How to Make a Spicy Taco Pizza

Author:

I have enjoyed creating food and perfecting recipes in the kitchen since I was 10 years old. I prefer homemade over store-bought.

Tacos and pizza? Yes, please!

Making Pizza Isn't Difficult

Making pizza is pretty easy. I enjoy making my own because I get to decide exactly what goes on it and how much. I have come up with many creative variations in the two years I have been making my own, and this was the first of many successful attempts.

Pizza Crust Options

There are many options to use for a pizza crust:

  • Make the crust yourself
  • Pre-made pizza dough
  • French bread, cut in half
  • Flatbread
  • English muffins for single-serving pizzas

If you use pizza dough that hasn't been cooked yet, follow my directions, or else follow the directions on the package.

If you use pre-cooked pizza crust, or bread, you'll want to preheat the oven to about 425ºF about 5-10 minutes before you slide the pizza in the oven. Cook the meat and veggies in advance, add them onto the bread, and put in the oven for about 4-5 minutes, until the cheese has melted.

Cook Time and Yield

Preparation Time:

  • Toppings: 5-10 minutes
  • Putting the pizza together: 10 minutes

Cooking Time:

  • Toppings: 15-20 minutes
  • Pizza: 8-18 minutes

Total time: 40-60 minutes*

*Note: If you make your own pizza dough, it will take approximately 10 minutes to mix up, and 45 minutes to let it rise. If you let it rise while you are preparing the toppings, the whole process should take right around 1 to 1 1/2hours (60-90 minutes).

Yield: 2 servings (3 slices per serving)

Ingredients

  • 1 cup ground beef or turkey, cooked
  • 1/4 cup onions, sauteed
  • 1/4 cup peppers, sauteed
  • 2 teaspoons taco seasoning
  • sprinkle black pepper, to taste
  • 1/8 cup black olives (optional)
  • 1 Tablespoon hot sauce (optional)
  • 1/4 cup salsa
  • 1/8 cup tomato sauce
  • 3/4 cup cheese
  • 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese (optional)
  • 1 pizza crust or bread

Instructions

  1. Cook the ground beef thoroughly. Using a meat thermometer, the temperature of the meat should be at least 160 degrees.
  2. Saute onions and green peppers. If you add them to ground beef, don't do until the meat is fully cooked. I like to saute them for about 5 minutes on medium/low.
  3. Drain the meat.
  4. Sprinkle taco seasoning over the cooked meat and veggies.
  5. In a separate bowl, mix the tomato sauce, salsa and hot sauce. If desired, heat them up. (I like to heat all of the toppings up in advance, especially if they have been in the fridge. It is not necessary, though.)
  6. Measure out the black olives, if using, as well as the cheese.
  7. Sprinkle dough or bread with Parmesan cheese, if desired.
  8. Spread the tomato sauce mix over it, and then sprinkle some of the cheese over it.
  9. Add the ground beef and veggies. Sprinkle with black olives, if desired. If you have any cheese left, sprinkle it on top.
  10. If using precooked crust or bread, cook for 5 minutes or until cheese has melted. If you are using an uncooked crust, leave in the oven for about 8-15 minutes, until the crust is browned and the cheese has melted.
Here is the rectangular pizza I made the other day. I only have one pizza pan, so when I make two pizzas, I use my cookie sheet for the second. It works well!

Kathryn (author) from Windsor, Connecticut on January 30, 2020:

You're welcome, and I hope that when you try it you will enjoy! I still make my own pizzas, and enjoy making it the way I like. I also use pizza dough to make an amazing pepperoni cheese roll. The toppings from this pizza would taste amazing on it as well. Sometime I plan on posting that as well. I haven't written new posts in a while.

Theblogchick from United States on January 05, 2020:

Thanks for sharing this awesome recipe. I love pizza. I think i will try to make one using your recipe.

