop with sour cream.
  • Bake for 10 to 15 minutes, or per your pizza crust recipe directions.
  • Enjoy!
