Pizza is the ‘answer to everything‘ kind of food. It’s a winter food and a summer food. It’s a “we could eat it every single day” kind of food. Pizza is probably one of the most customizable dishes you can make. And it’s one of the meals you can make, and almost guarantee everyone will eat it. It’s easy to make several varieties per meal so the picky eaters can get their own pizza……….. but a least we are all eating the same food when pizza is on the table!

If you make pizza often, sometimes it’s easy to get a little bored with the same ol’ toppings.  Last week we decided to combine two of our favorite “easy diners” into one and made a Taco Pizza!

This pizza combines everything we love in a taco; taco seasoned chicken, salsa, Bush’s black beans, tomatoes, cheese, lettuce…..and my new favorite thanks to my new favorite Doritos Tacos…. we added crushed Nachos Cheese Doritos for added crunch and bold flavor all on a pizza crust!

The only thing it was missing was the avocado I bought and forgot to put on the pizza….grrrr.  Next time for sure!
