We have done lots of experimenting over the past year and have found some hungry neighbors that are always willing to test out our creations.
This past weekend we tried a few new toppings and this Mexican Pizza turned out the be the crowd favorite.
It is a pretty simple recipe and easy to follow.
I make our own pizza dough using the bread machine. It is fool proof and always comes out perfect.
Add the ingredients into the machine in the order they are listed.
3/4 Cup warm water
2 Tablespoons Vegetable Oil
2 Cups White Flour
1/2 teaspoon Sugar
1/2 teaspoon Bread Machine/Fast Rise Yeast
Put the machine on dough setting and let it go to work.
After it is complete, pull the dough out of the machine and put it in a big bowl. Put a towel over it and let it rise for another hour.
After it is finished it is ready to go.
I split the batch into 2 and make 2 thin crust pizza's on the grill. Or you can do 1 and it will be more like a hand tossed pizza.
So after I roll it out to about a 12 inch round I put it on a heated pizza stone that is in the grill already. I let the first side brown a bit then flip it over and immediately put the toppings on.
This Mexican Pizza is a twist on having an actual taco.
The base is refried beans and taco sauce mixed. I used a half of can of beans and a half cup of taco bell's taco sauce.
Then I put cooked taco meat on top of the beans. I used ground turkey that was cooked with onions and red peppers and then seasoned with taco seasoning that I made.
The cheese comes on next. Lots of freshly shredded cheddar.
Close the lid and let the cheese finish melting.
When it is all cooked I pull it out of the grill and top it with shredded lettuce, chopped tomato and a swirl of sour cream.
Pretty simple and so tasty.
