Things You’ll Need

  • Pizza crust dough (homemade or store-bought)

  • Olive oil

  • 1 pound ground beef, turkey or chicken

  • 1 1.25-ounce packet taco seasoning (2 to 3 tablespoons)

  • 1/4 cup broth or water

  • 1 cup refried beans

  • 1 cup shredded or grated cheddar cheese

  • 1/2 medium tomato, deseeded and diced

  • 1/2 cup lettuce, shredded


If you're pressed for time, use a pre-made pizza crust. Also, depending on the size of your crust, you might need slightly more or less toppings.

Ingredients for taco pizza

Step 1

Preheat the oven to 450° Fahrenheit. Roll out the pizza crust dough on a greased baking sheet or pizza pan, brush with olive oil and pre-bake for 6 to 8 minutes. If using store-bought pizza dough, pre-bake according to the package's instructions.

Step 2

In a large pan over medium heat, warm 1 to 2 tablespoons olive oil. Cook the ground meat until brown, about 5 to 7 minutes. Use a spatula to break it up.

Step 6

Top with tomato and lettuce. You can also add other tasty toppings like sliced olives, crushed tortilla chips and chopped cilantro. The possibilities are endless!


If you plan to save leftovers, don't top the entire pizza with tomato and lettuce just yet. Once reheated in the microwave or oven, you can add these toppings just before eating.

Serve with sour cream or hot sauce, if you'd like. Enjoy!
