Sans Shell, Avec Crust

Written by , Posted in Thoughts

Do you like tacos? I like tacos. I also like pizza. Ah lahk it ah laht (if you don’t know  the movie, Dumb and Dumber feel free to disregard that last line :)). So much so that we have a tradition in our family that we have it (almost) every Friday for dinner. I’ve made many different kinds of pizza. From traditional Pepperoni Pizza to Roasted Broccoli and Garlic Pizza, to BBQ Apple Bacon Pizza… we’ve had a good variety.

Since we both really enjoy tacos, a few weeks ago I made us a Taco Pizza. It’s basically anything that you’d enjoy on a taco, even lettuce! Don’t worry, I didn’t bake it with the lettuce on it. We topped the pizza with it, some yogurt, and some taco sauce for serving. I was a little bit hesitant about the lettuce, but trying it with and without, I liked it better with.

This isn’t going to replace tacos, but it’s a yummy alternative! Hope you enjoy it! Might be something fun to include to your Thanksgiving week menu that’s totally different from turkey and mashed potatoes. 🙂

Happy Eating!
