(originally made 8/2011)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.
