Taco Puff Pastry Pizza.
This taco puff pastry pizza is such a great weeknight meal! Flaky crust topped with taco meat, cheese, beans and all your favorite toppings. It’s super satisfying and everyone loves it.
New weeknight dinner alert!
I don’t mind.
When I was a kid I weirdly liked the taco pizza in the school cafeteria. Thinking back to it now, of course, I can’t even fathom it because today I can make it so much better. Like, so much! So, so much.
It’s no secret I’m obsessed with all things puff pastry. Have been forever. There are five (maybe six?!) recipes for puff pastry pizzas/snacks in Everyday Dinners. It’s one of my go-tos for a quick and easy dinner or appetizer or snack.
This fun taco spin is perfect for a weeknight meal, for a game day snack or even a little lunch if you have the time. The best part is that you get to make the rules and use all the ingredients you love. Make it your own!
Here’s the deal!
Grab a sheet of puff pastry – make sure it’s thawed if yours is frozen. For the record, my favorite brand is the wewalka puff pastry! It’s refrigerated and fantastic.
Add on a layer of refried beans. Then a layer of cheese! Then a layer of taco meat. I season mine myself, which is why the ingredient list is rather long. We LOVE this seasoning mix. You can use it or even a packaged one if you are looking for a shortcut!
If you’re feeling it, you could use chicken too. Use shredded rotisserie chicken for ease! I tend to use ground turkey most of the time. Or leave the meat off entirely and do a layer of black beans!
Also, P.S.: even though you may be tempted to add more taco meat, I suggest not doing so. If you make the toppings too heavy, the pastry doesn’t cook through and the whole thing loses its light and fluffiness. You know?
Then I add a drizzle of taco sauce or salsa. I have a deeeelish taco sauce recipe in Everyday Dinners! It’s like, copycat taco bell. Excellent.
So once that is all layered up and ready to go, bake it until flaky and fluffy and cheesy and melty. (more…)