Kathryn (author) from Windsor, Connecticut on March 24, 2014:

VVanNess,

I'm glad you like my variation, and if you try it I hope you enjoy. I like being creative with pizza, too. Lately I have made several other kinds, depending on what I have around, and I have made cheesy breadsticks with this same dough. Yum.

Thanks for taking the time to read and comment, and have a wonderful day!

Kathryn (author) from Windsor, Connecticut on March 24, 2014:

Rebecca,

This makes me hungry every time I come here! When I have time, I have several other hubs on pizza and breadsticks to post. Every time I make my own dough, I refer to this for the recipe.

Thanks for taking the time to read and comment, as well as for sharing.

Have a great day.

~ Kathryn

Kathryn (author) from Windsor, Connecticut on March 24, 2014:

Thoughtforce,

Hopefully this will win your husband over. I think it hits the spot!

You're welcome, and thanks for taking the time to read and comment. I hope you get the chance to try this.

It's nice to meet you, Tina. Have a wonderful day.

~ Kathryn

Victoria Van Ness from Fountain, CO on March 11, 2014:

Yummy! Yummy! I've been getting really creative with my pizzas lately. I'm going to have to give this recipe a shot!

Rebecca Mealey from Northeastern Georgia, USA on March 10, 2014:

Oh, this really makes me hungry. No Kidding, for real! What great photos! And all the rest too. You wowed me! Shared!

Christina Lornemark from Sweden on March 10, 2014:

A wonderful recipe hub and the pizza look delicious! I love pizza myself but my husband isn't so fond of them. Maybe this spicy variant will make him change his mind about pizza. Thanks for sharing, I will try it. It is so nice to meet you,

Tina

Kathryn (author) from Windsor, Connecticut on January 02, 2014:

Eddy,

Thanks, I really like this pizza. I don't make it as much now that I only cook for one, but it is worth the effort.

You have a happy new year, too, and thanks for taking the time to check out and comment on my hub!

It has been nice to see you on Facebook. It seems like your holidays have been going well, and you seem to keep busy.

~ Kathryn

Eiddwen from Wales on December 31, 2013:

Another wonderful recipe to save Kathryn.

Here's wishing you a great year ahead.

Eddy.

Kathryn (author) from Windsor, Connecticut on October 12, 2013:

Brandi,

If your kids like tacos and pizza, this pizza would probably be a hit! I hope you and your family enjoy it if you get the chance to try it.

Thanks for reading and commenting, and have a great day!

~ Kathryn

CraftytotheCore on October 12, 2013:

This looks delicious. My children would absolutely love it. We have tacos quite often. I used to make pizza a lot. I never tried taco pizza but foresee myself doing so in the near future. Thank you so much for the recipe.

Kathryn (author) from Windsor, Connecticut on October 11, 2013:

Insane Mundane,

Thanks for trying to vote it, even if it didn't work!

I love these pizzas, too, and I think making my own is such a satisfying experience. I can make it exactly the way I like! My roommate is growing these Trinidad Scorpion peppers. Maybe next time I make the pizza, he will let me use a (very) small piece of a pepper for extra heat.

Thanks for taking the time to read and comment, and have a wonderful day.

~ Kathryn

Insane Mundane from Earth on October 06, 2013:

I love these types of pizzas! Mexican/Taco Pizza is the bomb! I tried to vote this Hub up twice, but it wouldn't let me... LOL!

C E Clark from North Texas on September 12, 2013:

Pinned this delicious pizza recipe and gave you 5 more stars.

To continue our last conversation, yes, I work for our local school district (see my hub, "My Paying Job.") We're laid off all summer (no unemployment either).

Kathryn (author) from Windsor, Connecticut on August 14, 2013:

Sannel,

Thank you so much for coming over here to read and comment!

Mmm, I think a vegetarian pizza will be one of my upcoming hubs, because that sounds great. My roommate likes meat, so I cater to his tastes, but as soon as I move out on my own I won't be eating much meat.

I'm glad you like it. I was so excited when I actually got the hang of making a pizza crust that I really wanted to write this hub.

