How to Make Sheet Pan Taco Pizza

Prep Time: 20 minutes
Cook Time: 15 minutes
Total Time: 45 minutes
Servings: 6

  1. Preheat your oven according to the puff pastry package instructions, usually at 400°F.
  2. Roll out the puff pastry sheet on a greased or parchment lined sheet pan. Gently press the pastry edges and corners of the sheet pan to make a lip around the border. (like a pizza crust). Pierce the puff pastry with a fork and par bake for 8 minutes.
  3. In a large skillet over medium heat, cook the ground beef with the chopped onions until the meat is no longer pink.
  4. Drain excess fat, then add the taco seasoning and water. Mix well and let it simmer for about 5 minutes, allowing the flavors to meld.
  5. Take the baked puff pastry out of the oven and allow it to cool a bit before layering on your toppings. If it has puffed up a bit, gently press the center down and it will flatten out. 
  6. Spread and cover with warm refried beans then taco filling evenly over the puff pastry, leaving a small border around the edges.
  7. Sprinkle 2 cups of shredded cheddar cheese over the taco filling.
  8. Bake in the preheated oven for about 5-7 minutes, or until the cheese is melted and bubbly.
  9. Remove the pan from the oven then evenly distribute the chopped lettuce, sliced black olives, and sliced roma tomatoes and green onions over the cheese layer.
  10. Allow it to cool slightly before cutting it into squares or rectangles.

Storage and Reheating Instructions

How to Store Sheet Pan Taco Pizza:

Alright, let’s get practical. If by some miracle you have leftovers (I rarely do!), you can store the leftovers. Place the remaining slices in an airtight container. They should be good in the fridge for up to 3 days.

How to Reheat Sheet Pan Taco Pizza:

To reheat your pizza, pop them into a preheated oven at 375°F for about 8-10 minutes, or until warmed through. This keeps the crust crispy. Microwaving? Possible, but not the best option for texture.

Helpful Tips & Substitutions

Can This Be Frozen?

Absolutely! Pre-slice and place it in a freezer-safe container or bag. It should stay fresh for up to a month. To enjoy, thaw overnight in the fridge and follow the reheating steps.

Can This Be Made Ahead of Time?

You betcha! You can prepare the taco filling a day in advance. On the day of your feast, assemble the toppings on the puff pastry, bake, and voilà! Talk about a time-saver.

Substitutions & Variations

So, you’re feeling a bit adventurous or maybe missing an ingredient or two? No worries! Here are some ideas:

  1. Meat Variations: Ground turkey or chicken works as an excellent substitute.
  2. Veggie Delight: Go full vegetarian by using a veggie meat substitute or just pile on more of your favorite veggies.
  3. Cheese Swap: Not a cheddar fan? Try mozzarella, pepper jack, or even feta for a different kick.

Helpful Cooking Notes

Before I send you off to your kitchen, a couple of tips from my own adventures:

  • When it comes to the puff pastry, patience is key. Ensure it’s fully thawed for a dreamy, easy roll-out experience.
  • Don’t skip the par-baking step. Partially baking the puff pastry helps achieve that golden, crispy base we all adore.
  • Lastly, and most importantly, have fun with it! Put on your favorite playlist, dance around, and enjoy the art of creating.

This Sheet Pan Taco Pizza is a perfect twist on two classics, making dinner not only delicious but also a ton of fun. Here’s to the magic of fusion, to delightful discoveries, and to meals that bring us closer. 🌮🍕
