Here's how to turn this 4 star recipe into a 5 star: 1) Don't cook the tortillas for 8 minutes-probably just 4 or 5. You just want them a little crispy-not burnt. 2) Add 1 pkg of taco seasoning mix to the ground beef, once its cooked. 3) Top with Tex Mex Cheese, chopped tomatoes, green onions, (black olives, if you wish), and a dollop of sour cream. 4) Voila!! You've automatically added an extra star! Enjoy! I made these for "Cinco De Mayo". They were a big hit: Even with my picky 4 year old niece!Read More

These were good, but took some time. (I made a number of changes.) I used picante sauce instead of pizza sauce & added chopped black olives & green chiles to give more flavor. I also added taco seasoning to the ground beef & used refried black beans. I left out the onions & tomatoes but added shredded lettuce. My family loved these & said that they were so much better than Taco Bell (thank goodness!)
I used salsa instead of tomato sauce. I also added taco seasoning to the ground beef. I topped the 'pizza' with chopped onion, chopped tomatoes, and cheese. After baking I sprinkled with chopped scallions instead of cilantro. Also made guacamole and served it with sour cream and rice. Really quite tasty!!
I thought this was very good. I gave 4 stars because I feel it needed a few changes. I used enchilada sauce in place of the pizza sauce. Also, I cooked the ground beef with a packet of taco seasoning, to add flavor. It turned out great!
used 2 packets of taco bell mild sauce instead of pizza sauce, it was sooo good also topped with sliced olives and red pepper, very similar to taco bell's, oh and season the meat with taco seasoning. salt and pepper only?? yuck.
Being a vegetarian, I used SOYrizo instead of ground beef. It comes packaged and seasoned like regular chorizo and it was actually quite delicious. i also sprinkled a little bit of cotija on top adding a great flavor and it doesn't melt! it was great!
THIS WAS GREAT! "Better than Taco Bell," said my son! Now, that's a compliment! I used some of the ideas from others, based on what I knew my kids would like. First off, I cooked my ground beef just like I would do for tacos (that includes lots of seasonings and salsa). I did have to heat the tortillas for 8 minutes to get them just right. Instead of pizza sauce, I combined a can of Hatch green chili enchilada sauce and Hatch Tex-Mex enchilada sauce and used that instead. I left off the tomatoes and cilantro. So, I know what you're thinking--it was basically just a taco. I will disagree, though. It is the baked flour tortillas that make this so good! Thanks for a great recipe!
Yum! It was very good. We also used salsa instead of pizza sauce. I did slightly burn the tortillas so make sure you watch them. I don't think you quite need eight minutes.
As written, this is a 4 star recipe at most, but with simple modifications it is easily deserving of 5 stars. I browned the meat (I used ground turkey) as directed, with just a little salt and pepper, but after tasting it, I knew that wasn't going to cut it. After browning, I added a package of taco seasoning. I also used hot taco sauce on top instead of pizza sauce for more Mexican flavor. We really enjoyed these and they were really quick to prepare, will make again. Thank you :)
Fast & easy! Substituted salsa on top instead of pizza sauce, and it was a huge hit with my kids. Nice change from the usual tacos & burritos fare . . . Can be done with just refrieds (instead of beef) for lower fat content.
This makes a great mexican pizza, substitute tomato sauce or salsa for the pizza sauce.
If I make again I would probably substitute green peppers or mushrooms for the tomatoes and leave off the cilantro.
This has always been one of our favorites. I add finely diced jalpenos and a great avacoda sauce on the side Great
another average recipe! I made this as directed and my family was not happy (teenage boys too!) I will go back to my old recipe which is similar and slow cooks in the crock pot.
Good and simple
This is very good! And so fast and easy to make. From over reviews I added taco seasoning to the beef for my falvour. I put cheese in the tortilla sandwich as well. On the top tortilla I just put salsa and cheese! Will keep and make this recipe again!
Pretty good. We enjoyed it!
I followed the review tips (thanks everyone) and used the taco seasoning for the meat which I think made a huge difference. I also put finely chopped onions in the meat. To make it a little lighter I used fat-free refried beans, wheat tortillas and I topped it with olives and light sour cream. My teenage daughter's favorite thing is Taco Bell's mexican pizza. She thought even the lighter version was better! I will be making this again. Definitely follow the review tips on this recipe, that's why it only got 4 stars for me.
This is a great alternative to regular tacos. We did chicken because we prefer it to beef and I topped it off with sauce. I think we'll do this once in a while instead of tacos to switch things up!
such a unique and delicious dinner! I've made this twice now. I follow the directions exactly and it comes out great. It's not quick to make, but well worth the effort. Even my kids gobbled it up!
Super delicious! We add pico de gallo & olives to the tops of ours and use red Enchilada sauce like other reviewers suggested.
These were ok for a quick meal, but we definitely weren't impressed. Not sure if I'll ever make them again, but if I do, I'll probably change the recipe up a bit and make it more to our tastes.
I thought this was wonderful. Very similar to Taco Bell (I refuse to eat fast food anymore, so I missed this!) I did make the changes that most people suggest: I used taco seasoning and salsa instead of pizza sauce.
It was better than I thought it would be. I used taco seasoning and onion powerder to the meat after it was browned.
I added taco seasoning to the meat and used enchilda sauce rather than pizza sauce. Everyone wanted seconds.
I let my kids cook one day a week and this is perfect for little hands to start with! super easy and yummy!
Very good, very easy to make
Good, everyone liked. Learned from my mistakes though, you don't need to cook the tortillas until they are hard.
Not totally to my tastes as written, plain ground beef with only salt and pepper as seasoning is pretty unappetizing, I used a packet of taco seasoning on mine. And pizza sauce hits a wrong note too, salsa or enchilada sauce is a much better option. Top with a dab of sour cream!
As other reviewers suggested, I added taco seasoning to the beef, and used salsa instead of pizza sauce. My kid, who seems to get pickier every day, gobbled it up... so that's good enough for me! This one's going into regular rotation.
i substituted green onions for cilantro and it turned out great
This was so easy & delicious. Thank you.
5.9.18 I did add some taco seasoning to the ground beef and just couldn’t see pizza sauce on this, so I sub’d picante sauce. Also, I baked the tortillas only 5 minutes, concerned about them turning out like a tortilla chip if cooked for 8 minutes and then back into the oven for the cheese to melt later. This takes no time at all to prepare, and was pretty darn good for a weeknight dinner.
Followed this almost exactly, except for using canned diced tomatoes on top, 1 can of refried beans and 1 cup of homemade black beans mixed together and no cilantro, since that is a personal preference. Made a double recipe, and it was plenty for 8 adults. Baked 20 tortillas on the shelves in my oven for 25 minutes at 350 degrees to get them really crispy- worked so well! Was a hit for my daughter's birthday meal. Disclaimer: her favorite restaurant is Taco Bell, so this was a mimic of their Mexican pizza. Was okay, but top tortilla did not "stick" to bottom, so some people flipped the top upside down to make a Mexican pizza tortilla sandwich.
Only changes were to season the beef with taco seasoning and used enchilada sauce in place of pizza sauce.
My fam really loved this. I used chicken instead of beef and didn`t have any beans. I made a pizza sauce from this site and we all loved it!
