How to cook ground beef for pizza (can make a day ahead)

  1. Add all the ground beef and vegetables to a large skillet over medium heat or med - high heat with olive oil and salt and pepper. I like to arrange the vegetables on one side and the beef on the other to start. Dont add taco seasoning yet.
  2. Stir ground beef taco meat in a pan or large skillet for 10-15 minutes until its completely browned and is no longer pink. Add taco seasoning according to the package (it usually says to add water which youll definitely need at least ¼ cup to ½ cup of). Turn down heat to low and simmer, xo covered, for a few minutes until water evaporates. Transfer to a paper towel lined plate or bowl. Sprinkle with cilantro and toss to combine.

How to make Taco-style ground beef pizza recipe

  1. Help the dough get fluffy. Let pizza dough rise, ideally 4+ hours during the day, on the counter.
  2. Preheat the oven to 475 degrees F (with pizza baking stone in it - or preheat it to whatever pizza stone temperature is safe for the stone youre using).
  3. Prepare pizza dough for parbaking. Sprinkle half the flour on the work surface (large cutting board, etc.) and put half the flour to the side of the board to use as you stretch the dough.
  4. Stretch pizza dough. (Beginners should watch this pizza dough stretching tutorial on Sip Bite Go for help with this step.)
  5. Bake pizza crust on stone without toppings. Carefully remove pizza stone from the oven and prepare the crust quickly. Brush half the olive oil on the top of the pizza stone. Add the stretched pizza dough on top. Brush remaining olive oil on the outside inch of the pizza dough crust then bake pizza dough naked for 8 minutes on the middle or top oven rack.
  6. Add ground beef pizza toppings. Leave an inch around the outside of the dough for the crust when you assemble toppings. First, add dollops of pizza sauce on the parbaked dough and spread it around. Then sprinkle with taco seasoning and top with mozzarella cheese. Add cooked ground beef taco meat on top of pizza, then finish with a sprinkle of cheddar cheese.
  7. Bake ground beef taco pizza in the oven at 475°F for 8-12 minutes, or until the cheese has melted and starts to bubble. The bottom pizza crust will be golden brown.
  8. Allow pizza to cool and serve it. Transfer pizza-stone pizza to a cutting board, sprinkle cooked pizza with fresh chopped cilantro. Slice and enjoy when taco pizza is cool enough to eat.

  • Store in the Refrigerator: Store the wrapped or containerized pizza in the refrigerator for up to four days. After that time, its best to discard it.
