Homemade Double Decker Taco Pizza Recipe

You all know I’m about making all different kinds of  pizza recipes, I’ve even dedicated a whole page on  How to Make 10 Yummy Pizza Recipes Step by Step for my fam! I stepped up my game and created this Homemade Double Decker Taco Pizza Recipe.  You know like the ones you see from the pizza parlors!

Pizza is SO is so cost effective, but making the same thing over and over can get boring even to the biggest pizza lovers! 

This was sooo easy to make…don’t let the fancy look fool you.  Your family will love this twist on pizza if they love tacos AND pizza..

Homemade Double Decker Taco Pizza Recipe

Kitchen Gadgets, tools and doo dads you need for this easy recipe:

  • Mixing bowl ~ I LOVE my rubber bottom mixing bowls for just about everything.  I even use them for making bread dough.  However if you LOVE your glass bowls that is perfectly ok because making pizza dough really works in anything!
  • Silicone Spoon ~ I LOVE my silicone spoons! I’ve pretty much switched over to using silicone for a ton of my utensils…reason? You can use them in heat and they clean soooo easy!  I do love my wood though too…
  • Pizza Stone ~ If you want to cook your pizzas to perfection a pizza stone is what you need.  I have never burnt a pizza on a pizza stone…maybe the top…but never the bottom! With aluminum pizza pans things can burn so easily.  It’s worth the one time investment in a great pizza stone.  Also as the stone get’s seasoned (that means after years of cooking on it) There is almost NO clean up.  Nope not kidding. Nothing sticks to it anymore…simply rinse with super hot water.
  • Pizza Cutter ~ Well this goes without saying….I use my pizza cutter for just about everything…not kidding.  I even cut sandwiches, french toast, just about anything with my pizza cutter!

Ingredients

for Homemade Pizza Dough (you can use store bought if you like)

This recipe makes 2 LARGE pizzas, which is what you need for the top and bottom layer

  • 2 Cups warm water
  • 2 T brown sugar
  • 2 T yeast

Whisk together and let the yeast proof..this means you let it sit and get foamy/bubbly (about 10 minutes)

Then add:

  • 2 T olive oil
  • 1 1/2 t salt
  • 5 Cups flour  ( you can use any kind of flour)  If you use wheat..be sure and mix only 1/2 wheat with 1/2 white or it will be too dry.
  • Then Knead for 5 min.
  • Let rise for 1 hour

Ingredients

for the Taco part of Pizza ~

  • 1 lb Ground Beef or Turkey
  • 1 Pkg of your fave Taco seasoning
  • Canned spaghetti sauce of your choosing
  • 2 Cups Shredded Mozzarella and Cheddar cheese ( more if you LOVE cheese)
  • Lettuce ~ Shredded
  • Onion ~ Chopped
  • Red Peppers ~ Chopped
  • Tomato ~ Chopped
  • Garlic Salt ~ optional

Directions:

While Dough is rising ~ cook your taco meat according to the directions on pkg. and chop up your veggies.  Set aside

Sprinkle your pizza stone with cornmeal if you have it ~ a simple trick that even pizza parlors do to keep pizza from sticking to pizza stone.

Cut dough in half and roll out first dough.  Roll it so that it over hangs the size of your pizza stone by about 1 – 2 inches and top with spaghetti sauce, taco meat and cheese. As much or little as you like.

Roll out the other half of the pizza dough so that it too overlaps the pizza stone and place on top

Now simply fold both top and bottom edges up and roll them together.  Sort of pinching as you go.

Notice that my edges are NOT PERFECT.  All the imperfections sort of disappear as the pizza cooks and the dough rises a little in the oven.

Poke some steam holes in the top

If you want a super beautiful golden brown crust, brush a raw stirred egg on with a pastry brush.  This is not a necessary step…but it’s oh so pretty. Oh and it adds absolutely no flavor.

Sprinkle with garlic salt ~ optional

Place in the oven for 20 min at 425 degrees.

We add all of the additional goodies/veggies on top. That way our picky eaters can brush off the and don’t have to have it.

That’s it! This was a super big hit and very filling.  I’m dreaming of all of the other fillings I can put into the next one!

Enjoy everyone!!
