The other day, the Hubs asked if he could make a taco pizza. I told him sure, and if it made “the cut” he could be the Tasty Tuesday recipe for this week. Well, as you can see by the title of this post, it made the list. The funny thing is, taco pizza in our house is kind of a chimera. The last time we made taco pizza– in 1997– we managed to catch my mother-in-law’s stove on fire. We haven’t made a taco pizza since. Thankfully, we have gotten wise in our old age– and purchased a fire extinguisher– the baking of the taco pizza was without mishap and no fires were reported. So, enjoy.