Have a wonderful day!

~ Kathryn

Sannel on August 14, 2013:

What a delicious and beautiful recipe hub! I love spicy food and this pizza looks yummy. However, I'll omit the meat and just add some extra vegetables and make it into a vegetarian. You have put a lot of work into this detailed and comprehensive hub. Well done! I'll bookmark and can't wait to give it a try. Thank you!

Sannel

Kathryn (author) from Windsor, Connecticut on August 11, 2013:

Lyricalvibes,

I've had the Mexican Pizza at Taco Bell, too. It used to be one of my favorite things there, although I haven't had it in a while. It's sad when companies change the recipe, and they don't taste as good as they do originally.

I think this recipe is very good, and my housemate loves it when I cook this for supper! It is very delicious, and I enjoyed sharing it so that others could enjoy it as well.

Thanks for reading and commenting, and have a wonderful night!

~ Kathryn

Reza Vergara from Orange County, CA. on August 08, 2013:

I occasionally get the Mexican pizza from Taco Bell but I think the recipe has changed over the years and it doesn't taste as good as I remembered the first time, this recipe looks way more appealing than the Mexican pizza from taco bell.

Kathryn (author) from Windsor, Connecticut on July 23, 2013:

Nuffsaidstan,

It is great. I have had it with chilies, too, because I like it hot! I hope you enjoy it.

Thanks for taking the time to read and comment, and have a wonderful day!

~ Kathryn

nuffsaidstan on July 23, 2013:

Hey Kathryn this looks great i shall have a go at this one but add a few extra chillies to mine i love em hot!

Kathryn (author) from Windsor, Connecticut on July 22, 2013:

Mariexotoni,

Thank you, that is an awesome compliment to hear! I appreciate it. I put a lot of effort into the layout, and including many different elements.

Beans- what a great idea! I have never put beans on the pizza, but I want to try that next time I make it. Thanks for the inspiration!

If you try this out, I hope you and your boyfriend love it. We sure do! Once I started making this for Andy, he started requesting it pretty much once a week or two.

Thanks for taking the time to read and comment, and have a great week!

~ Kathryn

mariexotoni on July 22, 2013:

This is one of the most beautiful recipe hubs I ever did see. Think I'll surprise my boyfriend with this, this weekend. Maybe I'll try adding some beans to half of it. Looks amazing. But really- the layout of this hub is gorgeous

Kathryn (author) from Windsor, Connecticut on June 29, 2013:

Claudedog, thanks, I'm glad you like it. I love pizza, too! Soon I will be posting one on how to make stuffed crust pizza. I made it like that the other day, I just need to actually put the recipe together in a hub.

I just checked out your page, and saw several articles I'm interested in reading, so I will be over your way shortly!

Thanks for taking the time to read and comment, and have a wonderful weekend.

~ Kathryn

Kathryn (author) from Windsor, Connecticut on June 18, 2013:

Cat,

Oh, no, I hate craving something that I can't make right then and there! It's torture! Mmm, I love both pizza and tacos, too, obviously.

No, you will not turn into a Gremlin if you crave or eat this after midnight. At least not as far as I know. Haha, I was a little scared of the movie "Gremlins" when I was a kid! I loved the first movie or two, but it was kind of creepy that they turned into vicious creatures under certain conditions.

I'm glad you like this, and thanks for the compliment! When I write recipes down, it's hard to stop at just a quick recipe.

I love using honey in the crust. It adds just a touch of sweetness. Of course, sugar does that, too. I just like the idea of squeezing some sticky honey in there better. Yum!

Thanks, Cat. I hope you slept okay, and that you have a beautiful day!

