It’s a pizza dinner that totally mixes it up from the usual pepperoni and sausage. Plus, it has plenty of flavor with two types of Pace® Salsa that I picked up at Walmart. It’s super quick and easy to make!

There are so many different ways to make taco pizza, but I wanted mine to be regular pizza dough topped with taco ingredients (and refried beans – do you put refried beans IN your taco? I don’t, but I thought it made a good “sauce” when coupled with salsa.) I used store bought dough (the kind that comes in a can) and I baked it twice – once as just the dough with added olive oil and taco seasoning on the outer crust, and then I add my toppings and bake it again. This ensures that the crust fully bakes and gets crispy, not soggy.
Here’s the recipe, you’ll need a few ingredients:
- pizza crust of your choice
- 2 Tbsp olive oil
- 1-2 tsp taco seasoning mix (depending on your level of kick)
- 1 can refried beans
- ⅔ cup Pace® Salsa
- 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
- ¾ lb. ground beef, browned
- 1 cup shredded lettuce
- 3 tomatoes, diced
- ⅓ cup sour cream
- ⅓ cup Pace® Salsa Verde
- sprinkle of diced cilantro
- Start by prepping your dough. I used store-bought, canned pizza dough, so I rolled it out and added olive oil and taco seasoning to the outer crust, then baked it for 8 minutes to get it crispy.
- Brown your ground beef, drain excess fat if needed, and set aide.
- Heat your refried beans, then spread them on top of the crust.
- Add Pace® Salsa on top of the refried beans.
- Top with cheddar cheese and ground beef, then bake for 3-4 minutes at 400 F to melt the cheese.
- Remove the pizza from the oven and allow to slightly cool before adding the lettuce, diced tomatoes, and a drizzle of sour cream and Pace® Salsa Verde on top.
- Top with a garnish of cilantro and a bit more shredded cheddar cheese for color.
I made my Taco Pizza with a “sauce” of refried beans and 24 oz. Pace® Salsa topped with a layer of cheddar cheese and then ground beef. I baked the pizza a second time to melt the cheese, then added lettuce, tomato, sour cream, and 24 oz. Pace® Salsa Verde on top along with a bit of cilantro and some extra cheddar cheese for color.
This taco pizza had so much flavor thanks to the two types of Pace® Salsa! Pace® helps “ban the bland” and can be used for so much more than just chips and dips!
