We love to order taco pizza from the local pizza parlor but it got too expensive. So I came up with this variation of it that my family loves! It can be suited to match anyone's tastes and the ready-made crust makes it a snap on busy days.

  • Stir the taco seasoning mix and water into the beef mixture; bring to a boil, reduce heat to medium-low, and cook at a simmer, stirring occasionally, for 5 minutes.

  • Preheat an oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

  • Place the prepared pizza curst on a baking sheet.

  • Blend the diced tomatoes with garlic and onion, salsa, and cilantro in a blender until smooth.

  • Spread the refried beans in an even layer on the prepared pizza crust, leaving a border of about 1/2-inch uncovered around the outside.

  • Spread about 1 cup of the diced tomato mixture over the refried beans in an even layer; reserve the remaining sauce.

  • Scatter the ground beef mixture over the layer of sauce.

  • Cover the beef with 1 1/2 cups Mexican-style shredded cheese blend.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until the cheese is bubbly and the edges of the crust are golden brown, 15 to 20 minutes; set aside to cool 5 minutes.

  • Top the pizza with shredded lettuce, chopped tomatoes, black olives, green onions, and 1/2 cup Mexican-style shredded cheese blend. Serve with the reserved sauce, sour cream, and 1 cup salsa.

Cook's Note:

For a crispier crust, bake the pizza directly on the oven rack.
