Wild Taco Pizza with Goat Cheese & Herbs

Taco Pizza with Goat Cheese, Cilantro, Parsley and Oregano

I just made the best taco pizza I have ever tasted. This one goes completely over the top. The picture is a little wild and messy I  know … my herbs were all over the place. But that is exactly what I love about it!

Taco pizzas are very basic right? You smear some refried beans on a pizza crust, add some meat and cheese, then bake till the cheese is melted and add chopped lettuce. Simple!

I just discovered if you add a couple more things, you can elevate your taco pizza to the sublime.

I’ve got to stop making pizzas like this … they are too dang good! I ate the whole thing myself.

Here’s a more civilized photo (before I cut it).

Wild Taco Pizza with Goat Cheese & Herbs

Wild Taco Pizza with Goat Cheese, Cilantro, Parsley and Oregano

  • Whole wheat pita bread or pizza crust
  • Refried beans
  • Taco Meat (you could skip the meat if you’re going meatless!)
  • Chopped onion & jalapeno
  • Shredded Mexican blend of cheeses
  • Chopped tomato
  • Goat cheese crumbles
  • Mixed organic greens
  • Fresh cilantro leaves (& flowers if they are starting to go to seed! I think the cilantro flowers made this pizza intensely wild and lovely.)
  • Fresh oregano leaves
  • Fresh parsley leaves

Directions:

  1. I toasted a whole wheat pita for this, but you could certainly use your favorite pizza crust! If you use a pita, toast it a bit in a 400 degree F. oven (or toaster oven) to give it a bit of crunch.
  2. Shmear on the refried beans.
  3. Sprinkle on the taco meat, then the onion and jalapeno.
  4. Now top all that with your shredded Mexican cheese.
  5. Arrange the tomato pieces around on top of the shredded cheese, then sprinkle with goat cheese.
  6. Bake at 400 degrees for about 12 – 15 minutes or until the cheese is melted and bubbly.
  7. Top with greens and herbs and serve!
Try to share this one. I am not sure I could! (and yes, that is my computer in the background … I was working and eating and couldn’t resist taking one more shot of this wild thing!)
