A family-favorite dinner, this delicious taco pizza recipe is made with a crescent roll crust and simple ingredients. It’s quick and easy too; you can whip up this filling meal in 30 minutes or less!
I’m always on the lookout for easy meals my family will enjoy. I enjoy cooking but with four children, I’m busy and if I’m going to make dinner, it usually needs to be quick.
A few years ago, I discovered this crescent roll taco pizza recipe and with a few small adaptions, it quickly became a favorite family dinner that we make once a week.
2 tubes (8 oz each) refrigerated crescent rolls
1 package (8 oz) cream cheese, softened
1 cup (8 oz) sour cream
1 pound ground beef or ground turkey
1–2 envelopes or 2–4 Tbsp taco seasoning, to taste
1 medium tomato, chopped
2 cups shredded Mexican cheese
1 cup shredded lettuce
optional: avocado, taco sauce, hot sauce, black beans
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
Unroll the crescent roll dough and lay out on a large ungreased cookie sheet. Pinch the perforations together to seal. Bake at 375 for 8-10 minutes or until light golden brown.
While the crescent rolls are baking, mix the softened cream cheese and sour cream together. Remove any lumps with a whisk. Set aside.
Brown the ground beef and drain. Add a can of drained black beans, optional, for more protein if desired. Add the taco seasoning and 1/4 cups of water. Simmer for 3-5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
When the crescent roll pizza crust is finished baking, remove from the oven and set aside to cool for 3-5 minutes. Spread the sour cream / cream cheese mixture over the crescent rolls. Sprinkle the ground beef mixture evenly over the top, followed by lettuce, tomatoes, cheese, and any other desired toppings.
Cut into serving-size pieces and serve immediately or store in the refrigerator for cold taco pizza to be served later.
