Taco Pizza Night

We are slightly obsessed with pizza here at our house. Okay seriously obsessed with pizza. Tonight's dinner was taco pizza and it was SO good! Bonus points for being super simple to put together. 

The recipe below is for two large pizzas.

Taco Pizza

4c flour
1.5c water
1 Tbsp Yeast
1/2tsp salt

1 lb ground beef
6 Tbsp Taco seasoning, divided (Seasoning mix recipe below)
1 lb dried kidney beans, precooked
4c. cheddar cheese, shredded
4c. Baby spinach
Black olives
Sour cream

Preheat oven to 375 and begin mixing your crust ingredients together. I use my stand mixer and dough hook, add all the ingredients and let the mixer kneed the dough for about 5min. When done let sit for a few minutes to rest. While the dough is resting I line my baking sheets with tinfoil (because I am lazy and don't like washing pans) and coat them lightly with olive oil. 

Divide the dough equally in half and roll out on your prepared baking sheets. Prebake your dough for 10 minutes. While the dough is baking it is time to start on the toppings. I precook my dried beans and store them in the freezer till needed. For this recipe I brought 4 cups of water up to a boil and then dropped my frozen beans in to the water. I boiled them till they were soft and easily smashed with the back of a spoon.  Once softened drain the beans and smash them into a paste and add 3 Tbsp taco seasonings. Meanwhile brown your ground beef and add the remaining 3 Tbsp taco seasonings.

Once the crust is prebaked add a layer of your bean mixture, seasoned beef, cheddar cheese, and olives. Return the pans to the oven for another 5 minutes to melt the cheese.

Once cooked add the chopped spinach and let everyone add their own sour cream, salsa, and extra olives to their servings.

So yummy!

Taco Seasoning Mix

1/4 c Flour
2 Tbsp Chili Powder
1/4c Onion Salt
2 tsp Garlic Powder
4 tsp Paprika
1/2 tsp Cayenne Pepper
2 tsp Sugar
2 tsp Oregano
2 tsp Cumin

Mix well and store in an air tight container. Three tablespoons equals 1 packet of store bought taco or chili seasoning mix.
