Big Family Sheet Pan Taco Pizza
Does your family enjoy both tacos and pizza? You may enjoy ordering takeout from time to time but have realized it can quickly get expensive when you have so many mouths to feed. Instead of spending money ordering tacos or pizza from restaurants, save some extra cash and prepare this Big Family Sheet Pan Taco Pizza at home. It will impress your loved ones with its unique taste. You can make it with ease using refrigerated pizza dough (or make your own pizza dough using my recipe), along with several important ingredients that will contribute to its great taste.
Ingredients You Will Need to Make the Big Family Sheet Pan Taco Pizza
When preparing the Big Family Sheet Pan Taco Pizza, you should have the following ingredients ready to use:
- Ground Beef. Use at least 2.5 pounds of ground beef to have enough for everyone to enjoy on the pizza. Here are more ground beef meals.
- Taco Seasoning. Choose any brand of taco seasoning to use on your ground beef.
- Pizza Dough. You can buy refrigerated pizza dough to use when making this sheet pan pizza, or make your own pizza dough.
- Fiesta Blend Cheese. Instead of using mozzarella cheese like you would with a traditional pizza, use the fiesta blend that will go perfectly with the other ingredients.
Besides these ingredients, you should also have tomatoes, iceberg lettuce, water, black olives, salsa, and pickled jalapenos to use as toppings.
If you want to make this recipe dairy-free, just leave the cheese off of it or replace the cheese with a dairy-free option of your choice. There are lots of dairy-free cheese options available. Most grocery stores have a specialty foods section. You can also shop at a health foods store as they usually offer these types of choices as well.
Extra Ingredients You Can Add to the Sheet Pan Taco Pizza
After preparing the Big Family Sheet Pan Taco Pizza, you may want to add a few extra ingredients to it, such as sour cream, sliced avocados, or prepared guacamole. Other ingredients that will taste good on the pizza include chorizo, bacon crumbles, and crumbled corn chips for an extra crunch.
Do I Have to Use Ground Beef?
If you do not like ground beef or prefer a leaner option, you can use ground turkey or ground chicken. You would season the ground chicken or turkey the same way that you would season your ground beef before adding it to your dough with the rest of your taco pizza ingredients. You can also use shredded chicken. If you have leftover chicken, season it with the taco seasoning and shred it with a hand mixer in minutes.
How to Store Leftovers
Slice your Big Family Sheet Pan Taco Pizza into squares and serve. When you have leftovers, wrap those pizza squares in aluminum foil and store them in the fridge. You can keep your pizza in the fridge for a maximum of three days. Reheat any slices in the microwave or in a skillet on the stovetop for several minutes to get it crispy again.
