Taco Pizza Recipe {with Doritos!}

Taco Pizza | Taco Tuesday and Pizza Friday Unite!

I am in love with this Taco Pizza and I don’t care who knows it! While I have been making this version of pizza for a while, it’s lived on my site for a long time!

To make this (or any other pizza) I used my Homemade Pizza Dough Recipe, threw on some taco toppings {basically, everything Mexican-ish taken from my fridge} and baked it up. I added lots of fresh veggies overtop to give it that Taco Salad feel and served. I love fresh and cold ingredients on top of a piping hot pizza!! And Doritos. That was a little unexpected twist that I now am head over heels for. Who knew Doritos on a pizza would be so amazing. Um, I did. Obviously.

Anyways, this is our new favorite pizza and have a feeling it might be yours too 🙂

Main Ingredients Needed

Just a few ingredients are needed to start this Taco Pizza! Use what you have on hand and it’ll be just as tasty.

  • Pizza Dough – buy store-bought or make pizza dough yourself! (I prefer a homemade pizza crust).
  • Mild Southwest Salsa – this is what I used but if you have a favorite salsa, use that!
  • Mozzarella + Cheddar Cheese – both are used for creaminess and flavor.
  • Black Beans – these are full of fiber and super yummy! Feel free to replace it with pinto beans if you like those better.
  • Taco Meat – I use turkey taco meat but you can replace ground turkey with ground beef. I also have a great chicken taco meat recipe too.

Next comes all of the toppings! Two I would say are non-negotiable, but everything else is optional 🙂

  • Doritos: Nacho Cheese Doritos to be exact. These complete the taco experience and bring such a yummy crunch to the whole thing.
  • Bolthouse Cilantro Avocado Dressing: I LOVE this dressing. It’s light, creamy, and perfectly complements the pizza.
  • Lettuce
  • Tomatoes
  • Cilantro
  • Avocado
  • Lime Juice
  • Sour Cream
