Since I moved to Texas my love for Mexican food has grown a lot. I also love Italian cuisine so it would only be a matter of time before I would figure out how to combine the two! So, today I’m sharing my newest creation called the Mexican Taco Pizza.

Mexican Taco Pizza

Making the Mexican Taco Pizza:

  • This pizza begins with the sauce and instead of using a traditional tomato sauce, I decided to create a black bean pizza sauce. It’s a quick preparation blending enchilada sauce and refried black beans and it’s really good.
  • Pizza isn’t quite pizza without fresh pizza dough so get your roller prepared to shape your dough into whatever shape you’d prefer. For this pizza, I went with a rectangular shape.
  • The seasonings used will give your ground beef a “Tex-Mex” flavor making it the foundation for this tasty pizza.
  • The pico de gallo and black olives add a nice touch along with the fresh cilantro.
  • And finally, there isn’t a pizza that is great without lots of cheese and using three different types of cheese seriously upgrades this pizza.

Talking two separate cultures and teaming them together is what makes this a masterpiece — and a must-have on pizza nights. When you want a change-up from your typical pizza options, give this Mexican Taco Pizza a spot on your menu and you will thoroughly enjoy it.
