Recipe: Taco Pizza

Lately we’ve been trying to cook at home a lot. It doesn’t seem we have the amount of time that we used to, so fancy meals haven’t been an option. We try to make things that are fast, easy and healthy and this is one of our new favorites – especially for weekends. On this one we use ground turkey instead of ground beef, go light on cheese and make our own salsa.

Ingredients
For the pizza:
  • 1 lb  extra lean ground turkey
  • 1 packet taco seasoning (I used McCormick low sodium seasoning)
  • 1 package prepared pizza dough (this time I used Pillsbury, but frozen whole wheat dough works great too)
  • 1 can organic refried black beans
  • 1 can Rotel, drained
  • A handful of shredded Mexican style cheese
Toppings:
  • Romaine lettuce
  • Sour cream 
  • Salsa or pico de gallo
Directions:
1. Prepare crust on a baking sheet and warm oven according to package directions
2. Cook ground turkey and season according to package directions
3. Spread a layer of black beans on the crust
4. Sprinkle Rotel over the black beans, adding as much as you like for kick
5. Spread cooked ground turkey on crust
6. Top with cheese
7. Bake according to package directions of crust; this one was 13 minutes
8. Serve with toppings of your choice
