Tasty Taco Pizza
On the Napoleon Pizza Stone
by Andrea Alden
Spread the bean-salsa mix
- 1 recipe for quick pizza dough
- corn meal for sprinkling
- 1 lb. ground beef
- 2 tbsp. taco seasoning
- ¼ cup salsa, divided
- ¼ cup of refried beans
- 1 cup of shredded jack cheese
- 2 cups shredded lettuce
- 2 to 3 tbsp. sour cream
- ½ of a tomato, diced
Make the pizza dough ahead of time so that you’re ready for making the pizza.
Brown the ground beef with the taco seasoning and two tablespoons of the salsa. While the meat is browning, combine the remaining salsa with the refried beans.
Dust your Napoleon Pizza Spatula
with a little corn meal to make transferring the dough easier. Dust the Napoleon Pizza Stone with a little more cornmeal and slide the raw dough onto the stone. Bake for 10 minutes.
Remove the pizza dough from the grill and flip it over. Spread the salsa and refried beans mix on the dough, then top with the browned ground beef and ¾ of the cheese. Return the pizza to the stone and grill for another 10 to 15 minutes, or until the cheese is bubbly and melted.
While the pizza is cooking, mix the cheese, shredded lettuce, tomato and sour cream so that everything is coated.
Remove the pizza from the grill and top with the sour cream mixture. Slice and serve immediately.
Slice for serving
This Tasty Taco Pizza turned out a bit spicy, but the sour cream and lettuce topping was the perfect juxtaposition. This meal was so good that we actually ate less just so we could take it for lunch the next day. It was also, so good that we made it again a few days later. Will you be trying this for Cinco De Mayo? Don’t forget to have some Garth Brooks playing in the background. Happy Grilling!