~ Kathryn

Cat from New York on June 17, 2013:

Kathryn Stratford,

Oh I just knew this would lead to trouble coming over here! Here it is, after midnight, you've taken two of my most favorite guilty pleasures and combined them... and I have not the ingredients home to make this right now... and I want this... right now! Ha ha... My goodness, is it okay to crave Spicy Taco Pizza after midnight? Will I turn into a gremlin? lol

This is excellent and your recipe hubs are filled with such energy it's so easy to get exited. Side note, I've never thought about using honey in my crust; how's that work for you?

Awesome!!! Up and several others... sharing too!

Cat

Kathryn (author) from Windsor, Connecticut on June 14, 2013:

CZCZCZ, thanks, I'm glad you love it! It is so tasty!

I actually have photos that look even more appealing than these. This first time I made it, I only had sliced cheese, so that is what I used. But it looks even better when you sprinkle shredded cheese over it!

Thanks for reading and commenting, and have a wonderful weekend!

CZCZCZ from Oregon on June 13, 2013:

What a great idea, I love it. The pictures are excellent sure makes that spicy taco pizza look tasty.

Kathryn (author) from Windsor, Connecticut on June 05, 2013:

Abby, you're welcome! When you have it as a treat, I hope you enjoy it very much. Have a wonderful week, and thank you so much for taking the time to read and commenting on my recipe hub.

Dr Abby Campbell from Charlotte, North Carolina on June 05, 2013:

This looks so yummy, Kathryn. I can't wait to make this for a "treat" day. Thanks for sharing such a greatly detailed recipe article. :-)

Kathryn (author) from Windsor, Connecticut on June 04, 2013:

Chris, it is delicious, and I was excited when I first created it. I like making up my own version of foods.

I agree. The dough is a little time consuming, but it is incredibly satisfying!

You're welcome, and thank you so much for reading, commenting, voting up and sharing. I appreciate it!

Have a fantastic week.

~ Kathryn

Chris Achilleos on June 04, 2013:

This taco pizza sure looks delicious and it is definitely a unique recipe. I love making my own pizza dough, it may be time consuming however, there is nothing better than home made food! Thanks for sharing this recipe Kathryn, it's a 5 star rating from me. Also, voted up and awesome!

Have a wonderful day,

Chris

Kathryn (author) from Windsor, Connecticut on June 02, 2013:

Agapsikap, I'm glad you enjoy my recipe. This is a very yummy pizza!

I hope you're having a fantastic weekend.

Kathryn (author) from Windsor, Connecticut on June 02, 2013:

Au fait, thank you very much, I'm glad you enjoy the recipe. I have noticed that this is different from the pizzas that are sold at basic pizza restaurants, and it is strange that this type of pizza wouldn't be common. Who doesn't like Mexican food?!

I hope you have time to make this at some point, and that you really enjoy it. I wish I could send you one!

You're off of work in the Summer? Oh, I hope you get to have some fun during that period. I'm sure the time off comes in handy.

Have a wonderful weekend!

C E Clark from North Texas on May 31, 2013:

This looks so yummy! Wish I could call up and have one delivered right now. Wonder why pizza restaurants don't offer Mexican pizzas and deliver them? I'm bookmarking this recipe because it really does look so good. I'm hoping to have time to do a few fun things like making this pizza this summer when I'm off work.

agapsikap from Philippines on May 31, 2013:

I love the ingredients! Great recipe for a pizza. Yuummy!

Susan Britton from Ontario, Canada on May 31, 2013:

Great thank you.

Kathryn (author) from Windsor, Connecticut on May 31, 2013:

Suzzycue, I completely understand that! Up until a few months ago, I didn't like to bother with making my own crust. It's nice that there are so many great options for pre-made crusts. I like using flatbread, or sometimes English muffins. They're convenient and tasty.

In my experience, cornmeal on the bottom of the pan hasn't burned at all. I prefer it over flour (mostly because of the corny taste).

Kathryn (author) from Windsor, Connecticut on May 31, 2013:

Susan, jalapenos are a great idea! I love spicy foods, so I think I will buy some peppers soon, and add them to my next pizza. Mmm, that is a great idea. I'm going to add jalapenos as an option, and credit you with the idea.

