Taco Pizza

Cook's Note: I saw this recipe on Pinterest (don't I always start that way?) and I said to myself ..."I have to make this!" Not only was this DELICIOUS, it was EASY and rather healthy (minus the crust, just don't count the crust!) There was a lot of great flavor here. The crescent rolls as the crust was interesting, but yummy! I was extremely pleased with this creation. 
This was loved by my entire family. It is unique and I will plan to make this again very soon!

What you will need: 

1 pound of Ground Turkey Breast (or ground beef)
1 packet of Taco Seasoning (try to grab the low sodium packet if you can!) 
3 cans of refrigerated Crescent Rolls
1 small tomato, diced (i used Roma Tomato)
1 Bag of Shredded Lettuce
1 Cup of Mexican Shredded Cheese
1 Cup of Mozzarella Shredded Cheese
1 Cup of Light Sour Cream
1 package of 1/3 Less Fat Cream Cheese (room temperature)
1 Avacado (diced) 


Preheat oven to 375 degrees. 

Using a jellyroll pan, spray with non-stick cooking spray and roll out your cans of crescent rolls as the crust from edge to edge. There should be no gaps in between. Pinch the corners together and flat with a spoon if you like, to create a seal. Once all rolled out, you should have one large "pizza crust" going form edge of pan to  edge of pan. Bake for 8-10 minutes or until lightly brown.  Remove from oven and let cool for about 10-15 minutes. 

In your stand mixer (or with a hand mixer) combine the sour cream and cream cheese until whipped well together, until smooth. This will be the "pizza sauce". Set aside or chill in the fridge while your crust cools.

While your crust is cooling, go ahead and brown the meat. Place meat in your skillet and add the packet of taco seasoning and about 1/3 cup of water. Cook according to package directions and until meat is done. Set aside.

Once crust is cooled - spread the "pizza sauce" (aka: sour cream/cream cheese mixture) on the crust, evenly. I used a large rubber spatula. 

Next, sprinkle the meat evenly over crust, then cheeses, and tomato pieces. 

Stick the pizza back in the oven for about 10 minutes (at 375 degrees). Remove and top with shredded lettuce and avocados. 

Cut into squares and ENJOY!
