Here’s a fun twist on tacos!  Roll your taco meat up in pizza dough and bake them until brown.  Top with sour cream, salsa, guacamole, cilantro.   These would be great appetizers for a party, but we had them with some fruit for a simple dinner.


Taco Rolls

serves 4-5


1 pound lean ground beef

1 package taco seasoning

3/4 water (more or less according to taco seasoning instructions)

8 ounces shredded cheese

toppings: guacamole, salsa, lime, sour cream, cilantro


Preheat oven to 400°F and spray a sheet pan with nonstick spray. 


In a medium skillet, brown ground beef.  Add taco seasoning and water and cook for 2-3 minutes. Set aside.


Take pizza dough out of its package and unroll it onto a flat surface. Slightly roll or press the pizza dough out into a rectangle.


Add the taco meat evenly on top of the pizza dough. Sprinkle the cheese evenly on top.


Starting with the long edge of the pizza dough, roll dough tightly up into a long roll. Using a serrated knife, make about 1-inch slices along the roll, making about 18 rolls.


Place rolls on a sheet pan and bake for 10-12 minutes or until tops are golden brown. Serve immediately and top with your favorite taco toppings.
