Quick Pizza Dough. Yep, you read that right, no kneading, no fuss - quick. This is an excellent dough to begin with if you are just starting to make your own bread. It is super forgiving and the stand mixer does all the work! Do note that this is going to be a slightly denser flatbread type of pizza dough, since it is not allowed to rise.
As for the toppings, I was having one of those clean out the refrigerator type of meals. I had made tacos earlier in the week and had just enough left over to make one taco. Who’s going to eat one taco? No one, that’s who, so Taco Pizza it became! And there you have it! A quick and easy pizza, that didn’t come out of a box!
*Add any of your favorite taco ingredients to this pizza. It is easy to customize!
Quick Pizza Dough and Taco Pizza
¼ - ½ cup salsa
1 ½ cups Mexican 4 cheese blend
1 cup mozzarella cheese
1 cup taco meat
1 cup black beans, drained and rinsed
Adapted from Oven Love
1 tbsp active dry yeast
1 cup warm water (around 115 degrees F)
1 tsp sugar
1 tsp salt
2 tbsp olive oil
1 ½ cups all purpose flour
1 cup whole wheat flour
Preheat oven to 450 degrees F.
In the bowl of a stand mixer, combine the yeast and water; whisk to combine.
Add the remaining ingredients and mix with the paddle attachment. Once the ingredients are combined, switch to the dough hook and mix on medium speed until the dough forms a soft ball (about 2 minutes). Turn the mixer off and let the dough rest for 3 minutes.
Turn the mixer back on to medium speed and knead with the dough hook for another 3-4 minutes. Turn the dough out onto a floured surface.
Cut the dough in half. Roll one half very thin onto a floured pizza paddle. Transfer the dough to a baking sheet and prick all over with a fork. Repeat with the second half of the dough.
Top each dough half with salsa, cheese, taco meat, and beans. Bake for 9-11 minutes or until the crust in browned and the cheese is melted.
