All the wonderful flavor of Taco Tuesday without all the mess!

Taco Pizza: An Alternative on Taco Tuesday!

Taco Pizza is an easy and clean alternative to Taco Tuesdayl.

Taco Pizza

Our family loves Taco Tuesday. We do nachos, tacos, enchiladas, taquitos, and taco pizza. Taco Pizza is one of my favorites, simply because it’s easy to make, has less cleanup, and we like them. They’re cheap, too!!

These flat taco shells, tostadas I think, lend themselves perfectly to this kind of meal. They are extra awesome because at my Sav-A-Lot they are only $.99 a bag, which feeds my family twice.

I make things easy on myself and make all of the taco pizzas the same. Meat mixture and cheese. They can add whatever taco stuff on top they want.

Taco pizza is easy to make, easy to eat!

The upside is only dirtying one pan, the down side is that I have to make it in batches because I can only 6 fit on my trays.

 Once these get baked in the oven for a few minutes, the shell softens enough so that it usually doesn’t break when you’re eating it.

Taco Pizza is a great, less messy way to enjoy Taco Tuesday!
