  • 1 pound lean ground beef
  • 2 Tablespoons store-bought taco seasoning
  • 1 13.8-ounce package refrigerated pizza dough

  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese

DIRECTIONS


  1. Preheat the oven to 425°F.
  2. Wash your hands well with soap and hot water.
  3. Turn the eye of the stove to medium heat. Preheat the skillet.
  4. Add the ground beef to the skillet. Stir the beef as it cooks to break it into crumbles. This will take about 5 minutes.
  5. Drain the fat from the cooked ground beef.
  6. Add the taco seasoning to the skillet. Stir to mix the seasoning into the beef.
  7. Spread the pizza dough onto an ungreased baking sheet. Spread it up the sides of the pan.
  8. Put the baking sheet in the oven. Bake the dough for 8 to 10 minutes or until it is lightly browned.
  9. Remove the baking sheet from oven.
  10. Using a spoon or spatula, spread the refried beans over the pizza crust. Make an even layer.
  11. Spread the ground beef mixture over the top of the beans. Make an even layer.
  12. Sprinkle the cheese over the beef.
  13. Sprinkle the black olives, green onions, and corn kernels on top of the cheese. Top with sliced tomatoes.
  14. Put the baking sheet back in the oven. Bake the pizza for 5 to 7 minutes, or until cheese is melted.
  15. Remove the pizza from the oven. Let it cool slightly.
  16. Cut the pizza into 12 pieces and serve.
  17. Refrigerate leftovers within 2 hours.