Thank you for reading and commenting, and have a fantastic weekend! Here in Boston, it is 93 degrees. Very balmy. I should probably get out and walk along the beach, instead of keeping myself cooped up inside!

Susan Britton from Ontario, Canada on May 31, 2013:

Great pizza Kathryn but I am too lazy to make the crust so I will stick to my flat bread pizza's but I love your ingredients and the use of a pizza pan. I also like you sprinkled it with cornmeal does the cornmeal burn on the bottom of the pizza?

Susan Zutautas from Ontario, Canada on May 31, 2013:

Haven't made a homemade pizza in months but after reading your recipe this has me craving one. Will try your recipe soon. I may add jalapenos for a real spicy kick :)

Jennifer from New Jersey on May 29, 2013:

You enjoy too!

Kathryn (author) from Windsor, Connecticut on May 29, 2013:

Theater Girl, this is really good! I like the spicy flavor, although anyone who doesn't like spice could always omit the hot sauce. This is so tasty, and easy to make. I love customizing my own pizza, too. Thnks for taking the time to read and comment on my recipe hub, and have a wonderful night.

Kathryn (author) from Windsor, Connecticut on May 29, 2013:

Audrey, this is really good! And every time I come here to respond to comments, I see the photos and get in the mood for it all over again!

Jennifer from New Jersey on May 29, 2013:

This sounds so delicious!

Audrey Howitt from California on May 29, 2013:

Oh yum!

Kathryn (author) from Windsor, Connecticut on May 28, 2013:

Xmags, I'm glad the photos look appetizing! You're welcome, and thanks for reading and commenting. I always like to hear from you!

I love putting the hot sauce directly into the sauce for the pizza. Mmm, so every bite is deliciously spicy.

Kathryn (author) from Windsor, Connecticut on May 28, 2013:

Rebecca, I'm glad you like my crust recipe. I only recently got the hand of making a good pizza crust. Once I bought a rolling pin, and rolled it thin enough, it cooked much better. Before then, it was hard to get the dough to all cook through. Now that I have made it several times, it is a cinch, and always comes out delicious!

I haven't heard of taco pizza much, but I love any type of taco or tortilla wrap, and I wanted to make a pizza that was just as delicious.

Thanks for taking the time to read and respond. I appreciate your feedback! If you try it out, I hope you like it.

Every time I see the photos, it makes me hungry for them!

Xeng from Philippines on May 26, 2013:

The photos made me drool. :)~ Thanks for sharing both the dough and the link to crust alternatives. :) This recipe makes eating pizza easier so now we don't have to add hot sauce any more. You just saved us from all the hassle! Thank you!

Rebecca Mealey from Northeastern Georgia, USA on May 26, 2013:

I like your crust recipe. And the photo of that pizza makes me hungry. I don't believe I have seen a Taco pizza recipe before, this is very unique!

Kathryn (author) from Windsor, Connecticut on May 20, 2013:

Indian Chef, you're welcome. I have had many varieties at home, but this one is very tasty.

Mmm, I do like pizza with chicken on it, too.

Thanks for reading and commenting, and for the vote.

Indian Chef from New Delhi India on May 19, 2013:

I like eating pizzas but never had this topping in pizza. We usually have cheese, chicken, mutton or olives and other topping. Thanks for introducing to new way of making pizza. Voted 5 stars.

Kathryn (author) from Windsor, Connecticut on May 04, 2013:

Thanks, Moonlake, I'm glad you like it! I appreciate the vote-up. Have a fantastic weekend, and I hope the weather is as beautiful as it is here (it's 50's, a bit cool, but sunny and clear).

moonlake from America on May 04, 2013:

This looks really good enjoyed your pictures and each step you put on this hub. Voted up.

Kathryn (author) from Windsor, Connecticut on April 29, 2013:

Deborah, your husband must be a pro if he doesn't use a recipe! I will be using one for a while, because I'm new at it, but it is fantastically easy. It's cool that your family makes homemade pizza a lot.

