Easy Dinner Recipe: Delicious Deep Dish Taco Pizza

July 29, 2014

When you have a busy week ahead of you, it's essential that you have a handful of quick and easy meal recipes that you can turn to.  Deep dish taco pizza is one of those.  Premade biscuit dough is pressed into a pie plate to form the crust.  Once the crust has been baked, it's loaded with your favorite taco toppings.  This version uses ground beef but feel free to use ground turkey or tofu crumbles for a vegetarian taco pizza.  I like to add avocado and minced cilantro to mine.
