Birthday Taco Pizza

So last week we celebrated Dixmas, the birthday celebration of everything Dixon.

Like every birthday celebration, the celebrant gets to choose what cake and what meal.
Dixon chose chocolate cake with chocolate frosting and candy hearts I had in the cabinet. I put it on a pedestal and I think it turned out really nice looking.

For his meal he wanted something he has in school from time to time, something he calls, "Taco Pizza". I asked them how they make it. "Just like a regular pizza mom, but with taco meat and crushed tortilla chips.

On the night I was making it, I asked him what type of red sauce, "I don't know". So I put on my mom thinking cap and this is what I came up with. It wasn't half bad and judging from the fact that there was no more left, I think the guys agreed.

Taco Pizza  

  • Pizza crust rolled out and put on a cornmeal or bread-crumbed pizza pan or cookie sheet.
  • Enchilada sauce- a small can will do.
  • Mozzarella
Roll out the pizza dough and bake in a preheated 400 degree oven for about 12 minutes.


1/2 lb of ground beef, turkey or chicken browned and seasoned with 1/2 package of taco seasoning with 1/2 the water

Spinach, tomatoes and taco cheese

Crushed tortilla shells (I used Tostitos)

Top your pizza with the above toppings. I used spinach because I figured it would hold up in the oven better. If you want to make a raw pizza,  you could bake it off with the cheese and put on the tomatoes and spinach at the back end.

Anyway, lower your oven temperature to 350 degrees and pop the pizza back in for about
ten minutes more. When you pull it out it will be like nachos and pizza had a baby. Yummy! I can see why the kid loves this dish. Not the most figure friendly but after a long week, definitely comforting!


  1. I'm originally from Iowa and our pizza hut had taco pizza. Love it! They used refried beans as the "sauce." But yours looks really good too!