I've never had Mama Mary's brand. I'll have to keep an eye out for it.

Thanks, I'm glad you think my pizza looks delicious. It really is!

Thank you for reading and commenting, and have a great week!

Deborah Neyens from Iowa on April 29, 2013:

We make homemade pizza a lot. My husband always makes the crust. He doesn't even use a recipe but makes a wonderful, crispy whole wheat crust. For a premade crust, I like the Mama Mary's brand.

Your taco pizza looks delicious.

Kathryn (author) from Windsor, Connecticut on April 26, 2013:

Suzie, wow, a pizza oven must be a great thing to have! I like watching "HouseHunters International", a Home and Garden Television show that takes place in different places around the world, and there were a few homes in Italy that were very interesting. One of them had a pizza oven. Several of the places they showed were very old and rustic, but once the new homeowners put work into it, they turned out looking pretty good. I can't imagine living anywhere other than the USA. Italy would be at the top of my list if I lived somewhere else, although I'm sure the idea of what it's like and the reality would be completely different.

I'm so glad you liked my recipe hub. My boyfriend liked it so much, and it was so easy (time-consuming, but worth it!) that I didn't want to miss the opportunity to write a hub about it!

Thanks for reading and commenting, as well as sharing :)

Suzanne Ridgeway from Dublin, Ireland on April 26, 2013:

Hi Kathryn,

Wow, this is amazing! Love the detail you have gone into, I have never made pizza base before and so going to try this. I love pizza so this is just the ticket to in the groove for our life in Italy. We have an original pizza oven outside there which really excites me to learn to use for baking! Thanks soooooo much, voting everything, sharing everywhere and pinning! Great recipe!!!

Kathryn (author) from Windsor, Connecticut on April 25, 2013:

Vespawoolf, thank you for the compliment! I have only recently been making pizza. One time before the crust came out a bit thick and doughy. But once I bought a rolling pin to help me roll the dough out, it was much easier to get it just right. Ever since then, it has been a cinch! I'm making some tonight for my boyfriend's birthday (out of everything I bake, this is what he asked for), so I look forward to a delicious meal tonight. This time I have shredded cheese, as well as a few other toppings, so I can make an even tastier one!

You're welcome for the English muffin recipe mention. It is such a novel idea, and works well with my pizza recipe.

Thanks, Vespawoolf, I appreciate your feedback. When you have an oven again, I hope you enjoy this recipe (or whatever variation of it you use). Have a good weekend!

Vespa Woolf from Peru, South America on April 25, 2013:

Wow, you are quite the expert at homemade pizza! I like your two-pan method for a crispy crust. My husband was just talking to his cousin yesterday with "face time" and they were eating purchased taco pizza. Once we have an oven again, I plan to make this for my husband. When we order pizza, we request no olives. I plan to link my calzone hub to this one--thank you for the mention of my English muffin recipe!

Kathryn (author) from Windsor, Connecticut on April 25, 2013:

Awesome, glad you like it, Virtualit. Have a fantastic weekend!

Abdus Salam from Bangladesh on April 25, 2013:

ha ha ha, its really enjoyable. i am sure your bf love it. thanks

Kathryn (author) from Windsor, Connecticut on April 25, 2013:

I hope you do make it, Vertualit. You're bound to love it! You're welcome, and enjoy. I'm making some more tonight (enough for leftovers) for my boyfriend's birthday, and I look forward to it.

Kathryn (author) from Windsor, Connecticut on April 25, 2013:

Rumanasaiyed, I love pizza, too. Making it myself gives me the option to make whatever kind I want, and add my favorite toppings and spices. Thanks for reading and commenting, and if you try it I hope you like it!

Kathryn (author) from Windsor, Connecticut on April 25, 2013:

Sneha, thanks for reading and commenting. I'm glad you enjoyed it. I like the feel of making something from scratch. It is very satisfying to make it when I have time. Actually, I am making a couple of pizzas tonight, in celebration of my boyfriend's birthday. Out of all of the meals I cook, this is the one he chose for tonight.

