Taco Pizza

(originally made 8/2011)

We love pizza.   We love tacos.   When I saw this recipe on the Closet Cooking Blog, I knew it would go over great here.     I used the Soft Garlic Breadstick Dough recipe.   I love it because it's made in the bread machine, and I've never had it not turn out.     Since we all like our pizza different ways, I split the dough into 3 balls and we all made our own.    Mine- with jarred salsa, and topped with lettuce, tomato and sour cream after baking.     Tim's with about 6 Taco Bell mild sauce packets, and no veggies.   Jake doesn't like sauce in any form, so he just had the meat and cheese.      :)

This would also make great stromboli or calzone, and I'm betting would freeze great.
