My Taco Pizza recipe is one that you will want to put in your regular dinner rotation! It’s easy (made in about 30 minutes), it’s filling, and best of all, it’s mouthwateringly delicious. Some might even say addicting. Can you stop at just one slice of Taco Pizza? Trust me, you’ll want 2 slices! The soft crescent pizza crust is topped with meat and cheese then covered with a sour cream drizzle. Oh, and I can’t forget the pizza sauce! The special cheese sauce in my Taco Pizza makes it OVER THE TOP!

Taco Pizza

One person said, “I love love love this pizza! We had no leftovers.” The great thing about this recipe is you can cut it into large squares and serve it as a main dish. Or, you can cut it into smaller squares and serve it as an appetizer. You know what would be so good on the side? Some beans with chips and guacamole. So many ways to make this a snack or a full meal.

While the crescent dough is baking, simply whip up your ground beef while the special cheese sauce is melting. When you’re making the cheese sauce, it just takes a light simmer to gently melt the cheese so that it is spreadable. There is just something about comfort food that everyone loves anytime of year. We made our “pizza cheese sauce” with a spicy taco seasoning, but you could use a mild taco seasoning if you’re cooking for kids or people who don’t like things too spicy. Just a little flavor is all it takes! Did you know that this Taco Pizza was inspired by our extremely popular recipe??

This recipe uses crescent sheets. It’s the same dough as the crescent rolls, so if you can’t find the sheets, you can use the rolls too. But, the sheet is so easy for rolling out into an 8×8 baking dish. The sides bubble up to be slightly thicker, making the perfect pizza crust.

How to Make a Taco Pizza

The baked crescent dough is soft, buttery, fluffy, and addicting. While tostada shells and taco shells are traditionally used for Taco Tuesday, this Taco Pizza is also a perfect Taco Tuesday dinner idea. What I love about this pizza, is that it’s incredibly easy to make. With a few shortcuts, you can have this on your dinner table in no time at all!

See how the crescent sheet puffs up into a great square pizza crust? It slides right out of the baking dish in a snap. While keeping  the oven on, you then place it on a pizza sheet for the next quick and easy steps. Remember, if you have specific pizza topping favorites, get creative and add them!

With a spatula, spread on the taco flavored cheese sauce over the pizza crust. Then, top with the hot ground beef you cooked while the crust was baking. Next, you drizzle a sour cream secret sauce all over the top of the meat. This sour cream drizzle, combined with the cheese pizza sauce and the crescent crust is what makes my taco pizza extremely delicious!

Taco Pizza Toppings

Before popping it back into the oven, add cheese on top. Place the pizza (which is now on a baking sheet) back into the oven for a few more minutes until the cheese is melted. While the cheese is melting, cut up some tomatoes. I use cherry tomatoes cut into 4 pieces each, but you really can use whatever kinds of tomatoes you like.

Once the cheese is melted, pull it out of the oven and top it with shredded lettuce and tomatoes. What I love about serving a taco pizza made with crescent roll crusts is that it cuts into squares with a pizza cutter SO EASILY! The pizza holds its shape because the crust was cooked beforehand. You can eat it by hand or you can eat it with a fork.

If you’re feeding a family of 4, you might want to add some sides, like maybe beans and rice or a salad. If you’re feeding more than 4 people, consider making 2 taco pizzas because it disappears quickly! I cut one 8×8 inch pizza into 4 squares. This Taco Pizza is loaded with beef, cheese, and all your favorite taco toppings! It has become my family’s favorite and I know it will be yours too!
