Taco Pizza

Taco Pizza

When you have a large family good recipes are in abundance, and our family is no exception. This recipe for Taco pizza was created by my daughter-in-laws sister Melissa, and trust me Melissa knows how to feed a crowd.

At every family event she is always cooking something special, so I’ll need to spend some time with her to see if I can’t convince her to keep them coming.

And if you’re looking for a meatless night for your dinner just leave out the meat.

Here is what Melissa says you need:

1 - 8oz Package sour cream
2-3 cups - Cheddar Cheese
4 cups - Shredded Lettuce
1-2 - Medium Size Tomatoes - Chopped
1-lb - Ground Beef, Sliced Chicken, Ground Turkey - pick one or none!
1 - Package Taco Seasoning
16oz - Can Refried Beans
2 - Bags Tortilla Chips and/or Scoops of your choice

Here is how she prepares it:

  • Pre-heat your oven to 350 degrees...
  • LAYER 1 - Spread Refried Beans on a cookie baking sheet - round pizza pan size or 9x12 cookie sheet - your choice!  Bake for 10-12 min on 350 degrees. Beans will bubble when they're done.
  • While Refried Beans are baking, brown meat of your choice.  Once meat is done, Add Taco Seasoning package with water as directed on package.
  • Let Refried beans cool for a few minutes 3-5min, while cooling....Chop tomatoes and prepare cheese and lettuce.
  • LAYER 2 - Spread Sour Cream on cooled Refried Beans.
  • LAYER 3 - Shake 1 cup Cheddar Cheese all over dish.
  • LAYER 4 - Add chopped Lettuce all over dish.
  • LAYER 5 - Add chopped Tomatoes all over dish.
  • LAYER 6 - Sprinkle remaining Cheddar Cheese all over dish.
  • Serve now or Heat 3-5 min in oven to melt cheese.
  • Serve immediately - Can be a main course dish, or appetizer - you decide!

* This will serve 6-8 people.

As always Thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoy


  1. This is something I have to try. I just love refried beans and cheese.

    1. Thanks David, I know what you mean, I most of the time eat too much when we make it. Thanks for the visit.

  2. I have not eaten taco pizza, yet. Thanks for sharing the recipe Sam. I have to try this.

    1. Hi Thelma, I'm sure you're going to like it, thanks for visiting and have a great day:)

  3. Haven't ever thought of combining these two foods or flavors. It would be easy to make half with meat & half without it. How does the lettuce come out - crisp?

    1. Hi Fay, The lettuce remains crisp as long as the Refried beans are cooled. Thanks a bunch for stopping by :)

  4. My kids would love this pizza! Tacos are a big favourite in our house, and they love taco salad too. We'll have to try this!

  5. Glad you liked this one Kyla, I hope you guys enjoy it. Thanks!
