Taco-Pizza-2

What’s your favorite kind of pizza?  Well mine is without a doubt taco pizza.  I love pizzas that have loads and loads of toppings and taco fits that bill.  When I came across this recipe from Sweetie Petitti for Happy Joe’s Taco Pizza I knew I had to give it a try.  When I was young my family went to Happy Joe’s most Friday nights and I always ate their taco pizza, so even the thought of it gives me warm fuzzies.  When I actually tried this recipe it didn’t disappoint, with its delectable double cheese, smooth refried beans, flavorful meat, and wonderful fresh toppings…I was transported to my childhood! To save a little time, I used refrigerator pizza crust, but you can use any crust recipe you like.  So let’s get started making this yummy treat, it will be a new weeknight favorite for your family.  Here are the ingredients that you will need:
