  • I loved this recipe. I used ground turkey instead of beef. Cut the ingredient portions in half and it was fantastic. It's hard to find recipes kids will like as well but this pleased everyone. - 1/31/13

  • Tasted good, but you only need about 1/3 of the toppings. I used a 1/2 lb. of beef, about 3/4 of salsa, 1/2 cup onion (cooked with the beef), and about 1.5 cups of lettuce. We liked it, but wouldn't go through the work again since it tastes roughly the same on a flour tortilla. - 11/5/07

  • I enjoyed this. I cooked all the meat, took about 1/4 of it out for later use, mixed in pinto beans and seasoning. I only put on the pizza what I thought it needed of the meat mixture and will use the rest of the mixture for taco salad lunches. MMMM....... - 10/8/07

  • I made it last night! It was great...but just a few tips:
    1. Don't "mush" the dough, I'd just use it as a square dough, I had bad luck with that part.
    2. You really don't need a full pound of meat unless you are a meat lover.
    That's it, it really was good and FILLING! - 10/2/07

  • I made this last night. Changed it to match my tastes. Made the bread, added salsa, 1/2 cup onion, only 1/2 pound of meat with seasoning, and cheese- I put it back back in the oven to warm up the salsa and melt the cheese and let my hubby put his lettuce, olives, and sour cream on. - 9/12/07
