I love pizza and am always trying to come up with new ways of making it and this Taco Pizza does not disappoint. This recipe is a lighter take on the taco pizza my friends and I used to order in college. It provides as little or as much spice as you want based on the taco sauce and/or salsa you use. You can add additional toppings of your choice if you wish, just account for anything additional in the points/nutritional calculations!
This is a great alternative to Taco Tuesdays and/or Pizza Night. It's something your whole family will love, even the kids!

Taco pizza is a wonderful variation of regular pizza with a little kick. It has all the spice of tacos with the pizza crust base. It's a hearty (and spicy) meal for relatively low points!
- 1/2 cup greek yogurt, fat-free
- 1/2 cup self-rising flour
- 1 envelope taco seasoning
- 1/2 cup ground turkey, 99% fat-free
- 2/3 cup water
- 1 cup fat-free cheddar cheese
- 1/2 cup taco sauce or salsa
- 1 cup shredded lettuce
- 1 cup chopped tomatoes
Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Line baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
In a small bowl, mix the Greek yogurt and flour to make dough. Knead dough and roll out onto prepared baking sheet to form pizza crust.
Bake crust alone for 10-12 minutes.
While crust is baking, cook taco meat. Spray skillet with non-stick spray and cook meat on medium heat. Once meat is cooked, drain any excess liquid. Add taco seasoning and water to skillet and stir to combine.
Chop tomatoes and set aside.
When pizza crust is finished baking, remove from oven.
Assemble the pizza: spread taco sauce or salsa on the pizza crust. Top with cooked taco meat, spreading out evenly. Top with cheese and bake for an additional 12-14 minutes.
When pizza is cooked, top with lettuce and tomatoes. Slice and serve!
