    Pretty good, although I didn't make it exactly as the recipe was written. I used a 13.8 oz roll of of Pillsbury Classic Crust refrigerated pizza crust, which when unrolled was about the size of a cookie sheet, and used all the toppings on one pizza. Quite a filling meal, and was a hit with my husband!

    Love this! Tastes as good as the taco pizza we get at our local restaurant.

    This is fantastic! We were discussing how to use up some leftovers and my hubby found this recipe. We used the refried beans with green chilies in it to give it a bit more kick. Prebaked crust made it extremely easy and added a bit more crunch. It's now on the menu!

    Loved the warmth from the pizza and the crispness from the lettuce and tomato toppings. A great substitute for taco night!

    All I can say is WOW or that's what my kids said after making this tonight. We searched the internet for a taco pizza recipe and came across this one. We used Jiffy Pizza Crust Mix and Doritos. I added the Doritos after the pizza came out of the oven. We will definitely make again. One of my daughter's said better than a restaurant.

    My Boyfriend absolutely loved this pizza. If anyone want to add a kick to it try crunching up Doritos instead of regular chips on top. yummy yummy!!!!

    This is the best taco pizza we have ever eaten! I used precooked taco meat from our local grocery store and omitted the taco seasoning. I used one cup mild cheddar cheese and one cup mozzarella. Yummy!

    Very Similar to Casey's Taco Pizza. I used the Nacho Cheese flavored Doritos. Topped it off with Ortega Taco sauce..It was good! Quick and easy.

    Everyone in my family loved this pizza! We used a Schwans pizza crust & cooked it on the pizza pizzaz. Only thing I did different was used slightly less hamburger and a little less cheese. I made the full amount of sauce and only had to use half so I froze the other half to use on our next pizza. I highly recommend this recipe. It is a new Friday night favorite in our house! :)

    I omitted the refried bean and salsa because my family does not care for them. I did make sour cream available on the table for those who wanted to dip or spread some on their pizza. It was a hit.
