MY REVIEW
Reviewed Sep. 5, 2012

I used 1 and a half pizza crusts so that it would fit the pan. Everyone loved it. Two of my kids don't like beans and they loved it. Will def make this again.

MY REVIEW

REALLY good with a little kick. I made this on a pizza pan using thin crust pizza dough. I used half ground turkey breast and half hot Italian sausage; 1/2 taco seasoning and 1/2 fajita seasoning that I had on hand. The meat mixture made twice as much as needed. I used cheddar/jack/pepper-jack cheese; 2 cups lettuce; 1/2 cup crushed tortilla chips and a combination of chopped plum tomato and chopped baby heirloom. I topped mine with a dollop of sour cream.

This was very bland for adults, so needs some extra pizzazz to the meat. Another reviewer's suggestion of adding sour cream and salsa is a good idea. My husband doesn't like turkey, so one could also use beef.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jul. 18, 2009

I made this with my granddaughters, 4 and 2 yrs. old. Putting the pizza dough on a cookie sheet is also too thin, so use a pizza pan. Grandkids liked making an edge with the dough and they were enthralled with sprinkling shredded cheese on top of the meat mixture. They liked the finished pizza immensely! The 4 yr. old asked what we would make next week. :)

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jan. 28, 2009 Edited Mar. 3, 2009

My kids really liked this and so did my husband and I. I used a standard cookie sheet instead of the bigger pan b/c the first time I used it, the crust was too thin for the topping. I also used colby/jack cheese instead of pizza cheese and added sour cream and salsa to the "adults" side. Yummy!
