Everyone loves pizza. Everyone loves taco. So why not have both? Of course! This is a great meal if you need an activity for multiple generations over some food and drink. Relationship
It’s like a pizza but you fold it like a taco and eat it like a taco. It’s fun. It brings the magic of a bonded experience to everyone.
longevity is the magic of this recipe. Imagine one person in the party cooking up the mushrooms, after someone else plays sous chef, and someone else mixes up the sauce. Someone else can pour the wine. Put on some great music in the background and you’ve got a weeknight party.
All the yum, none of the bad.
Marinated veggies from the organic olive bar at my local market make sourcing these ingredients easy.
Tomato Paste (2 tblspns per pizza taco)
Garlic Paste (1 tsp per pizza taco)
Basil Paste (1 tsp per pizza taco)
Balsamic vinegar (2 tsp per pizza taco)
Dried Oregano (2 tspns per pizza taco)
Sea Salt (to taste, I go with 1 tspn per pizza taco)
Sprouted Grain Tortilla (1 per pizza taco)
Shredded Part-Skim Mozzarella Cheese (½ cup per pizza taco)
Tomato, thinly sliced and seeded (i use two cherry tomatoes per pizza taco)
Be sure to cook your mushrooms before putting them on your Pizza Taco.
Carefully put the topped Pizza Tacos onto your pizza stone or baking sheet.
Fresh Basil Leaves (1 to 2 torn per pizza taco)
Red Onions thinly Sliced (per taste per pizza taco)
Uncured Pepperoni (about five slices per pizza taco)
Sauteed Mushrooms (about one cut up per pizza taco)
Artichoke hearts, cut up small (about one heart for a couple of pizza tacos)
Fire Roasted Red peppers, sliced up small
Parmesan cheese, shredded
Hot pepper flakes, to taste
Any other toppings you must have (olives, etc.)
When the pizza is done baking, sprinkle with Parmesan and hot pepper flakes.
Heat oven to 350 degrees. Heat Pizza Stone or Baking Sheet while preparing the rest of the Pizza Taco.
In a small bowl, stir together the tomato paste, garlic paste, basil paste, balsamic vinegar, oregano, and a pinch of salt.
And then you’re ready to eat your Pizza Taco.
Place the tortilla on a flat working surface and spread the tomato sauce mixture evenly over it (remember the 13 clockwise circles). Sprinkle about ⅔ of the ½ cup of mozzarella cheese on top and arrange the pepperoni slices over the cheese. Scatter the other toppings over evenly over the top, then sprinkle remaining mozzarella cheese and the basil leaves.
Put filled tortilla carefully on baking stone or sheet and bake until cheese is melted and sauce is bubbly — about 15 minutes (check after about 10 minutes). Just before serving, sprinkle with Parmesan cheese and hot pepper flakes.
Serve flat on plates and let your guests fold it into the “taco.” Fun, right? Enjoy!
