Southwestern Taco Pizza

Nikkie Vann


My Mom told me I really messed up making this for her because she will never order another taco pizza again! This dish is time consuming to prepare but soooo good. The corn and Catalina give it just a touch of sweet with the savory, the flavors are multi dimensional. I prepared this for New Years Eve as appetizer and have made it for supper several times. Hope you all enjoy this!

How to Make Southwestern Taco Pizza


  1. Brown ground chuck until no pink, drain, add 2 packets of taco seasoning and water called for on the packets. Prepare as directed on packets. Keep warm on low.
  2. *While preparing taco meat above* Spray large jelly roll pan with non-stick spray. Roll out crescents and press into pan, try and seal the seams best you can. Pierce dough every inch or so with a fork. Bake at temp and time on package.
  3. Combine refried beans and remaining packet of taco seasoning (no water)
  4. Assemble right before serving: On baked crescents, spread seasoned refried beans, top with hot taco meat, top with shredded cheese. Stop here if traveling with this dish (toppings to be added by individuals or added at event) or if everyones tastes are different. If not continue to top in this order lettuce, tomato, corn, black olives, green onions and tortilla chips. Drizzle with Catalina, then with Ranch. Cut in desired size pieces. Serve with sour cream. YUMMY
