Biscuit Crust Taco Pizza

Yum
 My kids were having a play date with their cousins and they wanted pizza for lunch.  I looked around my kitchen and fridge for a quick pizza crust when I saw the Pillsbury Grands Biscuits sitting there.   I divided each biscuit into two (they easily pull apart since they are layered) and got to work pressing the biscuits together to form a pizza crust.  Just add pizza topping of choice and cheese... bake and you've got a fun, flaky pizza crust in minutes. I decided to do a Taco pizza and made a quick guacamole to eat it with as well.



Ingredients:
1lb lean ground meat (beef, chicken, pork or turkey)
2 jalapenos seeded and chopped
1 onion chopped
2-3 Tbs store bought Taco seasoning (I used McCormick brand)
1-2 tsp of ground cumin
1 tsp of garlic powder
1 tsp of red chili flakes (or to taste)
Salt and Pepper to taste
1 (15oz) can diced tomatoes
1 tube of 8 grands biscuits
2 cups shredded cheddar or Mexican blend cheese


Directions:
Start by browning meat with a little salt and pepper. Then add onions and jalapeno and finish browning meat.  Next add seasoning: taco seasoning, cumin, garlic powder, red chili flakes. Saute for 1-2 minutes.



Then add one can of diced tomatoes.  Saute for another 3-5 minutes.  Taste for seasoning.








To assemble pizza:
Divide biscuits into half and join together by pressing the edges.  Top with taco topping and cheese. Bake in a 400 degree oven for 20-25 minutes until biscuit is baked and cheese melted.  Enjoy.

  10. Has anyone tried prevailing the crust before adding toppings? Was just curious if it was soggy or cooked all the way they? Looking to try this tonight 👍🏻

    1. Our pizza crust was not soggy and cooked through. Of course you can precook the pizza crust half way before adding the toppings. Hope you enjoy it. :)
