Flatbread Taco Pizza

Flatbread Taco Pizza

 

You know we’re all about home cooking around here. But that doesn’t mean we don’t appreciate that way store-bought ingredients can help us get a meal on the table. And when it comes to pizza, I’d actually prefer to use a store bought flatbread to making my own pizza dough or even using store bought pizza dough. On a side note, if someone can teach me to manage pizza dough better, I’d be eternally grateful. I can never get it to stretch out and it ends up being super thick and dough-y. What am I doing wrong?! Okay, I’m digressing….

Righ, flatbread pizza! How I love thee! I’ll sometimes by some little ones and get the kids to make their combinations. But once I had the idea for Taco Pizzas I couldn’t shake it. Two of our favourite meals rolled into one? Uh, yes please. I also love that this recipe delivers a hearty, gooey pizza and a salad right on top. How good is that? Here’s my only request – don’t skip on the crema! I know you might look at this and think, I’m not doing that. But do that! Honestly, the creamy, tart saltiness pulls the whole thing together.

Taco Pizza

Ingredients

  • 6 x 8 flatbread
  • 1/3 cup salsa
  • 1 lb ground beef
  • 1/2 onion, finely chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 tsp chili powder
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 cup grated cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 avocado
  • 1 Tbsp lime juice
  • 1 Tbsp sour cream
  • salt and pepper
  • shredded lettuce
  • chopped tomato
  • cilantro

Method

Preheat the oven to 450 degrees.

Warm up a drizzle of olive oil in a large skillet and add onions and garlic. Cook them until they start to become translucent. Now add your beef and the spices. Break up the beef with the back of a wooden spoon and stir to incorporate all the ingredients. Cook until the beef is cooked through then remove from heat.

Place your flatbread on a baking sheet. Spread the salsa across the bread, leaving about a 1/2 inch margin around the edges. Now evenly top the salsa with your beef mivture. Sprinkle cheese on top. Now pop that baby into the oven for 15 to 20 minutes, or until the cheese is melted and bubbling.

While the pizza is cooking, combine the avocado, lime juice, sour cream and salt and pepper in a jar and shake it until you have a smooth crema. You can add more lime juice if it is too thick.

Once your pizza is out of the oven, top with shredded lettuce, fresh tomatoes and cilantro and drizzle your avocado crema. Cut into squares and serve.
