Taco Pizza Pinwheels
Most are fans of tacos. I know my family requests taco night a couple times per week, not just Taco Tuesday, lol. Since we were enjoy a family movie day this past weekend, I decided to feed their taco cravings over the weekend with these Taco Pizza Pinwheels.
When I am looking for a taco type appetizer for parties, I will usually make our Mini Taco Bowl Bites. I have made them for years and they are always a hit. While surfing around Pinterest a few weeks back, I spotted The Girl Who Ate Everything’s Taco Pizza Bites. I immediately thought about making them for the kiddos. They were sure to be a hit with these taco eating kids.
I think these little pinwheels would be great for taco night, game night, or even a party that you need a appetizer for.
I used the same method for my ground beef as I did with our CopyCat Taco Bell Mexican Pizza recipe. I thought making the mixture more spreadable would work perfect and I was right.
These Taco Pizza Pinwheels as I call them are so super simple. You will need ground beef, a taco season packet or Homemade Taco Seasoning, pizza dough (I used store bought), cheese, and your favorite taco toppings.
3/4 lb Ground Beef
1 can Pillsbury Refrigerated Pizza Crust
3/4 packet Taco Seasoning Mix (1 oz packet) or Homemade Taco Seasoning
3 tbsp Water
4 oz shredded Sharp Cheddar Cheese
4 oz shredded Pepper Jack Cheese
Additional toppings: tomato, sour cream, and green onion
Preheat oven to 400.
Spray a baking sheet with non stick spray.
Brown ground beef and drain excess grease.
Add taco seasoning and water. Mix well and cook for 5 minutes. Remove from heat.
Transfer taco meat to food processor and pulse for up to 1 minute to reduce coarseness.
Unroll pizza dough and square up and stretch into a rectangle.
Spread the taco meat evenly on top of the pizza dough.
Sprinkle each of the cheeses evenly over the meat.
Roll up tightly, starting with the long edge of the pizza
Cut the foll into 1′ slices using dental floss or a knife.
Place rolls on prepared sheet and bake for 10-12 minutes or until golden brown.
Garnish with additional toppings and serve.
