Mexican Pizza

We love Mexican food (as you can probably tell) and Sheridan’s favorite food is tacos so any variation of that is usually a winner. I found a recipe for Mexican pizza – we like Mexican, we like pizza, so I thought I would give it a shot.


2 (8 ounce) cans refrigerated crescent rolls
1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened
1 cup sour cream
1 pound ground beef
1 (1.25 ounce) package taco seasoning
1 (2.25 ounce) can sliced ripe olives, drained
1 medium tomato, chopped
3/4 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
3/4 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
1 cup shredded lettuce


Unroll crescent roll dough and place in an ungreased 15-in. x 10-in. x 1-in. baking pan. Flatten dough to fit the pan, sealing seams and perforations. Bake at 375 degrees F for 8-10 minutes or until light golden brown; cool. In a small bowl, blend cream cheese and sour cream with a wire whisk; spread over crust. Chill 30 minutes.
Meanwhile, in a skillet, brown beef; drain. Stir in taco seasoning. Add water according to package directions and simmer for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Spread over cream cheese layer. Top with olives, tomato, cheeses and lettuce. Cut into serving-size pieces. Serve immediately or refrigerate.

Pig Rating: Just so-so. He said having that kind of crust with Mexican food was kind of weird.

Mrs. Pig Rating: Just so-so also. It was good but it just kind of tasted like soft tacos to me, nothing really special.

Little Pigs: Sheridan didn’t like it. She likes tacos but the crust she didn’t like. Will ate, well, the black olives. : )

  1. Yum! This looks tasty. I’m definetly going to print this recipe for John and I to try.

  2. Eekk I can’t imagine crescent rolls tasting good. Taco Bell has a mexican pizza with flat taco shells that I love. Maybe you could try it with soft taco shells that you bake for a few mins (put meet and beans between two layers of shell and cheese and tomatoes on top. mmmm damn you now I want taco bell

  3. 🙂 did you know how cheese was invented? It wasnt necessity, it was an accident, read this
