Reviews for Taco Pizza
"Very good! I liked the cornbread-like crust. It didn't take long to make and was very good. I didn't use as much cheese as it called for, because it seemed like too much. Cut back on the cheese and it's awesome!"
"Yummy! Very Filling though and makes a very large pizza, so unless you have a large family expect leftovers."
"I like the cornmeal crust. All the fresh vegetables make it very tasty. I do use only ground beef as I do not always have sausage. I also like making my Pizza Mexican for a change of pace."
