Easy to use Crescent dough forms the base of this kid approved Taco Pizza for a fast weeknight meal!
Similar to my Cheesy Taco Pasta recipe I posted, this Taco Pizza has some Mexican flavors, but combined with some kid friendly components. My kids Love pizza, probably the consensus of most kids. I mean I can’t blame them… It’s doughy, cheesy, and you can eat it with your hands. So to change up our Taco night, I decided to make a pizza version using the same ingredients I typically use in crunchy tacos.
I’ve seen a few Taco Pizza’s that use a cream cheese or sour cream base, but I decided to use re-fried beans as the base, and omit the cheese on my portion so I could enjoy it too. I always keep a tube of crescent dough in the fridge. It’s so versatile for quick snacks, breakfast, or easy dinner recipes like this! The Taco Pizza looks so pretty once it’s assembled and would be great for a party too. I added some extra hot sauce and pickled jalapenos on mine 😉My son loved this Taco Pizza and said it was better than a fast food Mexican Pizza that he likes to get when we go on road trips. Not sure how much of a compliment that is, but I’ll take it! My picky daughter also ate it, but minus the lettuce and extra avocado. And the hubby, well he loved it too! I know this isn’t the healthiest dish, so if you are looking for a more balanced meal, then I would suggest serving this pizza with a side of cumbers, or mixed greens dressed with some lemon juice, olive oil, salt & pepper (My go to salad dressing). You can also load up on the shredded lettuce, tomato, and avocado to make it more filling and nutritious. However you decide to serve this Taco pizza, I’m sure it’s going to be a family favorite!
