The secret weapon to making this recipe so easy, quick and guaranteed to taste great is McCormick Taco with Chipotle & Garlic Skillet Sauce. No need to simmer in order to get the taco filling to the right consistency. Just pour a packet of the Skillet Sauce into the browned meat (drained if necessary), mix and it is ready to spread on the pizza dough.
The Taco Pizza is delicious just as is, but adding typical taco toppings like sour cream, chives, diced tomato, even shredded lettuce make it even more of a fun treat.
Easy Taco Pizza recipe
- 1 pound lean ground meat I used ground turkey, but lean ground beef would be fine.
- 1 pound fresh pizza dough*
- splash of oil
- generous sprinkle of corn meal
- 1 pouch McCormick Taco with Chipotle & Garlic Skillet Sauce
- 8 oz package shredded sharp cheddar
- **optional** diced tomato and/or sliced pickled jalapeno
Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
Brown the ground meat. If you get any grease in the pan drain it thoroughly. Add the McCormick Taco with Chipotle & Garlic Skillet Sauce. Mix in and take pan off the burner.
While browning the meat, drizzle a small amount of oil on baking sheet or pizza pan. Spread evenly, then sprinkle lightly with corn meal. Stretch the dough, and set in pan.
Spread the taco mixture evenly over the stretched dough, then top with cheese. Add diced tomato or jalapeno if you choose.
Bake for 17-19 minutes. Until crust is crisp and cheese is fully melted.
Cut and serve with additional topping on the side if you like.
*fresh dough is available at most grocers and bakeries
