How to make Godfather’s Taco Pizza Recipe

Prepare time: 20 min

Cook time: 25 min

Ready in: 45 min

Serving: 4

Equipment:

  • Prepared pizza dough
  • Deep-dish pizza pans (8-inch)

Ingredients:

  • Nonstick cooking spray
  • 1 can of refried beans
  • 1 lb. ground beef
  • 3/4 cup taco sauce (or salsa)
  • 2 cups mozzarella cheese
  • and 1 – 10-inch deep-dish pizza pan (or pie crust).

Instructions:

Step 1: Preheat the oven to 425°. Spray a 10-inch deep-dish pizza pan with nonstick cooking spray.

Step 2: Prepare the taco meat by dumping the can of refried beans into a medium-sized bowl, and then add the ground beef. Cook this in a large skillet over medium heat, stirring frequently, until it is fully cooked (about 5 minutes).

Step 3: Roll or press out your pizza dough so that it fits into the deep-dish pizza pan (or pie crust). Spread the taco meat over the top of the rolled-out dough, and then pour in the taco sauce.

Step 4: Sprinkle the cheese over top, and bake for about 25 minutes, or until it is golden-brown on top. This will depend on what size pan you use. If using a pie crust instead of a pan, follow your pie crust instructions for baking time.

Health Benefits of Godfather’s Taco Pizza Recipe

This is a fantastic recipe with multiple health benefits. First of all, it is a very low-carb pizza recipe. Secondly, refried beans are a great source of protein and fiber.

The taco meat is also very high in protein and tomatoes (providing additional vitamin C), while the cheese adds additional calcium and protein.

One of the best things about this recipe is that you can switch out certain ingredients to make it your own. It is just like having several different types of tacos in one.

Godfather’s Taco Pizza Calories

This is not a low-calorie meal… the refried beans are around 100 calories each, and the ground beef has about 50.

However, this is an amazing tasting recipe, and filling because it offers protein from the meat and beans along with carbohydrates from the tortilla. One serving will have a total of 1713 calories (including fat).

Godfather’s Taco pizza review

This is one of the best-tasting low-carb pizza recipes that I have ever tasted. It tastes just like a taco in a pizza crust. The best part is that you can change the ingredients to be your own.

You can add different types of cheese (mozzarella or American), different types of meat (ground beef, chicken, or pork), or even make it your own with a homemade taco seasoning base (which will result in a very different but equally wonderful taste).

Godfather’s Taco Pizza price

It can be purchased online from some online stores, but you can also find it at local grocery stores. The price of this pizza recipe is around $4-5 for a single serving.

It has about 500 calories for one serving, so it would cost about $1.20 to make. And it would only serve 2 people (a perfect meal if you are looking to lose weight or just want to save money).

Godfathers Taco sauce

If you want to use a different type of taco sauce, it is called Taco Bell Homestyle Taco Sauce. This has similar ingredients but is not quite as spicy as the one I have used.

What is Mozza loaded crust at godfathers?

It is a deep-dish pizza crust (12 inches) sold by Pizza Hut. It is made with a mozzarella and parmesan combination, and it is a bit firmer than most other pizza crusts (some of them are like eating cardboard).

This pizza can be purchased at any local Pizza Hut location (there are about two in every state and about one in every city).

It was founded in Omaha, Nebraska by Aldo Lamberti (an Italian immigrant). It is still widely popular but only available in the United States.

Conclusion

This is a very tasty low-carb pizza recipe that has a great texture and a unique taste. I would recommend this to anyone that is looking for an authentic taco in a crust alternative. You can try it with other Mexican recipes, or even add different spices to spice it up.

For example, pizza sauce combined with some taco seasoning mix and blended into the deep-dish crust will be very tasty! Just use your imagination and you will find your own Godfather’s Pizza recipe.
