Taco Pizza
Thin Crust Taco Pizza

This is enough to make two thin crust pizzas.  Make the dough first and while it rises prepare all the other stuff.



Dough

1 cups

warm water

4 cups

AP flour

2 tsp
yeast
1 tbl
salt
3 tbl
sugar



Toppings
1 lbs
ground meat
1 packets
taco seasoning
1 cups
store bought picante sauce, spicy or mild your choice
4 cups
cheese, shredded (cheddar or mozzarella)
3 cups shredded lettuce
2 cups Roma tomatoes, diced
1
avocado, diced  (sprinkle some lime juice on the avocado to keep it from turning brown)

lime (for the avocados)

Combine the water and yeast in a mixing bowl, and stir to dissolve the yeast.  Add the flour and salt to the bowl, turn the mixer to speed 2 and mix until you've formed a dough ball.  Let the mixer kneed the dough for 5 minutes. The dough should still feel moist and slightly tacky. If it's sticking to your hands like bubble gum, work in more flour, one tablespoon at a time, until it is smooth.  Put the dough in a greased bowl, cover, and let it rise for an hour in a warm place.

 

Divide the dough into two pieces and using a rolling pin on a floured surface, roll the dough out very thin.  Put the dough on greased 14" pizza pans.

Preheat the oven to 425.  Cook the meat as though you were making tacos.  Let it cool.  Cut the lettuce, tomatoes, and avocado up and place into individual bowls.  Evenly spread the salsa, then meat, then cheese on each pizza.  Bake the pizzas for approximately 8 minutes. When the dough browns pull the pizza out, cut it into pieces, and let each person put their lettuce, tomato, and avocado toppings on as thick or as thin as they like.