I hope you enjoy it!

Abdus Salam from Bangladesh on April 25, 2013:

muaaaaaaaah, like it and trying to make. Thanks

Rumana from Sharjah, UAE on April 25, 2013:

I just love Pizza. Your recipe is awesome, will surely try it!!

Sneha Sunny from India on April 25, 2013:

Interesting! I really like to make pizza at home rather than buying. Will give this a try. Really enjoyed this hub!

Rated and voted up!

Hi Kathryn! I am writing this comment in a hurry as I am going to make this right now and cannot wait. It is so nice of you to share this recipe.

Kathryn (author) from Windsor, Connecticut on April 23, 2013:

Cyndi, thanks! I'm glad you like it.

You're welcome. I am glad I discovered your blog, because I love it! I enjoy what you have to say, and I can relate to you more than almost anyone I have "seen" online so far. Many hugs back to you :)

Cynthia Calhoun from Western NC on April 23, 2013:

What a beautiful, comprehensive hub! Yummy stuff! I also just had to come over and thank you - so much - for all your wonderful comments and insights over at my blog. You're so sweet and wonderful! Many HUGS!!

Kathryn (author) from Windsor, Connecticut on April 23, 2013:

Shining Irish Eyes from Upstate, New York on April 22, 2013:

Thanks for the recipe share. This made my mouth water.

Kathryn (author) from Windsor, Connecticut on April 21, 2013:

CharronsChatter, this is really tasty! I always like to put a new spin on recipes. It would have been ideal to use shredded Mexican blend cheese (maybe next time), but I only had sliced cheese on hand. It was still great!

Thanks, I'm glad you like my layout. I spent quite a bit of time on it, but it was fun.

I'm holding up, and the many Bostonians really have pulled together. Now that the second bombing suspect has been found, we can breathe easy, and hopefully those who were hurt the most will heal okay. I feel for them.

Thanks again for reading and commenting on my article. Since you are a foodie diva, it is especially a great compliment!

Kathryn (author) from Windsor, Connecticut on April 21, 2013:

Kashmir, thanks, it is amazing! Thank you so much, I appreciate your comment, compliments, and feedback. Thanks for sharing, too. I hope a lot of people get to try this out :)

I shared to facebook, but can't figure out where else...is there anywhere else? I looked at FAQs but didn't see anything right off the bat...and thanks for any 411..:)

Karen Robiscoe from California on April 21, 2013:

This looks super tasty, Kathryn--and what a nice spin on an old favorite. I love mixing and matching cuisines, myself, and mexican styled pizza sounds fabu! Your layout is just incredible, too, so well put together and informative. I am going to try to figure out how to share, but for sure I have voted things with thumbs!! :)

I'm glad I have this pizza recipe here. I was wanting to have a recipe to make the crust so this is just awesome. Excellent pictures and instructions. One of these days with more time on hand we will be trying this.

Many thanks for this and voting this up, useful, interesting. Rated 5 stars.

Vicki,

I'm glad I'm not the only one who's nervous about 550 degree. The 450 degrees worked perfectly fine for me, so I wouldn't even bother to turn mine on higher than that.

Thanks for reading and commenting, and I'm so glad you like it! Have a wonderful Sunday afternoon!

Victoria Lynn from Arkansas, USA on April 21, 2013:

Yummy! I love spicy! I haven't had a good taco pizza in a long time. This looks delicious. Like you, I'm nervous about the 550 degrees. I've never heard of having the oven that high! Great hub. Many votes!

Kathryn (author) from Windsor, Connecticut on April 21, 2013:

Chitrangada, there are many options at stores here, too, but sometimes it's definitely nice to make it fresh at home!

Thanks for the compliments, I put quite a bit of work into making sure it was just right.

