Taco Pizza

Here's a quick and easy dinner. 


  • 1 (.25 ounce) package active dry yeast
  • 1 teaspoon honey/raw sugar
  • 1 cup warm water (110 degrees F/45 degrees C)
  • 1 1/2 cups AP flour
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon salt

Add the water, yeast, & honey/sugar into your mixer bowl. Combine. Add the olive oil. Turn mixer on medium speed. Add the salt to your flour. Gradually add flour/salt mixture to mixer bowl. Combine everything until the dough comes away from the sides of the mixer bowl. Work quickly, and don't be afraid to really turn the mixer up. The whole process should only take about a minute. 

Let the dough rest in the bowl while you prep your other ingredients. 
Ok, now for the Taco Pizza

You'll need:
1 cup Salsa
2 tsp-1 tbsp taco seasoning 
1 can (1 2/3 cups)Black Beans
1/2 cup frozen corn
1 cup Shredded Cheese

Roll out your dough and place it on a pizza pan or large cookie sheet (it's ok to make a rectangular pizza…I won't tell!) dusted with a little cornmeal. 

Spread the dough with some salsa.Dust it with some taco seasoning. Sprinkle on the beans, corn, & cheese. 

Bake at 550 degrees for about 8 minutes. 

Top with sliced green onions, chopped lettuce, and chopped tomatoes. 

Serve with salsa, guacamole, & sour cream.
