Hello again my friends, and welcome back!!  So glad you could join me again.

Busy day today!  Doctor’s appointment in the morning, quick trip to Walmart for a few odds and ends, shuttling kids around as usual, don’t feel like I actually accomplished much other than making dinner, and that took WAY longer than I expected, but it was SO worth it!

Homemade Taco Pizza


3/4 cup luke warm water

2 Tbsp vegetable oil

2 cups all purpose flour

1/2 Tsp sugar

1/2 Tsp salt

2 Tsp active dry yeast

Set bread machine to DOUGH.

Add water and oil to pan.

Add flour, sugar and salt to pan.  Tap pan to level ingredients, pushing a little into the corners.

Make a well in the center of the ingredients and add yeast.  Lock pan into bread machine.

Make sure the machine is set for DOUGH, and start the machine.  My machine ran for 1 hour 20 minutes on this setting, which I was NOT expecting, so dinner was REALLY late!

When done, remove pan from machine, turn dough out onto floured surface, knead about 1 minute, then allow to rest for 15 minutes.

Roll dough out to fit a 12 or 14 inch pizza pan.  Place dough on a greased pizza pan that has been sprinkled with corn meal.  Press dough into pan forming an edge.  Let dough rise in warm, dry place for 20-25 minutes.  (I actually used a pizza stone rather than a pan, and I didn’t grease it, but I did use the cornmeal!)

Top with a few tablespoons of salsa, spread VERY thin, and…

Taco Beef

1 pound ground beef

2/3 cup water

1/4 cup taco seasoning mix

Brown ground beef, drain.  Mix in water and seasoning, reduce heat and simmer about 10 minutes.  Spread on pizza crust.

Top with about 1 cup shredded Mexican blend cheese.

Bake 25 minutes at 425 degrees.  Cut into 8 slices and serve!  Will be VERY hot!

We also had salad and fruit with this.  Nice meal!

Until tomorrow friends, eat well, love well, live well!
