Taco pizza recipe

In some parts of the United States (like Minnesota) you can actually buy Taco Pizza. But in other states, it is unheard of. My husband and I went on dates to our local Godfathers in Minnesota and it became a thing for us, but then we moved farther south and found they no longer sold or had heard of taco pizza. Oh no! so I had to make my own homemade taco pizza recipe. I created this taco pizza recipe after lots of trial and error. I’ve been told it tastes like Godfathers Taco Pizza reicpe , or happy joe’s taco pizza recipe, and even  casey’s taco pizza recipe.  Now matter what it reminds you of, I guarantee it will become a much saught after pizza recipe in your home like it is in ours.  Now don’t tell me you don’t like it if you haven’t tried it! I use to think I didn’t like it either, then I tried it, and let me tell you I LOVE it!

This homemade taco pizza is so simple to make and such a wonderful change from regular homemade pizza your family will eagerly request this pizza recipe again and again and again.
