$5 Bargain Meals - Taco Pizza

WinCo $5 Bargain Meals - all ingredients purchased at WinCo Foods
I am happy to participate in the 5 dollar dinners Bargain Meal of the Week.
For more low budget meals to go Bargain Meals and 1 trip, 1 bag, 5 dinners
Taco Pizza (serves 6)

1 lb. ground beef ($1.98 lb)
Taco seasoning ($.38 McCormick)
Taco chip pieces (get from the bottom of your Taco Chip bag, I save the bottom of the bag for these recipes)
Leonardi's pizza dough (already made dough in the cheese aisle $1.48)
1 cup shredded cheese (Hy-Top $1.00)
1 cup of shredded lettuce ($.50)
1 large tomato, chopped (~$.35)

COOK meat with Taco Seasoning Mix as directed on package. Roll out pizza dough (I put a little corn meal on the bottom of the pan so the dough doesn't stick). Spoon meat onto pizza dough; top with cheese. Place directly on oven rack.

BAKE on 400 degrees for about 12 to 15 min. or until crust is golden brown and cheese is melted.

TOP with lettuce and tomatoes. Crush Taco Shells; sprinkle over pizza. Drizzle with Salsa.

If you like refried beans put a little bit on the pizza dough before you put on the meat.  It's so good.

Total $5.69 for a family of 4 with a little left over for lunch
