Ingredients

  • 1 loaf (1 pound) frozen bread dough, thawed

    We really liked this recipe. I think the crust would be good with other toppings, too.

    Very tasty and easy to make! My family loved the cheese-stuffed crust. However, the amount of taco seasoning called for in the recipe was too overpowering....next time I will cut the amount in half. I followed the recipe as written, but substituted light string cheese and reduced fat shredded cheeses with good results!

    This is one of my husband's favorites...he requests it often! Low-fat cheese can be used to make it a bit healthier.

    I made this dish tonight for my family. It was absolutely delicious! I fed myself and husband and two kids ages 11 and 7, if you have teenagers or a larger family I would definately recommend making TWO of these pizza's. If my kids had larger appetites one would not have been enough to satisfy us all. My husband thought it was a little salty, I on the other hand thought it was perfect.I would definately make this dinner again or for company.
