Treat yourself and your family to the ultimate kid-friendly dinner – TACO PIZZA! This easy recipe takes everything you love about cheesy, beefy tacos and piles it high on top of soft crescent rolls. No matter which way you slice it up, you’re going to love this easy and fun weeknight dinner idea!
Taco Tuesday just got so much more exciting! Next time you’re craving cheesy beans and ground beef, toss aside the tortillas and instead grab some store-bought crescent rolls dough. It serves as the softest, fluffiest, and most delicious base to all of your family’s favorite taco toppings! This is a great way to sneak some protein on to your picky eater’s plate, that’s for sure.
On a crazy busy weeknight, you’ll really appreciate just how easy this Taco Pizza is to whip up. You pretty much just have to cook the ground beef, bake the dough, assemble the taco layers, bake again until all warm and melty, and enjoy! Oh, and you can’t forget the toppings of course. I like to make a little taco bar with stuff like guacamole and salsa, that way everyone can top off their Taco Pizza slices however they’d like.
While Taco Pizza is one of my favorite fun weeknight dinners to make, it’s also perfect for serving at parties and potlucks. I mean really, who doesn’t love cheesy beef with taco toppings on top of perfectly baked crescent rolls? It’s definitely an indulgent meal and the beef and beans are sure to fill you up. You may be craving a second slice but be too full to snag one… Which is the best!
