The Busy Mom's Dinner Photo Blog - Taco Pizza!!

Saturday, December 01, 2012

Originally found this recipe on pinterest and it looks like someone was kind enough to put it in the recipe calculator on SparkRecipes!!

2 slices taco pizza - 460
1 apple - 80
Total Calories - 540

I do this a little differently. Use pillsbury pizza dough instead of crescent rolls. I only used 1/2 can of beans and 1 1/2 cups cheese. Also fresh tomatoes instead of Rotel. There was a time, that I would have felt compelled to recalculate the whole recipe, but I've learned, "don't let the perfect be the enemy of the good."

Also, I didn't do a great job of cutting it into 12 equal slices. There were several that were a lot bigger than these. So if you think that it looks like a small serving for the calories, your probably right. Next time I will probably just cut into 8 pieces and only have one.

What about kid friendly?
It's taco and pizza combined. If your kid doesn't eat it, give him/her away! One of my girls does pick off the tomatoes and olives, but I consider it a success.

What about easy?
Super easy. I blogged a couple days ago about the ground beef that I browned, rinsed and froze. I took a bag of it out of the freezer and heated it up in the microwave. Stirred in a tablespoon of taco mix (I use Chef Meg's version) and it was ready to go! I'm pretty sure this was on the table in something around 20 minutes.

Awesome ground beef tips! Blog entry