You're welcome, and thanks for reading and commenting on my article.

Kathryn (author) from Windsor, Connecticut on April 21, 2013:

Janet, I like adding lots of photos for these hubs. I am a visual person, and it is nice to see the different steps.

It is great for people who love spicy food! Although it would be easy to leave out the spiciness, if someone doesn't like much spice.

Thanks for reading and commenting, and have a nice day!

Kathryn (author) from Windsor, Connecticut on April 21, 2013:

Thanks, Bill, I'm glad you like. It is pretty fun to make! Thank you for reading and commenting, and have a wonderful Sunday.

Chitrangada Sharan from New Delhi, India on April 21, 2013:

My family loves pizza and so do I making it. Although pizza base is available at the stores, they are no match to home made pizza base.

This is a very well written and well presented hub. The pictures are quite helpful too.

Thanks for sharing!

Janet Giessl from Georgia country on April 21, 2013:

This looks very great and your instructions are also easy to follow as you provide many photos. I think my husband would love this kind of pizza because he loves spicy food.

Bill De Giulio from Massachusetts on April 21, 2013:

Hi Kathryn. Sounds great and looks like fun making this yourself. Great instructions, looks easy to follow. Have a great day.

Kathryn (author) from Windsor, Connecticut on April 21, 2013:

Ghaelach, I hope that if you try it, you really like it! I sure thnk it is tasty, and have a feeling I will be making another one soon.

Thanks for reading and commenting on my article, and have a wonderful Sunday.

Kathryn (author) from Windsor, Connecticut on April 21, 2013:

Joe, thanks, I think it is very delicious! I'm glad you like how I incorporate other hubs into it. I always keep my eyes on a lookout for hubs that are related, because I like to supplement my own article, as well as send people to other fantastic hubs. When I first started on HubPages, some of the really good Hubbers did that, and I liked it.

Thank you for reading and commenting, and I hope you enjoy the rest of your weekend.

Ghaelach on April 21, 2013:

Morning Kathryn.

A nice spicy pizza once a month suits me just fine. The way you've described it looks great and I'll be giving it a try.

LOL Ghaelach

Hawaiian Odysseus from Southeast Washington state on April 20, 2013:

Oh, this looks so ono (delicious)! Kathryn, I also like how you incorporated other writers' hubs as complements to your recipe article. You not only set the bar high here on HP; you also embrace social connectivity! Loving it in SE Washington! Aloha!

Joe

Kathryn (author) from Windsor, Connecticut on April 20, 2013:

Bill, I feel honored that you would read my hub on the weekend! Thanks!

I hope you enjoy the pizza recipe. I agree with your "hotter the better" statement. I love spicy food! I put hot sauce on almost every meal. Except for cold cereal.

You have a great Sunday, too, my Olympian friend!

Bill Holland from Olympia, WA on April 20, 2013:

I'm limiting myself to reading ten hubs today, but no way was I missing yours, and I'm glad I stopped by. This sounds delicious. The hotter the better, thank you very much. :) We will definitely try this, Kathryn!

Have a great Sunday my friend.

Kathryn (author) from Windsor, Connecticut on April 20, 2013:

Careermommy, thanks, I'm glad you like. I like spicy anything, so it was ideal for me to make a spicy pizza!

You're welcome, and have a wonderful weekend.

Kathryn (author) from Windsor, Connecticut on April 20, 2013:

MJ, thanks for the compliments. You made me laugh with your comment! You're better at making a kitchen than cooking in it! That is great.

Tirralan Watkins from Los Angeles, CA on April 20, 2013:

Wow, spicy pizza. I never thought about that, but it sounds good. Why not? It looks great, and the instructions seem very simple. Thank you for sharing it, Kathryn.

mjkearn on April 20, 2013:

Hi Kathryn

Fabulous hub and formatting. Great instructions and I'm sure if I tried I could make this but I'm much better at making a kitchen than doing anything in it.

Great job and voted up.

MJ.
